      I love that bull brooch! He's very proud and bright eyed looking. I imagine him peering over a farmer's gate somewhere and the plate is a really lovely and calm colour(Kinda like a swimming pool?!) :D

      A very nice combo - green eyes on the bull - very cool

      My thanks everyone for the bull love

      Thanks Lauren for the sweet compliments, yes the brooch seems very alive looking with those big eyes (one is somewhat hidden, you have to turn the head a bit sideways), and you are perfectly right that round plate is certainly swimming pool colored, perhaps it attracted me into thinking that summer is very near!

      Great compliment Hoot thank you very much, so glad you enjoyed the combo here. The eyes of a bull are always so intriguing and intelligent in the bull ring, they stare down the matador and "size him up" before they charge, it is just really awful that they kill them for the sport you know

      Thanks Mary for the love, so glad you liked this bull pair

      You remembered! Thank you, I was just going to put a love and then read some comments. :-)

      You're welcome Lisa, and I hope you had or will have a wonderful birthday & great year of collecting your gorgeous glass!

      Thank you for the kind love

      Thanx Ken for the wonderful comment I always loved this Castlecliff bull head brooch but missed out on getting it a few times & finally got lucky. Yes it is a gentler look than the fierce one most bulls have

      I think it looks a bit like Elsie, the Borden? cow. Sweet. I'm a Taurus, too.
    9. Newfld Newfld, 10 months ago
      Yes Maureen I totally agree the bull looks more like a cow esp Elsie, good call! Always nice to find another CW Taurus, your sign ruled by Venus is the lover of beauty with the eye for beauty and you certainly have that with your gorgeous collection :)
