Lovely grouping of Murano stylized ducks. I like Murano glass birds either in groups or by themself . . . and I like ducks in particular. I believe this group was made by Oball. There is no sticker but the design of the clear base is typical of their work. The eyes, edges of the wings and beaks are guilded. I also like the subtle pink tones - I think there is a word for how this colour is manipulated, but I've forgotten what that term is. Beaks, tail and wings are clear. Base is not ground flat but has a reticulated raised pattern - somewhat like a net and this feature might assist in confirming the item's identity. Made within the last 40 years? Just under 14 cms tall and 20 cms wide. Very heavy. The ducks rest on a low table where I sit to watch TV. They are a constant source of pleasure. Purchased on-line from England. Hope you like them as much as I do.
