Resting horse with Murano foil sticker
« on: February 23, 2010, 03:16:34 PM »
Any ideas who might have made this rather nice resting horse please?  It has a gold and red foil Murano label.
Perhaps the label could be added to the appropriate section?
TIA ;)

The resting horses are terrible to try to figure out. I've had a large gold one for a couple of years that I've not been able to positively attribute. There is one thing that I've noticed about them. If they have individually formed legs with hooves, they are good horses. If there legs are pulled out in front and not formed underneath, they were rapidly made. I posted the bottom of a good horse below. I think that several companies made reclining horses and that they are all very similar. I have not been able to find any (other than the Lavorazione Arte Murano bad horses) that have company labels.  >:(

Thank you Anita :)  I will take a picture of the underside tomorrow.
Thought people might be interested in seeing a Murano horse (and a cat) being made  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KlTYgdc2OiY  :o :hiclp:  :hiclp:
