Brighton, UK

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. Would you mind sending a pic or link?
  2. Hope that gets better, Rose.
  3. I wouldn't say we are swimming in it, but the tables are turned for this sort of ware in the UK vs the US compared to, say, some of the more Art Deco stuff that appears in Butler Bros. catalogues, whi...
  4. Thanks, Alan, you reminded me of your beautiful piece - and what a shape!
  5. Love them!
  6. It has to be Kralik. I have not seen one with this rim but the blue glass, teardrops, leaves...
  7. Are you sure the plastic isn't enamelled glass?
  8. Hmm. I don't know!
  9. I would be interested in a close up of the shield, if you can email, Al!
  10. It is St George of course and the coat of arms is (as appears here) a bend sinister embowed or courbé in French. That is, as long as the image isn't a mirror image.
  11. Very jealous! I will keep an eye out for the pedestal for you!
  12. Jitka Lninckova has to write a book!?!
  13. This is rather nice! You couldn't imagine these shapes being made now, could you?
  14. Could be snakes head fritillary.
  15. I don't think the Chinese could produce something so nice and light. I think Bohemian but that's about as far as I can go.
  16. Thanks.
  17. Okay. I will have to have a look at mine. Compelling. It is interesting how things look different in groups like this.
  18. Great group. Not Kralik, though? I thought that blue and white veining theirs, but am only just starting out.
  19. Very trippy! I recognise that acid blue from a few things.
  20. That cameo reminds me of the shape of Kralik "jewel" cabochons - not that there's a direct link here, but maybe that's what the later cabochon was channelling?
  21. I am not asking, Blunderbuss!
  22. Thanks, all.
  23. Czech, maybe?
  24. Yes, looks like 1950-70. Apparently millions of different gilded vases, glasses, decanters and all sorts of other wares were sold by Exbor particularly at this time. A whole new avenue of collecting...
  25. Thanks, Kivatinitz!
  26. Thanks, Scott.
  27. Yes - I find the same thing - at least for known pieces. I am waiting to get to the British Library to look at a booking Antonin Ruckl - will let you know!
  28. Thanks, Ivonne!
  29. The difficulties of translating technical glass terms on Google translate!
  30. It isn't at all heavy. Are yours in your postings?
  31. Hello, Paris1925, it is an unknown member of the Pohl family, as far as I can see. The work of Josef Marian Pohl is signed but his signature was in capitals. The famous vases are either Josef Marian o...
  32. Nice! As ever, jealous!
  33. There are 2 other very similar ones under "Kralik overshot". Ozmarty and Mac, I think.
  34. Thanks - that makes sense.
  35. All these decor comparisons have been very interesting. Thanks.
  36. I think this is the sort of thing that I would have bought a couple of years ago. The good thing about everything that passes through your hands is that it has its own beauty and that it helps you le...
  37. Loving the pink!
  38. I think we do overlap a lot in our tastes, Peggy! We probably reflect quite well what is available in the UK for Czech Art Deco.
  39. Thanks, Craig!
  40. I would call them a true pair. Who wants two exactly the same or in mirror image anyway?
  41. Haha. My bad!
  42. Good comments - I have been drawn to something recently only to find a "Made in Mexico" label on it. Care and developing an eye are what I would add to Ann's comment.
  43. That is to say, apart from the unusual tri-lobed heart shape itself.
  44. I will try to keep afoot of the discussion - all information or comment welcome. Ian
  45. Here are links to my two postings on this topic: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/145254-kralik-millefiore-vase-and-bowl--i-thin http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/127686-tango-bowl-...
  46. I have put down one as Kralik, but will keep afoot of discussion here re ID.
  47. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/162086-kralik-iridescent-loose-martel-vase http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/132055-pink-something-between-honeycomb-and-mar
  48. Inky has one exactly the same and I have posted a few. The rims, where not collared, are highly polished, somewhat out of keeping with Kralik as a maker, I think.
  49. I *love* this pattern. I think it is very redolent of a broken spider web and you will find (at least) one part on the body - for example on pic 2 - where the 5-6 spokes radiate out from the "centre"...
  50. I like the comparisons - look through my posts for the millefiori bowl and a matching vase. I will try to post links here.
