Probably pretty mundane but does anyone know who this glass bird is by?

I think every glass works and studio made birds in versions of this shape, Mdina, Isle of Wight, Wedgwood...etc ..etc. Without a label it would be hard to say. Hopefully someone somewhere has a labelled one!

Doesn't strike me as an Isle of Wight or Mdina bird.

I wasn't really suggesting that it was, just pointing out that everyone and his dog has made similar shapes over the years.
