Daum signature (without France)
« on: March 22, 2004, 11:52:28 PM »
Please help!  I have an auction on ebay and I received an email telling me this is a fake.  It is a Daum Crystal Dolphin my uncle purchased from Neiman Marcus in Dallas around 1972.  I was told this is not a Daum signature and that the piece is badly done. If you have any knowledge on this piece please let me know.  I don't want to sell a fake and will pull the auction.  
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=29558&item=3713013891&ssPageName=STRK:MESSE:IT
The item is listed as "Daum Crystal Dolphin with Stand
Thanks for any help.

I have a dozen pieces of Daum crystal from the 50s-70s and they are ALL signed "Daum France" - even the tiny salt cellars. So a large dolphin with just "Daum" would be suspicious.

Can't access larger picture so can't really tell.  Daum did make a large leaping dolphin on a chrome stand like this, in the seventies. They used to retail for about £250 in those days.

Thanks Tony for the website, but unfortunately it only has pre war trade mark for Daum.
Ivo, I am afraid you are right.  I've searched the web and can not find anything with just "Daum".
Thanks for writing.

Well, I just received two emails from glass distributors in France and England, and they both confirm it is a Daum original.  The piece was done in the 70's and hand signed.  They have changed their signature over the years and since it is individually etched by different people, the signature is never the same from piece to piece.
Thanks again.
