Large Vase German??? Signed with Umlaut 16"ish
« on: April 10, 2008, 04:36:29 PM »
I was given this vase several years ago and have tried on and off to identify it since. I cannot read the signature except to say it appears to have an Umlaut in it. Any help will be appreciated. - Sarah

I appreciate you looking Pamela! I am beginning to think it is not a word at all lol. I wonder if it ever happens that a family puts their own name on glass. My grandfather went through a phase where he engraved everything they owned in case of theft.

I was only joking about putting family names on glass ;D This vase didn't come from my grandfather. He did go on an engraving craze though, putting his name and address on all of his electronics.

I have been looking for images of GĂĽnter or GĂĽnther, but I haven't found anything so far. :'(

I keep thinking if I stare at the signature long enough I will finally be able to read it.
