Anyone seen this young lady before? Picked up recently in Waterford from a house with long connections with the glass. They did a ram paperweight of very similar design...so was wondering if this was a prototype that never went into production? Shes 6" long by 3 high and wide.

It's probably not...just took a closer look tonight. The Waterford labrador is the only bit of Wfd I have, a much bluer metal than the sheep. Also the sheep has a slightly concave polished base, unlike the labrador which is as flat as a board. The sheep is as clear a glass as it gets, and the fleece doesn't quite match the Wfd ram. Quite a bit of base wear though, which seems incongruous if its purpose was a paperweight. Extensive internet searching has revealed nothing identical so an intigueing piece.

I wonder if yours might be Dansk? Replacements.com show a similar looking one in their nativity set for Dansk: https://www.replacements.com/webquote/co_dacnatf.htm
