So does anyone have a strong feeling whether mine is Kralik or from Taiwan?
Many thanks, Anthony

My strong feeling is not Kralik.
Another strong feeling I have is that Romanian glass is very underrated.
I do think these are gorgeous and well made pieces.    :)

Sue do you think this might have been made in Romania sold out of Taiwan?

eeeeek! 
I can't comment on Japanese or Taiwan glass or importers - I don't know anything about them!
Why would glass get transported between Romania and Taiwan? It would seem to me to be an unwarranted expense. But there's a lot of that around these days.  ::)
I'm frankly just stuck on these pieces. I think they're lovely and well made. I don't think they're too old.
These may well be inspired by old designs, some folk may have the older "originals" if they exist.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Sorry I was only asking because Mel had id'd them earlier in the thread as hers had a Taiwan label on it.
I wondered whether they might have been made in Romania and imported into Taiwan for wholesale shipping round the world. 
Otherwise the assumption with a Taiwan label on the base would be made in Taiwan I guess.

It's a possibility...  ;D
Romanian glass is found in antique centres, charity shops, boot sales and flea markets, in TKMaxx and on internet auction sites. I've not seen any being sold "first-hand" apart from in TKMaxx. The only exception I know of is Ioan Nemtoi, who is currently working in Canada and in his own name.

The only Taiwanese glass I've seen is in the form of small tea-light holders and bowls, with a cloudy design of white or pastel blue in clear, (which looks very like some Kosta Boda), but they have labels on the base reading "Partylite Made in Taiwan", with an image of a sort of building with three towers on it.
