    Absolutely 100% Rindskopf Pepita - Nice bowl! I bet it has a beautiful polished pontil on the bottom too.

    Thank you, do you know what the initals would mean and not sure about the pontil... I have no idea what that would be... thank you so much.

    is this also very collectable?

    Not L.C.T ? :)

    LCT is a fake Tiffany signature added at a later time. Rindskopf Pepita is very desirable in its own right and Bohemian glass collectors value it, but of course it isn't as expensive as Tiffany. It dates to the 1900-1915 era.

    yes LCT

    The pontil is where the glass is attached to a rod at the bottom while the rim is being finished. In quality glass, the mark is frequently ground and flame polished to smooth the mark where it was subsequently broken from the rod... see third picture... http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/81155-large-scale-rindskopf-pepita-fan-vase?in=user

    thank you all so very much, i paid 150.00 for the piece, they had it at 200, so i guess i didn't get taken to the back completely. i like the colors more than the price.

    Also for future... a few other Pepita shapes to watch for... http://www.collectorsweekly.com/assets/stories/E14Zqqp5Ok6sAaHaRRfuMQ.jpg

    You did alright. $150 is a good buy... one of my favorite glass decors... I have a similar bowl with the "Thumbprint" optic in my collection, only the rim is straight, not ruffled, and the red glass along the top is a narrower band. Rindskopf made lots of variations.
