Stylistically, it looks a great deal like birds made by the Wards at Titan Studios in the USA.  Usually signed, although others have copied their design and not signed them.  I have not seen a swallow by them.

stemidd, it is by V. Nason of Murano. It looks like a cross between a pigeon and swallow -- artistic license. I have a picture of one with a label that I "borrowed" from eBay. Definite ID. I would love to include it in the Murano Zoo. If you want to include it, just email me your full name and I'll give you credit for the photo.
