Title: Alexandrite Cased Cat, Mouse, Wombat ...
Post by: horochar on July 01, 2008, 10:40:54 AM
I'm assuming this cute little critter was meant to be a cat, but it's pretty mousey for a cat.  More important to me would be to know the maker and vintage.  Although not easy to see in the photo, it is alexandrite (purple) glass encasing light blue, quite beautiful to the eye.  The person I bought it from, who is middle aged, says it was her mother's, so I'm guessing it was produced circa 1950s/1960s.  Cenedese?  A. Seguso?
Thanks as always,
Charles.
