This Beautiful Stuart Abelman Art Glass Swan, was the find of the day 5/22/2018! :^D Kind of a late Birthday gift to myself!(my Birthday was yesterday)
The frosted white iridescent Swan, has clear iridescent wings, and iridescent blue stripes, that reflect pink and green, and flow down the front, and back of its neck, and turn into a pulled feather decor, as it flows down its back, and behind. It is 10 1/2" tall, 6 1/2" long, and 5 1/4" at the widest point of the wings. The Piece is etched marked on the bottom Abelman M33602-42 1997
