It's probably one form the Farm series.
Meant to say it's not pressed, it's cast

Thank you Christine you are right it is cast not pressed, which I guess helps give it part of it's naive or 'crude' appeal (to me).

Farm series? Oh no, more to collect!

John.

Hi John
There was a small paper brochure inserted in the original box for each of the Boda Zoo animals. The brochure depicts the range available at that point. The brochure I have seen shows a Rhino (two model numbers) Bird with curled tail (the same as the one you have purchased), Ibis with curled horn, Large hippo, Small hippo, Swimming hippo (two model numbers), Lion (three model numbers), Large giraffe, Small giraffe, Owl, Donkey, Large rabbit, Small rabbit, Large cat, Small cat, Elephant (two model numbers), Large horse, Small horse, Ram, Rooster, Turtle, Frog, Reindeer, Crocodile - and what I think is a bear but the shape and writing are indistinct.
Happy hunting!
Silvergirl

Thankyou for the info Silvergirl, that is quite a large number of animals to find. I have had the opportunity to buy the Ibis (which was a lovely design) and like a fool I turned it down. Oh well, you live and learn. ;D

Hi John - my typing error - an Ibex rather than an Ibis - but I think we are thinking of the same thing. A rather spectacular little sculpture of a deer/goat like creature with a back curling horn. I have also missed a couple of opportunities to purchase and regretted it.

... I owned some Boda Zoo animals at one time and in researching them Kosta Boda was so nice to send me the list that is mentioned. The list attributes the complete series to Bertil Vallien.

The "confused pressed glass bird" is item nr. 97615-3, rooster (Swedish: "tupp"), height 110 mm.

As for the goats: the one in the picture is item nr. 97619-3, goat (Swedish: "bock"), height 115 mm, while there is also one that is described as Steinbock (Swedish: "stenbock"), height 100 mm (item nr. 97755-3).

For those collecting: look for 39 pieces (at least)  ;)

i´m a bit confused about the goat.
mine is a bit taller than the measure you give, NKP.  ~130mm
did they make different sizes?
