    The research I have undertaken leads me to believe this is a Murano. I saw a very similar bird on Bing Images, but it was obviously a smaller and different species of bird, but definitely of the same line. It measures: 10" BEAK TO TAIL - 6" TALL - 2.5" WIDE. This bird is stunning in it's simple beauty, with Brown lines on top and White lines on the bottom. A true work of art. Any help on identification would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Confirmed - Dino Martens
    Filligrana Bianca Nera

      These were marketed by Crystal Clear Collectibles and the pieces were made in China.... there are penguins, swans dogs, cats and birds in the series.
