Birds 01
« on: April 29, 2009, 07:00:26 PM »
I've found this bird, one of a pair, and I am wondering if it's from a known glassworks? It's about 7 inches tall, with the body being a bluish-opalescent color with gold inclusions. Any Help is appreciated! Kimberly<p>

Reminds me of the one Javier used to use on his website: http://www.svazzo.com - might be worth checking to see if he still has it on there somewhere. His was pink I think.
