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 have 3 pieces with this ribbing and medallion/flower. The basket which Peggy mentioned, a blue handled vase and a plain yellow without spatter. I will try to post the others.
  2. Your collection rocks, if you'll pardon the pun: intended.
  3. As I look at the colour now, and seeing some more Welz tango rims, I am not too sure of my post of seven months ago!
  4. The two "friends" have to be Kralik, right? I am seeing too many similarities with my ones with clear leaves around the middle.
  5. The small one at front with "nipples" is found in a completely mould-blown form with the tadpoles enamelled, and one where the tadpoles and nipples are applied to the surface.
  6. This one is something else! Wonderful day shopping!
  7. Love the JIP shape.
  8. I love these deep necks - they seem a recurring feature in Welz but, I am sure, elsewhere.
  9. I think this is Art Nouveau but with the repeating design, I am not too sure. Fish's looks very Deco. The Japanese influence on design in the 1890-1920 period I find very confusing. I am with Nouve...
  10. Have you seen "Acorn Antiques"? If not, have a look on YouTube! More of Smaug's hoard but fewer treasures!
  11. Fish, yours is so cool, but here's a smaller cousin: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/157869-pattern-link-to-fishiowas-biscuit-barre
  12. I love your stuff too, Rose, and you are sparkly!
  13. My bad *wince* I have just seen Peggy's post about 3 days earlier than mine! Well, they are slightly different!
  14. I didn't see this Peggy before posting mine :-)
  15. No several more under "jardiniere", I think.
  16. More pics - very nice!
  17. It looks like really good quality modern Czech but someone else on here will know more for sure.
  18. Haha! Let my comment re Kralik and frog legs stand but let me stand corrected! :-)
  19. Lisa: I cannot disagree that this point must be considered but I wouldn't have posted them together if I didn't think there could be a link. The casing is the same on all 3 as well as the deformation...
  20. When it comes to it, I like so many, am not emotionally tied to this whole Welz debate. I see Craig's comments (read Welzebub) and posts and can see a coherence, whereas in other posts and comments I...
  21. Of course not, otherwise I would post it here, but I don't think labels are a better guide than sound judgement and reserved thought.
  22. I see the label is in the link - great to see.
  23. I would love to see the label, unless it is posted somewhere else on here. I must say I am having trouble linking the two decors here - are they the same?
  24. I think we all agree that the "frog leg" thorn vases are Kralik atm. I think the yellow and green above are difficult to place, without the spatter in the middle, which is Welz-y, unless any better d...
  25. Al got there first on the red one but thanks.
  26. Ask 20th Century Glass - he may be able to help.
  27. Huge LOVE from the UK!
  28. A-maz-ing group!
  29. Another @jealous@ love from the UK!
  30. Love from the South Coast of the UK!
  31. Beautiful and belongs in Bohemian glass we all agree anyway!
  32. I do like these two. I am going to post an interesting spatter thorn too which, although a different shape, looks, dare I say it, a bit Welzy.
  33. :-) Thanks for the help.
  34. Are we going to say 1920s Art Nouveau inspired, then? Many firms made even popular late Victorian lines into the 1920s, so this doesn't trouble me!
  35. Nice bowl.
  36. Yes there are lines and spots in enamel which mimic the lines of cut glass on a tango glass colour and remind me of lens cutting.
  37. I am afraid only a passing resemblance - but intriguing!
  38. If you look at pic 12 in the gallery above, I am sure the perfume set on the far right bears a passing resemblance to the yellow one in your first pic.
  39. I am pretty sure Kralik - I think the aventurine in Rindskopf pieces is pulled into feathers.
  40. It can be difficult comparing different angles (and a good photographer helps - I know!).
  41. Actually, maybe the 3rd vase in Pic 1 is mirrored in the Palda catalogue page in the link - look top row, far right, although lacking the blue.
  42. Put me on the subscription list! :-)
  43. I will post a pic of my aventurine one - it tapers perhaps more than yours.
  44. The middle one in pic 1 is the same shape as a Kralik aventurine piece I have. Mine is 18.5cm high x 8cm base x 4.5cm across the rim. The enamelled yellow one looks a bit Palda-y although I can't ...
  45. Haha! Thanks, Anne.
  46. That's n=4 then!
  47. Thanks, Al, and everyone else.
  48. Thanks from the optimistic comment, Welzebub, from another beginner! :-)
  49. Thanks, Peggy, any tips for the rust?
  50. Looks like Palda. There is a black and white photo on p 100 of the first Truitt book.
