Soffieria De Carlini Ornament, Glittered Sea Turtle
The De Carlini Workshop reimagines the endangered sea turtle. Sea turtles have existed since the time of the dinosaurs. This Italian glass version envisions a gold glitter carapace with green design creating the characteristic tortoise shell motif. Its four flippers are outstretched in swimming motion. The quizzical expression is certain to delight “children” of all ages.
