  1. Believe, it's Ikora. In fact, there was a series made entirely in yellow. If your vase looks "Bohemian" it is precisely because Loetz began making Schaum only after WMF had begun production and sal...
  2. Not bronze glatt. Does it even have a pontil?
  3. And Marty, people here already collect old Pyrex! I also like old kitchen utensils--I have a leather and metal corn chuck!
  4. Thank you all, and thank you Marty, for the fascinating link. There is one more thing: because of its peculiar chemical composition and its thickness, it can be used even when chipped without fear of...
  5. If you ever want to get rid of it, send it my way! As to being reported, we all know who's behind it. It's happened to all of us, here and on E-Bay. Someone ought to ask for how long does the ban a...
  6. Not truly my favorite type of glass, but I like it: too Czech Victorian! I'd go with Harrach.
  7. You are right. I have a 25 watt bulb on it, which I want to lower to 15 or even maybe 7 (if I can find them in NYC).
  8. Jeff, thanks for this very important information. I do not go for overlay, which I think does not really enhance glass, Let us also remember that it was also used at times to hide defects in the gla...
  9. Absolutely awesome!!!! Love the play of colors.
  10. And to think they were "mass produced"!
  11. Confirmed Kralik. There is NO extensive documentation on Welz.
  12. Those are all Ruckl. The yellow reds are called Pierrot. I shall send you original documentarion.
  13. I had one. A friend bought a box with puppies, I stuck my finger and one bit it. I actually pulled her out while she was hanging on. Paid five bucks for her. She was born in PR and died in Masachu...
  14. Sorry Sean, I did not understand your question. Yes, I'll be posting it, but I need examples!
  15. God forbid! I never bought any because they are technically bowls, but I'll be on the lookout for one, now that I have a tentative ID. By the way, Tango is NOT Deco in its aesthetics. It is still g...
  16. What interests me is the fitter opening. Usually one finds 2.25" for standandard use, or 3" for ceiling lamps and older bases. There are quite a bit of drawings in the Jitka book. I'll check.
  17. The metal frame appears with Czech glass bowls.
  18. I have a friend who has helped me restore some of my chipped vases. Yours is ideal because it can be cut without loss of shape, since it was blown from the top (no pontil, right?) I'll ask him.
  19. The one on the right appears as documented Ruckl in the varios Tango exhibitions in the Czech Republic. On the other hand, the one on the left is classified so far as "Kralik". That's why I prefer t...
  20. Good grief! A great find! Both the honeycomp AND the shading (which I call a Pepita variant) are documented Rindskopf!
  21. Pearl glass--my best bet hunch: Kralik. On Internet there are very useful catalogs of British hallmarks. Try those.
  22. Gorgeous!
  23. Rindskopf's "cloudy" glass.
  24. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/101383-czech-glass-british-hallmarks-an-overv I happen to have a set in this decor: two vases, an inkwell and an open salt. All but the inkwell have hallmarke...
  25. I have an 8" in iridescent purple crackle and thorns. Yours is only the second example i have seen.
  26. Boo Hoo, I was looking for one of those! Or maybe i have it. Let me look.
  27. Czech "Deco" glass adhering to the Art Nouveau principle of organic form. These vases (and make sure to look at the winner: Marty's) flow upwards.
  28. Marks belog to whoever bought the vase for export, but i have no doubt these are Kralik. In Kralik Tango, the real ID markers are the appplied decors.
  29. I think they may be Ruckl, but that's only an educated guess. Kralik is the other
  30. The definition of Deco is exactly the opposite of Art Nouveau/Jugendstil. What I find weird is that so much of the Czech Deco Export glass, particularly Kralik's, preserved the concept of organic form.
  31. Marty, I have two other pieces with the kind of foot your piece has. Did you notice yours is marked 5 times with an embossed mark, just as mine are?
  32. But. I could not even lift it . . . .
  33. Benton, thank you. Apart from poetry and glass, my passion is cooking, and I find old manual instruments more environment friendly than current electrical appliances. That grill pan is awesome!
  34. As far as I know, these are all of the colors used. No green, no blue, no black, in terms of the vases themselves.
  35. I tohught we were not allowed to discuss pricing on CW! But I know what it is: a rare set of Fry's Foval glassware. Fry Foval was an opalescent overware which I have found the best for convection ov...
  36. It could very well be Bohemian. I'll check my books.
  37. UPDATE: UV PHOTO!
  38. NEW PICTURES!
  39. I have three 12" thorn vases in tihs same color, classified as Czech.
  40. I had a hunch you'd go for it! But you have all the small ones . . . . .
  41. I have vases with the same mark, but spelled with a v not a w. Both decors are tipically Bohemian.
  42. Sean, that was such a long time ago . . . . Age is merciless.
  43. Bingo. It is him, 13 years old at the time. His family includes a former governor and a great woman writer.
  44. Do I dare say Ruckl? Check out my Ruckl postings of lamp shades.
  45. I did not know one could post one's own photos! I love buildings, statues and particularly, cemeteries. I'll try posting some.
  46. That's another name I can never spell! Thanks for the correction.
  47. As usual, they look much better as a group than individually. The color stands out.
  48. So glad you got it!
  49. They really come into their own when lit. But now I reall DO NOT have more space for shades or lamps.
  50. What leads you to a British provenance?
