Cat Slipper Figurine In Citrine Colored Glass Called Lime Twist :
Cat Slipper Figurine in Citrine colored glass called Lyme Twist.
Except for the cat's head at the tongue, this slipper is a reminder of the kind of shoe worn by women centuries past and is often used as a recurring theme for collectible figurines. The cat's head makes an interesting touch. It can be used as a decorative piece or as a container to serve a number of purposes, such as, holding jewelry, loose change, business cards or small office needs like paper clips and such. It contains a tiny bit of Uranium dioxide which will cause it to fluoresce when exposed to ultraviolet light.
These avocado figurines, although they came from the same batch, range in color. Some are more translucent while a few are more opaque. About the maker of this figurine Boyd Art Glass, a small family-run business in Ohio, has manufactured nearly 300 different colors since 1978. All Boyd glassware is produced in limited quantities--making it very collectible. Because of this limited production, there is a high demand for Boyd Glass and many figurines appreciate in value.
