Is there a moderator about?
The title of this thread needs a tweak, this item is not the Ibix but the Steinbok.

Thanks.

Sorry, I'm still confused.  :) Is it definitely the Steinbok? John says possibly the Steinbok, but hadn't seen it, and peejyweejy found the piece in the collection, which suggests that it's Kosta Boda, but the link doesn't say what it's supposed to represent - is it close enough to give a definitive answer yet?

I'm assuming that the English word is Ibex and the German/Africaans word for the same animal is Steinbok.  Though Steinbok seems to be used as a generic term for any horned goat/antelope.  Me? I'd call the piece an Ibex,

No, the Kosta Boda model of the Ibex only has the one curly horn.

Why don't you email the glass club and ask if you can have a contact email for "Ed"

Sorry for the confusion, as I understand it, this is the Ibex.

The critter with the two curly horns in this thread I believe to be the Steinbok as it looks a lot like the images and depictions I was able to find.

Given my track record with glass animals it may of course be a Giraffe. ;D
