Oh well done!  It is rather nice for that small amount.

Now you can properly attribute it and make a FORTUNE!

Paul, not that I don't trust your judgement but do you think I ought to get more opinions on the Murano board? I actually bought it for myself but then I often do that and then sell something. Just in case.

Lovely bird, and with that base, I would say most probably 1950s Murano glass. It's going to be very difficult to attribute it to any one maker, although Alfredo Barbini is a strong contender. I've never seen one quite like it (which is a good thing). I especially like the yellow murrine eye.

Well the bird arrived in one piece-and I wonder how. Wrapped in bubble in a loosely tied bag of poly chips. This bag then placed in a box with 2" of space all around it and sliding around in the box. The 'wear' on the back at the bottom is actually 2 fleabites-however I can live with those they are very small because THE BIRD IS BEAUTIFUL! Held in the light the blcak and silver neck shows purple. It really is a delight.

Will we get some better pics then, Pat?

Maybe it can be attributed better if it can be seen from more angles.

I tried and tried to get a photo of the purple neck in the light but it would not come out. Anyway here are more pics of it and the bottom.
