I am having a hard time committing to a definite answer for this one. The length of the tail, the colors, and the head make me think Archimede Seguso. So many companies did ducks/geese in this pose, though, it is hard to say for sure. I hope someone else can confirm (or deny).

After writing the first message, I looked at a few Barbini ducks. None of them had their head bent, but they were so similar to yours in the tail and feet. Sorry to confuse, but there is an equally good chance your goose is Barbini. (I better not look at any more birds tonight, or I'll probably be mentioning all the Murano companies. Maybe we'll run into your exact bird.)

Hi Anita
 I looked around the internet and thought Barbini, but as am not an expert and do not have Murano books, thought I had better get a better opinion. It was the tails and mainly the feet that made me think Barbini. Thank you for looking for me.
