Hi Jaz Apologies for the slow reply - the message went into my spam filter. Glad you like this fine snowdome. It was produced by Sydney inner west artist Bernie Lishman, who did a series of handmade one off domes of Sydney suburbs and loved places and events, and a couple of Melbourne ones that I'm aware of as well. They were made during the mid- to late 1990s, and I first saw them at the Newtown Festival. Friends even arranged for her to make one for my wedding. From a quick googling she looks to be still making art but not commercially. Sadly Bernie's marvellous work is hard to find, and even op shop finds are very rare.

Hi Sue I've got two swaps. Assuming I can put my hands on one of them, I'd be happy to sell or trade. Its a pretty rare dome, no longer produced so $25 seems reasonable, or if you also collect and have some traders of your own, would be happy to explore what you've got. Let me know. cheers denis

Hi Le, Unfortunately I only have this example, so I am reluctant to sell it. I don't have any traders for it, its an older dome and seems to be pretty rare. If I come across one I promise to get back in touch.

Thanks Bridget. The Merino got moved from its original location closer to the highway. You can still buy woollen wonders, and occasionally snowdomes.

The Big Merino used to be our favourite pit-side stop when it used to take ten and a half hours to drive from Canberra and Sydney. Such a handsome fellow! And we felt chuffed that we'd supported the local wool industry with our interest and small purchases.
