I have had this piece for many years. He used to sit on top of the kitchen cabinets in my old apartment, and once scary day my cat climbed up there and knocked him down(!). OMG I heard a sound of shattering, and came running into the kitchen, only to find my glass cutting board in a million pieces and Mr. Yellow Apple lying on the kitchen floor! Amazingly, he came out unscathed, except for a small chip on his nose (where he hit the cutting board!), that I don't think is even visible in the picture.
A wonderful, rare piece. Except for the matching string holder, I believe he is the only yellow apple produced by PY. Others are often called yellow apples, but are actually lemons.
