This smooth design comes in different colors, with slight differences in the shape of bill and tail. The birds on the top row have a Salviati label on bottom of the type used in the 1950s. The birds are about 4" long. Photo of the bird on bottom is courtesy of Horst Weigele of Fossilfly's Murano Glass Board.
This pheasant is 17" long. Attribution is taken from birds of this design that had a label. The Salviati pheasants are very similar to ones made by Seguso, but the Salviati birds have a ridged crest with a pronounced curl at the end. There is a carefully made, circular recessed pontil. They come in various colors and sizes.
Salviati Swan Salts
These are19th Century swan salts, not marked, but of the form made by Salviati Dott. These swans are notable because often they have sloppy glass work. The bowls could be swirled, diamond quilt, ribbed, or bubbled. Most, but not all, had gold. There were many different colors. Old Salviati swans often had twisted bills and sharp points in the glass. They were not carefully made. The applied wings were separate from the tail. They were different sizes. I've seen them from 3-6 inches.
This transparent peach duck is 6" long and has a Salviati label on bottom.
These birds are cased in clear glass. They are 5.25" long from tail to bill. The two white birds have Salviati labels from the 1970s on bottom. Photo of the birds on top are courtesy of Dan Farrell of Fossilfly's Murano Glass Board.
These sassy fellows were made by Salviati. The design has three tail feathers and a base with a crease in front. It is very similar to some Archimede Seguso designs except for the tail feathers. The pink bird has a Salviati label on bottom. It is 4.9" tall (12.5 cm). The blue bird is a little small at 4" (10.2 cm) tall.
