Guinea-fowl figurine in black glass with application of lattimo glass threads in fenicio motif on circular foot
The inexhaustible creativity of Fulvio Bianconi also produced a series of animal figurines with a healthy dose of caricature. One such series featuring barnyard animals included the figure of a guinea-fowl.. The bird’s body is decorated with a fenicio motif in lattimo glass with stylized plumage that stands out clearly against its black background.
