Can anybody help identify this piece of glass for me please?
« on: November 18, 2012, 06:29:45 PM »
At least I think it's glass.  I picked this up with some other pieces as part of a job lot in South West England.  Not really my cup of tea otherwise.  I'm sure that I've seen it before somewhere but can't seem to track it down.  Any pointers would be much appreciated although I would think "once seen, never forgotten"  or maybe "once seen, best forgotton" probably applies.  It stands about 9 inches (22 cm) high and is hollow, so almost certainly intended as a vase.

nope, not a clue Neil........looks as though it's trying to copy one of those Tiffany nouveau pieces from the Grover's book.    I've seen that flecked look before but don't remember where  -  has it been acid bathed to get that effect do you think.

Hi Paul, thank for replying.  I don't think it's been acid bathed.  The "flecks" go right through the glass which appears to be cased - clear glass over whatever lies underneath to give it that flecked look.  I know what you mean about the Tiffany option.  I'll try to look at their contemporaries.   I just thought that it was such a unique looking piece that somebody on this forum would recognise it.

i think it's Romanian possibly by Ioan Nemtoi?
I'll have a quick scout and see if I can find a more definite name to investigate.

Wild handles, are they glass? The body has been acid etched and I would have thought factory rather than studio piece.

Hi, I think the handles are a form of alloy.  Thanks for the lead to Ioan Nemtoi, not a name I'm familiar with.  I'll see what I can track down.

Actually I may be wrong with that name and perhaps instead Dan Bancila or similar

Yup, I can see the Dan Bancila possibility.  Romanian then, you think?  Did he have many acolytes?

I had the wrong Ioan -  Ioan Tubi Vadan is who I was thinking of
link to another piece here by him

But is yours signed?
I think it's possible more than one maker might have made your vase but I do think it's most likely come from Romania

I think that Dan Bancila might be closer to it as he worked with fused metal and glass a lot.  Unfortunately the piece is not signed and I believe mostof Bancila's work was signed.  I got the piece in a job lot of high quality art glass - Whitefriars, Karlin Rushbrooke, Sanders and Wallace etc. - so I'm thinking it might be interesting to find out who made it.  Thanks for all your help to date.
