Who made my pretty controlled bubble neodymium elephant?
« on: January 27, 2011, 04:32:38 PM »
Hello everyone~
I think it's most likely Italian, but not sure. I've looked in my Glass Animals book and my one Italian glass book, to no avail. It's 6" tall to the tip of its trunk and about 2 1/2" wide. Nice controlled bubbles, ground & polished bottom. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!

Hi, just a guess really to start things off, but maybe it is Czech, by Zelezny Brod?  They used neodymium glass quite often, and also made quite a lot of animals.
