    PAIR of Murano Art Glass Birds (Pheasants) by Barovier & Toso. Probably from the late 40s-early 50s. Yes a *PAIR* of pink birds with gold highlights. Male and female bird. Very thick heavy bases on them. Base has pontil scar, ground/polished, and shows wear. The pheasants also have shiny white eye with floating pupil. Barovier & Toso animals have this characteristic. One suffered damage in the trip - but at least it was a clear break and NOT a zillion pieces.

    ~ MALE Bird is about: 9 inches tall, and about 12 inches long from tip of tail to beak (about 2.5 pounds). The Male also has a couple of leaves on the base stem, where the female does not.

    ~ FEMALE Bird is about: 7.5 inches tall, and about 10.5 inches long (about 2 pounds). ***The one with damage (to be fixed).***

    Yes a PAIR. I plan to have the one repaired!! It is worth it, and to keep them as a Pair!

    Something Similar shape, but different inside design:

      Hi Antique Rose

      Repairing murano glass is almost impossible as when each item is made, the furnaces plan and make the oxides they will use in each days batch so a repair will NEVER look the same. We can help with an alternative if you are interested
