Help to ID this blue glass cat. ID = Mosser
« on: January 05, 2017, 05:59:01 PM »
Any help to ID this blue glass cat please. Excellent detail including its fur coat.

Not sure if its Bristol blue or even its age. Could it be Victorian or is it a lot later.  My thoughts are that it does have some age .
He is made from solid glass and has a strange mark on the base.

Weighs approx. 115gm
Height 3"

Thanks Roy

I suspect it might well be Mosser. If it doesn't have an M on it somewhere, it will be later than ~ '84, I think. I can't remember off-hand the exact date they stopped putting the M on.

I did check, by searching for "Mosser blue cat" images.
But when I search the web, I don't seem to end up finding any links to post here for the confirmation.
They're all very strangely organised, on things I'm not part of.
