Shown here,for Your consideration: An Elegant example of Murano glass art at its finest. This,in the form of a Special Edition, of an avian sculpture, executed by a Master Glass Artist at the FORMIA,Art Glass Studios of Murano,Italy.. These bird sculptures, especially in this larger size and Pristine condition are highly coveted by both new,and advanced collectors alike. The condition of this bird,(As New)..as the day,the Glass Maestro, put the final, high polish on the base.and remaining in this condition,for over half a century,speaks to the high regard held for this beautiful work of art by its previous owners. The millions of tiny "dusty"rose, pink chablis,and gold inclusions "floating"in the crystal clear glass body,actually change color and depth as your viewing angle ,and or light spectrum changes..Unbelievable !! Formia,is still producing bird sculptures, but none of the Original Editions, and when the new birds start at $460.00,these birds are quite a bargain. I don't know exactly how many different Species of birds Formia produced, I will be listing at least a dozen different species from my collection Enough!! This beautiful bird stands 15 inches high and weighs in at a hefty,5.25 pounds. Condition: As New
