Ok so I picked this up this morning as I thought I'd seen the shape before and this vague notion it was by Ray Annenberg. Having got home and checked it isnt right for his unfortunately Waaah (should of remembered he dosent really do multicolour ones). So was wondering if anyone recognised the shape. There is some sort of signature to base but I cant read it. Possibly from one of the Murano factories, but as yet I havent found an example of the same shape anywhere. Its 4" tall and has lovely red and green coloring internally. Any help gratefully received.

Signature looks like Mtarfa, and there's a similar one on ebay right now listed in glass paperweights as "Rare Mtarfa Glass Elephant" for comparison.
