In looking back at the additional photos, I think the other people posting are right.  'no trousers'.  Just someone taking the idea and modifying it.  It seems that most of the original Vistosi pieces were blown.  I did not dig deep enough to see if any are solid glass pieces.

Thanks

I do not think this is Vistosi, someone paid a lot on eBay under that impression, although I see the bid started at 99p and rose to the high amount over time. This is far cruder than Vistosi, but still effective and I think perhaps 70s in date. I think maybe Scandinavian or German as I said before.

What a cute bird, but as everyone said, it is all wrong for Pianon. Still cute. But not $900 worth of cute.  :o

What the last one like this sold for before the auction ended.  :-X

I don't know what you don't, either.

Well if they know it's not Vistosi (maybe they don't - but the seller doesn't claim it is 100%) what do they think it is?

Well we know they will be very unhappy chappies or chappettes once they find out!
