Interesting bird, possibly Dino Martens 2091
« on: October 05, 2006, 05:51:39 PM »
I bought this piece along with some other interesting bit today. As Murano birds go it's a cut above the norm with a very unusual blue and green colour combination and lots of gold. Now I think this may be Dino Martens piece No 2091 from the Aureliano Toso catalogue, but I'd welcome any comments or opinions. Overall height is 4.75 inches including base to the tail tip.

Hi Paul,
I just finished looking over the book, and I see that the style looks like #2091, but the bird itself looks like its #2093, and the decoration from #6033. I know they are in b/w but certainly looks like it.
