    This reminds me of balloon animals. I've never, ever seen a glass horse like this one. I wonder if it's from the 1950s or 1960s. I did wash it but it could stand a bit more cleaning. There is a small vent hole in the tail.

    If anyone has an inkling about this horse, please comment.

    :-))

      Looks like a piece of very light and airy glass they call "lampwork". The use a small burner to shape and create it much like a balloon animal. I have a rooster. Could be the same maker, but I get an Italian vibe.

      Thanks, Sean!

      Thanks for the link, Mike. I took a look. I also think my horse is Italian. I would like to find another for comparison. How old do you think this one might be?

      Not sure Bonnie but I wouldn't be surprised if it was the 60's-70's :)
