I just caught wind of the new findings on your horse, Anita.  Very good detective work.  I knew it had to be special.  That is fabulous that you found out who made it.  A. Seguso's animals are by far superb.  Way to go!!!!!! :rah:

P.S. Rose - I agree that anything 99 years or younger is Vintage and 100+ is antique.  This is what I was told when I worked in a lamp & antique store.

Thanks Tam Bam for telling me your definition is the same.  I hate when I see something advertised as *Antique* from 1970's....LOL.  Go figure ??

Thanks, Martin. It has the honored position of being on my file cabinet. It is a stout fellow. I love the pasta glass.

(I've been looking for your candleholder with no luck. I know I've seen it somewhere.)

the "pasta" technique really sets it apart from other examples,
but i love the way the limbs are applied, it sort of gives life to the shire/workhorse idea.
