vetraio50
(515 items)

This is the 200th item on CW. So I thought I'd keep this, my latest glass purchase, for the moment. I was at the Collector's Fair two weeks ago and saw it. The dealer was not sure if it was English or Czech; she had been told it might be Kralik. I'd had a bad day the day before hunting at garage sales: my big mouth had meant that a hippo collectible was taken from me. Once bitten, twice shy! To be honest I wasn't sure until I showed it to Marty if it was Loetz. Alfredo later told me it was indeed a Mimosa Candia or is it Candia Mimosa?

It is a rarity here to see them in the wild: Loetz Mimosas I mean.
Mimosa in Australia is called 'wattle' or 'acacia pycnantha' and is the floral emblem of the country. It is a non-thorned variety particular to Australia. The name of this Loetz decor is more obvious than many.

The vase just glows!
It's like a little golden bag!
H:12 cm or 4.75"
W: 14 cm 0r 5.5"

    200 already!

    I love your Mimosa. It has a lovely shape. As for the decoration, what can I say?, , we've got a Candia Mimosa ourselves (http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/51245-ltz-candia-mimosa-prod-nr-unknown?in=user) :)

    So this was the good piece you got after that bad experiencebut didn't want to tell about!

    Good spotting ...
    Think I am up to 3 pieces found in Oz at present ... Not even sure who the distributor here was ...
    Of possible interest ... One of the glass houses (Victorian era) in the gardens at Schönbrunn in Vienna has a large section dedicated to Australasian flora ... so we were on the map ...
    Cheers

    Hi Amber! Many thanks again! If I remember you were out of town, maybe on the bike trip!
  20. AmberRose AmberRose, 2 years ago
    Nope home now and back to work...heavy sigh. Thinking of adding a week trip somewhere in August. I have loads of vacation time built up and I must use it or lose it this year. Plan on using it : )

    Sorry I meant that you missed the Loetz glass when you were on the bike trip. No matter. But get that extra week in. They will appreciate you more. Absence makes the .....

    Thanks MOON. I recently put it away for a rest. It had been on the shed since I scored it. It is now in the shed. It clashes with a new treasure. More on that later!
