Kosta Zoo animals help please
« on: May 12, 2007, 09:02:51 PM »
I'm collecting these and have the hippo, lion and goat. However I don't know how many there are and what they are. A friend of mine has just listed several on ebay. I emailed him and asked if he was certain they were all Kosta and he said no. He bought them all in a shoe box and because the hippo was in there he assumed. If anyone knows, could they please look at his listings and tell me.

Thanks

Hiya Pat - I think that the giraffe is OK - I've had a hippo, giraffe, rhinoceros and lion.

The seller you linked has a Stag on now (with chip) large images from several angles would be highly appreciated for the Glass Zoo.  :)

hi Bill.
so the lion´s attribution to Erik Höglund is an internet-spreading misinformation?
