    Just fabulous!
    How large is he?
    The horns are wonderful.

    Could it be Bimini?
  2. manginor manginor, 2 years ago
    About 6 inches tall. Very fragile thin glass. Weights nothing. I wish I knew its origins.

    You know, now that I think about it, this bull has very feminine qualities. The eyelashes and red mouth especially. What kind of liquid would you put in a bull like this? Brandy, hot sauce, whiskey, wine???

    I've found a different one made in hungary by Nyiregyhaza.

    Sangria?

    It symbolizes "financial optimism and prosperity".

    She doesn't give dimensions but it looks small.

    It is small. Again, very dainty. I really enjoyed the you tube video and will call my bull Ferdinand, for sure. About six inches tall. I will measure it when I'm home later. Now to check out these other links. This is great.
