Blue mermaid figurine is NOT Walther glass!
« on: December 02, 2006, 06:22:08 PM »
I've listed this on ebay and have a bazillion lookers, which has really surprised me - so I've done some more looking and I'm wondering if this is Walther glass?  I sure hope I have the glassgallery photo thing worked out right -
 :? 5 inches tall, oblong base 3.5 X 4 inches.

I wouldn't guess Walther of Germany, I am afraid

Reminds me of the little mermaid statue at Copenhagen, so I would be thinking possibly Holmegaard or at least Scandinavian.
