Question Please help

I have a Murano clown from my grandmother. Can you guys tell me anything about it? It seems like this guy has been around the house forever and I am 56 years old. I am sending pics. I included the label in the pic from the back and it is a guy in a gondola with handpainted and venetian on the label. Label is silver and black.

Hi. Your clown is Murano, it was imported by J.I. Co (Jordan Importing Company) probably sometime during the 40's or 50's. There is an identical label in the Label library, the admin added it in a few weeks ago.

Another member, Shanadie78 has a photo gallery of J.I. Co Venetian clowns, visit this link for more info:
