Buttonfluff, I love your Barbini bird!!! I don't think I have seen one like it either.  Wow, I really like it and by it being uranium makes it even more special.  Great finds you have there.

Thankyou tam bam ,my whole glass collection is unorganised and un specific but im proud of every item i own,but my bird was my best buy --not my colour but too frightened to put it on ebay as its delicate and ive had mixed values on it .... i bargain hunt and altho it sounds mean i only pay a few pounds for anything and that gives me a buzz that i might have got a good bargain --so far ive sold none of my glass i try then i decide i just cant part with it, ive even had to send alot to my mothers as i ran out of room...from piano rests to paperweights to whitefriars and,murano  --im just waiting untill i find that rare baccaratt paperweight that will keep me for life x

You are very wise not to sell Kerryn. 'Sellers remorse' is a dreadful disease,  :cry: and I have suffered badly. I sold the most beautiful Bucella Cristali rabbit.  It was so delicate and beautifully made. (there is a picture in Anita's Murano Zoo if you would like to see it).  Thank goodness I have a permanent record of it, and between you and me, it sold for no money!!

I now only sell pieces I have duplicates of, or pieces that are damaged, and even then I have had 'SR' symptoms, because actually with hand made art glass, there is no such thing as duplicates.....each one is a 'one-off'.

Your birds are beautiful, and both are, I am certain, very valuable. More importantly,  you love them, the best reason for collecting. I love Murano glass, and have a small but bery beautiful collection of birds and ducks....I must let Anita have pictures as soon as I know who made them.

I too cannot part with glass.  It took me a long time to collect what I have and I have been so dedicated to it.  Perhaps one day I will sell but I don't anticipate it very soon.  If and when I do sell or give away my collection I would like to make sure the person will take good care of the pieces like I have all these years. 

I have seen the rabbit you use to have, Rosieposie.  It is a very good one.  I too have animals in Anita's zoo.  Her zoo is a great resource. 

Buttonfluff, I like Baccaratt cystal too.
