A pair of birds
« on: October 26, 2006, 07:39:41 PM »
Tropical birds, (I think) tallest one measuring 6.25 inches high. I quite liked these so I snapped them up.

Murano, Russian or Pirelli?

The twisted feet on one of the birds puts me off them being Pirelli. I won't ask why one bird has twisted feet and the other one doesn't.  :roll:  :?

It's got the little nobs on the ends of the feet and other places. The yellowy, orangey colour beak is typical (I think) and the breast, not sure if it sticks out on the Pirelli one's though? The leaves are typical too, aren't they? Not too cartoony though so I don't know about them being Pirelli.

Surprisingly thick glass on the back leg of the foot.
