    Here is the highlight of my glass animal collection, a 9"H x 12"W, six pound lavender ice glass flying mare sculpture, which was perhaps the crowning design by Royal Hickman for Heisey ca 1951-1952, then reissued for the Heisey Collectors of America (HCA) by Dalzell Viking in 1993-1994 in a limited edition in this lavender ice color, which bears the HCA imprint on its base in the clouds (seen in pic 4 closeup, apologies for excess light exposure).
    I never expected to acquire this large impressive horse for my collection as they are almost always priced in the thousands, but seeing it on auction at an affordable price was unbelievable, and I got really lucky to win it. Hope you enjoy this Hickman deco design masterpiece and happy to share it with you :)

      Congrats on such a lovely piece!! So much fun to get a deal!

      Jenni, I'm so happy for you to have won this incredible piece of art, and thank you for sharing it with us. I thought it was a stallion, but to know the artist prefered a female title makes it even more surprising. I'm really at a loss for words, as it has to be the most exceptional piece of animal glass I have ever witnessed. The color is striking as is the "mare's" pose, like she is soaring through the clouds. ( and she doesn't even need wings!)
      Stunning aeronautical masterpiece!

      Very nice horse here, and she's in a wonderful pose it reminds me of the decoration on the front of some sleek vintage car- she seem's to be really leaping forward as if over some precipice or some other wild rocky ledge, and is a really nice colour too!

      Thank you everyone for the love for my special horse

      Scott thank you so much for the super compliments, I still can't believe that I own such an amazing piece, I held my breath when opening the pkge & was incredulous that such a heavy glass piece could arrive in the mail in perfect condition, whew!

      Thanks very much Ken for the warm compliments, if you're familiar with my recent glass animal posts, I'm rather enchanted with the retro Heisey designs especially those designed by Mr Hickman, what a talented man

      Appreciate the kind words MrsT, indeed it was a very sweet deal, happened to be a mid week day auction so not a lot of bidders, and the seller was an experienced antiques dealer so it was a very happy day when I won it - since moving is expensive I hadn't purchased any really fine glass animals in awhile, so this was very exciting for me

      Eileen I am truly grateful you are sincerely happy for me, I know that you know the feeling of scoring a "coup" you never expected to find! Yes it is such a powerful looking horse you would think a stallion, but Hickman had designed other horses so perhaps he felt the need to create a beautiful lady horse for a change (the curling mane does look quite feminine). Thank you for the really wonderful compliments

      Lauren thank you for the lovely words and yes I agree, could be a fancy car hood ornament (Mustang maybe), and also she does appear to be running or leaping at top speed! I really love the lavender color too, when Heisey gave their designs to other glass companies they chose this color in both clear and frosted versions (I have a bull in the frosted or satin lavender), and my favorite color is purple so this is particularly special to me :)

      Wow Jenni, I am gobsmacked. I have never seen a piece remotely like this before. Congrats on your find!
      Purple - gotta love that.
    7. Newfld Newfld, 1 year ago
      Karen thank you for the fabulous praise, I am still stunned to have this amazing horsey in my collection, what a super lucky find it was. I've always loved these sleek animals too because I took riding lessons as a young teen, so have a lot of respect for horses as well. Light purple is a great glass color here, so happy you enjoyed this my friend, always grateful for your thoughtfulness
