Colorful Glass Duck - Murano? Or Something Else?

Hi. Does anyone recognize the maker of this glass duck? It measures 6.5" long x 5" tall. Flat, polished base. Thanks!

Hi,  I wonder if this is one of the Tour d'Argent ducks mentioned here in an earlier thread?

As it is not signed as such on the base, I would say this one was not sold at the restaurant. But they are all by the same artist, if I understand correctly.

There is a bit about the Tour d'Argent birds here. Leslie Pina shows some in her book on Archimede Seguso, but I think it's an error. Galliano Ferro and Pitau did many. There were other companies, too. ICET of Venezuela also has their copied version that is not as nice as the Murano pieces. https://sites.google.com/site/muranozoo/birds-8
