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. Are there any marks? I just bought something very similar and it has the faintest marks, as if some form of resist was applied to the body of the vase. Similarly on the base. Very much akin to the ...
  2. The decors are remarkably similar, aren't they?
  3. At least we all agree it's Czech. Most probably!
  4. I am not sure but I have been fooled by something recently with a made in Mexico sticker on the base.
  5. This is gorgeous. Especially the pinky ground.
  6. Is it a Rindskopf blank decorated by someone else? Someone will know.
  7. http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,33749.msg346124.html#msg346124
  8. I was unsure about ZBS as the only trailed ones with stickers I have seen have had thinner trails and a "duck beak" rim. I will have a look at glass messages. The problem with relatively simple desi...
  9. Thanks all for your comments.
  10. Thanks, Thomas.
  11. Although it is a frosted window.
  12. You can see what our light was like in the pic above! Dreary, dreary, dreary!
  13. Have you seen the weather here in the UK? We seem to have just had a diffuse must for most of the summer! That's why it's a green and pleasant land, but not good for photographing glass in natural l...
  14. Della, I thought alexandrite as well but it just isn't as pinky as my other alexandrite glass.
  15. The left hand one has a very Skrdlovice base. Polished and chamfered.
  16. Mmmmmmmmm - a wonderful trio of posts.
  17. I agree too that "end of day" isn't really an apt name for this sort of glass, confetti or spatter seeming more apt, but everyone knows what the three terms mean. The truest "end of day" work was the...
  18. Kralik did lots of spatters and other decors on clear grounds. The mirrored finish is definitely a pointer. The mark looks right. Others will be able to tell you about the shape as they have built ...
  19. Nice find.
  20. Love them.
  21. Hey! I tried not to show the broken one!
  22. Not everyone's cup of tea but I could look at these all day long!
  23. I think Czech - those crimps have to match someone else's!
  24. Wow! And my admiration as well!
  25. It's not exactly uv-reactive but it does light up a bit under black light.
  26. Yes, Phil, a single layer of clear and no casing glass.
  27. I agree with Scott that these are - for me - more likely Bohemian than English. Some are very, very difficult to tell apart not least as there was the same copying that went on between Czech or Bohem...
  28. I find these hard to ascribe but I haven't the wealth of knowledge of others.
  29. I think undoubtedly Kralik btw.
  30. Oh wow!
  31. I don't know, Racer, but if I had to hazard a guess, I would say commoner over here than in the US. Craig or Al might know.
  32. Love! What a great pair!
  33. You got it!
  34. If everything were marked, including in the UK, that would be a boon.
  35. This is the uncertainty of Butler Bros and Czech Art Deco glass in a nutshell! I am intrigued by all the links like you.
  36. I see what you mean about the similarity but I don't think it's enough to give a maker: there are also differences. It does appear next to a fan vase in each case but not in the same grouping.
  37. Yes, it did, Phil, but, taking a risk, the damage was minuscule.
  38. Several others are going Scailmont as well. So I will add it to my pile of nearly-Czech!
  39. The shape is vaguely reminiscent of a Kralik eggshell shape although the glass is less fine: the foot is hollow as per the eggshell I have.
  40. You know, I have a couple of Italian, French and Belgian creep-ins to my collection, so although we think these are Kralik at the mo, it wouldn't make them any less nice if they were Danish. In fact,...
  41. As for the cinqfoil detail to the handles, this might link with others. A very nice Kralik décor.
  42. I agree with Al but the mirrored iridescence and canes/millefiori are Kralik. In plainer colours, ID is hard, as for much Art Deco and tango production.
  43. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/200318-ruckl-pricelist-catalogue-page-from-da
  44. Reminds of an iridescent décor posted on this forum twice before.
  45. Ruckl had condiment and toilet sets with similar finials, but so did Harrachov and I am sure others!
  46. Very nice. Maker: not sure!
  47. Love it but darned hard to photograph!
  48. I can see what you mean, Mac, but I see no iridescent versions, just plain and cased glass. Interesting colours but no iridescence?
  49. Not quite 150 but maybe 20! I got other things to collect too, Jericho'. :-)
  50. Thanks both for the inputs: some American glass makes it over here. And Australian! Presumably brought back by maddoes like all of us! I don't discount it, but would agree with Peggy, instincts are...
