    This D & E figural is a treasure, from their Sea Life Collection. There’s six figurals—crab, lobster, starfish, seahorse, dolphin, and angelfish! They are as elusive as the unicorn, very hard to come by, so when I saw this piece for the first time up for auction, I could hardly believe my eyes. I now have two out of six. The seahorse has 6 little chatons that make up his tail, and these are usually broke off. I have never seen a dolphin, but would love to.
    Isn't she just beautiful with her shades of pink, and her watermelon body? For being over 50 years old, she is in mint condition. Her 8 little legs are like fringe and dangle so I suppose many lost a leg or two over time. Maybe that’s why they are so hard to come by? I consider her a she as she’s so pretty. ( I know, I’m losing it, but after waiting over a decade for one to come my way, can you blame me?)

      Foseatme, lol, I wanted this too, for a long, long time.

      I am so sorry! I forgot to respond to everyone who loves my pretty crab :(
      So here goes...

      MrsT , You are always there with a sweet comment and support. She is lovely, isn’t she?
      Thank you so much for the “congrats”!

      Ken, I was really lucky to have “won” this piece, which had been alluding me for years. She cost me a bundle, but being as rare as she is, felt well worth the price. Thank you so much for your continued support and kind words.

      Mary, Thank you so much! It was exciting to finally find this little crab. D & E made several “Sealife” figurals. I only have two out of, I believe, six. Here’s hoping....

      And thank you for all the loves, dears!! So appreciated!!

      I had nothing to do with this Ken. In fact, I just got “here”. I’ve been admiring “Art Glass” all morning! But thank you so much for always being in my corner, your comment is very sweet!
