    Fifth Avenue Glass Toucan
    Approximately 7 1/2"

    This is a glass Toucan made by fifth avenue, a company that makes lots of different decorative objects like this. From what I have found, they made 2 versions of this bird...the other would be an 11" version. It is signed by the artist on the bottom, although I can't read the signature.

    Can be used as a paperweight or just decoration.

    Searching for info, it's funny how every seller that has a glass object for sale tries to associate it with"murano glass"....

      I guess it does look like Toucan Sam..ha ha. And looking at the difference between toucans and pelicans...one of the main differences are the habitat and colors..so by the colors I believe you are correct...a toucan. Good catch..
