My latest purchase turned up today and I thought it would be an interesting piece to see if anyone can ID. It is fully signed and nearly 50 years old stands 2.5" high and 9" across, so who can guess it correctly?

hmmmmmmm must be Murano, as it is obviously a piece of spaghetti and a blob of tomato sauce left over from your lunch out there.

Seriously, though, no idea, but I reckon that little thingy on the left hand side must be a give away to those in the know about these things.
Thank you very much!

The label on the left would point to Nationality, but a red herring for the company concerned.
