1940s Paden City Pouter Pigeon Glass Bird Figurine w/ Fan Tail, Vintage Crystal Figure of Bird, Mid Century Glass Animal Bookend, Home Decor

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


This very collectible Paden City Pouter Pigeon glass bird figurine with fan tail was produced in the 1940s. This vintage crystal figure of a bird is like looking at a large piece of ice and is simply gorgeous. Many times these mid century glass animals were used as bookends, as they are so heavy.

This wonderful piece of old glassware is 5 5/8" tall and in great vintage condition, with no chips, cracks or scratches, looking just like it did when it came off the showroom floor over 70 years ago. There are some small bubbles deep inside the glass. Would make a wonderful gift for that special someone, including yourself.

This beauty weighs about 2 3/4 pounds before wrapping, so please contact me with your zip code for a more exact shipping cost, as the amount varies considerably at this weight. It's an 8.50 to 13.60 range, depending on if you live on the East Coast, or near me.

I collect this pattern, but had never seen this pattern, so I am thrilled to add another dimension to my collection. Perfect condition. Not a bump, scratch, or blemish.
