There have been some fabulous vaseline pieces appearing on CW recently. Here are my somewhat less inspiring recents finds. The exciting thing for me is that none of them were advertised as such, so they were a delighful surprise.

Two of them have already been posted on here. The third, I would guess, may be Kralik, given the elaborate floral top, and the similarities to other pieces pieces by Kralik that I have seen both here on CW and elsewhere. I would love to hear your views - especially if I'm wrong!

The uranium in this third piece is so strong it pretty much glows in ordinary daylight. As for bright sunshine ...

    Thank you austrohungaro, Obscurities, vetraio50, and czecehman for the loves :)
    Any thoughts on possible attributions for the floral one?
  2. Londonloetzlearner Londonloetzlearner, 5 years ago
    I really am having a bad day for attributions! Charcoal's link (the previous comment) is a subtle suggestion that the vase in pictures 2, 3 and 4 is English -although that vase has a rough pontil and mine is polished.
    Oddly, if it is English, my floral vase came from Germany, whereas the silver-mounted vase came from English eBay.

    Love the Kralik vase. I have a couple of vase that are similar. Yours is especially nice!

    Thank you Vaselinealley - that's a real compliment given your fantastic collection!

    Thank you, Scandinavian-pieces - I rather hoped you'd like the clematis! This one's first appearance is with a Loetz clematis bowl in an earlier post - I couldn't resist!
    Lots of small son stuff this weekend - Jubilee picnics and walks to the river to see the big flotilla. Here's hoping it doesn't rain too much! Have a great weekend ;)
    Oh and there are 7 different clematis flowering in my postage stamp today. I think it's a record! x

    We are so lucky we live 10 minutes walk south of the river so no public transport nightmare. We wouldn't be going if we couldn't walk - its going to be busy. Parking restrictions already all round us.
    I can't get all 7 in one pic! I'm already struggling to get them with the glass - mostly they're at the top of high fences! Mind you, I might try for the Florida when some flowers come out. It's looking great, if I do say so myself! Ah, my email tells me you found the bowl!
  7. Londonloetzlearner Londonloetzlearner, 5 years ago
    Love the pic! I may have to steal that idea if I get any good ones this weekend. The Florida, fortunately is quite low. The others, not so much! The bowl perched on the ladder for its picture with the Barbara Jackman. The others are even higher, so I may have to give up and settle for something more earthly!
