Bought this just because it was different - would like to know more about it.   If it's cheap Chinese I don't mind LOL :-)

It's just arrived via ebay and what a strange thing!   The base is reddish brown filled with tiny bubbles and hollow. It is nevertheless very heavy for its size - about 5 inches tall. No marks at all that I cam find and no obvious signs of wear , the ground base is matte so hard to tell if it has any age. Is it a cat?

Hi dragonqueen,

Sounds like you have used a photo from the eBay listing? Unless you have permission for use, it is against the rules here as it is a copyrighted image.

Please add a post with your own photo and then we can retain the info.

I have permission - the previous owner is also interested in finding out what this is.
