Measurements: 10 1/4" high at the tip of its beak 7 3/4" front to back 3 1/2 wide It weighs about 5 pounds Condition is Very Good! 2 scratches as shown in pictures. No chips, flea bites or cracks. The amazing tip of the pelican's beak is perfect as are the feather tips and tail!
And the base has only the slightest signs of being placed on a surface. Excellent care has been taken with this piece.
As seen in the photos there are a few tiny bubbles and a fleck or two as is expected in hand blown Murano glass. The color is amazing, as is the clarity of the glass.
