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. Keep in touch - joscyn@hotmail.com. Ian
  2. Great group.
  3. We have sunlight in the UK for the next 8-12 weeks!
  4. That's a nice find, Peggy!
  5. The vase is a bit heavier on the darker colours, like my basket.
  6. Thanks. I sometimes negativise or invert the image of these and they can then magically appear - or not sometimes! Thanks for posting the marks. Others are so much more expert in these but I am int...
  7. I agree.
  8. Would be great to see the square mark, Anne. You have a fan here.
  9. Forget Powolny as this is misinformation as is Loetz.
  10. Thanks for the comment on mine. They are alike and date 1925-1935, I think.
  11. If it turns out to be a vibropen tool then most of us would likely have it settled as a modern embellishment. Comparisons of these are on most of the Loetz sites,
  12. It looks a bit sloppy... When things were signed eg by Loetz with a wheel tool - which this seems to be although I am not sure, you get a very clear fluid signature like the person had been doing it f...
  13. Thanks for the question.
  14. Murrine, canes or millefiori. The 3 terms are interchangeable to me but some people have preferred to reserve millefiori for when there are what looks like a thousand in the glass, as in some paperwe...
  15. Peggy and I have a few near matches from the UK.
  16. Great Mother's Day present! The base reminds me of a European award like the UK Order of the Garter.
  17. It would be great to have a really good close up of the signature so we can see what sort of tool made it. I don't know what the others would say, but it would seem strange for Kralik to have marked ...
  18. Love this and we don't seem to see all that much in the UK - conservative tastes? Our own glass industry? I don't know: we seem to have all the Victorian stuff and you guys all the Art Deco stuff!
  19. Too cute!
  20. Amazing and inspirational as ever.
  21. Some close ups on each one with the base would be great!
  22. Great! Love it.
  23. Something to do with "twerking" or t'working as they call it in Yorkshire?
  24. ?????? :-)
  25. Great link - a ciselé base and similar base metal mount. Exactly the same shape and size. Thanks.
  26. You're right - comparable but there is something more defined about yours.
  27. I agree - ID Welz.
  28. The difference between this and mine is the sharpness of the line between the body and the foot with its hoops. I love it though and they might be by the same manufacturer.
  29. Is OMG enough?
  30. We need a book or subscription web resource from Jitka.
  31. I agree regarding the vast majority of enamelled tango ware as well - although I have found one or two that were interesting or unusual enough to pique my interest. I much prefer the uncomplicated lo...
  32. Woop! Another beaut!
  33. I lump all mine together in the Ruckl box but one has to be open to other possibilities as well. I am just getting all mine together at the moment.
  34. This is just too, too nice!
  35. Thanks, Rose! Can you really have too many? ;-)
  36. A beaut. But is it satin? :-)
  37. I like the blue aventurine pampas.
  38. Wow! Amazingly rare.
  39. Anne, I think EVERYONE has at least one basket, but you're right: not "in" and I like the idea of a neglected corner: just think of all the other niches that people post, like cruets, lamps, shades, s...
  40. Thanks for all the comments.
  41. So it's got to be Kralik, right?
  42. Thanks, Peggy, I thought you might like this one. I think you have posted a similarly swirled Welz vase - you are right that this doesn't have spots in the crimp... Unknown but with interesting coro...
  43. Thanks for your comment, Anne: I agree with your comment about size but I had to point out the discrepancy in size and colours between mine and the printed ad. Too alike not to mention, though.
  44. Are they quail?
  45. Sorry, Phil. ;-)
  46. This shape appears in fig. 45, and the décor in fig. 34 of Craig's article in "All About Glass".
  47. Love it!
  48. The problem with labels and silver collars for that matter is that they can be removed. So in all my collared vase posts, I find reference to the date essential, but not irrefutable evidence of anyth...
  49. Thanks for the post.
  50. I think it may have been a lot taller at some point? Maybe 1/3 as much again? Someone else may know better.
