I think the bird may be a stork--or a heron. I'm not really sure, but I looked at it several times and just loved the graceful lines and the soft coloring. A bargain for $2. It's actually a vase!
When I got it home and was looking more closely, I found the mark that it was made in Czechoslovakia. It is so pretty.
You just never know what you'll find--part of the thrill, I think. It's great to have lots of stuff in one location, because, truth be told, I am not a big fan of stopping, getting out, looking, getting back in the car and then driving and repeating the process untold times. I think that's why I prefer auctions!
Hugs to all,
