Temuka string mouse

Temuka string mouse

Post  Maryr on Sat 1 Mar - 15:31

On the site there are a couple of queries about this wee mouse, and I am going to be so bold as to say it's Temuka. I have one on my shelves and its glaze is identical to all that brown dinnerware. 13 cm nose to tail.

I agree 100% with your call on Temuka, as the glaze tells me this loud and clear Smile

Although I can't help but wonder why the hole is on the back of its neck and not where its tail would be?! Shouldn't the string come out looking like its tail? But I still love it! LOL. Wink

Hole on back of neck is for a little pair of scissors that makes its 'ears' it should also have somewhere for the string to come out the back Smile hon john's example shows with the scissors

Maryr, you are most welcome to have a browse, just give me plenty of warning first so I can get out boxes, plus get rid of hubby for a while, I don't think he would want to know just how much I have salted away here! (ahem!)  Embarassed

Well talk about coincidence! Just a few days after mentioning the fact that I have not seen a string mouse for sale, I find one in an op shop today! Filthy black but scrubbed up well and now sitting on bench with scissors and string.  Very Happy

 scratch Thanks. I am divided on the Temuka aspect. I looked at the bottom and first thought, hmm, the clay is a lot whiter, Riverstone clay is off-white. Then the glaze has subtle differences compared to my sugar bowl and coffee cup that I grabbed out of the cupboard. Little starbursts of goldy colour that are not on mouse. I will read my books in the weekend. I am still pleased to have it even if it turns out to be made somewhere else.  Smile
