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. Yes, I looked today and it is a long-necked almost bottle shape.
  2. If you look at pic 12 in the gallery above, I am sure the perfume set on the far right bears a passing resemblance to the yellow one in your first pic.
  3. I am pretty sure Kralik - I think the aventurine in Rindskopf pieces is pulled into feathers.
  4. It can be difficult comparing different angles (and a good photographer helps - I know!).
  5. Actually, maybe the 3rd vase in Pic 1 is mirrored in the Palda catalogue page in the link - look top row, far right, although lacking the blue.
  6. Put me on the subscription list! :-)
  7. I will post a pic of my aventurine one - it tapers perhaps more than yours.
  8. The middle one in pic 1 is the same shape as a Kralik aventurine piece I have. Mine is 18.5cm high x 8cm base x 4.5cm across the rim. The enamelled yellow one looks a bit Palda-y although I can't ...
  9. I am just thinking about a piece I have seen in an antique shop locally. A vase with exactly this colour and ribbing. Not in a very identifiable shape, though.
  10. Haha! Thanks, Anne.
  11. That's n=4 then!
  12. I love the post but the pictures somehow don't all make sense. I can't see the first jug shape anywhere.
  13. Thanks, Al, and everyone else.
  14. Thanks from the optimistic comment, Welzebub, from another beginner! :-)
  15. Thanks, Peggy, any tips for the rust?
  16. Looks like Palda. There is a black and white photo on p 100 of the first Truitt book.
  17. Very nice - but no idea who made it.
  18. Lovely, Peggy.
  19. Thanks for the link, Craig.
  20. Still finding these spatters problematic! Just when I thought I was getting better!
  21. The tango link probably has a deep blue base - but it's impossible to say from the pic. The shape in the first link is spot on... Thanks for all the looks and comments.
  22. It is quite a complex thing, Racer.
  23. Based on weight and glass thickness, it has most in common with my urns in the "Ruckl shimmy" decors whatever you all believe about those. Like Welz, I am a Ruckl "believer" but know not everyone is ...
  24. Thanks!
  25. Mmmmmmmmmm!
  26. They are mine! All mine!
  27. Maybe it's time for me to come out of the closet as a secret basket fan?
  28. Nice to see you back!
  29. Of course, the basket in pic 3 is in a Welz decor.
  30. I don't know about the baskets but the vases are all Welz other than the big pink one at the back in pic 3. I have a number of similar baskets - which I know are not all that popular - some say twee ...
  31. Green would be a nice unusual colour to find them in.
  32. I wouldn't call them JIP but the have lovely worked rims.
  33. I particularly like the pair next to the ruffle basket - I just die for those bottom-up spatter vases!
  34. Anne, what lovelies!
  35. Great photos and glass.
  36. Peggy, you have done it again! Jealous!
  37. I should have remembered your inkwells, Al, thanks for the reminder.
  38. Yes, Kevin, perhaps Tomshchick again?
  39. Very highly polished on both counts - much more so than those I consider to be Kralik - well spotted.
  40. 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.
  41. 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!
  42. 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.
  43. I think this is called "ribbed optic" if you want to see other examples on here including my own!
  44. Peggy, again, a love from me!
  45. Ruckl-y and Kralik-ish!
  46. Thanks. :-)
  47. Thanks, Michelle.
  48. :-) haha
  49. I should say the trim on the rim looks Kralik-y, but the tooling of the rim is Welz again.
  50. The handle and rim look Kralik but the decor looks to me like Welz.
