Brighton, UK

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. I think this is the sort of thing that I would have bought a couple of years ago. The good thing about everything that passes through your hands is that it has its own beauty and that it helps you le...
  2. Loving the pink!
  3. I think we do overlap a lot in our tastes, Peggy! We probably reflect quite well what is available in the UK for Czech Art Deco.
  4. Thanks, Craig!
  5. I would call them a true pair. Who wants two exactly the same or in mirror image anyway?
  6. Haha. My bad!
  7. Good comments - I have been drawn to something recently only to find a "Made in Mexico" label on it. Care and developing an eye are what I would add to Ann's comment.
  8. That is to say, apart from the unusual tri-lobed heart shape itself.
  9. I will try to keep afoot of the discussion - all information or comment welcome. Ian
  10. Here are links to my two postings on this topic: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/145254-kralik-millefiore-vase-and-bowl--i-thin http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/127686-tango-bowl-...
  11. I have put down one as Kralik, but will keep afoot of discussion here re ID.

  13. Inky has one exactly the same and I have posted a few. The rims, where not collared, are highly polished, somewhat out of keeping with Kralik as a maker, I think.
  14. I *love* this pattern. I think it is very redolent of a broken spider web and you will find (at least) one part on the body - for example on pic 2 - where the 5-6 spokes radiate out from the "centre"...
  15. I like the comparisons - look through my posts for the millefiori bowl and a matching vase. I will try to post links here.
  16. Love it - someone cleverer will know the ID! I would bet Kralik, but over to one of the luminaries!
  17. I love this shape. To me I would immediately say Loetz but I don't have the catalogue and PN knowledge of anyone on here.
  18. I revise the ID to Kralik in light of my later post of a similar decor on a vase. Kevin, I think complex ruffle shapes were crimped using special moulds - think those "snowflake" rims, highly ruffled...
  19. I tried it with my last thorn vase post, and it worked, but wasn't so impressed as that is much shorter albeit higgeldy-piggeldy - I think there is something in it for these items but only have an "n"...
  20. With everything else cleared outa the way!
  21. Wonderful!
  22. Keep these coming - loving the image comparisons and all this is helpful.
  23. Thanks, Craig. And thanks all.
  24. Lovely group, Peggy!
  25. There is what looks like a Kralik lines and spatter vase at the back of (3) which rather goes with what Kevin (Vetraio) states about attribution.
  26. Another interesting shape comparison - you have me convinced that they are all by the same maker.
  27. Love the comparison pieces. You know, I doubt it will be an easy road, but there is a lot of mileage in collecting shapes together. Every similar comparison is another piece in the jigsaw!
  28. I want to say Kralik, but there are many more expert in here. There is a similarly pink posted as Pallme Konig but corrected to Kralik,
  29. The copperplate "r" is in reverse and very hard for a modern hand.
  30. The "o" is not open and the "r" is poorly formed but I am neither a glass nor a handwriting expert! In experience on here, even if a fake signature, it is a quality piece.
  31. I get confused posting my Ruckl trophy and large Kralik JIP!
  32. Although the twist is a bit Welz-y.
  33. I go with Ruckl for your (4) and my recent.
  34. I like the shape of (3) as well. Pretty unusual.
  35. I like number 4 - it looks like my recently posted pair with an amethyst spatter. The only problem with this décor is that Kralik did a pretty convincing compadre in a JIP - or was that Ruckl copying...
  36. But I don't know - just speaking from the gut again.
  37. What a wonderful piece! Do you think that the signature is real? It looks a bit amateurish next to the decoration?
  38. They are dark blue, but appear greeny against the yellow. It's shape, size and make up matches my others.
  39. Wonderful - what a lovely on the top shelf!
  40. Thanks, Kivatinitz.
  41. Love 'em both. I might as well just "love" your whole collection now and get it over with! :-)
  42. Welzy rim to that.
  43. As I look at it more, it could be 1912, which would be astounding.
  44. I got a lot of information from on here where there are a few posts with multiple different décors.
  45. Peggy, you are right about the feeling of secret vice but the techniques and styles often hark back to earlier production even if very tangentially. So you might be surprised who shares your secret v...
  46. Love these mid-century designs harking back to cut glass.
  47. Anonyme?!
  48. This is a Glassexport label from the 1950s-70s or later and probably made by one of Borské Sklo in Novy Bor.
  49. http://loetz.com/decors-a-z/unknown/unknown/unknown-1 Thanks for the link and information. :-)
  50. I don't think I'll get the bug though - not Daddy Warbucks!
