Our beautiful glass figurines apply to many people - both those who have a favourite pet, and those who simply love great design.
In this glass terminology the natural order regarding colours of animal males and females does not exist. Our pair of ducks is colourful with dominant blue and green added a twist of red, yellow and orange. The same applies to the lying glass duck which base colour is dark blue with red, yellow and green stripes.
The glass fish brings colours to life with their beautiful rainbow colours or slightly more subdued orange and black fishe. The black-and-white striped fish is an abstract sculpture, which is ideal on a dresser, bookshelf or windowsill for young people who mainly keep their home décor in white colours. An obvious contrast to the white walls, furniture, etc. is the black glass figurines of swans and chickens. The same applies to the green frog, which will undoubtedly attract the attention of any visitor.
The cute little turtles with shield in different colours are decorative ornaments on the coffee table or on a shelf. They do not take up much space but make a positive input.
Some of the recently added glass figurines are cats, mice and penguins in white and black. Glass cats are great gifts for cat lovers and small, thick penguins bring a smile on most people's lips. We have also just added two cute glass clowns to the collection along with two very colourfull glass elephants and a seashell.

Elephant - Hindu god
Hinduism has 330 gods - one of the most popular gods is Ganesha - characterized by his elephant head.
Ganesha means the one who removes all barriers. He is the god for peace, success and self-indulgence.
In India the elephant earns a lot of respect in the society and is a major part of a lot of rituals. Ie. an elephant is hired to crack a coconut when a new store is opened - or he gives a politician a wreth around the neck before the election begins. Both rituals are to grant success to the receiver.
In the hindu temples in India elephants bless the visitors - granting them success and a peacefull life.
