    Hello Everyone.
    Good Evening for Ontario.12-06-2018
    If you look my profile, i love to collect everything unusual, not only Jewelry and Art Glass, but i wide range of items, you just see the tip of the iceberg, i just show a picture few years ago of 1 area in my basement, enormous stack of Art Work, it's not better today, it's worst, this is just for let you know, i am mentally disturb and old, :-(
    I have more jewelry to share later tonight but first just go back in the 60s, some of you probably remember this nodding Tiger, it's a very rare survival of this era, you don't see them anymore.
    A miracle happen to me yesterday at my local thrift shop, never expected to find this ESSO Plastic nodding Tiger, this bring some memory, as my father use to have one on the back window of our family car in the 60s.
    "PUT SOME TIGER IN YOUR CAR" The advertising say !

    This Tiger is 11.50 inches long, 5 inches high at the head area and 4 inches the overall body.

    Many thanks for looking.

      Great find and your not ill or have any problem, I'm the same way. People tell me to get rid of some of my things, ( to them of course ) but I tell them their all paid for and I like changing my displays every so often. If your like me you will always find room. :)
