Finally will be getting around to posting some of my buys here for a while.....stay tuned......LOL
I will start with my most precious ones I got. A pair of Pink Glass birds with Gold in them. I found them on-line (not Fleabay) but ALAS the female bird incurred a break on the trip here. I will *try* to fix her, but I still love them.
~ Pair of pink birds, with gold highlights. Male and female bird
~ Very thick heavy bases on them that I have not seen before.
~ Base has pontil scar
~ Base has also been ground, and shows wear
~ Male Bird
is about: 9 inches tall, and about 12 inches long from tip of tail to beak (about 2.5 pounds). The Male also has a couple of leaves on the base stem, where the female does not.
~ Female Bird
is about: 7.5 inches tall, and about 10.5 inches long (about 2 pounds)Are these birds
: Pheasants, or Roadrunner, or what?
I can find some glass bird but alot of them are more in the *pecking stance* with their Head down, and the tail up. I can not find any like these.
I am hoping "I did Good" on these. That they are very old, and perhaps Venetian. There is quite a bit of dirt in the grooves of the tails I have yet to clean out.......carefully......lol.
Any idea on the age, maker, or any other info at all on them?
They WILL go with my Murano PINK lamps, and some of the other (many) pink things I have here. I guess I am into some Pink Glass now......LOL.....as I now have a collection.
I DO LOVE THEM
