Pink elephant by Archimede Seguso
« on: October 26, 2014, 04:30:59 PM »
Cute elephant, pink glass, ears and back "paws" in Neodymium glass (the front legs show a thin Neodymium casing as well, so maybe the whole piece is cased).
Stands 13 cm tall, circular polished pontil mark, oval A. Seguso label to the base.

Thanks for looking!
Michael

As the pink elephant is on display atm, I noticed that it shows lovely reflections inside the glass (best seen in pic 3 of my previous post).
I guess that must be due to the pink-cased-in-neodymium...

And one more Archimede Seguso elephant for my collection, different shape, very nice blue opaline colour.
18 cm high, just a generic label this time.
