Grande Pappagallo Bianco

Today we bring you one of the rarest birds in the world, the Great White Parrot. Only found in Italy and believed to be extinct since the early 1970s when the invasion of lesser Asian parrots flooded the western world.
 What we have here is a wonderful example of Italian skill in ceramic modeling. This giant example is 30 inches tall, which makes it one of the largest pieces of ceramic art we've ever had.
 Signed F. Nucci circa 1960.
