I'll promise to stop at ten enamel decors then move on to Loetz enamels...

Here is an interesting pattern from the Czechoslovakian region 1920-1938 that I call "lace". It reminds me lace pieces made by grandmas or sold at thrift stores...but on a side note... have you seen the incredible Dagobert Peche lace pieces made for the Weiner Werkstate?

Again, based on the materials and technique variations there were probably more than a few glass decorating companies here.... You can see an element of geometry followed by a border of intricate floral enameling. The pattern repetition is perfectly juxtaposed onto Deco glass. This pattern is especially beautiful in large bowls, chargers or plates

    There's no need to stop. I'm enjoying the ride!
    All of these were hand done, weren't they?

    yes, i wish i know how!!! i suspect an assembly line approach like one person laying out the line with pen, another with enamel floral motifs and a third with the white or gold details

    Could be loetz or kralik tango- either way very nice. green bowls are pretty rare. i know we think of the kralik pontils as being flatter and not as magnificent as loetz but sometimes they do a similar pontil. the green is typical of kralik because of the opacity and tone- Loetz = celery. Kralik = gumby green. email me ill send pics
