Ioan Nemtoi did use this sort of metalwork sometimes, M - but this is not his work!  ;D
I'd agree, though, that Romania is a good place to start for this bit.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Three Wise Women would have asked for directions, arrived on time, delivered the baby, cleaned the stables and made a casserole...

And there WOULD have been peace on earth.

Hi Sue, thanks for that.  I'm focusing in on Anca Florea Podaru at the moment as her work seems most like the vase I have.  I'll report back if I find the source.  Thanks once again for those who have taken time out to help and pointed me in the direction of our Romanian friends.

Hi, just to update you that "artgalleryinabox" who deal with Romanian glass artists in the USA believe it is made by Dan Bancila.   I'll keep on it but kudos and thanks to flyingfree for the direction.

I assume you saw his blog, at the very back of his stand here has a couple of similar pieces... but way more colour happy  than yours. http://danbancila.blogspot.fr/2008/05/cer-glass-2008.html gives his email on the blog too.

Great!  Thanks very much.  I've emailed him and hope for a positive reply.

But Anca might be worth contacting too as your piece is decorated in the same way as she does.

http://www.amaglass.ro/

Most of her work has the edges of the rim covered by metal so I could not tell if she left the top edge of the glass undecorated like yours... finally found an example that confirms that she does. Not many do it that way.

Hi, yes, I'm following through on Anca as well as I said earlier.  I'm learning a lot about Romanian glass in the process.  Some interesting stuff being made there.

More from Mirela at Artgalleryinabox:

"I used to purchase from Bancila for my gallery and I had a piece just like this one, thus I am sure it's his. It has no name, as far as I know, I used to name them for the gallery, for inventory purposes, and I called this line of vases Bucharest, but Dan did not name this vases, he named his collector's pieces crafted out of with crystal and bronze."

So it looks like we have a winner.  I'm still waiting on replies to my emails to Dan Bancila and Anca.

Thanks to everybody who helped.
