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.
