Pink and Green Bullicante Bird
« on: September 21, 2012, 04:07:04 PM »
Hi - I wonder if anybody can help with this bird -

It has pink and green streaks with bullicante bubbles; six tail feathers and green eyes. It's head turns to one side slightly.

TIA,

robbo

It is beautifully modelled, but it looks as if Gunther von Hagen has been at it....

Three Wise Women would have asked for directions, arrived on time, delivered the baby, cleaned the stables and made a casserole...

And there WOULD have been peace on earth.

How long is it, robbo? I would say it is Murano glass, perhaps Fratelli Toso or Barovier & Toso based on the streaks and bubbles.

Thanks Anita,

It's 11.5cm, beak to tail. I saw the Barovier & Toso and Fratelli Toso ones with the streaks and bubbles in the zoo but nothing in this shape so wasn't sure.

I think it is beautiful and so carefully made... and like you Anita, I was thinking Barovier & Toso.
 I am trying to see if there is anything like it I can post for you Robbo.

It is a nice bird. I was hoping the size would tell us something, but it is in neutral territory. I don't know which of the companies it is. I hope we can find one like it with a label.
