      I never realized this was a bird until I read the title- I'm still seeing a tropical fish! :P
      (I have fish on the brain!) :D but now I see the little bird, maybe a swallow or swift? The colour's are lovely though, and unusual, they have a two tone look to them, like a flame? Or a phoenix?!

      Many thanks everyone for the love

      Thanks MrsT for your great comment, yes the amberina color in glass is very pretty with two or three warm color blends, one of my fave glass varieties

      Thank you Shuzbut for your super comment this bird must also be lovely in clear glass, it gives that illusion of flying over water almost like a gull and yes, it sure was a lucky find for me

      Lol Lauren, again you're right I can see an upward fish tail in the bird's wing angle! Flame color is a good description for this glass, it has a deep red center than the wings become gold, I thought it was a nice version of this bird, and it is also called a thrush. Wonderful comment & keen observ as always, thanks so much

      Scott thank you for the warm praise and very glad you enjoyed this bird, he is hollow inside the bottom but still rather a heavy piece, gotta watch which shelf I put him on to keep him safe

      Thanks Phil for your fab compliments I am thrilled that you enjoyed the color and design, the original older design was from the 1940s when glass figures had a lot of style, the wavy base is very deco looking I thought

      Sweet swallow.
      Gotta say Jenni you do take great photos.

      Karen that's a fab compliment, your photos are such perfection that I can only aspire to taking good ones, thank you for the lovely praise. I have to admit I've improved since starting here, by trial & error you have to work with poses & lighting - you know when a pic is "off,' then I feel that I'm letting the poor animal down so I keep trying! Always grateful for the luv too :)
