The glass cow

I wrote here the other day about my collection of cows, and how I still needed to find a gold one and a glass one for my collection. Very soon after I was able to write here about finding a gold one on eBay, at the suggestion of my friend Pam.

After that success, I went straight on to look for a glass one, and almost immediately found this glass paperweight on offer, which is a straightforward representation of a cow, which is what I like, in a series the manufacturers Princess House describe as 'Pets'. Cows do not often feature in collections of pets, so I immediately bid for it, and was lucky enough to get it. Each of these two cows cost under £20, which doesn't seem too much, when I think what I have paid in the past (well over £100) for some antique pottery ones .

So once again I have Pam to thank ... except that now I am getting hooked on eBay buying again, and shall soon be spending too much if I am not very careful! But I haven't had a new addition to the collection for years, so I am well chuffed.

I thought the standard exchange rate for a cow was three magic beans...
