charcoal
(15 items)

The illustrations above are from a ca 1931 Antonin Rückl & Sons Catalog. The Ruckl catalog page was published in "Collectible Bohemian Glass II" 1915-1945, by R & D Truitt, on Page 75.

This first illustration shows scattered groups of murrine or cane style decorations on a solid colored background. It's proper name is Tango Murano. Yes, Ruckl actually had a Millefiori style decor named Tango Murano.

The second illustration shows a similar Ruckl decor named Kristall Murano. This decor consists of all over murrine or cane style decorations in a rainbow of tango colors.

The third illustration shows Ruckl Decor Number 12528. This decor consists of dark colored webbing over a green or contrasting background.

Instead of showing live examples matching these Art Deco decors, I thought it would be best to see what others come up with.

Do any of these decors look familiar?

Last picture shows a ball vase with a distinct narrow rim and collar shape. This vase was on display as Ruckl in the 2012 Tango Exhibit. It was likely manufactured both with and without handles. This vase shape was imported into the USA as it is often found with providence marks.

All constructive comment and questions are welcome.

    Beautiful, just beautiful...doesn't Gary have some similar in colour and pattern in green as your photo 3 and also a red one?

    And help me, in your last photo, were Loetz the only ones who did the black handles or were these applied by other factories? Look forward to any information.

    Again, a great find Charcoal...I am desperately seeking any material on a Tango. Would be awesome if the touted Tango book comes out soon...

    Thank you Aimathena and AnneLanders! Happy Easter to you both.

    Anne, Gary has similar ball vases in red and green and there are many webbed decors on CW. They usually get attributed to Kralik. Search ball vase or webbed vase using the links below to see more potential relatives.

    I believe that contrasting colors were used by several companies, both known and unknown, during the tango era. It's great news about the new tango book. Hopefully it has manufacturers mentioned too as not all glassware reference materials do. The authors who choose to name manufacturers sometimes base their attributions on flawed methods or information provided by others. There is often contradicting information which seems to indicate that this is true. Sometimes attributions change when labeled vases or other documentation presents itself. There are things to be learned when doing research that are overlooked by many, like the decor tables above for example. Hopefully the new Tango book helps, but I don't have my hopes up. This area of research is a minefield.

    Here's a link to a large collection of Tango glass that you will LOVE. : )

    Thanks for this. Yes I saw Gary's in green next to red and amethyst. And someone else I think too, was it Jags or Jericho..anyhow...

    That link is just incredible. Is it a museum or some ones collection...out of this world....thank you...I'm going to study it Sunday. I'm out tomorrow, then I'm going to go through everything I have to help get me further up to speed....

    Hope you've had a good week?

    Thank you Anne, I believe the glass collection in the link is a private collection. Yes, Jags, Jericho, and others have similar kaleidoscope, marbled, or webbed decors posted on CW. There is an abundance of information on CW and many willing to help your with your research. Remember to buy what you like and you can't go wrong. : ) Your collection is looking great!

    Thank you for asking about my week... The best part about this week is that it was short as we were closed today. Adjustments in routine are always a challenge but I'm having fun and making the best of it.
