Polish Art Center

If I had an extra hundred bucks. . .
This beautiful amber thimble was handmade in Gdansk, Poland, and is available through the Polish Art Center for $100.00, plus S/H. The website lists the dimensions as .75" x 1" (2 cm x 2.5 cm), and that it is "ringed around the sides with four etched pheasants." I'm not seeing pheasants: I'm seeing flowers. There is another, quite similar thimble on the site that does appear to feature birds, so I think they just copied and pasted all the info from the other page. I like the flower one better, but it could just be the photograph.
