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. Happy Christmas both of you!
  2. Happy Christmas, Kevin. Thanks for all the info and your posts this year. Ian
  3. Trinket pot, dressing table box, powder pot or (at this size biscuit barrel)!
  4. Any info on Riceszinn?
  5. 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.
  6. 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 ...
  7. 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...
  8. Thanks, Warren, I thought it would be one for you! Could you tell me a little more about the enamelling? Is it oroplastic? It is quite gold-y and not oxidised as I would expect silver to be...
  9. Don't know but looks good.
  10. Love it!
  11. But... http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/141777-czech-inkwells-determining-provenance-i?in=442 Now I am confused! One of those Czech houses anyway!
  12. I have deleted 4 last posts, which I did not think added any more to the above. In 2 years of collecting, this debate has bubbled and simmered. There have been people who claimed that Franz Welz w...
  13. Found it! Woo.
  14. Thanks, Racer.
  15. Woo - just found it - very special.
  16. Have you posted the one fourth from the right on here? That, like your current, is very nice.
  17. Thanks, Craig, who would have known my normal default position actually correct on this one!
  18. Anne, it isn't cameo glass but I appreciate your comment.
  19. One of my very early passions was (and remains) heraldry. That said, there are enormous differences between UK and continental heraldry...I think, however, I am on the right track.
  20. This is more recent than the Victorian period - the sticker suggests 1960s or later - someone on here may be able to be more precise. The Mary Gregory style has been produced for over 100 years. I k...
  21. Thanks, Kyle. So Welz-y, Kralik-y, unknown pile!
  22. Warren, I think the lions salient are actually a rather loose "antik" lions rampant - much more likely to support a shield. The execution of heraldic forms even by experienced draughtsmen in the roco...
  23. Thanks, both!
  24. Sklo, you are a wonder. (PS I am an Edwardian).
  25. Thanks, Michelle too - just coming back to this one in case someone had more knowledge. :-)
  26. Hope that helps, otherwise it is a cut and paste.
  27. Warren, thanks, you're a wonder. I might have missed that one.
  28. Thanks both for the comments.
  29. I haven't a clue but the numbers on the lid do not appear to be pre-war to my untrained eye.
  30. I would say Rindskopf with a similar caveat to that in my other comment.
  31. I would say Kralik but there is much more experience on here than mine. The camera flash doesn't do it justice.
  32. They will! www.kralik-glass.com, loetz and glass and loetz.com are all good sites to have a look around for similar things.
  33. The feet on the seashell are very different - more of a tripod formed of 3 'u's. The shapes and vertical ribbing are very different - I can see how they appear similar but they are not. It is hard w...
  34. I have something a bit more slender but looking very similar in an unknown tango spatter. Will try to post.
  35. There are four other ripple optic posts on here, I think.
  36. It looks a little like a Kralik ripple optic (certainly in picture 2) - and the feet look Kralik-y. You need someone with Kralik in their blood for this one. The design is optical anyhow - but doesn...
  37. The casing glass looks a bit thick for my Rindskopfs - but I agree with you it's "got the look"!
  38. For what my comment is worth (and at present it is more heart than anything else) the applied glass looks Kralik-y in its application. :-)
  39. Excellent post. Love the juxtapositions.
  40. I just saw an inkwell in a collection just the same - complete with dimples - in the same broken martele decor reminiscent of a spiderweb.
  41. I have the same square rimmed tango vase and am not sure too.
  42. I think it's great too - there are a number of lamp experts on here- I am not one of them but wonder whether it had a cloche-like shade in the orange to fit atop? Ian
  43. It is certainly out there to find - and (I think) under appreciated. I am not going mad on it at present as usually the EBay phenomenon usually flushes out what there is. I always check out the glas...
  44. OMG. Wowsers.
  45. I exactly agree regarding the shame of fresh flowers fading and dying, but sometimes this is their beauty as well.
  46. The links above have 3 Franz Papert (Kamenicky Senov) vases in red with gold details as "roots of tango glass". Very reminiscent of this one... (dangerous statement, I know). http://rover.rajce.idn...
  47. Thanks, Al.
  48. I appreciate your comment, Al, as I am outside my comfort zone with this - Ian.
  49. Pretty in pink. Very nice group.
  50. Thanks.
