Millefiori Pig
« on: June 16, 2007, 06:10:05 PM »
Found this sweet little pig this weekend.  There is one of these on eBay that says Paolo Venini is the maker.  Any help on confirming this would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
Nancy

No way on earth that this is by Paolo Venini I'm afraid. Could be Fratelli Toso, but could equally be modern generic Murano.
