Yes, I agree Ray.  I've seen some of these canes in other Chinese weights, but not the birds I must admit  :shock:

From the 'leaf' canes I think I recognise this as by the 'Chinese person or persons' I have noted as having a jolly good 'go' at producing something worthwhile!  

The little bird canes are quite cute, aren't they?   :D

I saw a very unusual Chinese paperweight on Ebay last night.  I almost put it on here under the title 'Black Sperm', but I thought it might get the ladies excited.   :shock:  :lol:

It was actually rather unusual and cute, lots of black tadpoles and some greeny fern stuff....almost bought it, then thought Leni would laugh at me.   :lol:  :roll:

 :shock:  :shock:  :shock: Max, I almost bought that one myself!  :shock:  :shock:  :shock:

Actually, the only reason I didn't bid on it was because I was p***ed off with the seller, 'cos she keeps out-bidding me on p'weights I want!   :evil:  :oops:  :roll:  :lol:
