Have a look at "Murano" glass items on google, Bob or ebay. Very popular items. Perhaps you can

google the name on the item if it has one.

It is stunning! The Beak insists it is his cousin from Italy (or somewhere equally special!)

Seems like fine craftsmanship indeed, what is shown of it. Does your camera only do head shots?

there should be 3 other photos on the listing , designed to make you lie on the floor or turn your monitor .

Ooops, forgot to turn the picture thingie on. And foiled your design, only needed to tilt the head slightly.

 

But hey, also get to repeat myself now... fine craftsmanship! Is it a murano? Looks like it may be... would bulk your listing up nicely if you could provide history and origin, etc.

I presume it is ,but cant state it as such ,it was apparently acquired in Spain in 1973 odd , and is apparently hand made , i cannot vouch for it , it is a solid piece of glass though .

If we compare the base of these Murano chickens to the base,mouth and feathers of the one in question it is obvious that this is (Sorry) a crude copy of Murano glass.The thickness, especially of the feathers is obvious.

Here is an example for 30 dollars on shopwiki.com

I have no idea .I personally dont like it at all .
