Kingfisher/Houston Limited Edition of 50

Introduced in 1982 and designed by the legendary James Houston, the #0328 Kingfisher is a solid crystal form engraved by copper wheel on the back with the artist's interpretation of a young, female Belted Kingfisher perched on a bare branch over a stream, its eye trained on two small fish swimming below. The watchful bird is poised to make its characteristic headlong dive into the water in pursuit of a meal. With its tufted crown, sharp beak and feathered markings, this eager and persistent fisherman is portrayed to display the engraver's skill. A shallow, cut depression on the front of the crystal form provides an illusion of the surface of the stream. Three concave cuts on the underside give the appearance of stones on the streambed. Limited to an edition of 50. Properly signed and in excellent condition.
