  1. I HAVE ADDED THE PICTURE OF THE PATTERN DESIGN.
  2. GlueChip, it's awesome. They are attributed to Kralik. Do you have any marked with a semicircle? I'm also in NY, and have quite a collection of Czech glass.
  3. Now you have to find one in red . . . . .
  4. Bronze Glatt Rusticana is quite rare. I only have one in my collection!
  5. I go with Poshinger.
  6. More photos would be needed: top, bottom, any markings.
  7. Most of you know the iconic Rusticana Leaf vase wjioch I own in two sizes. Well, this piece is the same size as the smaller leaf and, coincidentally, the smaller tree trunk. I can't wait to get home...
  8. This is THE classic Amphora piece!
  9. Wow! I have the fccimile edition of Bradley's La Mort d'Arthur.
  10. Kralik. Those handles were means tofr ornamental rings, like they appear in ancient vases.
  11. Love the group postings!
  12. Actually, in the Ruckl catalog there is a pattern called Metallit, which contains mica grains. There are no references for Welz. Lovely grouping!
  13. From my experience with crackle, this is Kralik.
  14. I've that happen to me so many times, I have lost count. But gorgeous piece, even if damaged.
  15. It might also be Roessler, I think.
  16. I too have a photographic memory. Now, if we could only find the design n. for my vase!
  17. There is a concerted effort by people associated with the Passaum Museum to reclassify all of this Czech glass as German Heckert.
  18. Anne, who do you think I bought it from? By the way, an important thing to know: Kralik Senior worked for Harrachov, for whom he created Peloton glass before opening his own factory. Therefore, ther...
  19. I did check. You are right. What confused me was the odd formatting of that page. I'll revise my review on Amazon. Still, and unfortunately, apart from the section on bubbly glass, the book is not...
  20. I agree with Warren. I have done quite a study of cartouches on Kralik glass.
  21. It is still going for, at Ruby Lane, as Loetz, for close to $2000.
  22. If you get the Bernanek book go to page 7, which ends in the middle of a sentence, and turn the page. There is an entire new section ,but the ending to the previous sentence is not there! And this i...
  23. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/126180-early-beranek-glass-documentation?in=user Very early Beranek from my collection.
  24. Are you into chronometers? Which one would you recommend?
  25. FISHIOWA, I just posted the picture you asked for.
  26. The bowl is not mine. Count the number of dollar signs and you'll have a good guess of what it was going for!
  27. How cow! No idea he was THAT beautiful!
  28. I meant Myras of all sizes.
  29. to paris1925: so do I. In fact, I have a solid collection of large Ikora pieces, as well as-sized Myras.
  30. Another way of solving this is finding Erphila pieces with a D-U number or that appear in a D-U catalog. The dime marks, unfortunately, are too generic to originate a manufacture ID. I recall that i...
  31. EVERYONE, CHECK OUT THE ADDED DOCUMENTATION!
  32. gARY, DOES YOUR PITCHER HAVE A PRODUCTION NUMBER? AS YOU CAN SEE, MINE HAS A 1451, THE TOUCAN IS 881. I HAVE SENT FOR THE DUTMAR-URBACH CATALOG, OF WHICH THERE ARE SEVERAL AVAILABLE.
  33. Even better. I have documentary proof right now that these Erphila pitchers are Ditmar-Urbach! Just amazing!
  34. Both are Kralik. Frit is also called overshot. PK threading on overshot is vertical.
  35. You both have made my day. Check out my posts for buttons which resemble vases. By the way, the last card holder (pic. 4) is embossed in a semicircle with the word "Czechoslovakia".
  36. I just had to find the right (useful) shape. I'm amazed at how fast I've accumulated Harrachov!
  37. And probably the oldest piece in my glass collection.
  38. GOOD GRIEF, I'D KILL FOR THOSE MUGS!
  39. TO ICOLLECTGLASS: I ASSUME A VERY RARE WMF RED TANGO, OF WHICH I ALREADY HAVE THE SAME SHAPE IN GREEN. IN FACT, IT HAS ALREADY SHIPPED.
  40. I bet you must have some Czech costume jewelry!
  41. All three are authentic. And so are the marks. Marks do not authenticate a piece. They authenticate PROVENANCE.
  42. Smiata, I had one, a tiny flower pot, marked on the bottom, for years. and i just got the bug: I have bought 6 more! Watch out for the posting.
  43. To all the misguided newbies here. I am the one that identified this decor as a Kralik decor. I had the inkwells and then I found the vases. I have repeatedly asked for researc to prove me wrong, ...
  44. Even if it were not Harrachov I would have bought it. Whatever it may turn out to be, now I can gaze at it until it's time for one of us to go.
  45. Working my tail off. Imagine me with a Harrach collection!
  46. NEW PICTURES!
  47. We need a pic. of the mark! Not that I doubt it; I just cannot get enough of them!
  48. Prove it's Welz with REAL RESEARCH.
  49. A little bird told me you'd post this today . . . . . and it did come out of somewhere . . . . gorgeous. I have it in Zephir chiné.
  50. And, in a classic mistake we all keep on making, I cleaned the silver, and in doing so, I have erased the Rockwell mark. At least, we have photographic documentation. Or let's see that if I use a fla...
