Made by the Vetreria Artigiana Aldo Bon factory, and still bears the original factory label (worn) which reads "Murano, A Bon". This glassworks was setup by Aldo Bon and Adriano Quarisa in 1960, and was apparently only open for a short time. Aldo Bon was previously a master glassblower at Aureliano Toso where he produced designs by Dino Martens.

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks, just a very slight roughness to the tip of the "nose", probably from when it was pinched and shaped during manufacture, see final picture.
