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.

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

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