This Murano glass bushytail carving was made by Leland Boone. It has inlaid turquoise eyes in a sweet face. It has a very fat tail which makes us wonder if it is a fox, but you get to decide!
Lena Boone is Leland's mother. She saw Murano glass vases in a store quite a number of years ago and was inspired to try to use one as carving material. It turned out to be a good move for the whole family.
Size: 1.325" H x 1.125" L x 1.125" W
