Hi there

The figurine below is what they term a Bicolour Amoranti or "KISSING LOVERS" figurine.  Some prominent makers are Afro Celotto, Formia Murano and others. they are truly exquisite sensual items

Formia was a huge maker of the lovers. They made them on cylinder bases and on ball-like bases. I don't recall any bubbles in the bases, but the arms remind me of the Formia sculptures. So maybe Formia for Helen's sculpture? Just a guess.

Hi, Mario Gambaro also made piece similar to this.  They are a piece that has been made by quite a few older and more modern Masters and Formia certainly is one of the best.   Here is a modern abstract version of the same subject
