    H, I saw this vase signed Gallé in a second hand store. It is pretty damaged at the top but still, I am curious to know if you think this is a real Gallé. The signature is not engraved. What do you think?

      I’d say more Romanian than French.

      Thanks, I acutally was just told the same by someone else, it is a fake. :(

      Can you see the word TIP on it?

      The Romanian ones often (but not always) have the word "TIP" on them . This is Romanian for "Type" - some European importer insisted on this to cover them selves for any copyright etc etc..

      So I guess those with TIP on are not technically forgeries as they are declaring they are copies... ?

      regards
