    This Elegant Murano Bird Of Paradise Sculpture has been in my collection for some time. It was made by Alfredo Barbini circa 1950's, and is my favorite of this style of bird he's known for. It is made of cased white, green and gold glass with a heavy use of gold leaf throughout. It's a nice size piece standing 14"and sits proudly on a gold infused branch and base. As always, thanks for looking.
