Murano? roadrunner swan
« on: February 01, 2010, 07:41:47 PM »
Hello
I have this pretty item which I call roadrunner, quite delicate with what I call a walnut looking base.  Am I right in thinking Murano, or other?
Many thanks as always
Margi

You have a swan. Roadrunners have fairly short necks and long tails... and good legs for zipping along the ground. I don't know who made your swan. The eyes look like the type of glass that is often sold on eBay as Murano, but I haven't been able to figure where all of the pieces come from. Some are from Germany. Others, I don't know.
