Hi All..again,

This lovely maroon bird was one of the first pieces of glass I bought. I only recently discovered it was signed on the inside. See pic...it looks like a B in a script type. Hopefully someone will recognise either the bird style or the signature. Appreciate all info. Even if it turns out to not be Murano.

If it helps the bird is full of tiny bubbles and the tail has a splash of colour through it.

I'm wondering if it isn't Chalet glass from Canada. You might want to check here: http://www.mblaisgallery.com/dynamic/artists/Chalet_Art_Glass.asp

Thanks Laura, What a great site !

It does look very similar to the one I have. I found a couple of other things that I own, are the same as those,  so I now know that I have Chalet Glass in my collection as well. Coming to this site has already helped me a great deal.

Wondering now if they listed or kept track of their artists like with the Murano.
