Here we see some glass birds, all made in West Virginia. The red and green pieces are Fenton: the green one is a two-piece candle holder; the red eagle is a stamped commemorative, bicentennial piece (1976-1776). The blue bookends are BLENKO. I've owned these for years but have seen several pairs for sale lately, especially in amber and clear. Finally, the owl roosting in the back is a Viking ashtray. I don't actively collect glass birds but, over the years, these have flown onto my shelves and I really enjoy them. I have a couple of the Viking glass birds with the long tails; however, they seemed too delicate to hang out with these heavyweights. Notice the birds have been reading a lot lately. They've just finished reading the Appalachians and are moving on to PEANUTS. However, on their "to do list" is to finish reading Senator Byrd's autobiography, "Child of the Appalachian Coalfields."
I'd love to see other readers share their glass bird photos. At the very least, I'm hoping the comments section of your blog will work so that we can get a reaction or two from this one!
