  1. I HAVE TWO IN THIS DECOR AND SEVERAL EXAMPLES FROM ON INTERNET, SAME SHAPE, DIFFERENT DECORS. . DEFINITELY KRALIK.
  2. Mitko, send me a picture of your pink at alfavil@aol.com
  3. POSTCARD COLLECTOR: ON TARGET!
  4. Unless you can prove me wrong. In this case, since Roessler deniers can tell me that it is not Roessler but Legras, I challenge you to show me WHAT ROESSLER IS AS OPPOSED TO LEGRAS. As to comments ...
  5. NOTICE: DO NOT BOTHER TO POST NEGATIVE COMMENTS.
  6. THANKS MARIKA. YOU MAY GET IN TROUBLE!
  7. Awesome. A pity the pics are sideways.
  8. OZON MIT DIANA IS NOT THIS COLOR! I HAVE FINALLY FOUND ONE.
  9. Absolutely Rindskopf!
  10. I expected pundits to question it. Particularly those associated with loetz.com.
  11. Not really. These piece have a highly "manufactured" quality--they tend, I'd say, towards abstraction (looking more like little cabbages than flowers). The shades tend to be fat more "naturalistic"....
  12. I just got it--I had not bought it before). It is identical to the pink but two inches shorter. Thanks to IMASapp for his invaluable help. Now it remains to question the source . . .
  13. What is a taxi set? I just got them today (Jan. 15) because they were coming from Canada. They do match the other two, and look like water or red wine goblets.
  14. IT'S A KRALIK. IN FACT, I TOOK THE STAND AND FITTED IT WITH A LOETZ SCHAUM!
  15. Funny, I also love orange! And burn orange, electric orange, cinnamon reds, pinks . . .
  16. To Glassie: Yes, I do. 606 (1900); 346-344 (1898)
  17. Dave, I'm checking. I really did not notice. I'm checking right now. What luck!
  18. I will not rest until I find a green!
  19. I have several 12" vases in that shape. I too have collected Rindskopf for years . .
  20. It arrived yesterday. It's even more beautiful than I imagined!
  21. Three balled vases were being made by Harrachov since the middle of the 19th Century. I have several examples.
  22. I know who she is: Elizabeth Siddall, Rossetti's muse. She posed for most of the Pre-Raphaelites. Look at his "Summer" or "Ophelia"
  23. Kiddo, write me and I'll show you what i have in the Ruckl folder.
  24. My favorite shape! I have them in 12" and 8". Classified as British in may books, but DEFINITELY NOT WELZ!
  25. HOLY COW. TALK TO ME ON THIS ONE. ONE SIMILAR TO IT WAS STOLEN FROM ME MANY YEARS AGO!
  26. IHAVE 10 OF THEM ON THE TOP SHELF OF MY WINDOW. MY FAVORITES: THE "FROG LEGS".
  27. Thank you all who have bothered to look.
  28. Gorgeous. i have in "watermelon" cisele.
  29. For real. Even Andy praised it!
  30. i WANT ONE!
  31. Alan, I'd need a picture!
  32. And now I HAVE definitive proof. The Kralik boondoggle is just another example of how the fickle (and ignorant) market swerves anytime anyone makes an unfounded claim.
  33. Anne, these were being imported into the USA already in 1906, and I have found them sold with chandeliers by several American manufacturers.
  34. Gillian, they look stunning! I'll try to post on them when they are lit.
  35. I have the taller version--sold to me as Loetz though I knew what it was!
  36. I'd say: simple. Not cotton candy Loetz.
  37. THANKS TO ALL! NOW I FEEL WE ARE GETTING SOMEWHERE BY SHOWING THE BEAUTY OF IMPERIAL ART GLASS!
  38. MOTHER USED: BLUE CURAZAO; MINT, PARFAIT AMOUR (A VIOLET COLOR FROM BOLS) AND LEMON LIQUEUR (ALSO BOLS). ME, I USED WHATEVER WE HAD AT HAND, INCLUDING MELON, NOT MINT.
  39. NEW PICS!!!!
  40. Put it in storage. better than money in the bank!
  41. Absolutely stunning. My birthday stone!
  42. I really do not much about Chinese; I used to collect Japanese prints, but I love all of their art. My favorite rooms at the Met Museum are precisely the Japanese and Chinese galleries!
  43. I've missed the Glatt something like three times. That's the reason i did not think twice!
  44. Oh boy, I did trace the French version and found why my mother had it. It was marketed by Bols, the liqueur makers! By the way, Verretcheque. I got it! It was the only one with a complete set of st...
  45. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH! AS I SAID, THIS DECANTER WAS BOUGHT IN CARACAS IN THE EARLY 50'S. I'AM AFTER THE FRENCH VERSION!
  46. I too spotted the Harrach and was utterly flabbergasted. what is the world coming to?
  47. Awesome color. I'd say Wresniak.. By the way, its Krasno.
  48. mY SAD EXPERIENCE WITH ITTALA IS THAT THEIR GLASSES BREAK IF A PIN FALLS IN AN ADJOINING ROOM.
  49. De acuerdo: perfection is boring.
  50. I saved you . . . . Aren't you going to Tokyo? I wonder what the Japanese eat besides sushi and tempura! And I clarify. I only bid once . . .
  51. See more
