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. Nice find.
  2. Love them.
  3. Hey! I tried not to show the broken one!
  4. Not everyone's cup of tea but I could look at these all day long!
  5. I think Czech - those crimps have to match someone else's!
  6. Wow! And my admiration as well!
  7. It's not exactly uv-reactive but it does light up a bit under black light.
  8. Yes, Phil, a single layer of clear and no casing glass.
  9. I agree with Scott that these are - for me - more likely Bohemian than English. Some are very, very difficult to tell apart not least as there was the same copying that went on between Czech or Bohem...
  10. I find these hard to ascribe but I haven't the wealth of knowledge of others.
  11. I think undoubtedly Kralik btw.
  12. Oh wow!
  13. I don't know, Racer, but if I had to hazard a guess, I would say commoner over here than in the US. Craig or Al might know.
  14. Love! What a great pair!
  15. You got it!
  16. If everything were marked, including in the UK, that would be a boon.
  17. This is the uncertainty of Butler Bros and Czech Art Deco glass in a nutshell! I am intrigued by all the links like you.
  18. I see what you mean about the similarity but I don't think it's enough to give a maker: there are also differences. It does appear next to a fan vase in each case but not in the same grouping.
  19. Yes, it did, Phil, but, taking a risk, the damage was minuscule.
  20. Several others are going Scailmont as well. So I will add it to my pile of nearly-Czech!
  21. The shape is vaguely reminiscent of a Kralik eggshell shape although the glass is less fine: the foot is hollow as per the eggshell I have.
  22. You know, I have a couple of Italian, French and Belgian creep-ins to my collection, so although we think these are Kralik at the mo, it wouldn't make them any less nice if they were Danish. In fact,...
  23. As for the cinqfoil detail to the handles, this might link with others. A very nice Kralik décor.
  24. I agree with Al but the mirrored iridescence and canes/millefiori are Kralik. In plainer colours, ID is hard, as for much Art Deco and tango production.
  25. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/200318-ruckl-pricelist-catalogue-page-from-da
  26. Reminds of an iridescent décor posted on this forum twice before.
  27. Ruckl had condiment and toilet sets with similar finials, but so did Harrachov and I am sure others!
  28. Very nice. Maker: not sure!
  29. Love it but darned hard to photograph!
  30. I can see what you mean, Mac, but I see no iridescent versions, just plain and cased glass. Interesting colours but no iridescence?
  31. Not quite 150 but maybe 20! I got other things to collect too, Jericho'. :-)
  32. Thanks both for the inputs: some American glass makes it over here. And Australian! Presumably brought back by maddoes like all of us! I don't discount it, but would agree with Peggy, instincts are...
  33. Thanks, Mac.
  34. Thanks, Mac, so US?
  35. I defer to Craig on my these matters obvs. :-)
  36. This sits with the Ceska Lipa work in the Tango exhibitions, I think, where some of mine are placed including a squat vase in this décor with wrapped handles. Jitka Lnenickova is the authority on t...
  37. Ooh. Difficult one! The best thing would be to find a similarly shaped bowl in a more recognisable décor and put them together... But it has the right feel. And definitely Czech tango!
  38. A wonderful and unsurpassed collection. Great privilege to see it here.
  39. Nice one!
  40. Peggy and I would agree that lots of companies - mainly Czech - used this style of foot. Mix ups between lots of companies and Stevens/Williams seem to occur frequently.
  41. Thanks both.
  42. Is this going to be hard to ID other than as Haida/Novy Bor? Late Victorian?
  43. If they were Welz, it would be both a new shape and décor so that would be treading on dangerous ground! Has to be unknown at the mo (like 95% of my collection).
  44. Yes, Dave, Stevens & Williams have been ascribed as makers (erroneously) of a lot of Czech glass, most notably "honeycomb" patterned glass produced by Franz Welz and possibly others. These are 100%...
  45. That's a real possibility. Very interesting.
  46. Czech was as far as I had got!
  47. Unfortunately, the webmaster is much better on British, Scandinavian and Italian and not so hot on Czech (I am sure he wouldn't mind me saying) also, to add, much of this tango glass is very hard to p...
  48. Thanks, Dave, that website is super cool isn't it?
  49. I am not sure about age and whether this is a historismus gothic revival piece or much older (or, indeed newer)? The enamel is very vibrant and the decoration semi-heraldic. The animals seem deer. ...
  50. The vase there is cream with amethyst confetti.
