In 1997 toward the end of his design career with Steuben Glass, James Houston created the extraordinary #0520 Green Heron: Nature's Fly-Fisher. This 8 1/4" wide masterwork was limited to an edition of 50 and quickly sold out. In a fascinating parallel to the art of fly fishing, the Green Heron will pluck a small feather from its breast and cast it on the water in front of itself--using the feather as a lure. Note the feather is 18K gold. Properly signed, numbered and in excellent condition with original red leather case.
