My name is William R. (Randy) Nelson. It is possible that you panther could be as old as the 1920'2 - 1940's. These were very popular art deco souvenir items bought, obviously, in San Francisco. The eyes are green glass and the panther is a polished black glass that was produced in a mold for sale to the tourists. These items are gaining in popularity as souvenir collectibles and should be insured for @ $120.00 as long as it has no damage. If you are interested in selling it, you can expect to get @ $45.00 - $60.00 is you are selling it as a private individual. Very cool piece!!
