I can't make out too much detail from the pics, Gary, but there seems to be a pheasant-y sort of bird there?
It has a few features that make it look as if it belongs with my Pirelli Peacock...
Have you tried turning a UV torch on any of them yet?
My peacock has uranium-glass in it, and cadmium yellow, although I've seen another with just Cadmium yellow and no U.

I was of the opinion that most Pirelli beasties had both whites and pupils in the eyes, (your DD doesn't). That is a feature I do tend to look for.
Cheers, Sue (M)

 ;D

Gary, I was not "Doubting your Donald" in the slightest, it has been properly identified, by a trusted source. 8)

Perhaps I didn't make that clear, sorry. :-[

(I said most have them, then put your DD in brackets, as being one that doesn't)

I was only trying to add a bit of info, to assist with some of the others, in case you hadn't known about that.

It's not clear cut that if a glass beastie has both whites and pupils that it is Pirelli either, others did it too.
It's just something to be aware of.

I have a (very odd) Pirelli fish, that has some whale in its ancestry, it has orage eyes with black pupils, and some other fish with whites and pupils that I do not think have anything to do with Pirelli.
Cheers, Sue (M)

This baby pink elephant is the only lampwork animal I have with a label . It's probably of no help , but at least it has a label which is 8mm in diameter, green and says T.I FOREIGN . I haven't managed to find out anything at all about the label, importers label perhaps ?   :(

Sorry it took me so long to get to your post. There are several Pirelli's in your picture, namely:

Donald Duck, Brer Rabbit, Walking Rabbit with cane, Pheasant, Snake charmer, the tree with orange leaves and a bird, and possibly the amber coloured dog (I can't see him very well).

The Loch Ness Monster isn't Pirelli though.

This post and most of the replies were posted before my book on Pirelli Glass was published earlier this year (2016). You will find all of these items are pictured in that book. I hope this is helpful.
