Cat Decanter... Italian?

it's a standard bottle stopper in Scandinavia - Holmegaard used it a lot, so did Gullaskruf and a few others because it is simple and practical. Take a 5 Ore piece, they're nice and large and cheap and dated, drill a hole in the middle and fix it to the top of the cork with a split pin.

The Blenko company also did figural decanters like this one.
Worth a look at that.

Yes, Blenko did make a cat decanter but this is not a Blenko piece. I too thought they were Italain.

Balboa was an importer of Murano glass in the 50's and 60's.

That would explain why they're not in the official manufacturers listings. Where were they located? Anyone have a picture of a label?
