Description

These three cute lampwork glass penguins are black and white with yellow feet and red beaks. We discovered them in our stock collection that was purchased back in the late 1990's, making them new vintage. The penguin sets are all very similar in colour, size and detail. You will be sent a random selection. Gift or keep for yourself for their cuteness.
Each slice of ghost gum was de-barked, cut, sanded then hand brushed with a polyurethane coating to accentuate the grains and natural colour of the timber, giving it a nice shiny finish.
Each base is characterised by its unique texture, shape and colour. Each base is individual - yours will be unique!

* Penguins sizes range between 29mm to 31.5mm high
* Ghost gum bases are approximately 117mm long
(Conversion: 2.5cm = 25mm = approx 1" inch)
Please select from the drop down box if you would like the set on their own or on a piece of ghost gum.  

Penguins are flightless birds. Their wings evolved into flippers that help them swim; they have a dense plumage adapted to the aquatic life that provides insulation from the water and a thick layer of fat that protects them from the harsh conditions of the habitats of some species.
Penguins generally live on islands and remote continental regions free from land predators, where their inability to fly is not detrimental to their survival, they are usually found near nutrient-rich, cold-water currents that provide an abundant supply of food.
Penguins eat a range of fish and other sealife that they catch underwater, they can drink sea water. They spend around half their time in water and the other half on land. The Emperor Penguin is the tallest of all penguin species, reaching as tall as 120cm (47 in) in height.

The common name ghost gum refers to several similar tree species, all of them native to Australia. The various ghost gum species are all large trees with light-coloured bark and evergreen foliage.
Ghost gum (Eucalyptus pauciflora) has other common names in Australia, including cabbage gum and weeping gum, but it's one of several species called ghost gum.
