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.
