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 wouldn't want to try anyhow! Thanks for the comments and info.
  2. Arched Kralik mark?
  3. Great! Love it.
  4. I am not sure. I am certain all metal, precious or otherwise, would have been at a premium in 1918, assuming the rim is contemporaneous.
  5. Thanks for the comment. Maybe the shape was informed by bulb-forcing?
  6. Thanks.
  7. Haha - you're a mind reader! Yes. May be on here in a few days!
  8. Could I ask the diameter of the stand at top and/or the fitting at the base of the bowl for insertion into the stand? I only ask as I am waiting for a stepped bowl which I think is Welz with exactly ...
  9. In one of the two Truitt books there is an interesting chart of export figures for Czech glass around the world by region and period. It makes interesting reading and just shows there is a lot out th...
  10. Thanks, Anne. My email is joscyn@hotmail.com.
  11. They seem a bit big for what I know of larger Welz shapes. They seem to fit in with a series of large columnar hyacinth vases I have posted in blue and white, yellow and white. That's why I said my ...
  12. In the example I saw, some of the thick prunts had diamond or square impressions, which added to the optical effect.
  13. Haha, just re-reading that, I know it's amber. :-)
  14. Chribska did a similar colour with large prunts but not the same optical effect. Maybe in one of their catalogues online? The example I saw is a bottle dated 1964.
  15. Nice example.
  16. Great piece.
  17. Some great glass there.
  18. Loving it, Anne. A nice display.
  19. I like this decor and have an unmarked piece very like your footed urns.
  20. I have seen this sort of basket- weave wire metalwork on lesser pieces as well so assume that - like enamelling - perhaps blanks were bought by a company for mounting in this way? Mine certainly aren...
  21. Good points. I agree.
  22. If we were being purist we would call all these decors brokované, but we don't as that doesn't quite make it in our language so we call them spatters.
  23. I like all those suggestions, and your point is well made. I don't have so much of a problem "bending" terms like pointillist if that conveys my feeling about a decor but that's just personal. I sti...
  24. Thanks, Jags, the more beehive-y one has light mould marks on the sides, if this is the one you mean. It has nice pinks in the base as well.
  25. Thanks for the comment. All these décors with murrine (canes) are under the heading millefiori but I completely take your point. The Deco use of murrine leads to the impression of flowers if you squ...
  26. Thanks, Michelle.
  27. Thanks, Michelle.
  28. Butler Brothers (West Virginia #121) on pages 15, 18, 21 and 24 there is a similar shape vase to the blue pair next to a Welz fan. It comes in mottled blue, amongst other (presumed spatter) colours. ...
  29. It is a case of best guess=Welz.
  30. Thanks for the comment, Craig. I would love to see the uranium version. Haha! I live in hope of the definitive ID on all of them but, as you infer, it is more enthusiastic optimism than reality...
  31. Haha! Thanks for the comment - much appreciated. There is a bit of detective in all of us and maybe this is my chosen specialist subject. Maybe it will become clearer with time. Then again, maybe ...
  32. Good point - what I mean above, is that there are no definite 1920-1935 Czech clear bottom-up spatters in the style above that I have seen. There are plenty of modern ones, and, no, I would not advis...
  33. Definitely leaning heavily towards Welz to the exclusion of all others at the moment on this décor. You are right, it is the same as a couple of my posts.
  34. Lovely.
  35. Pie crust?
  36. I am interested in what the Ruckl lampshades in either this or the first volume could point concerning my unknown spatters. They are much better drawings than the more widely-used decor line drawings.
  37. Great photos.
  38. I see what you mean, Peggy, but I am not sure. I have learnt that Tango and spatters are very difficult - just look at some of Jericho's posts comparing Welz and Kralik, for example.
  39. Or waiting for Jitka to write a book?
  40. Yes, the bits of spatter, whether flakes or whatever, have, in part, especially at the base, a sort of cut-out appearance. I don't know whether there could be a stage between a powder and spatter déc...
  41. I have one as well and thought it Chribska but not too sure now I think about it.
  42. Light is failing - I will post tomorrow otherwise my photos will be worse than usual.
  43. Thanks.
  44. :-) Haha - thanks.
  45. The feet are somewhat different - I'll post those as well.
  46. I will post the bases to you. They are a little different. The two-hole shows signs of being held at the base by a rod but the three-hole doesn't (presumably some sort of tool that doesn't leave a m...
  47. The crazing or maze looks interesting - you must ask Craig if it links with his Welz maze post.
  48. The several pages of lamps in the Truitt book also seem very useful for attribution, although, I suppose the problem would be extrapolating from a lamp shape to a vase shape for many of the spatters, ...
  49. The shapes seem pretty individual?
  50. Thank you for another great post. Do you think anyone has identified any of the shapes in the line drawings? From what you write, it sounds not, although I think there is more tango documentation wi...
