    Today at the Flea Market, after purchasing the Danish Smiling Rider on Donkey Figurine, from yesterday, at a price that the seller and I agreed on, I started my search for new treasures. I found a few things, but it was a slow day(sometimes a good thing :^D), after a couple of hours of walking from one side to the other a few times, I was about ready to head home, when I came across these two Bird Decanters. I knew that the Glass was Murano, and that the Duck was Alabastro, by Archimede Seguso, but the designs I had never seen as the top of a Decanter, for Girolamo Luxardo Cherry Ardo, an Italian Cherry Wine. After searching, I found that this had been made in the late 1960's, but I don't know the age for sure. I was very lucky to get both the Decanters, one full, and the other empty, for a very good price! :^D

    The Murano Glass Birds, are both removeable, by unscrewing them from a screw in the top of the Decanter. The Duck and Decanter are 14 1/4" tall, and the stylized Pheasant, and Decanter are a total of 16" tall, the Decanters are 5" tall, and 6" across the ground and polished pontil base!

    Thank you for looking, all comments are welcome! :^)
