I had a cat which matches your stag.
Right down to the clearer bits at the paws/feet. Is yourstag opalescent and white glass, mixed?
The cat was.

Hello Sue, the stag, I call it a reindeer ! is plain white no opalescence, where do you keep such delicate tiny things like this, at the moment he's inside a Webb bullseye butter dish.  ::) ;D ;D

Look at its feet.  :)
They fade to clear, like the cat's do. You need to hold that bit up to the light to see any opalesence. The tips of its ears are clear. I can't tell about the nose.
I solved my storage problem by giving it to somebody who is fond of cats and has cabinets precisely for such small interesting things. ;D

White all the way down, no blue tinge on feet, ears or tail, here he is 'under glass'  ;D

What I'm seeing must be some farti-act of the photo.  ::)
The blue-y clear tip bits on the cat are quite obvious, but I'd found them and made sure the pics picked it up. They're not quite so obvious in reality.

 ;) Whew. I was beginning to think I was imagining things. The tips of the ears are the same on both too. The modelling on both is superb. They really are tiny.
The bodies are made from opaque white, opalescent and clear glass.

Looking at the reindeer, its antlers have clear glass tips too. Are they cased?
