I'm having trouble identifying this dove and would appreciate some help.....
It's 16cm (6in) high, 21cm (8 1/4in) long, gold flecked inside with murrhines, jade green eyes and clear base.
It's obviously at least based on Guilio Radi's AVEM dove, but has a signature on the base. For a change the signature is reasonably clear but I still cant work it out.
The initials are M A and the last word in parenthesis looks something like 'guernica'... maybe 'guilio'?
My best guess at the name is something like ..Mathelle Allento... but I know that's wrong, despite trying dozens of variations I'm getting nowhere...HELP please...
