Finding a Crow On A Teacup
December 13, 2005 8:15 PM   Subscribe

Back in the early 90's, I saw a color magazine ad for a piece of art I've been unable to locate since. It was a crow poised on the edge of a teacup.

Teacup and crow were beautifully lifelike. I think I remember that it was Victoria Magazine. I've purchased old issues of this now out-of print magazine in an effort to find the crow again. I think the price was 200.00. I cannot remember if the piece was porcelain - could have been carved, but I really think porcelain. I'd love to find him. At the time I saw the ad, I suggested it to my husband as a Christmas gift but he was sure I didn't really want it. All these years later, I still do!

It's bronze, but could it be this?

If that is the one you're looking for, it looks like it can be ordered, possibly from a bunch of different places. Googling the artist's name brings up a lot of sites. Here's one gallery that mentions the piece being available.
