I'm thrilled for you Craig, and very glad that the bookends were there for you to see as well.
I vowed I would never pack any glass away but would keep getting more cabinets made....but there is only so much wall space, so I have (like many of you) resorted to putting my damaged glass that is still 'special', away in boxes along with the 'overflow' of pieces that I can't bear to part with.
The doggie is amongst them, and I will bookmark this thread so that if I come across him when I am rummaging through the boxes, I will take a picture and post it here.
I do have a very good memory for glass animals though and I KNOW it is the same maker, Cenedese.
Yes, a very lovely gift.
