Good Morning all,
I recently received these 2 glass, duck figurine banks.  I was hoping to acquire information about them such as who is the artist (creator), where they were created, and if possible an approximent value.  If you are unable to give a value over this blog then a resource I can contact to give me more information.  They weigh 2-4lbs, they are 12-13" in height and 5-6" in width.  Any information would be wonderful.
Thank you, Cindy

Welcome to the forum.

The label is from Fratelli Toso, so Murano, Italy, probably 1950s or 60s. Value is always subjective, for a range look for the same or similar that have sold, pay little attention to prices asked (many are absurd) only those items that have been sold are any use.
