Need store for Murano glass figurine

Hello all,
I went to Italy in May and visited the Murano glass factory. I purchased a beautiful glass horse - the kind that stand up on their hind legs. Unfortunately a friend broke it so I need to replace it. Does anyone know the name of a store that I can contact for this in Murano? Thanks for any info you can provide.

Where do you live? Many local gift shops in the US have a variety of Murano glass animals.

Also look on Ebay. I just found 20 listings for Murano Glass Horse there.

Hi
which factory on Murano did you visit?
Do you have your receipt? If so, you can contact them and maybe they can send an exact replacement.
Is this a small item (under 5 inches or so) or a grander piece?
Ebay has primarily the smaller items (occasional exceptions), for a large one you can also look at the Gumps catalog.

If you're still searching

the Winterthur catalog

www.winterthurgifts.com

or 1 800 767 0500

has a 6" high Murano glass bust of a horse (No legs, just upper torso)
Price looks to be reasonable for the piece, on sale $39.95
