I picked up one of those yesterday, the bottom of his feet weren't shiny, my thought was perhaps Chinese - just didn't seem quite right for Italian, but I could be wrong. The body also seemed quite sophisticated but the beak and feet rather crude

I've got 1 of these in a model of a penguin, not Chinese. I'm a clot as I found the maker and can't for the life of me remember where I wrote it.
I tend to write things down on bits of paper, not good I know.
I'll have a good hunt.

Hi there Martin
thank you for your reply, hope you find the bit of paper soon. I am the same, bits of paper everywhere.

Just to throw it into the mix, there are Charity shops round my way selling new pieces with the same look/technique...

I cant remeber if this bird is part of thier range or not? or where they're getting them from...

I do think this a a new piece, such as one would find in a discount store (Ross or TJ Maxx around here). Some of them have Murano stickers, but some are Chinese (and sometimes I think the ones with Murano stickers might also be Chinese...)
