These birds were all recently sold to a collector friend of mine but of course I still miss them!
Multi Glass were, and are, the Japanese masters of glass birds. The blue pair in the last photo have been made in the smaller revived Multi Glass studio, post 2000. The other more ornate birds on branches were made before 1999 when the original Multi Glass Company was still operating. The artist who made these retired when the company closed down but had spent some time training the current artist continuing to make Multi Glass birds and animals.
I think them all so beautiful, and like most Japanese glass very well made. I am finding it harder and harder to find the old MG bids on branches, and their price is increasing. So they should, the quality and style are so good.
Small birds are generally around 10cm high, the birds on branches between 30cm and 40cm.
