Dear Daniel S. Yeah, It sure is, 11 pounds, 5.4 ounces. all of it solid glass. the dimensions are 6-3/4" tall (including the legs) and 7-3/4" from the chin to the top of the head and 6-1/2" wide. the main head portion is 4-3/4" thick all of it solid. In fact, there is not any hollow glass associated with it, the legs are solid as well. Tomorrow I have the day off and will try to send more pictures. Revising or resizing pictures is not no strong point but I did manage to down size the photos I have on now. I saw a message that said something about a load limit on picture size limits. Are you familiar with that? 500 KB? The pics I have on now range fron 240x240 Pixels? Michael.

eeeeeek! Daniel, I hope you don't mind, I'm going to ask a moderator to alter your post to disguise your address - you don't want to get phished!
Cheers, Sue (M)

I was re-reading my replies, David, I would love to send you more pictures like I did for Daniel, Just say the word, or if you know Daniel well enough, ask him to forward them to you. this would be the safest way. Again, I really appreciate each and every input towards this item by everyone, even you Ivo. I am an honest and up front guy, I tell it like it is and do expect the same from my counterparts. Warm Regards Michael Branch.

Hey all, Yesterday I received what may be the last response from the Orrefors glass Co. Kristina Sparr sent me an E-Mail that essentially said that they could not find a definite attribution for the sculpture but suggested two names of designers which could have produced the item. the two names that she mentioned, she said no longer work for Orrefors Glass Co. (Lars Hellsten) or (Jan Johansson). In my previous reply to her, I asked about the script signature and it being not diamond point. There was no rebuttal on that question but I have since found in my own research items online that are signed Orrefors in which the diamond point engraver was not used. these are notable items, so the question by IVO about the linage being suspect has been overcome at least from my perspective. here are three examples I found on E-Bay. there are other examples, I found on the web. 1. Lars Hellsten paperweight bowl item #110627627746. 2. Anne Nilsson Graal vase/bowl #380222328706. 3.Orrefors clear glass bull Item number 350429092228. Again another example of the block lettering with no curved flares to the ends of any individual lettering at www.antiquehelper.com/item362958 although this example was done in diamond point. It seems my research has hit an impasse for now, but I do believe this was made by the Orrefors glass Co. I do plan to resale the item soon as that is what I do, besides Carpentry. Michael.

sorry for a late reply.

The bull isn't even from Orrefors. For me the ORREFORS signature on your sculpture will always be fake. And as OF has confirmed, they don't have it on file.

Dear Daniel, The E-Mails to me from Orrefors describe this item to be a heart sculpture made for a hospital and for a heart surgery unit convention. [edited] I never once said that this was part of the Orrefors normal production run. I never mention that this was produced by an employed Designer at Orrefors. My information is not pulled from thin air but is, and are from direct quotes from the responses back from Orrefors. the item was made at the Orrefors factory and that is factual. the item was produced using Orrefors infrastructure and talent that is factual.[edited] I doubt this Designer was a carpenter who carved her own mold, a gaffer, ect... the facts are that it was indeed made there even though it did not run the course of the normal production procedures such as a Design committee design number etc. The reason for this as I EXPLAIN in my description is that it was made by an outside Designer who was not employed by the company. It is a custom piece. You can certainly say that the signature is fake but [edited] it was indeed made at the factory and edited the infrastructure of the factory was not used to create the sculpture. [edited] Michael
