I know Pirelli made Disney characters, Gary, but the Donald Duck isn't shown in Angela's 2013 Pirelli Glass calendar - it may well be Pirelli -  I just can't confirm it.

I hope so too, Gary, as I have alerted her to the topic here for you.  8)

I have just re-read the bit on Disney characters in Angela's introductory book* on London Lampworkers, where she says, "the set of Walt Disney figures, some of which are shown in this picture" and the photo shows Lady and The Tramp, Goofy, and Mickey Mouse.

I seem to recall when we discussed these a month or so ago that she mentioned a Donald Duck.  The book I have does not mention any of the other Disney characters, but I suspect they will be in the full Pirelli volume which is to follow this introductory volume.

Oooh Gary, something has just occurred to me... in the 1st Glass Calendar I did for the board, for 2007, Frank supplied the image for the month of May, which shows a Pirelli Donald Duck along with a couple of other pieces of related glassware.  If you don't have a copy of the 2007 Calendar file you can download a copy from here:

 ;)

I think your Loch Ness Monster is right - it looks just like the beast I saw rising from the waters of Loch Ness when I was 5 years old... although I seem to remember there was some reddish colouring on the tops of the humps as well as green - it was a bit eosin glaze like, but not shiney.  ;) 8)
