FHE FIRST TWO VASES CORRESPOND TO DESIGN #72 (P. 186) OF THE HECKERT BOOK. BOTH ARE 10" TALL, VERY HEAVY GLASS, LARGE POLISHED PONTILS.

PLAYING WITH THE SECOND PIECE, I NOTICED THAT THE BLUE-GREEN LINES MATCH A KRALIK GLASS TYPE , ALSO IN GOLD WITH BLUE-GREEN SWIRLS. THIS IS THE PIECE THAT DOES NOT QUITE MATCH THE DESIGN.

PIC 3 ILLUSTRATES QUITE WELL THE PROBLEMS I HAVE BEEN HAVING WITH THE SHAPE DRAWINGS. ONE CAN BARELY IDENTIFY THE SHAPES. I'D RECOMMEND THE DRAWINGS BE
REPRODUCED BY HAND, CREATING A CATALOG THAT WOULD BE MORE ACCESIBLE.

PIC 4. #75, 13", WHICH IS, INCREDIBLY, INCLUDED IN THE SAME PAGE (TO THE RIGHT). I REMEMBER AS IF IT WERE TODAY THAT I BOUGHT IT AT OUR LOCAL FLEA MARKET ON MY BIRTHDAY, CENTURIES AGO.

ON MY PREVIOUS HECKERT POST, A FRIEND HAS COMMENTED THESE PIECES MUST BE SEEN TO BE BELIEVED, AND I CONCUR. NO PICTURE CAN GIVE AN ACCURATE PICTURE OF THEIR BEAUTY.
