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. Great photos and glass.
  2. Peggy, you have done it again! Jealous!
  3. I should have remembered your inkwells, Al, thanks for the reminder.
  4. Yes, Kevin, perhaps Tomshchick again?
  5. Very highly polished on both counts - much more so than those I consider to be Kralik - well spotted.
  6. Peggy, I haven't considered the rims to be very different to any of my other glass but I will have a look for you.
  7. It looks very Kralik to me - but I do get caught out - you will quickly find out or know who the brain boxes are on here - they all have their own websites!
  8. I call the righthand most one "spiderweb" as it has a clear spiderweb centre towards the bottom. It is a very loose martele. Like a broken web. They appear in pink and blue glass.
  9. I think this is called "ribbed optic" if you want to see other examples on here including my own!
  10. Peggy, again, a love from me!
  11. Ruckl-y and Kralik-ish!
  12. Thanks. :-)
  13. Thanks, Michelle.
  14. :-) haha
  15. I should say the trim on the rim looks Kralik-y, but the tooling of the rim is Welz again.
  16. The handle and rim look Kralik but the decor looks to me like Welz.
  17. Love the candlestick, Ivonne.
  18. Love it all. I am sure you did too! Are you doing introductions? :-)
  19. 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!
  20. 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...
  21. 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.
  22. The first has 8 vertical ribs to the column and 12 "hobnails" - just like the pedestals and bowls.
  23. I don't normally like thanking everyone in my posts, but you are 4 lovely ladies. :-)
  24. 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!
  25. 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...
  26. 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.
  27. 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.
  28. This is the other post: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/146432-rindskopf-tango-dcor-with-applied-amet
  29. Smiata - I love it!
  30. That's a state of mind we are all familiar with, Ivonne!
  31. Very nice, Peggy, and is it Kralik-y or Ruckl-y?
  32. Love the spatter vases.
  33. I would say modern looking at the foot that I think should have a bit of honest wear if 50+ years old?
  34. From this I would say 1- no, 2-4 possible.
  35. 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...
  36. Amazing but still no more sure!
  37. I have another in acid red and white but the two together was too, too much!
  38. It looks reminiscent of, but not the same, as pictures of Wunsch for Exbor vases. I am not the person to ask - Vetraio!
  39. 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...
  40. There will be more interest on here and you could also try Glassmessages.com.
  41. 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.
  42. 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...
  43. 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...
  44. :-) Alfredo posted on Stolzle - they appear very similar but not in this shape.
  45. Love the wall pockets! Giving us all something else to look out for! Ian
  46. Yum! What did I say about our tastes overlapping?
  47. 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.
  48. 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?
  49. Not yet, Peggy!
  50. 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...
