No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

What does not animal mean in the context of the advert?

I looked at her other items, and she sells mostly animals
mostly almost as horrible as the PW!

Maybe because she's got a millefiore bird/thing paperweight on sale too?  It helps her differentiate.   ::) :chky:

Maybe she's used to seeing and dealing in glass animals and not paperweights.
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.

Nah, it's to distinguish it from John Hurt. "I am not an animal... I am a paperweight"

(That might make more sense if you've seen The Elephant Man.)

It's a 'little' bit of an animal?
