I agree this could never be Sabino, just saying that it reminded me of some bits I have, but it's colouring is all wrong as I mentioned.
The base does look wrong, though I am sure it was always meant for this piece - it is the type of Murano base for the cruder type cockerels and the like - the opalescent /milk glass bird with the pink tinting seems far to sophisticated.
Chuggy seems right - I too would go for Seguso if it were not for the base - and you are right as well Tiger, it is not glued on, if it is a 'cut and shut' then it's been at a glassblowers and that seems unlikely
Still watching out for a similar peice
