I just thought while I was on the subject of birds, if any one can tell me a thing about the following three glass (very small) birds.
I have had the Sparrow and what I call "the Pigeon" (largest of the three) for a couple of years. The emerald one I just purchased.
I saw a guy try to sell a bird like my Sparrow (only it was an ugly yellow and cream color) on eBay for $1000. No way! He said it was a chicken,
but it was obviously, to me anyway, a canary. A week later he came down to $69. What I would like to know is, what are they, Murano?
They look like they could be made out of elongated murrines, but it doesn't matter to me, because I will never sell them. They are very smart
looking! Does anybody if what these are Murano, and if not, what are they. Is there any worth to them, I have been told all kinds of things and just wanted to know if any of you knew what they are. I don't have room to show you the pontils, but they are very reminiscent of Murano. Perfectly flat cut and all the canes come to a circle , leaving a clear surface to see up in them. Thanks for anyone's input!
