Who made my "sculpture" please ?
« on: September 08, 2006, 12:24:02 PM »

I was just wondering if anyone could tell me who might have made this wonderful large bird sculpture.

It is very large, the bird has a wingspan of 14", its 8" tall and 10" long. It is also VERY heavy!

The way it looks as though it is flying over the waves is really clever and well done.

I wondered if it may be Italian, but really am not sure at all so have put on the main glass board and the Murano board.

I've scoured my glass books and found in Pina Circa Fifties Glass on page 48

"Crystal dolphin figure attributed to Seguso Vertri d'arte, full figure perched on an ocean wave pedistal"

which looks as though it could be from the same stable, so to speak, as mine.
