Is this vase made and signed by Tagliapietra and if so is it Lino?

Hi.  I'm sorry I can't be of much help but I found this auction site that has a vase listed with Lino Tagliapetra signature, which is not the same as the signature on yours.  Here is a link to the site - you need to click on 'view more images' then you'll see his signature.  I hope that is of some help!

Actually, I have just found this posting on the GMB re Andrea Tagliapietra's signature.  Yours looks much more like her signature.

You are right, Nancy. It is Andrea, who is a man.  ;)

Thanks for keeping me right Anita!  And that's great that you confirm it's his signature.   :)

Thank you all for the help - Andrea its is, I bought it as i liked it but due to a major color scheme change in the house was looking to sell it on and only then did i do some initial research into the Tagliapietra name only to find there was more than one and that one was in fact 'the one'.

Sorry for your, but I agree with the previous replies.
You man is Andrea Tagliapietra, not Lino.
Very different technique and style between them.
Sorry because the different name make a different in value of several 1000s Euro...  :P
Anyway a nice piece!

Ciao
