Is this Murano glass?
« on: July 16, 2006, 01:23:39 AM »
I had posted this a while back on the main board but believe I would be more likely to get a response here.  The animal is 8 1/2" tip to tip.  The glass is unmarked.  Any information as to origin and age will be greatly appreciated.

Almost certainly a generic Murano piece made for the tourist trade.

Thanks Chuggy!  Can anyone give me a rough time frame for this piece?
