vetraio50
(444 items)

Bought here in Sydney, Australia. Loetz Zephir Chiné. Coral and shell cornucopia as if found on the sea floor. I've been told by Alfredo Villanueva that it is from the late nineteenth century. For me it represents Naturalism and the influence of Nature on the applied arts.

    Actually, it is the height of the Art Nouveau concept of organic form, like Loetz or Kralik flower forms of the 1890's.
  2. ozmarty ozmarty, 3 years ago
    WOW!! SOOOO BEAUTIFUL.

    Membranous-like, with an almost macabre beauty,.......I love it!
  10. vetraio50 vetraio50, 2 years ago
    Many thanks Budek!
    I've seen this quote: "Naturalism is the generic term for Art Nouveau, Organic Architecture and Expressionism". Perhaps you've picked up on the expressionist distortion of the concept of 'cornucopia' and placing it in those arms of coral; I agree it's beauty is macabre. The glass artists at Loetz and Kralik (as Alfredo says) were up there with the best.

  20. Stillwater Stillwater, 2 years ago
    Oh my god... Was this a thrift store find? Or did you pay retail? I really would like to learn about art glass, but it seems like theres soooo much to know... However, THIS would deffinitely be something I'd pick up at a thrift store, its pretty obviously something good
  21. vetraio50 vetraio50, 2 years ago
    It was from the Collector's Fair here in Sydney the first Sunday of each month. I paid eighty for it.
  22. inky inky, 2 years ago
    I have to say it again vetraio5 ..this is gorgeous I love looking at it!.....:-)
  23. Stillwater Stillwater, 2 years ago
    I know my mother has some Loetz thats valuable, that favrile stuff with the sterling overlay, but is it all very valuable? Or only the early pieces like this?
  24. vetraio50 vetraio50, 2 years ago
    I'd have a look at the auction sites. Quittenbaum, Christies, etc. as well as ebay for ideas about values ..... supply and demand are always the determining factors.
  25. Greatsnowyowl Greatsnowyowl, 2 years ago
    you left out the most important factor Vetraio, Condition.. Color also matters what is it, the three c's.. Condition, Color and something else. Maybe Condition again? LOL
  26. vetraio50 vetraio50, 2 years ago
    True snowy! This one is damaged, but then I didn't care.
    Perhaps the other C is "cross-over"?
  27. Alfredo Alfredo, 2 years ago
    CONDITION, COLOR, COST!
  28. Greatsnowyowl Greatsnowyowl, 2 years ago
    for 80 bucks who cares right? I'd have shelled out 80 for it without thinking. :)

  36. kralik1928 kralik1928, 1 year ago
    Looks great, i have seen a cornucopia in a german museum (not Passau) that shows a very similar theme and technique. let me know if you need pic, best guess: Loetz Prochaska
  37. vetraio50 vetraio50, 1 year ago
    Many thanks kralik1928!
  38. vetraio50 vetraio50, 1 year ago

  43. ozmarty ozmarty, 10 months ago
    Hi Vet me old cobba , just thought I'd thow a spanner in the works .........
    This could be by Harrach!
    on page 267 of the "New " Book ieFrom Neuwelt to Whole world by Jan Mergl.
    illustration 311 shows similar in this colour .
    will try to scan if I have time latter

  44. vetraio50 vetraio50, 10 months ago
    Thanks Marty! Love to see it!
  45. vetraio50 vetraio50, 10 months ago
    Just changed the Title, Mart!
  46. ozmarty ozmarty, 10 months ago
    I'm off to Qld tomorrow and should be out the door now will try to do it
  47. vetraio50 vetraio50, 10 months ago
    No problems Marty. Maybe some of the hounds will comment. I do not have the book! Enjoy the warmer climes!
  48. vetraio50 vetraio50, 10 months ago
    Many thanks dlfd911!
  49. vetraio50 vetraio50, 8 months ago
    Thanks again MSL!
  50. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 8 months ago
    Kevin, this one is COOL!!
  51. vetraio50 vetraio50, 8 months ago
    Hi MSL!
    It looks like it has just been plucked out of the Mediterranean!
    A piece of Mother Nature's Art on the ocean floor.
    I think the construction of the foot is different to the Harrach versions.
  52. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 8 months ago
    Kevin, this is so natural and so really amazing to look at!!! Great score!! BTW I am learning to love a piece with it not being totally intact! If we wanted that..we should buy new!!!
  53. vetraio50 vetraio50, 8 months ago
    Totally correct.


  54. vetraio50 vetraio50, 8 months ago
    I didn't buy it to sell it.
    There is really only a market for perfect pieces unless they are extraordinarily rare.
    But this has given me great pleasure: the money paid for it has been totally well spent.
  55. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 8 months ago
    Kevin, was it reasonable? I love my Blue Kralik from the SA for $2.99 with 2 broken feet ...its one of my nearest and dearest to me...XO
  56. vetraio50 vetraio50, 8 months ago
    It was no bargain I paid three figures.
  57. SEAN68 SEAN68, 8 months ago
    and it was a stunning 3 figures:)
  58. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 8 months ago
    Kevin, oh wow!!!! If I had the money I would have paid that for the vase too!!!! XOXOX
  59. vetraio50 vetraio50, 8 months ago
    I had sold some stuff and was all cashed up at the time.
    The money itself is not important.
    Money is just time ... and effort.
    A means to an end: Buying eye candy?
  60. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 8 months ago
    Kevin, that is what I am doing...selling my personal jewelry to fund my new found glass passion!!!! I need to go to BGAA (Bohemian Glass Aholics Anonymous)..since being on CW!!!!! I was getting over Antique Moonstones! SIGH :0
