The glass is nice and clear and the piece is free of any chips or nicks. There are visible straw marks at the vase area, but on this particular piece, those are the norm. A real treasure!
Duncan & Miller's Heron is quite a detailed piece. Standing on his right leg, his left leg is drawn up underneath his body so that only his foot is visible. He's compact in size as well....about 6 1/2" tall...
Beautiful figurine in excellent condition.
Crystal clear and in excellent condition, this is the large version of this dish, measuring approximately 12" in length and about 9 1/8" at the highest point. Makes a great centerpiece!

Probably dating to the 1950's or so, this happy pink elephant carries the salt & pepper and oil & vinegar for your dining table. It is hand painted, made in Japan, and was produced by Thames China. In fact, it still retains it's original foil label on the belly of the elephant.

The colorings of these wonderful macaw figurines are so vibrant and cheery that they'll brighten up any room.
Made in Japan and incised "Shafford" on the bases (as shown), I believe that these pieces probably date back to the late 1950's or 60's. And though they are basically the same, there are slight differences in shadings which would allow one to use them as a "pair"...
I am unable to ascertain the age of this piece, but I feel it is more contemporary. And though unmarked, I have seen a very similar piece still bearing a Murano glass label, so I am attributing this piece to that origin as well.
So attractive and different from anything else I've ever owned, this wonderful compote is a very generous 11" in height and approximately 12" in diameter across the top of the bowl...
