      Ken, you always make my day with your kind compliments. This bunny was the hardest glass animal I ever had to photograph, so sculpted that whether in natural or artificial light he was shadowy all over. So very grateful for the nice words J.

      What a little cutie New! With that beautiful red, it definitely stands out... no wallflower here : )
    16. Newfld Newfld, 4 years ago
      Very kind compliment Rick, I appreciate it! He does look red but is actually the dark orange persimmon color- I held him up to other Viking red glass animals to be sure, their reds are more ruby

      I love him!

      Scott I'm so happy you found my Thumper & for the love, I forgot about this post! He is one of my nicest glass animals, a bright deep orangy red, and so heavy, must be leaded glass
    21. KinkiPlz KinkiPlz, 2 years ago
      oh wow intense red!
    22. Newfld Newfld, 2 years ago
      Thank you KinkiPlz & AnythingObscure for the love, glad you liked this rabbit.

      Appreciate the great comment Kinki, yes this Thumper bunny is quite red! In person it has a bit of an orange-red coloring and was sold to me as Persimmon which is a rare Viking color in glass animals, but in my photos it looks to be definitely bright red. Such a heavy piece, I think Viking used leaded glass, but they are very strongly made & impressive

      Thanks Searching & Phil for the thoughtful love for this Viking rabbit, a great find for me for my vintage glass bunny collection

      Searching thank you for your fabulous comment, I too love the bunny's face it was a very good copy of the cartoon character Thumper which I believe was in Bambi - been awhile since I've seen that one!!
