Sorry about the mixup. Here is a better photo of the peace that Harry made under Carls instruction. Also photos of recent finds. We have been looking for a peace of Montys for a while and Bev had Dave make her the cat and mouse. Dave said the cane was probley made by him or Jesse. Shortly before Harry moved to Florida he left us some boxes of glass he had made. Weasked him to sign these peaces so we could pass them down to later generations of the family to let them know what kind of work and workmanship he did for a living.
