They look the same as the Kerry birds listed...

Told you I stayed up late to catch you 'foreigners'!

I don't think your little birds are Kerry Glass...as yours are a little more sophisticated in design, with little wings, more in the style of Glory Art Glass, Isle of Wight birds, but the colours are beautiful.
Have a look at this link,  but I am not sure thry are exactly the same as yours??

Rosie, us foreigners appreciate that :) It's a lonely board when everyone is asleep LOL

Those birds do look a bit like mine :)

Keith, my two little ones are relatives also, but they are very similar to the whitefriars. And someone has to buy the ugly ones :)

Lol... that brought back an old memory. I once dated a man who proposed marriage to me by saying:  Anik, you're fat and ugly and no one will ever want you, so I'll do you a favour and marry you.

I went home and cried.  Then I started thinking that 'ugly' is purely subjective, and that at 53kg, how fat could I really be?  So, yes, I dumped him.

Unfortunately at the time, I did not realise this man was a sociopath.  You cannot finish with sociopaths.  They have to finish with you. But that's all in the past.  :)

Well we should declare this the 'Year of Womanly Beauty'  and be proud of ourselves.  I am a rather plumptious lady,  but my smile deflects from that ( I hope!).
Beauty comes from within and an attitude of mind....you are lovely Anik, as are all we GMB ladies.
Next year we should have a Ladies Calendar girls calendar, with bits of our glass collection covering the bits and pieces we want to hide!!
Sorry....lets get back to 'Show me yours, I'll show you mine'...or is it the same thread? :hj:
