IF AD IS UP.... ITEM IS STILL AVAILABLE.
Mom is now 92 years old and we have moved her to Guest House Owned by my sister and brother in law in Middleton.

Mom has had this wonderful murano glass penguin for over 30 years. She bought at an antique shop in Portland, Oregon and is either Archimede Seguso design or Alfredo Barbini. It measures 10.25" tall and very, very heavy.. solid glass weighing 4 pounds 11 ounces. She paid over $300 for it when she got it but has old repair on the beak about 1/2 inch in from the end of beak. The repair was done by previous owner so was this is the way it was when she bought it (see pictures). Also at the bottom of the sculpture has been fitted with mounting so you can screw this onto a marble or wood base. Several years ago We found it in an old issue of Italian Glass Century 20 by Leslie Pina and it booked at over $500.
Email if any questions... all sales are final. CASH only!

If interested in viewing let me know what city you live in and when (day and time) you would like to come by and look at this item and I'll get back to you with contact information, directions, etc. I'm retired so can show it daytimes too or early evenings. I live on Flamingo Avenue over by Home Depot in Nampa. Also I do porch pickups or viewings and if you can wear a face mask fine.. Actually I can talk thru storm door if you don't want to wear a mask.  Your choice.
