Australian Emu, Crown Crystal

The Emu is a flightless, ostrich-like bird. Carnival glass pieces are found in 5-inch and 9 to 10-inch bowls and a compote. The design shows the bird within a floral wreath or band on bowls and with trees on the compote. The ruffled bowl is aqua, a very rare color for australian pieces. It sold for $900 in 2002.
