Just a few months ago, there was a Tango exhibition in the Czech Republic.

It upset everything we know about Tango glass.

These vases are attributed to Franz Tomschicka. I have not been able to find anything about him on Internet. He might have been a designer working for a manufacturer, or the owner of a Czech glasshouse himself. I suspect the former. Ruckl? Kralik?

The tall one is 11.25"; the other two. 7.25". No pontil or mark.

As usual, I sleep with my eyes open. Sleep is a waste of precious time.

Correction: Kostyan refers to a town.

    Hi Al. I've been looking too.
    I think his name comes in two variants:
    Franz Tomschick and Frantisek Tomschick.
    The town was Kostany aka Kost'any (Kos?any u Teplic-Sanova) which is around Teplice/Teplitz. It seems their secessionist wares are mistaken for others around Teplitz eg "J. Rindskopf's Söhne" and later with Kralik according to this Czech language site:
    http://www.staralenora.cz/secese.htm
    There they put it down to movements between the Sumava region and Teplitz.

    Hey alfredo, I have a short green vase identical to the shape of yours, with red and more on the bottom of the vase. I love the tall red one you show here.
