This is a beautiful stylized glass sculpture of a horse, however I'm not certain of the maker. I want to say it's Murano. Can anyone help?

    I agree with GSO. Have you found the zoo?
  3. vetraio50 vetraio50, 2 years ago
    Mario Gambaro, Seguso? Formia?
    The mane looks more like Cenedese in the 'horse' section.
    The use of labels!
    Lots bought in Italy by tourists too!

    I have found the zoo vetraio50 Thank You so much. There seems to be an impressed mark in the tail. Have you all ever heard of such a thing? It' nearly impossible to make out though.

    Impressed marks are used. Liskeard in England and a mate here Brian Hirst has an impressed mark too. I've not heard of a Murano usage but I'm no real expert maybe some of the others will know.

    This actually looks like a Alfredo Barbini piece. He did a collection of horses Tigers ,using that layered effect in the manes and hair,and he did a lot of them in silver and gold. The on thing that really makes me think it is his work is the mouth of the horse.
    Here is a link of one
