Corroso Glass Dog Signed Fero (?) Is it a Flavio Poli for Seguso?
I'm new here. I loaded some pictures to your GlassGallery site.

This dog figure measures approx. 7-8 long and weighs approx. 3-4 lbs.
I did post this on the eBay Pottery, Glass & Porcelain discussion board a few
week ago. Here is the link. The pictures are better in that thread, if you care to

I did find out that the surface treatment is called corroso, which was very helpful
and searching with that key word led me to an auction of a very similar glass
animal that was also signed Fero on the bottom, but signature was not pictured.
The seller seems very knowledgeable. Is the attribution correct?

Does anyone know who or what FERO means? All I can find is that it means 'iron'
in Italian, or is part of a gondola boat, or street names in Venice.
