Most glass animals are probably not Murano; lampwork animals have been made worldwide for many years. It only requires a blow torch and glass rods. However here is some help with the Pirelli ones http://www.ysartglass.com/Indexcat04.htm

Aw shucks - such a disappointment that no-one suggested you need to buy my book on Pirelli Glass - if it isn't in the Pirelli Glass book then it isn't Pirelli. Easy.

We need a book on all the non-Pirelli animals now too. :)
