This exquisite original mid century art glass Murano Bird Sculpture features Adventurine Art Glass (gold metal flecks embedded in the glass to reflect light and movement). The high plinth base is truly elegant as is the large flowing design of this bird sculpture. There is no damage; it came from a lifetime collection of an antique dealer. Height is an impressive 12.5", width approximately 8", on a 4" by 4" base. The Murano glass artist known for this technique was Archimede Seguso. An extremely fine piece of art glass, this mid century Murano glass sculpture embodies the best of Italian master artists.
