Sorry to be a bit of a broken record but I have been going through my Hoya boxes and found this set. I'm sure I have not posted it before.
A set of three intaglio crystal plates (or coasters), all showing different tigers. These would have been produced as part of the Chinese astrology series,and by the sticker maybe 1980s.
I don't think the excellence of these can be contested. Exquisite drawings that have been cut so well into the crystal.
Tigers make lots of sounds. They growl, snarl, roar, whoof, meow, chuff, and they also do something called pooking.
So pooks and chuffs to you!
