Help ID My Alabastro bird Alabastrobird

I have been trying for a number of years to get some sort of ID but so far failed :sign23:so am hoping someone on this site might recognize it.
It stands approx 10" high and has opaline or alabastro bird atop a treestump. The stump has some applied decoration, some of which has gold inclsions and underneath has an indented and polished pontil.

I did wonder if it was a Murano piece? No label or signature.

Looks like a quality piece. I'd be surprised if it wasn't Murano.


PS. It's best to load the photos individually. Difficult to see the detail on the smaller ones.

Looks like Murano to me. I suspect the tree stump is uranium glass

My understanding of pate de verre is it's grains of coloured glass that are put in a mould and heated until the particles fuse together.
This doesn't look as though it's been made by that technique, although that might just be the quality of the photos.
