When I started collecting tango these pieces were called flashed tango- meaning a combination of tango with iridescent glass. They were all sold to me as Loetz but now there is a belief that there were many other producers in the same region that either competed with Loetz, helped Loetz or made glass for Loetz. By the way... few of these pieces are mine.

I saw one that was bid on in early eBay times that fetched several thousand dollars- (if someone owns or has a picture- please, please send me a copy) it is a tall tomato red with three drip feet and three drip handles...

Anyway...These glass factories produced glass between 1915-1938 Czechoslovakia in noveau and deco styles.
Flash tango color combinations produce a stunning contrast and cross over into fully iridescent pieces. Are they tango? who knows! everybody has a different definition and if you believe you know exactly what "Tango" is please send me the definition and I will reply with pictures that shake-up your definition.

1. "blackberry" footed cup
2. "pomegranate" application
3. drip applications
4. Lotus flower, vine, footed cup and scroll handle application
