Hi Gigi - Thanks for taking the time to read all these threads. It's a lot to take in and even more to think about.
Jack put up a photo of the Take-Out and the Tiger so you can get a better idea. I had to take the shot (of the Take-Out) at an angle so you could see the stones as the flaps are up, which makes it a little difficult to see all the Crystals looking straight on.
Have decided to keep Mr. Tiger...his Green Crystal eyes are gorgeous and the enamel work is something else. He's sort of "Strongwaterish" if you will. (Can I say that here?)
These are definitely super solids. Am trying to remember when I found solids as lovely as these for under $150 or $200. Certainly not in the last few years...
Let us know when you receive yours and what you think of it/them/whichever. And have a bottle of Bailey's on hand...one teensy glass is good for the soul.
