Squirrel and a bull
« on: February 23, 2010, 03:10:09 PM »
Any thoughts on these two critters would be welcome please.  The bull looks IMHO Italian, but the squirrel, which is quite large and heavy, I'm not too sure.  Thought I'd try here first.
TIA  :D

Both look Murano to me. These animal forms were used by several companies. I couldn't locate any exact matches in the pictures I have. If you check Murano bulls on eBay and the stores, you may be able to find an exact match. Much luck!

Many thanks folks.  These two came with the resting horse which fortunately had its Murano label on (posted on the Murano section).
Will delve a little more ;)

Definitely a classic Murano-shaped bull, but there have been copies. I'll move this thread to Murano for greater exposure (although Anita probably has the definitive answer).
