  1. I am not sure where the idea that this comes from walmart is. I don't think it did. but no claims were made in the listing either way that I could see. I think it is very likely that this IS deco...
  2. so having seen the original listing I'm confused by the photo you list as having been altered.. that photo wasn't present? who darkened it and where did you get it from? and why to the other photos lo...
  3. and that molded base doesn't mean modern. I have some deffo old pieces with bases that look like that. they aren't the highest quality things in the world but they're not modern.
  4. What would this be a reproduction of? this may very well be older. it may be newer. it's too generic to say IMHO. but no one would reproduce something as basic as iridescent glass with no other attri...
  5. I don't think its' non uniform in color. I think the lighting is non uniform.
  6. second vote for Heckert.
  7. Steuben also made this shape. dunno if they had the lid but that basic shape with the m handles..
  8. what are the numbers?
  9. a number of the shapes shown in the black glass kralik display are harrach. There were even a few displayed in the very very tiny museum in the villa of the Harrach family.
  10. they usually have super stylized upper case letters like text book stuff but not always. I have a few that are pretty sloppy looking. I guess I do have a couple perfumes that have a letter.number...
  11. yup, I am very familiar with Both Harrach and Riedel styles of marking. the examples Brian has on his site are only a small sample of the way Harrach marked their glass. They used a wide variety of ma...
  12. For me one of the Hallmarks of Riedel is a the \ in teh number vs letter. harrach always used a dot. Riedel used a slash
  13. This is my R piece (the one I can find anyway. I have another somewhere that has a marking that looks like this one but I can't find it) http://www.thegildedcurio.com/item-Harrach-163.html
  14. ah Warren's is the exact same design with the same design number and the rest of his is marked in a way Riedel never marked. I think that cements it IMHO.
  15. I also have a harrach R marked vase. the style of enamel is typical of Harrach not Riedel and the quality is more of Harrach not Riedel. I think it's Harrach.
  16. yup, I agree with all this.
  17. I don't remember who got one of these first, me or Warren but I do remember that it was in a few months of each other.. I haven't seen another since. Mine isn't meaningfully marked. it's just thru de...
  18. on derp de derp. he deleted it. does anyone have the photo? I'd love to see it.
  19. is it possible to link to Kyle's piece? I don't think I ever saw it?
  20. it's in great condition too. the gilding looks perfect! the basic design element is like jodhpur but iridescent and enameled isn't shown as jodphur. I always kind of thought it was only referring to t...
  21. in order to have documented shapes from Loetz from the earliest periods we are going to have to wait for the new book.
  22. this stylistically would be from the late 1880's early 1890's.. not earlier.
  23. hmm i'm not sure that worked. https://sites.google.com/site/bohemianglassandmore/harrach if it didn't scroll about half way down the page. they are uranium with a persian styled top.
  24. https://a316bc28-a-62cb3a1a-s-sites.googlegroups.com/site/bohemianglassandmore/harrach/Pair_Harrach_enameled_vases.jpg?attachauth=ANoY7cqJAJD9m_XmXD5SJw9N-hWBRt2W6ZYgWjayXAgcb-qnKQTF2QH8vEss0O7afX-V3d...
  25. that is a classic harrach shape.
  26. Standard format would be letter. number (in partial form) or xxxx/xxx (give or take a number or two) and in full form it would be number. (sometimes) xxxx/xxx letter.xxx prope...
  27. I keep saying Harrach but it might not be Harrach either. It's not a standard format for harrach. It's closer to Harrach in format than loetz and We know Harrach wrote all kinds combinations on the ba...
  28. http://www.thegildedcurio.com/images-large/276-b.JPG http://www.thegildedcurio.com/images-large/447-c.JPG http://www.thegildedcurio.com/item-Loetz-273.html here are a few more
  29. http://www.thegildedcurio.com/images-large/934-c.JPG this is what they look like on loetz pieces. I can't recall another one having a big number off to the side like this one has, it's just the rom...
  30. If it's an I or a 1 the way in which it is written is just not the way Loetz wrote it on the bases of their pieces. They used roman numerals. that is not a roman numeral. Harrach used both letters an...
  31. Mac the answer is out there. It just will take time and research. I'd want another shape (identical) with a decor that is either definitely Loetz or Harrach or Riedel to get an absolute ID on somethin...
  32. Brian's right though, Riedel also signed in a similar manner to this now that I think about it. These are Harrach or Riedel and are signed in a similar manner to this but wiht a B instead of an i ...
  33. it's from the UPM in Prague. I am saying that the Harrach work is very similar to early loetz work.. and this piece has more in common with Harrach than Loetz from where I am standing. It *could* ...
  34. Here's an example Loetz: https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/OTAcJwei-GiriH6I_rpmRfiepaC6HmOqHRqF2S98L-U?feat=directlink harrach: http://www.thegildedcurio.com/item-Harrach-394.html http://w...
  35. as a clarification, I do think all the pieces in their alpenrot section are indeed loetz.. I just don't think they're all alpenrot.
  36. I sure haven't been offended by anything you've said Mac... what loetz.com is calling alpenrot Is not correct. the ones they are calling a heliotrope are the ones that have been classically called...
  37. http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-WEBB-VASE-/261277853020?nma=true&si=u6Q0BuYtnpdbMnj%252F3FuLAdlAN9c%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 This piece is also very similar to the octopus s...
  38. There are a few shapes in the Victorian era between Loetz and Harrach that are astonishingly similar.
  39. Brian, I've seen em in Red and black too (Enamel on the dek numbers and they're definitely Loetz) Mac, the Roman numeral is the Key dek pattern indicator and yours doesn't have that. it's a 1.
  40. yup totally agree with all that (but I don't think the coloring of enamel means much either way with the loetz pieces. I think it was probably whatever was on hand)
  41. Or some other similar manufacture or decorator to Harrach.. other than Loetz.
  42. that said, Off hand I don't recognize that decor for Harrach right off.. but on the other hand, much like Webb got a reputation for the butterfly.. Harrach often did the butterfly.. Loetz... honestly ...
  43. That's not a proper I... it could also be Harrach with that format. Harrach did do an M Crimp. It MIGHT be loetz but with the other number present and the 1 instead of proper I.. It's not out of the r...
  44. I think some records are just missing.. it's not a complete thing when a decor is listed. it could have been made in other decors but the documentation is just gone..
  45. did you enlarge the pic of the base? if you do you can see the writing pretty well. I cropped it in picasa and Pretty sure you can make out an F.. not sure about the H.
  46. Brian, if you search ebay for heckert and tumbler there is at least one like this with a rough pontil and signed (And this one does look like it's probably signed by heckert I think I can see it.) We ...
  47. There is no Webb possibility. This is without a shadow of a doubt, harrach.
  48. Deb, that is my photo you've linked to. I took that picture. I took that picture on the sly as well. it is NOT allowed to be posted in public. I do not appreciate my photos being used without my perm...
  49. the example you posted looks much later than the others. it's a bright orange not a muted color and the stripes look different, wider and cruder than the others. I don't think it's that comparable. s...
  50. I always thought it was selenium that caused the red.
