Frank - I will send photos of the bird soon.
I smiled when I read your comment about them often being described as an Italian company. When I first started buying these animals I ignored those as I assumed sellers knew what they were selling so probably missed quite a few.
I get a strange sense of achievement when I find a Pirelli piece which is not listed as such and the Glass Zoo is excellent with regards to identification. Mind you, I have made two silly purchases recently. One was two glass dogs which I thought were Pirelli terriers but I hadn't noticed in the listing that they had clear 'hair' near the mouths ( is it hair or whiskers?). The other was a labelled Pirelli rabbit which I did think looked a bit strange, when it arrived it had no nose............sounds like a line from that old song 'My old mans a dustman' which went something like "my dogs got no nose......no nose, well how does he smell then........bloomin horrible". :chky:
I think I need to get another job soon, spending too much time on the computer.
