    Jonah may have been swallowed by a whale, but not this one. The surprise inside this guy is a tiny little orange fish that looks like the sword tails I used to keep in my aquariums. It measure 8 1/2" from his nose to the tip of his tail. The bottom is polished flat with no marks or labels. The fins kind of obscure the fish inside so it's hard to get a good picture of him. A little bit of fun from GW this morning. -Mike-

      Thanks Zowie :) I did see a couple online but very little info and nothing about a maker.

      I'll have to keep my eye open I love glass there's so much that can be done with it & it may sound strange but it has a cleanness about it with out it being sterile. Have a great day
