gold inclusion animals g giacobbe
« on: March 31, 2011, 06:31:27 PM »
I saw this on ebay. It's a clear glass duck with gold foil inclusions. It is labelled G Giacobbe Murano, not a name I've heard of before.Could it be a relative of any of the pieces currently on the message board?

I've wondered about Giacobbe myself. It could be a store label, but I'm not sure.

I have a seemingly similar style quite ugly pelican, I seem to go in for ugly birds! See my Seguso parrot in an earlier post in murano or the afformentioned pelican on the glass board. It has a Pauly & C. label
