This Italian art glass toucan was sculpted in a riot of colors that include red, green, yellow, black and white. The flared wings and 4 inch tall base are clear glass and the eyes are yellow with black pupils. The remainder of the bird is cased in clear glass over the body and beak. It is a beautifully handcrafted art glass piece made in Murano where glass sculpting is a very old art. It is an excellent quality, heavy glass sculpture weighing 2 pounds 5 ounces.
The base has a few tiny bubbles and one 1/8 inch long narrow one. There are also two tiny flaws on the edge of the base which cannot be seen unless the toucan is completely turned over—they cannot be felt. This figure stands 7 ¼ inches tall, 7 inches from tail to beak and the bottom of the base is 2 inches across.
We take our decorating seriously but we are always happy to include some fun. This witty and elegant art glass toucan will add a welcome burst of color wherever he alights.
