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. Great find.
  2. Love the baby blue!
  3. Wonderful find! Keep them coming!
  4. Thanks, Martika.
  5. I have seen something similar recently but was a little wary.
  6. I think that the light pink handled bowl could be Welz but it's such a generic shape.
  7. I think that the light pink trumpet is Welz but Craig will know. Love them.
  8. Great. Is the bowl a Loetz shape? It has that translucence?
  9. Rough ground.
  10. Good question: Jericho seems to know a lot about that issue. The lobes do not seem far apart enough to me, and there is no evidence from West of a monture or cage ever being on. The base lends itsel...
  11. Love it. More!
  12. Looking at the serpentine form of the glass, and almost Egyptian feel, got to be Post 1922? Think about pharonic headgear?
  13. What great information to go with a stunning piece!
  14. Great link!
  15. Thanks, Peggy.
  16. Clear handle, Phil. Pink would have been lovely!
  17. Uses for baskets welcomed! I think they suit silk roses.
  18. I love these shapes but they are difficult!
  19. Happy Christmas, Kevin!
  20. I don't know if we can say Loetz for sure but the Loetz fiends will know.
  21. Looks like a décor I just posted but not sure about the shape.
  22. Thanks, Craig: the example you have shown with the same colourway has me convinced. If I think anything might be Welz, I normally run it by you and am sometimes caught out like this.
  23. Good question, Peggy: two blowings? Pulled flakes as opposed to smeared flakes?
  24. It is not strongly uv reactive.
  25. Thanks, Peggy, I am getting some better lighting soon!
  26. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/194821-butler-bros-conundrum-and-more-questions
  27. The top right has a similar shape with applied leaves. The group has never been identified 100% but the jug looks incredibly similar to a known Kralik décor. The applied flowers also made people thi...
  28. Definitely Czech Art Deco but maker not known at the moment. I love these as well.
  29. Love it, Peggy, and jealous, as ever! It looks like it may have had a lid.
  30. The "blush" around the edges of some of the confetti does look very Welz-y to me. That and the acid blue, orange and yellow.
  31. You have made quite a nice grouping there, Peggy, which does seem to link all 4. I love it.
  32. I don't think these need frogs. Smaller vases yes but not this.
  33. If it had a longer neck, it would be huge!
  34. Thanks for the love and comment! I was in some doubt as a beginner in buying this!
  35. Will do. Thanks for the comments.
  36. I have posted a solifleur with a very similar finish which interested me. I will try to find the link.
  37. I agree - almost to the point of being different.
  38. You could search on here under canes, caned, millefiori, Iris - some of the collectors have lots more special ones. Look on www.kralik.com for lots of examples under ball vases, Deco shapes and mille...
  39. Heaven. I think you have shown us the tip of the iceberg!
  40. Yes, the flower glows bright under uv but the trails don't.
  41. As we don't have a summer as such in the UK, it might have to remain more of an idea!
  42. Thanks, Peggy.
  43. At least we can all agree on the catch-all Czech Art Deco. I have heard a local call this interwar period the First Republic. I don't know how historically accurate that description is, but it sets ...
  44. I thought it was unusual for it to be on clear and so chock full of applied glass.
  45. Thanks, Craig, I think so too.
  46. I can't find any similar shape but find that strong foot very reminiscent of Kralik and Ruckl.
  47. I would go with Craig - I find the Heckert/Poschinger/PK axis very hard to navigate!
  48. Looks like Kralik to me.
  49. Cheers. I learnt a lot here and through Glass Messages.
  50. Not sure about this one: the gold in aquagold is very gold and the swirls wider and more iridescent. However, there are people with 10x my experience, so get the consensus again!
