funny how intriguing some glass animals/birds can become - although much of the reason I bought this one is because of the degree of wear on the base, which I think you can see as a mat area in the pic.- and made me think there might be some age. The quality ground pontil make me think it may not be quite as 'tacky' as I first thought. Saying that I haven't seen one before means nothing, as I have discovered, but I'm hoping some one has. Size about 25 cms. tall by about 16 cms. at the widest. Gives a good 'ding' when flicked. thanks for looking. Paul S.
