I thought these might be Pirelli because of the feet and because the colour of the ears match that of my snake charmer's hat.  :lol:
They don't have the three layered eyes  though.  :(

I paid around £2 for the set. Thanks, Tony.

Seems to be lots but of course hard to attribute unlabelled until lots more are known.

Coming soon...

There will be a substantial update to the site soon, just have to photograph them all and organise all the backlog of contributions.... :?

The unknowns and uncertains will be listed too on a separate section to attract identification.

I am happy to take broken labelled examples too.

How would they put a sticker on a dog that size?  :lol:

Perhaps the biggest one held the sticker. Did they originally come in boxes? I've never seen one.

Also, do the sets always come in three's?

me and Frank are not to sure about the boxes, he says that the pirelli glass ware came in plain white boxes, the only one's we've seen boxed are the Guinness Animals that was in an auction a while ago not on ebay, but saying that i might have one boxed on the way, they could of been made in set's of 3's as i've 4 set's of 3's, have you got any Frank?
cheers Ray

Not that came as sets. But the Guinness came as sets of 5 in 2 sizes and the Disney characters are likely to have been setted. It is distinctly likely that selling sets was not impossible!
