Queensday bird

Flew in today. It was not cheap and not big - just 9 cms (3 1/2") but awfully familiar. Bird with one wing up, light green and a ton of gold leaf. Hep me. B&T? Archimede?

Beautiful bird, Ivo. I can't be much help, but the sirene expression and rounded bill make me favor Salviati. Archimede Seguso is another good possibility. I'm glad it had a safe flight -- quite a looker. The color looks blue-green in the picture.
