I've been meaning to sign up here for ages, I collect the miniature glass animals from the 60s and 70s.
I collect them for fun, and would like to find out more about them, and share my collection..
Today, I purchased this glass vase, because I've never seen anything quite like it before. It may originally have had a lid. It seems to have some age to it, because it has surface scratches on the base
even though it shows in the photo as a black background its on a blue glass background
it has a strange texture, it's not smooth.
The lady I purchased it from, said it was her Mother IN Laws. She said she travelled in Europe a lot, I asked her if she ever went to the Mediterranean ?sp? because at a complete guess, from my little knowledge of my glass animals, id say that;s where it was from.
it has a few nibbles around the rim. it measures around 13cm tall.
I just wondered if anyone could tell me a little more about it.
I love the vivid colours, oranges, reds, blues and greens!
Hope I've entered the pics ok.
