Murano Glass Cockatoo Parrots with reflections of gold, green and blue ribbons of color in the light. These birds are done with the aventurine technique within the glass and perched atop gold flecked clear glass pedestals. The aventurine technique, commonly used in making Murano glass, is done by melting flecks of metal into the hot molten glass. The metal pieces give a flecked metallic appearance to the finished glass sculpture.
Dimensions: 13" tall x 5" wide x 4 Condition: Excellent condition, no chips cracks or damage noted. Every hand blown bird is unique and no two pieces are made the same.Note the darker area within the glass of the breast of one bird. This is not damage, but a variation inside the glass. The more light reflection, the deeper and more color that can be seen in each bird.
