Up for your consideration is a REALLY PRETTY, Lime Green, Transparent Glass Murano Bird with Crystal Clear, textured Glass wings.

I don't know alot about these Murano Birds. I just started picking up a few along the way as I thought they were so very pretty! But, I already have so many types of glass that I collect, I soon abandoned them, and sold most of them off prior. I had kept two, as they were my favorites, but have now decided to part with them too, in an effort to make room for my first love, Fenton Glass.

This bird is a bit on the larger side. He still retains his original sticker on the back of his neck, and I have up a photo of the sticker for you to see. It's the round red and gold sticker that states "Made in Italy, Murano".

The bird is free of damage, and in wonderful shape. I find no nicks, chips, cracks, fractures, repairs, or discolorations. T aren't even any major air-bubbles in this piece, a few very small ones, but unless held directly to the light and you are looking close, you don't even see those, just a very deep, lime green.

The wings have a sort of ribbed texture to them, and are clear glass. They are wonderfully shaped or posed to resemble the bird in flight.

The tail is green, but does fade out some into a lighter green, as it nears the rounded tips on the tail feathers.

The bird stands 5-1/2" tall from the bottom to the very top tip of the wings. He's just 4" tall from the bottom to the top of his head, and 6" long from the beak to the turned up tail.

In addition to the beautiful green color, his face is highlighted with dark black eyes and beak.

The bottom is as smooth as they come, very polished and smooth.

I will be listing another Green Murano bird this week also, on a separate auction. This one sits on a clear glass branch, and features the gold speckles in the glass. I hope if you are interested, you will take a moment to check it out as well. We love to combine shipping, so any multiple auction wins that can fit safely in one box will safe a few dollars on shipping them together.

Please feel free to ask any questions prior to bidding, we will be happy to reply back to you as fast as possible. Please tho, do try and ask all questions before 12 hours prior to auction end time. Being weekend auctions mostly, we are not always around on Sunday or Monday nights as these items go off.

Thanks for taking the time to view my auctions, and I hope you would have a few more minutes to surf our other listings this week for other nice Fenton pieces, a few reference books and vintage ceramic pieces. My listings will be starting on Sunday AND Monday evenings this week, so please check back often.

Thanks, and Happy ebaying!

We are selling items from our own personal home or glass collections and are trying to thin down the collections and clean house. We must ask that all sales are final, so please do view all photographs we have up on the items, and ask all questions prior to bidding.

We try our very best to describe all items accurately. I do rely HEAVILY on reference books, so please bid accordingly. Because all of these items come from our own collection, we liked nice pieces too. We know all too well the heartache of receiving items from ebay that came with undisclosed damage or weren't at all like photo'd or described. We didn't like it at all, and wouldn't knowingly do that to anybody else.

We describe all items and damage that would affect it's collectibility or value. We DO NOT make mention of normal wear and tear, minor surface scratches from wear and tear, manufacturing issues such as air bubbles, straw marks, rough or heavy seams, misformed shapes/ruffles, basket maker marks, ash deposits, etc.

Please keep in mind most of the glassware items we sell are between 20 -100 years old, and as such cannot be expected to be perfect and new. They have been around for many years and may show some minor signs of wear. WE WILL ONLY MENTIO...
