What the heck are theese, Looking for ID?

I picked these up on the auction site and was thinking they were vintage. They seem to be in a newer type of condition. All are wood (repaints, homemade, is this style still being produced?) There air brushed.

I'd say so as well , ......looks like a version of the "Bass Oreno" , ....but I've never saw this one before with it's tapered tail end !

But the way the eyes are painted looks exactly like on my own few "Bass Orenos" .

The Luhr Jensen "Bass Oreno" should be still available , made from timber , ......or production was seized just recently ?

Did some googling , but could never find anything about this particular , strongly tapered lure shape , sorry !

This is the Bass Oreno & you can see the similarity with the eyes as Deimai suggested, but I can`t find that shape either. Maybe it is a very late model or the eyes are copied to make it look related.

......... through it's history of being the "Bass Oreno" was obviously made with different tail tapers , ......but none to this extend shown !

http://www.antiquefishinglures.com/oreno.htm

Otherwise I'd be with Vince , ....maybe an inaccurate knock-off version ???

Cheers , diemai howdy

PS:

I had once considered to make a knock-off with a tapered tail as well , but I've dropped the idea , since this changes the balance of the lure in the water significantly , ...making it tail-heavy(unless extra ballast is added in front part) , resulting into the scooped mouth portion not shouldering into the water properly anymore .

Just out of curiousity , .....have you swum one of these yet , .....and if so , ...how does it act ?

Another PS :

Just came into my mind , .....me stupid -duh -duh -duh , .....if it was a genuine "Luhr Jensen" , ..it should have been marked , shouldn't it ?????

Are they a type of J plug perhaps?

The more I look at them, the more I think so.
