August 30, 2009Thrifting Find of the Week – Vintage Blown Glass Italian Cockatoos
Here is my most recent thrifting find. Two fabulous vintage hand-blown glass birds from Murano, Italy. They are about a foot tall, and are matching but not identical. I picked these up while I was at Goodwill, for a surprising $6 for the pair. Amazing.
Unfortunatly, this is another thing Tom and I don’t agree on. He doesn’t like the birds, but I love them. I think they look great on the new table in the living room, the gold sparkles inside the perches they sit on looks really good with the other accent pieces.
Tom thinks they look ok on the table, but he says he could think of better things to go there. Right now, they are on the table, so we will see what happens. Marriage is all about compromise, right? Maybe the awesome birds will have to be listed online for some lucky collector in the future.
Right now, they are happily perched in our living room.
