Glass Animals, who made them please? Murano, Pirelli
« on: November 26, 2005, 06:11:47 PM »
Hi All,

I have to sell some of my glass animals  :cry:    as I want to put the money towards some 1960's glass for my living room.  :wink: and I need the room :oops:

I don't want to mis- represent who made them, as none have any labels, so could someone please cast an eye over them and tell me who might have made them

I think most of these are from Lauscha.

Hi Ivo,

where is Lauscha? Is it in Germany or Czech?

Max, the rabbits legs are amazing, thin pains of glass with little yellow feet.

Hi Frank,

I thought the rabbit might be Pirelli,as it is like "Rabbit 2" in the Wild Animal selection of Pirelli glass on the Ysart Site, I know its only an advert and black and white, but it does look very similar, it does, honest :wink:

These were obviouslya  popular motif I have come across several different ones but none that really matches the one on my site and there are not any Pirelli features in yours, at some stage I will be adding pages with 'other' animals to try and ID them.

Hi

This is my Rabbit bought in Scotland

http://publish.hometown.aol.co.uk/blackcatgla/images/rabbitcopy.jpg

I thought he might be Pirelli, but on close inspection of the fuzzy b&w advert (an excellent article however) on http://www.glassencyclopedia.com/pirelliglass.html it is really difficult to make an attribution - for me just not enough detail, I agree with Frank that until we get a label on one of these rabbits, a Pirelli attribution cannot be made even if they do look very like the advert

David is my Father's name, 555 is the number of man ('The Pixies'), but please call me ADAM P.
