Very nice, not easy to photograph this type of work is it ?  ;D
Dino Diaconescu? ... not that I've ever heard of him.

A bit about him, there are a lot of French references.
This vase hase the same signature, not ID'd but has a label 'Made in Romania'.
The first and last characters are the same - just noticed.
Wow, youre right.  That is the same signature.  Oh man, that is such a shame if this goes unresolved.  I think the first name is Gino or Dino. And the capitals are so stylized that I would think this glassmaker was of substance.  Still hoping someone can recognize it, in my view its so beautiful it deserves to be attributed.  Thanks for helping out, a great and tremendous thank you for your scope of these posts.

Thank you Alan! I'll advise the client simply sell it online and fish a bit. More to come.  :)
Same signature as this one, not resolved as far as I know though:,43664.0.html

Dear All,

good evening. Something about candy twist/stripe that just captures the eye.

My take is English. S&W or ??   :)

What say you?

Kind regards

Just for interest, another 'lobed' glass but late 19C Italian, apparently the form derived from a type of Bohemian Baroque glassware:,61000.0.html
