Londonloet…
(47 items)

Most of you will know by now that my eye for attributions is pretty terrible. I hardly ever get it right! Mind you - it's not made any easier that hardly any of my pieces are marked in any way.
This piece is therefore unusual, and exciting, for me. It has a country of origin mark associated with post-1918 Kralik production, on a recognised Kralik decor. Even I can't get that wrong - I hope. You will find examples of Kralik pieces in this decor on both kralik-glass.com and Alfredo's site, https://sites.google.com/site/loetzandglass/kralik-6--straight-mark
The only complication is the rest of the numbers/letters marked on the pontil mark. They appear to be handwritten or painted on, and I am assuming until told otherwise that they were added later as catalogue marks for someone's collection. If anyone has any ideas, I'd be grateful to hear them.

    just curious, what are the measurements?
  3. Londonloetzlearner Londonloetzlearner, 2 years ago
    Thank you, Czechman! She's 6.5" tall, 5" top diameter, 3.75" base diameter.

    the red interior is stunning!

    Thank you Czechman - it's a wee bit grubby at the moment, or you'd have a full interior picture, but the colour is even more stunning in person.

    Thank you, Obscurities! I thought the secondary marks couldn't really be anything else. I'd love to know where it came from, to have such a developed cataloguing system. I found it in France, that's all I know, but it cannot always have been there, or I assume the mark would have carried the French spelling.

    when i get a piece in that really dirty and gross on interior i fill it with tepid water and drop in two denture cleaning tablets and let it soak a few hours or more depending on the funk!!.. lol ive had some i swear looked like it was used as a spittoon.. works great and safe.. how do you clean the interiors?
  16. Londonloetzlearner Londonloetzlearner, 2 years ago
    I'll have to try that! I tend to stick to warm soapy water, a soft brush and when things are really bad, glass beads. The beads are especially good when you can't get into the long slender necks with a brush.

    just want to add i still have all my teeth!!..im 41 years old! not ready for the dentures just yet ;)
  18. Londonloetzlearner Londonloetzlearner, 2 years ago
    And now you've spoiled it for me! I had visions of the teeth swimming around in the choicest pieces of Czech glass! ; ) Still, give it 30 years ...
