New Zealand Collections Limited Edition cat
« on: June 04, 2013, 09:13:55 AM »
I am trying to find out the manufacturer of this cat.  Googling only gave me debt collectors....not what I wanted!!

I would also be interested to find out what sort of number was involved in the 'Limited Edition'

The so-called 'NZ Collection' is also called the 'NZ Collection by Murphy'. It means glass made in China for marketing in NZ. I suspect it is limited only by the gullibility of those who think it is made in NZ. There is a lot of it about on NZ's TradeMe auction site, but these days less frequently referred to as 'made in NZ', which the marketing on the glass itself carefully avoids saying.

Thanks for the information.  I kinda suspected something like that.  And when it says 'Limited Edition' without saying number XX of XX, you know they are mass produced somewhere.
