This bird is flying in Australia
« on: November 09, 2009, 01:58:13 AM »
Kept an eye on this bird sculpture. It seems to be the most expensive piece of murano to sell on our ebay. It is at $2500 or US2300 and still going, 6 hours left. It is claimed to be by Vistosi in 1962.

Just thought a couple of you might be interested in having a look.

item no 270479042281

regards
Clean and Crisp a Murano twist.
Archimede tops my list.

Yes, I noticed him yesterday.  They are pretty pricey.  Too pricey for my blood but I do like his designs.
