    I have had this for some time now, and after a lot of research i am not sure it is Tiffany, most of the signatures i have found have either been in full, numbered or just plain capitols, not this fancy scroll italics.
    The goblet is beautiful but i dont think the iridescence is there for Tiffany, but that leaves the question :- who would bother to sign this piece with such fancy italics and favrile so neatly without doing research into the signatures? it has me baffled!
    So my question is who made this and who do you think signed it?

    Bye the way, i still love it :-)
    Thanks in advance x

      It's a nice looking cup and I love it too, but some will put signatures on items to deceive and add value.

      Hi Vetraio50, your comments and advise are always welcome, and thnaks to all who love it.
      I have been looking at the plain uppercase signed one's again and i have to say a lot of them look to be dremeled and to be honest not what you would expect from a high end maker such as Tiffany? because now i am begining to wonder if this might be Tiffany after all?

      Yeah I've never seen that signature before and its not in LCT style at ALL

      this was made about 80 years after tiffany glass was made.. it's modern studio glass signed with a fake signature.
