Although the designers at Loetz were the early innovators, they were not the only firm to make glass resembling semi-precious stones. Here are only a few varieties of marmoriertes glass:

Photo 1, L to R (all Loetz): Malachit, Onyx, Carneol, Green Onyx

Photo 2: Loetz Carneol double handled console bowl, ca. 1889

Photo 3: Loetz Carneol enameled platter, ca. 1900

Photo 4, L to R - all Harrach ca. 1900, except for the third piece from the left, which is probably Josephine glassworks, ca. 1921.

The next one I would like to find is quite rare, but I'm holding out hope: Loetz Lapis!

    TY, Warren. This helped me with two of the pieces I was not sure about.

    Hi Warren
    Great to see some older pieces ... Are any of them carrying identification for their decors ? ... Particularly 2,3 and 5 from L in photo 4 ...
    Thanks

    Hi, Steve - I don't know what they are called... the only one that has decor markings is the brown one in photo 4 (2nd from the left) - it is marked on the bottom "975/2 B. 343." in typical Harrach fashion.

    Hi Warren
    Have the middle piece in photo 4 (pink/blue/brown with ? Hellenic key) with one of the characteristic Islamic Loetz finishes (IV/103 I think) ... and I also think there is one amidst the Carneols in Passau ...
    Cheers

    Steve - if you have a IV/103, can you email a photo to me at wgallejr@comcast.net?
