Gorgeous. My first guess was Gambaro & Poggi, they seem to make a lot of striped pieces, but have absolutely no idea if this is correct or not. Very well done.

5! I'll give you 10!

It looks like Barovier & Toso graffito (I think it's called). These sell for quite handsome prices. So jealous!

There was a fish that was for auction on eBay that was made using this technique. The link is http://cgi.ebay.com/BAROVIER-MURANO-...item1c0ffd26a1. The asking price was a bit much for the present economy. People are not buying too many expensive things right now.

Bug you are sooooo lucky to have such a great find! I see why the antique dealer bugged you all day. I would have too if I were there. LOL! Very nice duck. I had to take a double take at him/her. I need to go to the UK and go to some of these car boot sales because people are findings some rare finds there for next to nothing. I just live in the wrong part of the world or something. LOL! Take care of your lovely new duck.
