006.  Art glass bird

This art glass bird was a birthday gift when I was 8 or 9, I believe. At some point, quite soon after the giving, it was dropped and the tail broke off. On the way home from picking it up after having the tail ground down to a smooth stub, while being passed around the back of the station wagon (at a time when no one took a seat belt seriously) and undergoing a thorough examination by all, whether they were directly or indirectly involved, the bird was dropped and the beak was chipped.
