One for the zoo -- cute Archimede Seguso polar bear
« on: July 07, 2012, 10:39:10 AM »
My very first Archimede Seguso piece, found at the fleamarket today:

massive, quite big (21 cm long, 16 cm high) and heavy polar bear in (I guess, not able to check atm -- Uranium) green glass.
I think he's lovely -- though I am not so much into glass animals usually ;)

Beautiful... and I especially love that it's a big, heavy piece and not a dainty 'lil thing. 
What a wonderful buy, Michael.

Thanks!
He is even highly appreciated in my household (I was surprised, as glass animals are not well received here usually ;D)

Well, you can't put flowers or ash in them, so totally useless ;D
