I have this lampwork dancing lady which I broke within hours of taking possession!!  :'(
 
I've had her for a few years now although she's tucked away in a box with other broken figures. I think that she's beautifully made and wondered if anyone might recognise the work. She's about 6 inches tall, including the base which is now sadly separated from her. She's a very pale green colour, becoming pale yellow towards the base. (The colour in some of the pics is a bit strong . . my fault for playing around with the pictures.)

Any input will be gratefully received, as always.

Wee bump here . . Does she come under 'could have been made by any number of lampworkers'?

Tricky area Nancy, very hard to pin down to a particular maker.

I had a figure a few years ago that I was convinced was made by Istvan Komaromy. His daughter contacted me and was able to point out the subtle differences to her fathers work. The dancer I had could have been made by one of his students in his style but was not his. Later I did find a genuine Komaromy figure and those subtle characteristics gave me confidence that I had identified it correctly. Sorry, this is no help regarding your figure...

Thank you John. I had a vague hope that she might be instantly recognisable, but it seems not, which is a result in a way.  :)
