Very nice Sue, thanks, can you email originals please.

Now how big is a 5p coin, it is a while since I was in the UK and cannot recall! Although I can remember a shillings size - I think they changed the size since I left too.

Which makes the penguin about 20mm which is smaller than my lion. I show it again here, 33mm long overall. (http://www.debook.com/animal/components/com_virtuemart/shop_image/product/42fe429dd501e203ce1fff00d3d9848c.jpg)

Sorry Sue

I think l can beat you. l have the smallest of the biggest animal on earth. And much smaller than 5p coin see
photo.  In fact l have a whole family of glass elephants, 5 in all. I put them on display at my shop and one customer wants to buy them so far. But l told him they are not for sale.  What do you think should l sell them?
Then for how much? Any comment will be welcome :Sue & Frank.

Frank, I can't remember if I showed you my Glassblobbery Hare.  I told David Pryce-Jones I collected hares and he made him for me, on the spot!  :D
