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.

    Alfredo, Could others like this have Kralik marks and still be attributed to Franz Tomschicka Kostyan? from your statement above regarding him maybe being a designer working for a mfg...like Kralik? or Ruckl? ks85 posted these earlier..the pair bearing the arched Kralik mark
