Only cafe threads and inappropriate comments get removed. Your post will still be there, loitering sadly on its own!

I can actually imagine it filled with sweeties for the winter seasonal idiocy......  :-\

How much does it hold?
Can I fit a bottle of ginger beer (275ml) in it with a chocolate ice-cream float?  :D
Cheers, Sue (M)

Three Wise Women would have asked for directions, arrived on time, delivered the baby, cleaned the stables and made a casserole...

And there WOULD have been peace on earth.

No, not Erik Hoglund. My first thought was Empoli because of the colour, i shouldn't go off colours alone though.

I thought American and maybe Viking Glass but absolutely no idea why.

As for Hoglund I am not sure whether to laugh or cry at that suggestion but there are (likely) Japanese made lookalikes of his People decanters to be found but they are a fair bit cruder than your shocked looking hairy non angel with a bell.... Where is that hiding behind a sofa icon?

Laugh, John.  :P
It's more fun, and we seem to be enjoying a silly thread here anyway.

And there was me, considering a German or Austrian maker - because they're so big on the Christmas Markets - and I can see this belonging in one of them.

I'd better box this one back up until November!

find a cork that fits, and sell her with a bag of sweeties to fill her for a Christmas stocking.  I would buy her for that....but not til just before Christmas.  I happen to think they are rather sweet  :)

I think I saw a stall selling different size corks on a market. Now, where was that?

Think about ecclesiastic glassware... hint of choristic angel.

Well, someone loved it enough to buy it. Packed and ready for the postie tomorrow. Fare-the-well my sweet glass angel, with an odd little face!
