I'm getting really worried about my memory......my original post was only two months ago and was after I had been to the murano zoo site.  Looking at it again, I remember now it was those birds that made me think Seguso was the most likely answer. This is sooooo embarrassing 😳

Thank you again John, really appreciate your help.

If only the process of attribution was linear and straightforward, how simple it would be...  :D

The variety of Seguso's birds is itself impressive, those black and gold gulls on the last page are stunning just on their own.

I have updated the title with a confirmed ID to "AS".

For folk newly browsing, please see the "muranozoo" pages for Seguso Birds (linked to by glassobsessed in Reply 9) which show how various features have been used for parts of a whole range of "fantasy birds".

Thanks Kev.  Is Anita a board member?  I wondered if she would like to include this one on the site.  Happy to provide other pictures if the ones here aren't adequate.  It would be nice to be able to contribute to the work she has done.
