« on: March 19, 2008, 07:25:17 PM »
Hello pet lovers
                     could you please tell me if this is a Swan or a Duck? this little chap has a clear beak and a clear chest even though when you look at it, it's seems red, from the front view but from the side you can see it is clear, he or she is 51/4ins high to top f the head, to the beak 3.3/4ins the base is polished, one for the Zoo, is it first bird i have ever bought.

I usually manage to pull with out spending well on first date anyway  ;D am an  :angel: realy, hope some one as an idea on this graceful bird of mine,thanks

Have been informed this may be Murano Swan could any one ok this please, or move to that section and let the experts decide,

I am thinking if this should be moved to the paperweight section, after looking on ebay i saw one that was a bit like this, but it was clased as a paperweight, saying Murano /whitefriar's swan, but what glass is not classed as that now.

Im new to this game so you can understand how confusing this is getting, how come they are allowed to advertise god's that are not what they say they are? that is why at the moment i am not buying from ebay untill i am sure what is what, just imagine how many sales the genuine Glass traders are losing because of this.

That is why i think this site is so good very informative for the beginner, and the people are  genuine,
