Massive 13 lb handblown art glass goose.

  • Elongated intentional stylized interior air bubble running from the tail to just below the head.
  • Blown by hand in three parts. The solid glass base and bill were hand-formed separately, then applied to the body.
  • Measures 19.5" Tall, 7" at widest point, 5" base. 
  • In excellent condition with heavy bottom wear.  This architectural sized bird weighs 13 lbs.  The weight and age combined creates scratching where the seat of the base meets a surface.  'Bottom-wear' cannot be seen unless the object is turned upside-down.
  • Estimated Circa 1940-1960.
  • Mid-century Italian Murano art glass. ( Click here to read more about Italian made glass. )
  • Maker near certain to be Flavio Poli for Vetreria Seguso.  Flavio Poli, famous for his designs using the "Sommerso" technique, was artistic director for Vetreria Seguso from 1937 - 1963. The company closed in 1972
  • See image 8; this is the body of an identified Flavio Poli 15" tall duck.  The form, decor and master level of artistry are the same.  The internal nearly full-length bubbles are the same.  The base is different.  This 19.5" duck is sitting on a stylized rock because it's so huge it needed a big base. The head and neck, not pictured in image 8, are identical to this duck.  The wings are the same. In image 8, the bubble was tinted grey when blown.  The 19.5" duck offered here is clear, without color.
  • Extremely Rare
