Apologies if this has been asked too many times. Tiny glass rooster with canes in body. Is this Murano, Caithness or other maker?

I agree with the Chinese view. From what I can see of the canes, they are typical of the basic output in recent years.

But it could be possible that birds like these are found with a Murano sticker, as some Murano outlets do sell (in amongst their own products) basic gift weights supplied from China, and I see no reason why they wouldn't include this sort of bird item.
