Alfredo

It has not arrived yet, but I alreadyknow it is going to be part of my Xmas decor arrangement. Ruckl Coral shimmy, 11.75" tall, the "shimmies" (pulls) in bright red extend to the very edge of the vase, on a green aventurine background. One of the most spectacular vases I own.

The FIRST photoalso shows a piece that has gone through several identifications. I bought it thinking it was Loetz. Both Harrach, Riedl and Ruckl used red and green together. My three Harrach pieces are gred with green aventurine and are enameled. So does my Riedl, but it has a characteristic Geometric shape. This Ruckl shows the trademark pulls. The bowl seems a solid undistinguishable dark color with red glass spots and green oventurine, all cased in clear. I tend towards Harrach on this one. Anyone, it will be added to my Xmas green/red glass theme.

The third photo shows a similar decor at a Tango show in the Czech republic.

The 4th photo shows a smaller example of the shape, with a different decor. The original photos for the original posting were deleted thanks to an anonymous tip to CW that I was using dealer's photos.

By the way, a descendant of the Ruckl family, Jiri Ruckl, was able to obtain permission from the Czech government to buy back son of the shuttered factories, so as of 1993 Ruckl continues in production.

    wait, is this piece have this label?
  9. Alfredo Alfredo, 2 years ago
    No, Leah's vase has it, and that vase is decidedly Victorian/ Harrach. She posted it originally. I am just reposting to use the 4th photo! I am removing it and posting something else, much closer to the Ruckl.

    I believe that this is a 8-1/8 inch version of your vase shape.
