Murano Art Glass was extremely popular in the mid 20th century. I would date this piece to that time period. It does have a paper label "MADE IN MURANO ITALY". The glass is a large chunk of glass and quite heavy. The metal head is gilded. The head fits over the neck and is glued in place. The head will come off if picked up by the head. The duck measures 10" long and 5 1/2" tall to the top of the head. The glass is clear and lovely. The head is quite detailed. I will be listing a vertical duck separately that make a nice companion. Very good condition.
