Bird Figurine Series - # 8

  
   Glass figurines have always been among our favourites so Janine and I were thrilled when our mother told us that we could put this one with our collection.  It was a gift she received from a friend over 35 years ago.  Mom knew it would be safe with our birds.

Absolutely beautiful! I've always loved these kinds of figurines. I can't have them in my home right now - a four year old who loves to touch everything makes breakables unwise. But someday, I hope to own beautiful things myself.

You've showcased a lot of very cool bird figurines, but I think this is my favorite one so far. Beautiful.

Have a terrific day Judy. :)

I love these kinds of figurines because their look changes depending on what is reflected in the glass.

This is a gem of an addition to your collection!
