This is an adorable and unique Murano Venetian blown art glass figurine set of crocodiles. Crocodiles have a narrow mouth and is not oval shaped like an alligator. I really don't know the history or age, but in this case my finding was based on what I like.
Both figurines have hollow bodies with open mouths and applied glass beads for eyes. Each has applied an ribbon of crystal clear glass of textured ripples on the top side of the body and on each crocodile, the applied feet attached to the body are also crystal clear. The head on each crocodile has gold flecks in the crystal clear glass and the crystal feet also have gold flecks as well. Crocodile bodies have ribbon colours of blue and a light amethyst purple glass. Sections of the crystal glass on each croc did react in very pale light green hues under a black light.
Both measure 5" long and 2-5/8" tall.
