Sorry. They are lampwork tigers that could have been made anywhere. They are probably small, right? The tigers made by the different Murano companies in the old days were big and well detailed.

I know it is a disappointment. They are cute and enjoyable. A lot of work went into their detailing and they have feet that were made to last. Not Barovier, Poli, Barbini, Colleoni, etc., but nice lampwork.

I would think Chinese, due to the incredible amount of detail and the multitude of colours that went into the production.

Hi aze,
if you look at your 3rd pic, the pattern on the back stops dead at the leg,
I have 60 ish lampwork minitures, only on a couple does the pattern run to the limbs.
I maybe talkin rubbish but the quality of those outshines the others ( cept the perelli's cause i love those).

However, Anita's comments pretty much sums them up, its impossible to attribute most of them.
I can remember in Southend as a kid watching a bloke by the pier making them.
