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. Love it all. I am sure you did too! Are you doing introductions? :-)
  2. I think all that can be said with confidence at the moment is that the acorn detailing is mighty similar to that on Scott's link to a recent post!
  3. I am loving your fairy lamp posts as, in common with many I am sure, I didn't know about them before. Original documentation is difficult for lots of Czech glass as you are finding. I am sure ther...
  4. The bowls are relatively common over here - often described as Stourbridge or Murano - but a bowl with pedestal together relatively uncommon - and I think I bought these separately.
  5. The first has 8 vertical ribs to the column and 12 "hobnails" - just like the pedestals and bowls.
  6. I don't normally like thanking everyone in my posts, but you are 4 lovely ladies. :-)
  7. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/148954-pedestal-and-bowl-in-yellow-spatter--re?in=442 You just brought a pretty unassuming candlestick to a new life!
  8. I would quote, as an example, Leah's contribution which omits that the vase shapes are similar but different inter pictures 2 and 3/4. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/148382-visually-could-it...
  9. I have previously seen the group which you posted. I am not sure that it adds very much to the lengthy contributions to this issue.
  10. Thanks. I think you're right - you very commonly find these trophy forms. Octagonal bases, aventurine, tango colours or coloured handles are all more unusual.
  11. This is the other post: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/146432-rindskopf-tango-dcor-with-applied-amet
  12. Smiata - I love it!
  13. That's a state of mind we are all familiar with, Ivonne!
  14. Very nice, Peggy, and is it Kralik-y or Ruckl-y?
  15. Love the spatter vases.
  16. I would say modern looking at the foot that I think should have a bit of honest wear if 50+ years old?
  17. From this I would say 1- no, 2-4 possible.
  18. It would be unusual for Czech millefiori vases to have pontil marks at all as they were blown into moulds. Unless what you are describing is a smooth base, from this manufacturing technique? The rim...
  19. Amazing but still no more sure!
  20. I have another in acid red and white but the two together was too, too much!
  21. It looks reminiscent of, but not the same, as pictures of Wunsch for Exbor vases. I am not the person to ask - Vetraio!
  22. I should add there is a row of "hobnails" at the weakest point where the stem meets the body - now these can have no possible decorative purpose apart from being visible at an angle. I think they mus...
  23. There will be more interest on here and you could also try Glassmessages.com.
  24. If you look at my recent posts large cased and loose martele, you can see two ground rims. I am afraid the quality of one of the pics isn't perfect.
  25. I agree with Michelle. If the rim were smooth and rounded, I would think Murano - and possibly 1920s from the shape - whereas we find cased glass such as this from Bohemia would have a rim that was g...
  26. You certainly convince me, Craig, the shapes of the 3 vases are identical to my eye - the only problem is with the ubiquity of yellow and white spatters in different production. The long necks for No...
  27. :-) Alfredo posted on Stolzle - they appear very similar but not in this shape.
  28. Love the wall pockets! Giving us all something else to look out for! Ian
  29. Yum! What did I say about our tastes overlapping?
  30. I thought with Austaro and Kevin on board there would have been some answers but obvs unknown, then, or they are thinking the same as me.
  31. Craig, thanks for the mail which shows this shape (tall) in a number of Welz decors. I will try to put them all together and post as a link, if that's ok?
  32. Not yet, Peggy!
  33. Loving the bottom-up spatter. Am I right in saying little UK import ware was marked? I found my first marked piece this week (which I will post) but I even wonder if that has made its way back to he...
  34. That might also help us pin some pre war stuff by region as surely makers drew on what they knew in terms of technique and design?
  35. Is it channelling early Beranek pieces? I think it is interesting looking through post war catalogues looking at pieces makers have referenced or drawn on.
  36. We seem to have very similar tastes, Peggy!
  37. I don't normally do pairs but I think this and other tango ones I have seen which form a sort of diptych or triptych are for me: I would like these better if it was more of a story between the two.
  38. Wonderful.
  39. Great resource, Craig. I am left feeling a bit Welz-ed out! Love the yellow spotty one here.
  40. Love these, Al.
  41. I agree - we seem to do the Victorian a lot better than the later stuff. I don't know whether our home glass industry was just doing good things or economic factors played a part - I have often wonde...
  42. Very exciting stuff. I have some suspicion that there may be one or two for whom nothing short of your resurrecting the entire Welz family and having them sign affidavits will do. It is a privilege ...
  43. Happy Christmas, Kevin. Thanks for all the info and your posts this year. Ian
  44. Any info on Riceszinn?
  45. If yours is very black, I suspect it is like my other - very deep amethyst - as I think that is how a deep black is produced.
  46. I have one very similar to yours, apart from the casing glass is much thinner. The dark spatter is very dark amethyst, rather than deep, inky blue, on mine. I have a few inky blue satin coral vases ...
  47. I am sorry to read about your friend's death. Glass, for me, and some others, is a huge repository of memory and moment. Whether the moment of seeing and buying, or as a present, or whatever. So th...
  48. Don't know but looks good.
  49. Love it!
  50. But... http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/141777-czech-inkwells-determining-provenance-i?in=442 Now I am confused! One of those Czech houses anyway!
