La Murrina appear to be a marketting organisation for multiple glassmakers:

At least that is what it appears to be now, it is also franchising its name, designs.

But no trace of such critters  :(

5 years later....   ::)

I think it was made by Livio Campanella, here are the canes (Murr18)... http://liviocampanella.com/content/view/13/33/

And here's the owl in a different colour.... http://liviocampanella.com

Good one, Tigerchips.

And the liviocampanella pages help out with some "uncertain maker" small vases & jugs that have been queried in Glass / Murano. I'll add a comment when I can find the relevant thread(s)

I think that what we now have is confirmation of various items and shapes made by Livio Campanello but using canes made by Moretti/Effetre.
