The colours, the base, and the style all seem newish to me, the last ten or fifteen years. I haven't a clue about a maker.

????

Could it possibly be ???? FM Konstglas/Ronneby/Marcolin  :huh: :huh: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,18410.0.html  as the head kinda reminds me of this one I have...but that is a ?? on yours

The colours, the base, and the style all seem newish to me, the last ten or fifteen years. I haven't a clue about a maker.

....but then I think I have seen something like that as a Newer Murano like David said.  I think my brain is over-loaded right now  :ho:

Thanks SO much David & Rose,

I think the bird might well be FM !...very similar indeed to Ingela's bird. The conical base is almost identical . The person who sold it to me seemed to think it dated from the 1970's . There is some wear to the base which would suggest some sort of age.

The green colour goes very clear and faint under artificial lighting if this might be a clue.  I think I might have posted this in the wrong section !!  :fwr:
