This dark green glass vessel is shaped like a bird. It measures 4.5 inches long. It’s about 3.5 inches tall and about 2.5 inches wide. There is some slight iridescence to the glass and a white patina on the surface that does flake off sometimes. Purchased online from a lady who said it was in a box of glass that said “Israel 1956”
This item allegedly came from an estate sale from a box that had “Israel 1956” written on it.
