Pictures not working
« Reply #10 on: April 05, 2004, 09:02:26 PM »
Hi Mike,
I went to have a look but the pictures were not working because the auction has ended. I'd really like to see the label.  Did you keep a copy of it that we could look at?
Best wishes
Angela

I did!
And I can confirm it is not cursive cyrillic - just oldfashiond illegible.

Many thanks, Ivo.
Sadly, it doesn't mean thing to me either.
Perhaps someone else knows?

It all depends on what those first letters are...

It looks like a G and a K

perhaps Getval Komarov ?sky?

The label also looks to be hanwritten. It was certainly a nice bit of glass in the feel of deco figures but I did not think it was that old.

Never did figure it out
« Reply #14 on: April 22, 2004, 08:37:49 PM »
I never did figure it out and neither could the gentlman that had it.   He pointed out that if I was frustrated looking at the images, then I would be REALLY frustrated with the lable because it was so small.  It did seem to be a nice piece though....I thought maybe late forties or fifties.  Thanks for trying though!

Name on label
« Reply #15 on: May 01, 2004, 08:08:52 PM »
Mike,

the name on the label is more than likely Istvan Komaromy. He made glass similar to Bimini.

Sorry I didn't see this in time to help but I only occasionally look on the boards and thought that it would at least let you know for next time.

Bimini type lady
« Reply #17 on: November 10, 2005, 11:13:14 PM »
I think my mystery is now solved!
I believe the printed label on my Bimini style lady could well bear the name Istvan Komaromy.  At least I can make out the surname, although it does look more like Komoramy, (the first name to me looked like Fabian  :shock: ).  Here is the pic again :

Does anyone have any info on Komaromy please?

Thanks!

It is Istvan Komaromy, and the man himself is featured at work in a British Pathe film: "Blow Pipe Art"
