      He reminds me of an armadillo with his long pointy nose! And very seasonal too this time of year, especially now with this cold snap we're having at the moment! He's a warm colour at least :D

      Thank you Lauren for your wonderful comment about this polar bear, indeed it does have a very pointy armadillo-like nose, which we can attribute to the creative interpretation by this Swedish glassmaker. They just have to alter an animal's appearance to make their design different (not only Swedish makers but Murano & many others), which is cool to me as I like something a bit out of the ordinary. Love that warm orangy amber as well

      Phil thank you for your terrific compliment for this bear, and isn't it great the way they can blend the colors in a gradient look, I love that feature in glass

      Thanks Scott for your awesome praise for my polar bear, delighted you enjoyed it and also loved the pretty color, me too
