Need help identifying one of my favorite Murano Ducks
« on: August 20, 2022, 05:27:15 PM »
Good Morning Everyone,
I'd love to get some feedback on one of my favorite Murano pieces. I've probably had him at least 10 years. I have many Murano pieces that I'll be selling, but I'm keeping this handsome fellow.

He looks old to me and I've always wondered who made him. Can anyone help to identify the maker and possibly a range of years that he was made? He's 8" high with a wingspan of 6" and weighs 2 lbs 14 ozs

Thank you,
Dan

Hi Maybe itís a goose? The worn label on the bottom looks like itís Ferro Lazzarini, like the complete label shown here:

The label looks like itís original to the duck so hopefully there are no issues of wandering labels but I know next to nothing about Murano glass :)

Great detective work!
I'll look up Ferro Lazzarini made glass to see if I can locate a similar duck or goose. 

I really appreciate your help!
Dan
