Title: some lampwork figures by Joseph Traut - Jostra

Hi
I have resized some pics from the Jostra catalog figurines section, I really need to get the whole thing scanned.

There's a cockerel there that has been thought to be Pirelli.  :o
And I had two of the frog musician figurines, but gave them to my BIL.

Thank-you so much for sharing this.  :)

Sue I was hoping you'd see this.
I thought of your cat when I saw the catalogue pages :)  but I don't think it's the same is it?

The really tiny opalescent Siamese one? It's not really like those is it?
Leni has that now. She's an oriental cat person, I'm just a moggie-sort.  :)

Piccies.
It might be, after all m. The cat on the page is walking off the edge... ;D

It's not dissimilar to the style of the cat imho.
I'm not sure how 'exactly the same' these items are v the catalogues.

There will be variations with the things being so small and individually made, but I reckon it takes incredible individual skill to make them so realistic and full of movement.
You can almost see the muscles under the skin. You certainly know they're there. :)

A better pic of cat, don't know if it helps and a few more bits.

Their cat has whiskers Sue - do you think that might rule it out for yours/Leni's?  It's probably a 'marker' isn't it?

That was precisely what caused my doubts.
But then I wondered if it was possible they got added to the drawing by mistake, or just not put on because of the impossibility on something so small. ;D

In my experience the items would be as portrayed in the catalog so the delicate whiskers are most probably going to be there if it's Jostra.
Small and delicate is what this family specialised in :-)
