    Kurata glass have had a diverse and large output in their time, and they certainly have been pretty good at glass animals.

    This nice little critter, made as a gift for those born in Year of the Rat, is made from clear glass with gold inclusions and little beady black eyes.
    I think they got the posture exactly right!

    So, if your Chinese Zodiac is the rat, you would have been born in one of these periods:
    01/24/1936-02/10/1937
    02/10/1948-01/28/1949
    01/28/1960-02/14/1961
    02/15/1972-02/02/1973
    02/02/1984-02/19/1985

    You are supposedly:
    Sanguine, adaptable, personable, curious, popular and wealthy.
    BUT, you apparently are also:
    Obstinate, selfish, timid, and lack concentration and stability.

    Height 9cm (3.5in)

      Oh he's fabulous Karen. I was born in the year of the rat, I'm still waiting to be wealthy, lol.

      Thanks Fran. The monkey is out this year, rat is away. Your post reminded me of him so thanks! (does this mean I have too much stuff?)

      I am very sorry you are not wealthy.......

      Don't think I've ever seen a glass rat before, but he is cute-that's the kind of rat I wouldn't mind having ;)

      Thanks Mrs T! He's a lot cuter than a breathing one.
