Bunny on Nest
« on: October 16, 2006, 03:51:56 AM »

I have a glass bunny on a nest. I believe it is by L.E. Smith.

This bunny is not all yellow glass though. The front is lavender and the back is yellow.

I think it seems really unusual and I was wondering if anyone has any insights into this coloring.

Thank you so much!

Looks like Ametrine Stone to me. You find these crystals in nature: Amethyst and Citrine at the same time - both describe the same mineral.
Is your bunny on nest heavy? Approximate size?

If it is in fact glass, are there moud seems visible?

More photos (base!) could be helpful...

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

According to this eBay auction it was made by L.E. Smith Glass.
