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. The collar on left looks the same as mine just posted. I love the fourth, like Alan.
  2. Lovely shape.
  3. I love the yellow one. There is another size - more like a pitcher about twice the height and with a longer handle. Online at the moment but from the USA.
  4. I agree Welz and maybe for a pedestal in a matching decor.
  5. Very pretty and interesting finial too.
  6. Thanks - Kralik I think then.
  7. Thanks, Jags. I always look forward to your posts.
  8. Thanks and, yes, Fran, I think the label quite something, not least as it is firmly linked to Welz, as much as the decor. Labels can be faked, but the provenance of this from France makes that slight...
  9. Thanks, Craig. Appreciate the help.
  10. Very nice, Mac.
  11. Thanks. Mine were just guesses.
  12. It is brushed on at the base. I don't know if this comes across in the photos? Maybe in (3)?
  13. I have a turquoise hyacinth vase for the moment.
  14. Nice shape!
  15. Thanks, you both.
  16. Thought I would re-comment as the thread was bare - thanks, Craig.
  17. Welz? Maybe.
  18. They are satiny-smooth - following all the recent satin posts. I live in hope of a "link piece" at some point, but, until then, in the unknown pile.
  19. Thanks.
  20. This is nice.
  21. What do you mean by "factory", Craig? Do you mean they have been scissored?
  22. Thanks. :-)
  23. Love your pins, Michelle, to add to a great post.
  24. I think unknown between Harrach and Welz with a decided lean towards the latter. Others will know more.
  25. If you click on my name and look over the last year, you will see two.
  26. Oh, Peggy, what a tragedy! I have had some amazing survivors like the vase posted in an envelope with just cling film, and then the 4 packed together in one sheet of newspaper each of which one survi...
  27. I have it on two larger vases both listed here if you have a look. Thanks.
  28. Is it Kralik? Someone will be able to tell.
  29. Thanks for the comments and loves.
  30. Thanks for your inputs on this. Appreciated.
  31. Thanks, Craig, it is almost satin. I think the final layer before iridising was satin to give the less mirrored effect. What do you think?
  32. Thanks for the comments. I guess many more of these mounts existed at some time but have become separated from their vases and lost.
  33. Thanks, Al, you are a mine of information as ever!
  34. Thanks, Zowie. Appreciate the comment.
  35. Looking at Jags recent post, a pedestal?
  36. I wouldn't want to try anyhow! Thanks for the comments and info.
  37. Arched Kralik mark?
  38. Great! Love it.
  39. I am not sure. I am certain all metal, precious or otherwise, would have been at a premium in 1918, assuming the rim is contemporaneous.
  40. Thanks for the comment. Maybe the shape was informed by bulb-forcing?
  41. Thanks.
  42. Haha - you're a mind reader! Yes. May be on here in a few days!
  43. Could I ask the diameter of the stand at top and/or the fitting at the base of the bowl for insertion into the stand? I only ask as I am waiting for a stepped bowl which I think is Welz with exactly ...
  44. In one of the two Truitt books there is an interesting chart of export figures for Czech glass around the world by region and period. It makes interesting reading and just shows there is a lot out th...
  45. Thanks, Anne. My email is joscyn@hotmail.com.
  46. They seem a bit big for what I know of larger Welz shapes. They seem to fit in with a series of large columnar hyacinth vases I have posted in blue and white, yellow and white. That's why I said my ...
  47. In the example I saw, some of the thick prunts had diamond or square impressions, which added to the optical effect.
  48. Haha, just re-reading that, I know it's amber. :-)
  49. Chribska did a similar colour with large prunts but not the same optical effect. Maybe in one of their catalogues online? The example I saw is a bottle dated 1964.
  50. Nice example.
