Pirelli, Murano or what?
« on: February 26, 2006, 11:53:47 AM »
I was given this piece recently and know nothing about glass animals apart from some of the articles on the Message Board and Frank's wonderful site. However, I haven't found a bird like this to compare mine with - it looks to be more substantial than the Murano pieces and shares some of the characteristics of the Pirelli models. Can anyone help with the identification.

No idea but I doubt Pirelli.
