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 base looks really interesting. Looking Czech/Bohemian to me. Someone else may help with an ID.
  2. Anne, this is a candy box selection for sure! Wonderful.
  3. @All> I am busted as a toddler! @Anne> Couldn't agree more. I think that the understanding of tango has shifted over time - you know we share the passion! The unifying feature in my mind is strong ...
  4. Lovely Art Deco shape and décor. Nice.
  5. Yum! All!
  6. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/145251-two-lemon-yellow-vases-with-applied-tadp My two examples have "tadpoles" which are ever so slightly proud of the surface - not covered in another laye...
  7. Regarding décors and names, there are few Art Deco glass décors with names from Czechoslovakia - this would be one of the nameless! I would see it as part of a continuum of Art Deco design using Art ...
  8. It looks amazing and is unusual, like your other. I must say, in common with that, I immediately thought Welz, but with less certainty. The creamy colour is a possible, as are the red tadpoles. Let...
  9. If the number of petals match Peggy's, I think you have your answer for the moment! I certainly thought Welz immediately.
  10. Maybe too much of a stretch of the imagination! But I think that the same skill that made epergne parts is employed in these tubes and sticks at least. They are similar to me as hot-worked hollow pi...
  11. Thanks, Craig, so confirming my suspicions. At least it's Czech or European at the VERY least! :-)
  12. It looks like Kralik to me.
  13. There are a few Chribska listings including my own on here and some great internet resources. http://www.webareal.cz/ceskoslovenskesklo has some great catalogue resources for a start!
  14. Thanks, Mac.
  15. Anne, I think your comment about test tubes is really interesting but I had thought the tube vases a development of the epergne. I don't know if that is any help?
  16. The top 5 are not fixed!
  17. Well-reasoned as ever. The problems with Art Deco glass could end up being a combination of individual companies copying shapes and décors, companies collaborating in production, relatively simple sh...
  18. I have had and sold something very similar but not 100% - not with the black "bubble" enamel: I agree 100% Bohemian, but not sure by whom.
  19. It is on my mantelpiece (aka the photostudio) as we write, whereas the hoard is relegated elsewhere (the den).
  20. I see the clear spirals of the Loetz spiral decors mimicking the old stone carvings, whereas I think the "other" spiraloptisch decors don't.
  21. Al, I wonder what you think about archaeology influencing design - I see Celtic spirals in the spiraloptisch (see Newgrainge in google - who knows what German/Austrian finds?) and Mycenae in some hand...
  22. I am thinking Newgrainge carvings - and who knows what other German ones? This is on the back of thinking Mycenae vases influenced handle shapes - a whole new avenue? Or revisiting an old one?
  23. It's my new favourite piece - for the moment!
  24. Thanks, Craig.
  25. I am with Craig, but there is a discussion, so only fair to query it all. I am, after all only toddling.
  26. Not this *exact* piece I suspect unless the chip is a dead giveaway!
  27. This shape doesn't appear in the tango exhibits that I have seen but there may be others!
  28. This sort of raised, almost impasto decoration is interesting but I am not sure of its age ie whether post war (1945) or not. I suspect post 1945 but others will know more.
  29. As ever, Al, a gem.
  30. I must say that link is very subtly coloured. I think this one definitely lilac, but willing to be moved on the issue!
  31. I haven't any experience of sun-purpled glass: I am not sure about that but the feet do look more purple than the rest. Hmm.
  32. Great stuff, Al!
  33. Maybe they are unknown with the pointer jiggling at the moment, but doesn't that sound like a lot of what we love, and even some of our "definites" sometimes?
  34. Al, were there lamp shades or "tulips" in a similar form?
  35. Sometimes the scale pointers jiggle a bit in these discussions, don't they? But well put together. Food for thought.
  36. Thanks for the link to your site, Dave.
  37. What a nice set of links - thanks.
  38. Please send the link!
  39. Dear Dave, I hope you don't mind me using the picture - and people can use the link to your posts to see another biscuit barrel with this shape in a very unusual décor?
  40. Great glass in great posts and, as always, very well reasoned.
  41. Wow! Amazing!
  42. Thanks, Lisa.
  43. Thanks, Sean.
  44. Peggy> ribbing in the mould is a definite plus but I meant "cut out" spatter as in the base.
  45. Thanks, Craig, and happy New Year!
  46. I agree with Inky. Thanks and all the best to you.
  47. Yes - very similar.
  48. You have to love that acid blue - quite distinctive.
  49. Whoop! This is nice!
  50. Not really. I wouldn't say so - just the faintest glow.
