Pirelli Kangaroo
« on: January 16, 2006, 06:41:47 AM »
Hi,
I have just joined this site as I am trying to find out more about a Pirelli Kangaroo. I work for a Social Service Agency in New Zealand. We have a major fundraiser each year of old or antique items. I research and price glass for this event. We recently had a Pirelli Kangaroo donated and I am interested in learning about it so that I can include some background info for the sale especially age. I'm not sure if you are interested in a photo of it for the Pirelli site. It has blue ears and a blue tail and the joey has blue ears as well. The Kangaroo has it's Pirelli label on it.

Thanks
GG

Hi GG,

A picture is always welcomed for the catalogue, front and side view please.

There is very little chance of ever dating these beyond 1945-80 until a worker or two can be found... which seems unlikely now.

Look forward to seeing it too.

Thanks for posting.

Hi,
Thanks for the quick reply. I'll work on a photo.  Can I post it to the Forum or what. I was offering because on the Pirelli web page it said that you were looking for more examples to add. So I'm not sure where best to send it.

Regards
GG
