 :) I think it is more likely somebody will recognise the glass itself more easily than this.
Can we see it all, please?

Hi Sue,

Pic below (black cat), I thought it was by an artist called Romano Dona but the signature doesn't look the same. I've added a few pics of Romano Dona cats and it looks very similar to me so I'm stumped!?

Really very different in style.  :o
While the faces look similar, I suspect that might be because it is a fairly generic way of showing cat features. The other differences are too great, I think, to suspect the same maker.
No two cats are ever the same anyway. >^oo^<

Yes it is very different in style apart from the face as you say, so presumably not by her. Plus the few signed pieces i've seen by her have a very clear signature which obviously spells out her name, I can't even really get any letters from my one so not easy to start searching!

It's not just the somerso, the tails are totally different, as is the base.  ???
The first word looks as if it begins with a P or an R, the second Cl or Uu.
Uulem is a name. But I can't find anything associated with that and glass.

I've moved your topic to our Glass Animals section to see if any of the collectors there can help with your cat.
