    Although not the most detailed piece, I believe the artist made up for it with his blending of the rich, vibrant colors. I marvel at his ability to mate the red feathered back with the green and gold feathered breast. I've never seen how this technique is done, but I'm assuming he must have been -or still is- a highly skilled glass blower. She stands 15" h and is in pristine condition. As always, thanks for looking.

      I've been thinking about a little competition for a while and I think in light of all that's been going on this would be a good time. I don't want to give any details yet to keep it fair . And I do want EVERYONE to feel comfortable about joining in. I will post details and get it started tomorrow if no problems come up .
      Pass it on.

      Rick, do you think this is a Venetian piece?
    20. Rick55 Rick55, 6 years ago
      It's very possible Deano. It was sold to me as Murano - in my early days of collecting - but I've been unable to prove or disprove it as I've never found a match.
