Peter MacDougall?
He does/did complex birdies. :)

eta. I've just been looking for some of his birds, but can't find any. He did make complex and accurate birds, inbetween working at Strathearn before it closed, and before he set up making weights at Perthshire.
I met him, selling lampwork birds on agate slices, during this time. I had quite a long chat with him, I was very impressed with his birds. (But I'm not fond of agate slices, and especially not when dyed glow-in-the-dark unnatural colours, so I, reluctantly, did not buy any.)
Cheers, Sue (M)

Whoever made the weight in question seems to have used the Caithness Glass "Robin" weight of 1981 as a model. See here for an enlargeable example (without having to go into Pinterest !)

Or could it have been a prototype for the Caithness one?

Note that the canes, although different in colour, are of the same basic design.

Agreed Gary, the Robin in the 1983 Robin & Kettle example is very close to the mystery one. And it does not have the finer detail in the beak and feet as the earlier one.
