Vintage Folk Art Glass Mosaic Rat!

Regular price $48.00

This mosaic creation mounted on wood panel made me laugh when I found it, but it might just be my new favorite thing. In significant part that is because I believe it is a giant rat that is depicted, in shimmery shades of brown, with gold background, and best of all metallic green eye and very long white whiskers! Perhaps is Ben, the killer rat from the 1970s movie of the same name that inspired this one, but I'm more inclined to think its maker had a pet rat they were very fond of, as this seems quite a loving tribute! 

8" x 7 7/8" and in very good condition, no losses. Initialed in one corner on the back but only the first initial, A, is clear. I would think 1970s or 80s.
