I bought this swan in 1990 and have kept it in my collection. It is time to part with it. The swan is beautifully done with controlled bubbles in the clear glass. It has a highly polished bottom. I believe this to be Murano glass of the 1960's. The head, neck, wings, and tail have an overcoat of gold. The gold has a bit of oxidation, but very minor. The swan measures 3 3/4" tall. No chips or cracks.
