    This figurine is 4.75" x 3.75" long x 2" wide and weighs 1 lb 2 ounces. It is made of white opalescent and clear glass with a bit of orange glass. Bottom is ground and highly polished. It is very a high quality silly looking figurine. Not sure what the Y-shaped orange thing is supposed to be..... Maybe this is supposed to be a glow in the dark Three Mile Island squirrel eating a mutant carrot? The opalescent glass caught my eye. No label, no marks, no idea of maker or country of origin. Just for fun and because I like it..

      What a lovely squirrel!
      Maybe it’s the artists rendition of a carrot? Lol, either way, I find this little guy very becoming...Tree squirrel for sure ( his tail)..had so many of these as I had 14 English Walnut trees. I let them have all the nuts they wanted except for the two trees in my front yard, (they made a huge mess, ha!)

      Oh, and did you know there are white squirrels? Very elusive, but they’re out there. Maybe your glass squirrel is meant to represent this rarity....

      @Newfld - Thanks, Jenni!

      @Ms.CrystalShip - Thanks for your comments! They can strip my two hazelnut bushes in the blink of an eye. They are much better than I am at judging when they are ready to pick. All I get is the shells, most years. There is a town not far from where I live which is famous for its white/albino squirrels:

      What a wonderful story! I hit the “heart” at the bottom. Sorry about your hazelnut bush. They don’t care about when the walnuts are ripe. The walnut has a thick green husk on it, as it ripens, the husk splits open and out pops the nut. The squirrels can’t wait, so they sit and chew away at the husk until they get to the “green” nut. Walking out under the Walnut grove, you can hear them chewing away! ( that is what makes the mess!) Then to make matters worse, they actually lose 90% of their nuts, forgetting where they put them.Ha!
      And please...call me Eileen :)

      Thanks Eileen! That's a funny story, if you don't have a bunch of walnut trees...... I feed birds and I've never found a way to stop the squirrels from getting into the bird seed. No matter which "squirrel proof" bird feeder I use, they eventually defeat it. So now, I feed the squirrels, too. They won.

      Kevin, comment 10 reminds me of a book I read to my Grandson, “Those Darn Squirrels,”
      The story goes...this old man loves birds, has bird feeders all over his yard. Here come the squirrels, he tries everything to keep the squirrels out. Then comes migrating time, and the birds leave him. He is sad, but then he realizes the squirrels are sticking around and he finally finds joy in watching the little critters, and makes “squirrel feeders”! Everyone’s happy!
