I saw a new one of these along with a penguin and a dog the other day and would say they were most probably Chinese: matt bottoms, spurious air bubbles, generally not very good quality

I saw a bird very similar to this today in the British Heart Foundation shop, but i could be very off the mark
http://britishheartfoundation.sandbag.uk.com/Store/DII-366-1-large+glass+penguin+ornament+.html    Scroll down.

Not exactky the same as the one i saw but will give you an idea, also lots of bubble paperweights and some that looked remarkably like Adam Jablonsk !!

That's the ones I was refering to above...they had a whole range of these in the London area shops 6 months back, but now just have the Adam Jablonski lookalikes, bubble pw's and some clunky solid animals. Every BHF shop has them by the ton and very cheap so I'd expect to see them for many years to come.

I have been thinking about this thread for days because I knew I had seen these somewhere :huh:.....I think they are Crystal Clear Collectables....... might be imported by Lesser & Pavey Ltd, ( of Leonardo Giftware fame)but not 100% certain.  There are a few on eBay at the moment, might be worth you looking to see if this is what you have.

If they are, then China is the right answer

Sorry, I can't see how anybody could possibly think these were made by Mike Hunter (Twists Glass) - Mike is an absolutely top class masterglassmaker, there is simply no comparison of quality between these things and Mike's work. Honest!

I have seen these on Ebay being sold as Dino Martens' design.  Dino had nothing to do with this design but I believe the Chinese did.
