    This is a stunning Murano bird sculpture designed by Alfredo Barbini circa 1950's. It depicts two birds on branches as they prepare to drink the flower's nectar. It's is a well-made piece as evidenced by the deep ribbing and twisted branches as well as the applied open wings of the birds. The birds, as well as the the tree and base, are infused with gold aventurine. It's a fairly large piece measuring 13 1/2" H x 13" D x 5" W. Thanks for looking.

      That is just glorious Rick. How do you keep such a thing safe, and clean of drool?

      Top Shelf.... great piece
    8. kerry10456 kerry10456, 5 years ago
      LOL, commented before reading other comments, was referring to this being "Top Shelf" item, but works for answer to Karen lol
    9. Rick55 Rick55, 5 years ago
      Thanks so much Sean, I value your opinion!

      Thank you Karen... actually, I just sold it but could not post it until it came off of ebay. (CW rules)

      Thank you Kerry I always appreciate your comments!

      Thanks so much for the love Vlad!
    10. Rick55 Rick55, 5 years ago
      Thanks Ken. I'm not sure what you mean by more info on the sold part?
    11. Rick55 Rick55, 5 years ago
      You can't post something on CW that is for sale or, I believe, auction. That's why I have to wait until an item sells before I can post it.
    12. Rick55 Rick55, 5 years ago
      That's up to you. When I sell an item that I posted long ago, I don't remove it.
    13. Rick55 Rick55, 5 years ago
      Thanks for the love MFT, Nice and Budek!
    14. Rick55 Rick55, 5 years ago

      ~ Man, how does one package something like this SO fragile, Rick ?? Gosh, that would be so hard to do.......?

      Thank you Rick and Gloria for sharing this beautiful piece and the information on the rules. I don't sell anything but am thinking about it. :)
      Don't tell anybody but I didn't read the rules.
      I really look forward to your finds.!!
    19. Rick55 Rick55, 5 years ago
      Thank you so much OGF! I think the rule pertains more to new CW posts of items you're currently selling. From what I understand, CW doesn't want you using this forum to advertise your "for sale" items. Also, thanks for the love Anna!

      @Rosie... Thanks, it is a beautiful piece, but I'm no longer collecting sculptures, so I bought it strictly to sell. As far as packing... I have Gloria to thank. She's been doing it for quite a while and is very methodical, taking her time to make sure everything is over-packed.
    20. Rick55 Rick55, 5 years ago
      Thanks Lisa. Yes, I agree it's a great piece that I wish I had room for, but unfortunately my vases take up most of my space.

      Rick
    21. Rick55 Rick55, 5 years ago
      @Lisa... LOL!

      Thanks Silvia!
