decypher my bear. ID = Mats Jonasson pre 1977

Bear paperweight with an extensive signature which fully escapes me. Does any maker spring to mind?

It's an R with lots of numbers then M Jonasson.

So Mats Jonasson the R number will be the catalogue identifier.

Brilliant - found it thank you very much. The first 2 letters turn out to be RK for Royal Krona - so it predates 1977.

Nice piece Ivo... there is a whole set to collect including hedgehogs (small & large) and a badger...  you can't just have one,  you have to have the set!! :)

Is that permission to collect glass animals then Dirk?

Ivo, there is a pair of hedgehogs, a seal, and a panda on ebay at the moment all in the same set!!

I already own a full set of varmints so I will pass these by, thank you.  But if you're investing in the set, this bear is willing to travel.

It's a bit congested here thanks Ivo,  with about 700 varmints ( I like that word, as well as Anik's 'critters') to d**t, John would have a blue fit...especially as a new Janku doggie arrived yesterday!  ;D
