    I have long wanted one of these, so I'm very pleased. The detail is astonishing........right down to the depiction of fingernails. I have it on good authority that they were made from the fifties to modern times.

    I have found one on line with many similarities to this one, same green spatter base, same multiple rod construction for the legs/trousers (with turn ups) and same flecked glass for the clothing. That one has the generic gold Glassexport label reading 'Made in Czechoslovakia' dating it as pre 1993. That's the nearest I can get on date and that isn't certain.

    Height 18 cm./7 inches

      I always liked those figurines very much.They range from the choice of proffesionals to literary characters.

      Me too, Ivonne, and for non musicians like me this one is playing a euphonium.
    3. Ivonne Ivonne, 3 years ago
      To be honest I've never heard about a euphonium but heard about the tuba,so this made me have a short lesson about instruments.We both are right:a euphonium is a kind of tuba.Collecting glass is very educational :)))

      I too have wanted one of these. So wonderfully modeled, and always amusing in their characters.
      He is a marvel of workmanship. Look at his hat, and hair!!

      Ivonne, as the function 'Edit Your Item' has been removed I decided to do some research rather than embarrass myself. The tuba and the sousaphone are the same shape but different in shape from a euphonium. The euphonium is smaller than either but about the same size as a French Horn (which isn't French). The French Horn is a different shape again. We have a tradition of brass (and silver) bands in the UK.

      Brunswick, here in Europe it's not at all unusual to be able to trace the history of a town or a country back to 1342, and beyond. There's a Czech village called Chribska where glass making started in 1414.

      The sax family differs only in size but the tuba family differs in shape. The glass makers have made a surprisingly good representation of a euphonium......hats off to them!

      Unfortunately, Karen, these photos are not the best but there were already comments when I realised that and it's no longer possible to change the photos or anything else for that matter!

      However you are right, the detail is impressive. You can see creases around his eyes and on his brow. You can see that he has finger nails! Keep looking.....they don't all go for an eye watering price!

      An absolute delight Peggy! Love him! :)

      Thank you, Lesley :) I admit I keep going to look at him, in all his glorious detail!

      What a fun piece! These figurines are such charming examples of the glassmaker's art. I used to have a figural thermometer with a small custard glass duck afloat on a lily pad type base made by same maker. Had a paper label. Sold now sadly...

      Sounds cute, IronLace :)
