Salviati Cobalt Blue Sommerso Duck

A sitting blue duck in an excellent condition.

A lovely sitting duck, I believe made by Salviati in the 1950s, similar examples can be seen at this very informative site about Murano glass animals CLICK HERE

The duck has a clear beak(fine gold flecks hard to see), which graduates in colour, from cobalt blue at head, to wisps of blue by the time it reaches the tail, see pictures below. The duck is clear, the dark lines and marks are from inner reflections. It is a lovely cobalt blue, which is a colour Im afraid digital cameras dont pick up well, shows much paler than it is.

In an excellent condition, no chips or cracks, the odd grain of sand, only felt not seen, and tiny dimple in wing, both from when made. Has a smooth polished base with minimal signs of wear.

Measures approx 13.5cm at longest by 8.5cm tall, weight is 0.438kg unpacked.
