Hi all again,
Ive put this in the queries here even though I suspect that this is a Murano duck. My dilemma is....http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-7456http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-7455
The tail is snapped off at the end...and a chip off the back of his foot underneath..This lovely duck measures 34.5cm high (13.5") and weighs a smidgen under 6 kilos. Ive had him for almost 10 years, bought from a nursing home clearout. He's been in the back of the cabinet and now Im sorting my glass out, I come to my problem..
Is he now valueless because of the damage?
Can he ever be repaired?
Should I bother even finding out the maker? (after being on this board a while now, I realise the scratches on the side could be a Murano signature
And if I research the maker and it turns out to be a desirable one..again...does he have ANY value?
I still think he's gorgeous of course, and I havent seen one that big here before. So I guess Im wondering what everyone does with their damaged glass? I could cull a few things from my collection going by small chips and sundries.
