  1. Opal is my birthstone, my sister's and my partner's. We are all Libras!
  2. Oh boy do I have a collection of these! Fascinatingly, they were imported to America by the ton and used in Native American jewelry. They are indeed Czech glass. Do you like NYE leaf and flowers je...
  3. that's simply awesome! I stopped collecting Horner after at one point i was left with the enamel right on my hand. it had fallen out as if had peeled!
  4. For Albert: I not only saw it, it has already arrived. I am glad to report most of my pieces are represented; however, no inkwells, lamps or shades.143 pieces, out of which 31 did not sell.
  5. Alas, America is full of rip-off "collectibles", and this is one of the most common. "Limited edition" plates. I still have my original Fillmore East posters!
  6. Be still, my heart! I've been collecting Kralik fruits for years. This is the first time I see this combination!
  7. I have a Horner butterfly with a pinprick loss. Can it be repaired? i thought British enamel couldn't!
  8. And quite cloae to Schliersee, which is not Czech, but Bavarian/Bohemian. The grapes are apllied, and raised.
  9. Kralik, of course.
  10. Great job. Is this a book or an article. The only problem: no manufacturer, but in 1998 no one knew. Most of these have already been identified.
  11. Good grief! It took me quite a while to discover this one! Do you know that there are lamp shades that MATCH YOUR VASE?
  12. Exquisite. I have one which is more apple green, but with the same shading in pink, 10"
  13. did anyone spit into these? What a horrible name for these gorgeous vases! They might as well have called them chamber pots for babies!
  14. Andy Jelcic wrote me of the strong relationship between Poshinger and Kralik, and told me he had seen similar pieces in green.
  15. Beautiful color. I have a 12" in this shape but more mocha color, enameled.
  16. It certainly looks Moser! Do you have the Moser Book? I'll check.
  17. All I can say is Holy Cow! I only have one Glue-Chip!
  18. How strange. A 12.5" vase, no pontil? I doubt it's Loetz, but I might be wrong. Small ciseles were often blown from the top.
  19. This is Kralik for the British market. Thus, the hallmark.
  20. I turned 70 on the 16th; my teddy bear just turned 69 on the same day!
  21. I have a similar vase, shaped like an amphora and in a metal stand with dragonflies. Once I read somewhere it could be Poshinger, but have no real proof.
  22. Montevideo is another of my "homes away from home". I came back loaded with Reyles' first editions!
  23. I just got one of these. Yours is far closer to 711 than mine.
  24. Exquisite!
  25. Quite interesting. I have black pieces that are really purple, all of them from Kralik.
  26. Rindskopf it is.
  27. Awesome. i have it in another shape and another decor!
  28. Any documentation, or just hearsay?
  29. Holy cow! Thanks for explaining the technique!
  30. And I was right. The piece is marked Czecho/Slovakia on the metal part that holds the tumblers, but the tumblers themselves are American!
  31. Oh yes, the stoppers are all fitted to their particular bottles. But frequently one can find one that fits (albeit imperfectly) several bottles.
  32. sean, the opposite way. Find a whole set and do nt let it go.
  33. Top of the line Teplitz (probably PK). This is a treasure.
  34. This what I tell people to go for! We do not find them in the USA.
  35. Beware of "Welz". but it is simply gorgeous. You do well in collectig different shapes in the same decor. That's the way to go.
  36. And I think the purity of the design points to Harrachov.
  37. Warren, I think you have hit the nail on the head! It screams "Prohibition!"
  38. Sean, the way to go is to find a complete set from the start. Single pieces usually appear enameled. I have only bought one set here; all of the others come from Europe: the Netherlands and the UK,
  39. Thanks for plugging my article. I thought it was no longer available on the Net. That very vase appears in the PMC.
  40. And when I looked closely at the vase: it's a red Hecherty silberband! Kevin, you are an ace!
  41. Try finding one in white, no matter condition (meaning feet chips)
  42. I just love these small pieces!
  43. Probably Kralik,
  44. The shade is Czech Ruckl. The metal part is probably American. This is classically Deco (1920-30's)
  45. With a lot of pansy spreading. Is it clear glass or more like a Bronze silberiris?
  46. I have the taller, 12" version.
  47. Definitely Ruckl coral shimmy!
  48. He, he. I've have slowly come to the same conclusion! I love groupings. and is necessary to say it: many of the Loetz decors tend to obscure the purity of shape.
  49. You are going to be in shock. I have two Hansa PK inkwells. Both wells are totally punctured with little holes, and one came full of tiny green beads!
  50. They remind me of Steuben's Rosaline glass.
