This is driving me to despair  ::) ??? Every time I take it off the shelf to wash it, I look around the net for something similar. You've guessed it, today is bath day for him.
The tree is hollow and possibly for a candle?
The bird's eyes are inside the head, not applied
The base is reminiscent of the back of a knot sculpture
110mm high
105mm wide
70mm (max) wide
495g

All suggestions gratefully received.
TIA
If I know, I'll comment. If I think I know, I'll have a go. If I have no idea, I'll just keep quiet and learn from others, so the next time I'll know.

It sort of reminds me of LiuliGongfang glass.... or similar. :)

I know what you mean, Rosie, it does me too. I have tried searching for look-a-likes etc.  :-\

I would suggest trying a search on
"ZBS Zelezny Brod Jaroslav Brychta".  :)

Here is the catalogue for the ZBS pieces,  but I can't see anything resembling your piece Della.
 I'll keep looking though,  I think it is charming.

It was knowing there were some of these in Aniks' shop that educated me about these lovely cheerful sculptures in the first place, so I knew I'd find one there.  :)

I'm no good at navigating those catalogues, I couldn't find anything that looked right there.

Thank you, ladies.  ;D :-*
I will look through the catalogues this evening.
I have a Tittot piece, Rosie and the finish is much better.
