Firstly ASRO is most probably the pattern or design name.
Wreath marks are quite common on Japanese wares and often attributable to Noritake and this ASRO china may or may not have been manufactured by the Noritake company.
Noritake have used more than 400 marks in their history. You could also look at Moriyama Mori-machi and Nippon Yoko Boeki Co.
Elephant marks can sometimes be attributed to the Tashiro Shoten porcelain shop in Yokohama.
They did use an Elephant head circled in a wreath and their products included Trico, Trico China and Royal Trico.
Other Elephant marks are associated with the Silesia Earthenware Works of Breslau, Silesia and an American company called the Steubenville Pottery Co of Steubenville, Ohio who use an Elephant stamp on their Ivory Ware.

ASRO Germany mark by: John M.
There's a question about this mark on the ebay pottery board. It shows the word GERMANY over the mark, in the same red ink.

Wh are ASRO by: Neil P.
Which company makes the ASRO china designs?
My Mum has a tea pot with the same markings, except the wreath is missing, or worn away. It was her mothers and was a wedding present in the early 20thC. My grandfather did spend some time in the USA so that's another possibility. I have spent a few hours looking online for more information but got nowhere.
