Lampwork horses and a kangaroo !
« on: August 18, 2017, 01:31:05 PM »
The horses are2 inches high and the 'roo' 4 inches, all came from Cradley home of the Swingewood family so thought it worth adding to the collection, probably turn out to be made miles away but I like them anyway  ;D ;D
The kangaroo needs a wash !  :o ;D

Do you think Kanga originally contained some 'roo juice?
Nice little finds, Keith. :)

I'm afraid I know absolutely nothing about alcoholic drinks... these days. 8)
But it wouldn't have held much beer. :)

Your little kangaroo is a similar type of glass animal to my little Rynbende elephant, used to hold licquer which was ID'd not too long ago.
Also seen here http://www.rynbende.com/glassanimals.php - scroll half way down.  Looks like someone wants one badly :)

kangaroo is definitely a miniature liqueur bottle.
My father has a collection of these, various animals, (no two are truly identical, and would have been individually hand blown at a flame) many of which still contain their drink and one group came as a presentation box.
