Did You Ever Notice?

I wouldn't be upset to have a Van with two different doors! It's an oddity, and you know how rare they are! Look at the gold teapot, prototype. I really like it all gold!

Did you ever notice the Statue of Liberty (I think) is made out of 4 different parts? The base is two different pieces, the body is a seperate piece attached to the base and the raised arm and head is another piece. My head is more matte than the rest of the body.

I enjoy looking at your pics and descriptions of other solids too, especially since I don't have a lot of them or mulitples to compare. You are doing well bringing the excitement back to collecting solids!! Thanks!!

Just trying to keep things interesting although I am running out of things to notice!
Would love to hear from some other members about neet or intetesting solid details.

Trying to determine the spacing of some shelves for solids had me looking for the tallest. My first thought was that it would be the Ferris Wheel. Then realized that the Sparkling Mermaid was taller. Looking further found the Statue of Liberty was the tallest I have. Is this really it? Anyone know of one that has more height?

Did you ever notice some of the packaging varies, this solid has packaging similar to the plain gold box from Las Vegas but inside it does have an insert to hold the solid in place and also a sticker on the back. Did you also ever notice that the hatboxes have "limited edition" stamped on the back of the gold Estee Lauder tag

Lisa-- This is such a great topic.
I am wearing a path in the carpet running to the curio cabinet to take a look.
My question --- Why didn't I see all this before.
Thanks for giving us a second look at our solids.

Some I have noticed are Birdcage,Jack in The Box, Carousel, Rocking Horse, even some of the Cameos have similar designs.
Were these designed by the same designer or were these copied?
Which were made first, some of the other solids look older than the EL ones ?
I'm not sure of who they are made by but have just noticed these simialities while looking at ebay.
Is this okay to do ,for someone else to copy designs from another ?
Hope someone maybe able to shed some light.
I have been wondering about this for a while but when this topic came up thought it might be okay to ask.

Never noticed words on the back of the hat box tag before.
Today I was doing some rearranging and happened to notice that the necklace chains on the Full Moon and the Good Fortune are the same. Much heavier than any other EL necklace I've seen. Sent me heading to the book to check year of issue. 1972 for the Moon and c1970s for the Budda Might have even been the same year. Ya think maybe?
