Thanks, Anita! :kissy:  I didn't mean to put you on the spot; you just have an eye and feel for little glass critters.

Here are 3 examples from a quick eBay search under "Murano Glass Dogs".  (Of course, just cause they are there doesn't mean they are Murano).  I just thought for comparison purposes, they might be useful.

No problem at all, Lily. I don't mind being on the spot, even though I usually don't know who made most animals. So many companies made animals that look alike.

The dog in your first link looks to be Murano. The second link I have no idea -- maybe Murano glass. The third dog needs to be carefully wrapped and put in the circular file. What a dreadful little fellow! Sometimes I see animals like this and figure it doesn't matter who made them because they are so awful. But I guess if we see it as a stray mutt that struggled in out of the freezing rain, it makes it lovable. It had to be tough to survive.

ICET Arte Murano is glass that is made in Venezuela in the style of Murano glass. The chemistry of the glass is much the same, though the sand probably is different. ICET models many of its pieces on ones that were made in Murano. They make dogs that look like this. The most popular ones are the dogs with a collar that has one extension going down toward the right leg. I'll try to find a listing for this one. They are often listed as murano. I haven't seen an ICET dog like yours. The glass on the legs just reminded me of their work.
