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. 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.
  2. Thanks both.
  3. Is this going to be hard to ID other than as Haida/Novy Bor? Late Victorian?
  4. 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).
  5. 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%...
  6. That's a real possibility. Very interesting.
  7. Czech was as far as I had got!
  8. 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...
  9. Thanks, Dave, that website is super cool isn't it?
  10. 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. ...
  11. The vase there is cream with amethyst confetti.
  12. Here is one link from the frankly wonderful website of Miroslav Becka http://www.miloslavbecka.cz/skla/index.php?page=album&photo=070.JPG&position=70

  15. Nice one.
  16. It is 1950s/60s chanelling earlier design. I think that Northern Czechoslovakia would be the source? Blue is a rarer colour. The decanter's shape is very pleasing.
  17. I don't know quite enough to support the statement, other than we have a very thriving ceramic industry in the 1920s/30s and an established glass industry. I may be entirely mistaken.
  18. I get these wrong all the time! My first guess would be Kralik but I can be soooo wrong sometimes! :-)
  19. I'm not going to betray my ignorance, but couldn't help noticing the similarities between your no. 1 and: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/155094-confetti--spatter-flower-heads-lobed-ur
  20. More to come, maybe? :-)
  21. Thanks for the comments!
  22. Would love to see yours, Jericho!
  23. Dlfd911 and Moonstonelover posted similar with the same mark, but I can't help more than that.
  24. The pronunciation of these names is interesting: Welz should be "Veltz" but I always think and say "w", Rückl is something like "Rookel" and Kralik is "Krahlik", as far as I know.
  25. Yes - I was pretty convinced by the shape link. Base 12.2cm diameter. Max diameter 24cm. "Neck" 14cm diameter. Rim 10.4cm across. 20.5cm tall.
  26. Absolutely convinced by your shape link: I will let him know.
  27. Beautiful teal colour.
  28. Thank you for stopping by.
  29. Others will know better but for me the pink ground is nice and the crowded nature of the decoration on the first nicer!
  30. I usually photograph my bases in my hand as it allows for some light play over the mark, if it is poorly visible.
  31. I have a couple of similar shapes and one similar tadpole or teardrop like this but mine is very painterly, not really like an applied glass gobbet. It would be interesting to know whether you can fe...
  32. I would be interested to know about any others you have seen! Joscyn@hotmail.com.
  33. There is white (milk glass) which isn't my taste - although I wouldn't knock anyone whose opium it is - and then there is white (opaline, mother of pearl, opalescent) and I think these are quite diffe...
  34. You know what I would say from my contiguous post! Lovely!
  35. Hi there and welcome! I haven't heard of Kovels but would appreciate a link. I don't pay too much attention to price guides as I am more led by what I can or want to pay and conversely what someone ...
  36. I should add that I don't know why US, French and possibly Belgian glass was marked and UK not, but someone will!
  37. Artfoot, these are very interesting. One addition to Phil's comment: glass marked TCHECOSLOVAQUIE in France/Belgium is Czech. Almost/all UK Czech glass is unmarked and any I do find, I think, like y...
  38. They are made with great artistry, aren't they? It is no surprise that people collect them. Do you know which maker made this?
  39. Woo - great!
  40. I would say Kralik with that unphotographable sheen? Others will be more knowledgeable as I can get mixed up with the dimensions on this form, which can be quite telling.
  41. So the same size as the blue pair. Glass gets more confusing, rather than less, but always fascinating!
  42. Breaking news: if you are wondering about the lighting, yes, we did have at least 10 minutes of sun today!
  43. Here is Moon's moss agate: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/159399-kralik-moss-agate-rolled-lobed-green-iri
  44. I'm not confident enough to take on the challenge - but love them along with the other 3-4 posts on a similar vein!
  45. @Racer - no stranger to such comments, I know what you mean!
  46. Thank you. I didn't show some damage to the rim but...
  47. It could have been produced any year from 1890-1930???
  48. No, I would say that it isn't greasy or poorly put together, but the Chinese are getting ever more ingenious!
  49. Thanks, Kivatinitz!
  50. I love the handles and the sinuousness of the whole!
