      Tommy?! It's a rather unusual name for him- Tommy the tiger! Just curious did you name him or was he named by Boyd Glass? :)
      I love his dark green vivid colour, that particular shade of emerald green is one of my favourites, his sculpting too is so youthful and babyish like a real tiger cub, recently born and very vulnerable in the zoo!

      Ken thank you so much, emerald is one of my favorite shades of green, it looks so nice in glass animal form

      Lol Thomas for the kind smile, I loved the songs from Wizard of Oz, this is one tiger I'm not scared of, he doesn't growl!

      Thanks Lauren and yes, Boyd Glass named him Tommy, many of their glass animals were on the small side so they gave them cute names - another is Sonny the gorilla, rather silly for such predatory animals right. He does have a sweet baby look too, thank you for the wonderful compliments

      Eileen thank you for the sweet words, yes the glassmaker sort of used tonal shades of green so it does appear furry I agree :) My favorite is that cute wondrous face & big eyes, he's not scary at all

      Thanks MrsT for the lovely compliment, really glad you liked lil Tommy here

      I know Roycroft, I used to be amazed at the older TV shows like Honey West that showed ladies walking wild cats, not for me! Thank you for the great comment and yes, having a pretty good day too the weather is still summery in NY so we take it when we can get it
