Title: Ruby vase with gold leaf - difficult signature. ID = Sean O'Donoghue, Australia
Post by: Janew7 on March 21, 2017, 02:21:46 AM
Hi there
I've come across this lovely vase with a signature that's very hard to decipher. Vase is about 15cm tall and a deep ruby red.

It looks to me like Fjoss but I'm not having much luck with that. Also thought of Peter Goss but it's not like other examples of his work or signature.

Any ideas would be very welcome!

Sean O'Donoghue of the Sunshine Coast region of Queensland, Australia. His signature has varied a bit over time, but you should find some examples of the signature that match yours closely. Use Search at the top right to see some on the GMB. Other examples can be found in a Google search.
