Whoever made the law, made the loophole.

All of the pieces above were bought, not sold on E-Bay. They simply changed owners. Each knows the other' s tastes (glass, food, wine, music) inside out. NO money was exchanged.Desire (and in my case, boredom) moved us.

1. A Moser Oriental mosque vase/lamp seriously and improbably signed to the teeth on the inner neck rim. It took me quite a while to find it!
2. A gorgeous Loetz Diana. I already have 6, counting this one. My sacred motto; if you like the design, there is Always room for one more. My guess: 7".
3. At last I have a pair! Rindskopf's gold Persica. My guess: 7 to 8" because of the peaked rim, so similar to Loetz vessels.
4. The true object of boundless desire on my part and the one who started the haggling: a 6" Rindskopf aventurine. I have a larger version.
Together, they represent the very best of Czech glass Jugendstil production.

All's well that (hopefully) ends well. Happiness is a new Czech glass toy.

    WE HAVE A WONDERFULLY MUSICAL WORD IN SPANISH (NOTICE THE ASSONANCE--REPETITION OF A VOWEL): CAMBALACHE (FROM CAMBIO, EXCHANGE). BARTER HAS NO MUSIC (BUT BARTENDER DOES LOL)
