On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 451

This glass bowl consists of a shallow, round basin that supports four birds and a vase on its rim. While the basin of the slightly iridescent piece is made of a yellowish, clear glass, the decoration around the rim is blue. The bowl’s imaginative decoration includes several birds which appear as if drinking out of the basin of the bolw. A small vase teeters on the bowl’s edge.
