clear glass penguins on frosted glass base
« on: July 16, 2019, 05:34:54 PM »
I am a newbie here and just relocated to Italy for work

the different types of glass here fascinate me and over the past few weeks I have purchased over 30 pieces, all of which are quite different

so maybe somebody has seen a figurine like attached and can share some info about it ?

it is a relatively heavy piece, the base is sort of oval 11 x 10 cm and the taller penguin is 13 cm high

Hi and welcome to the board. I believe this is an RCR (Royal Crystal Rock) piece, made in Italy.
Cheers! Anne, da tekniqual wizzerd

thank you

I am happy it was made in Italy and it will make a wonderful gift for EUR 3 that I paid for it ;-)
