Here, we offer for Your consideration an outstanding example of a Murano, Glass Masters work. I have over 90 hand blown Art Glass birds. This is the only one I have seen, or owned in the millefiori design.and colors of Red White,and Blue...A Yankee ,Muranese?? this beautiful bird has a soft white body with submerged, multi colored millefiori cuts,a lovely,applied crest, beak,eyes and tail. This fine work of art was executed at Arte de Veti Muranese,Cristaleria. who tried to emulate Formia's success with avian forms but, never, quite. Beautiful Art Work though .One sure way to tell the difference between the two...Cristaleria did not always do the time consuming "final polish to their bases..This fellow stands an impressive 16+ Inches tall, and weighs, a more impressive...7.50 Pounds. Condition:::a couple of glass tool scuffs to the side of the base, probably when affixing the wide heavy tail. Would polish out .Pricing will reflect this. Remainder... Pristine
