These may have been made by Dinu Diaconescu, dino art glass in Rumania. Has anyone ever mentioned his work here. He's made some very nice stuff. not sure this is his but it may help some of you identify some other pieces. you can find him under listings with www.glassartists.org

Oh thanks for that :) I've had a small google around and can't see anything quite the same, but I think most of what I can see is fairly recent work perhaps. Some gorgeous pieces there though.
My instinct is that my piece is old, I really don't think it is a recent piece, however I can't prove it.

... it was confirmed as Kralik though by Alfredo Villanueva of the Loetz.com site - he said he learned about them from museums in the Czech Republic.

These may have been made by Dinu Diaconescu, dino art glass in Rumania. Has anyone ever mentioned his work here. He's made some very nice stuff. not sure this is his but it may help some of you identify some other pieces. you can find him under listings with www.glassartists.org

With the original attribution based on a museum report, museums do get things wrong, it is worth reviewing. Eliminating Diaconescu by contacting him and also by trying to get more detail on the museum attributions source.

Any developments on this? Have just posted a similar piece on this thread:

http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,49650.0.html

Jury seems to be out: Kralik v Taiwan.

Any thoughts appreciated...
Many thanks, Anthony

For what it is worth, these have never struck me strongly as Kralik, even with museum references.

I handled a pair at a show a couple of months ago and that led me further from Kralik than ever......  I would likely lean tmuch further east myself....  especially after the pair I saw....

did you not think they were good quality Craig? I'm not arguing with the Taiwan label.  But I am questioning another vase I have now.  And I think these are much better quality than that one.  I've had a green cased vase with white interior with a Taiwan label and that was truly of much inferior quality.

M, 

I felt they were OK quality.....  Not as bad as some I have seen, but certainly not of the execution, color and glass quality I would associate with older glass.  Even the way the glass surface felt was not "right".
