Bohemian glass 1890-1940+ especially multi-coloured tango, bottom-up spatters, yellow gilded or enamelled things, things with silver rims and thorn vases. Not to meBohemian glass 1890-1940+ especially multi-coloured tango, bottom-up spatters, yellow gilded or enamelled things, things with silver rims and thorn vases. Not to mention post-war Chribska. And that is just at the moment. Most of my favourites are (relatively) mass-produced survivors meant for use. I am learning - and, I hope, developing - all the time. I am a professional man living and working on Britain's south coast. (Read more)

  1. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/194821-butler-bros-conundrum-and-more-questions
  2. The top right has a similar shape with applied leaves. The group has never been identified 100% but the jug looks incredibly similar to a known Kralik décor. The applied flowers also made people thi...
  3. Definitely Czech Art Deco but maker not known at the moment. I love these as well.
  4. Love it, Peggy, and jealous, as ever! It looks like it may have had a lid.
  5. The "blush" around the edges of some of the confetti does look very Welz-y to me. That and the acid blue, orange and yellow.
  6. You have made quite a nice grouping there, Peggy, which does seem to link all 4. I love it.
  7. I don't think these need frogs. Smaller vases yes but not this.
  8. If it had a longer neck, it would be huge!
  9. Thanks for the love and comment! I was in some doubt as a beginner in buying this!
  10. Will do. Thanks for the comments.
  11. I have posted a solifleur with a very similar finish which interested me. I will try to find the link.
  12. I agree - almost to the point of being different.
  13. You could search on here under canes, caned, millefiori, Iris - some of the collectors have lots more special ones. Look on www.kralik.com for lots of examples under ball vases, Deco shapes and mille...
  14. Heaven. I think you have shown us the tip of the iceberg!
  15. Yes, the flower glows bright under uv but the trails don't.
  16. As we don't have a summer as such in the UK, it might have to remain more of an idea!
  17. Thanks, Peggy.
  18. At least we can all agree on the catch-all Czech Art Deco. I have heard a local call this interwar period the First Republic. I don't know how historically accurate that description is, but it sets ...
  19. I thought it was unusual for it to be on clear and so chock full of applied glass.
  20. Thanks, Craig, I think so too.
  21. I can't find any similar shape but find that strong foot very reminiscent of Kralik and Ruckl.
  22. I would go with Craig - I find the Heckert/Poschinger/PK axis very hard to navigate!
  23. Looks like Kralik to me.
  24. Cheers. I learnt a lot here and through Glass Messages.
  25. Not sure about this one: the gold in aquagold is very gold and the swirls wider and more iridescent. However, there are people with 10x my experience, so get the consensus again!
  26. I would say Kralik streifen und flecken as well - but get a consensus as I can be wrong!
  27. Love them!
  28. Here is mine: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/155204-kralik-urn
  29. Nice shape.
  30. Thanks. Of course, I can only point to similarities with the enamelling on Peggy's vase, nothing more. I cannot tire of these little yellow granny vases!
  31. Don't want to sound disputatious, but always thought these grey-blue trails Kralik? I don't know enough about the shape links to be 100% sure.
  32. I think these are all difficult. Anyone else's thoughts much appreciated.
  33. D'Aurys was a marque used by Kralik on cameo and some iridescent ware.
  34. Whoop! What a group.
  35. Lovely!
  36. You are right about caveat emptor with these - the moulds have been used to make modern reproductions. However, they are the original moulds, so, at the right price... There are ways to spot the ori...
  37. Nice. There is a great Sklo union website if you google.
  38. I have some like this. They are Czech but the jury is out as to maker at the moment!
  39. My mistake. Silveria it is.
  40. Silberia?!? Lovely.
  41. I would be interested to know the result btw.
  42. I have used an industry solvent (Stripit) to good effect on stubborn household paint, bad nicotine staining and just bad grime when cleaning some pretty delicate items. I usually test it on a corner ...
  43. I agree with DL for David Loebl. Looks exactly right. Their archives are in Goldsmiths Hall in London: a seam to tap in the future!
  44. This is super. Is it a reblown soft crackle?
  45. Are we thinking Kralik or Welz on this? I think the former, although we could say that also many unidentified producers could be in the frame???
  46. Thanks, I don't think this one has ever been caged as such as I would have expected that would be difficult if not impossible to remove, but it might lend itself to that. There are no traces left. I...
  47. Thanks, all.
  48. You are getting some nice stuff up there! :-)
  49. I can't say. There is a lot of variation in definition in my martelé and in my honeycomb panel vases. So much so that definition can be almost entirely lost. So I would assume many of those moulds ...
  50. But, then, Welz had some knuckled shapes and maybe more akin to this. Some of their footed compotes are not a million miles from this.
