It's a larger figure - about 7" long and maybe 4.5" tall
Clear glass
I've tried all sorts of variations on what I think are the letters but haven't found the name
Please help!  thanks!

I confirm this sculpture belongs to Licio Zanetti (founder of the furnace) and the father of the current masterglass Oscar Zanetti.
