RARE Gabriella Binazzi Firenze Foresto Made in Italy Giant Clam Shell Silver Plated Duck Sculpture. Gabriella Binazzi well known for sculptures. Shells and ostrich eggs with metals.
Made in Italy in the 70's and 80's. Not much is known about this person or company but all works I've seen is of quality craftsmanship.This is a duck sculpture with silver plate webbed feet, wingspan across the top of the shell, and head; with a real clam shell as the body. The eyes are round black colored cabochons and the beak has a gold wash on it. In good pre-owned vintage condition for its age. Some wear on the silver plate and on the gold wash beak. The neck wiggles against the body of the shell and the feet are bent upward. It looks like it was made this way. A note on my photos. These were taken in daylight and casts a yellowish tinge that I've tried to adjust out.
Measures 15" x 12" x 10. Hallmarked at the the bottom feet, "Binazzi Firenze", with a sticker, "Binazzi Foresto Made in Italy". A few guidelines when considering this item. I pack each item carefully and take special care with breakables.
