Our interests range from Loetz & Bohemian glass from the Art Nouveau period to works from Studio artists such as Lotton, Satava, etc. In 2012 when Eddy Scheppers decided to sell the website he had created, Loetz.com, Tony Ellery and I purchased it to ensure that collectors from around the world would continue to have access to this amazing site. We are in the process of updating and adding new information about Loetz and hope to unveil the new Loetz.com site in 2013. We welcome any large size photos of Loetz examples that you would like to submit. My email address is: Deb@MoltenSplendor.com (Read more)

  1. I love the detail in describing this vase as well as the period that it came from. Andy has a good eye!
  2. Lee, This set is magnificent! You should be very proud to be their new owner. I am very happy for you.
  3. Wow! I love your Orpheus collection. Great combination of shapes that really show off your collection.
  4. John, As a new Loetz collector, I love that you get it! Loetz is about decor, shape, variety and visual interest in art glass that was produced over a 100 years ago! Collecting Loetz is not about acq...
  5. Love these two amazing vases - size, decor, shape. It's also nice to have documented examples! Both are on my Wish List too!
  6. Love, love it! So fun and interesting.
  7. The other similar feature that I have noticed on most of these pieces is that the painted finish is usually bronze at the top and shades to gold at about the halfway point. I like the branches or ten...
  8. Alan, you are certainly welcome to use both the photo of the "Rindskopf" vase that I sent to you as well as the collage of photos that show examples of various makers of "pink/cranberry papillon". Ple...
  9. I have studied this glass and have saved several photos showing the same decor & crandberry ground color and believe this piece could have been made by Rindskopf. If you would like to private message ...
  10. Very nice!
  11. Frank, When you mentioned that: "You have to win once and awhile" it reminded me of the amazing Loetz PG you found in Cape Code for $25 and then there was the $8000 Quezal that you found a couple of m...
  12. Very nice write up! Love this decor. I agree, many Kralik decors are not only high but hard to find. Kralik "Gloria" is another example of this premise. Come to think of it, you don't see many Loetz...
  13. Great find! Congratulations on acquiring such a rare piece of Loetz. Yes, the Loetz.com advisory team works very hard researching and making information like this available and accessible for fellow ...
  14. What a great find! Lovely.
  15. Great story, beautiful work of art and a truly wonderful artist. You and your wife had an experience of a lifetime!
  16. Awesome!
  17. I did bid on it! Great piece. How did you get it so fast?
  18. Very nice. Love the seaweed DEK!
  19. This series of MR footed cabinet vases with black & silver wisteria decoration was introduced by Charles in 1980. His first production of MR was in 1973. I have the good fortune of owning his first e...
  20. Good work on this new Ausf discovery and documentation, my friend. There are lots of things I will be adding to the site and will make sure you are credited for this new discovery! It may be a while...
  21. Good eye! Yes, I would agree that this is an example of Loetz Pele-mele. The small, tightly wound threads around the body of the vase together with the spreading pink color and cattails are features ...
  22. I think a dozen roses would look great in this one! Nice piece. Congratulations.
  23. Love it!! This is a great example and I have now saved it for future uploading! Congrats on a great find.
  24. Your Lotton collection is growwwwing! :) Very nice example and, yes, Charles Lotton signed his pieces on both the bottom and the sides. He makes all of his glass in a two-step process using a blow rod...
  25. I agree with your partiality to the Candia Mimosa examples. Love your photos!
  26. Great example of Charles' work! This one makes a nice addition to any Lotton collection and yours is certainly growing.
  27. Mac, Yep, this stuff is quite addictive! Great shape and rare color on this decor! Very nice. Now you need to get that yummy, tall PG 377 in this same color!
  28. Warren, I am glad to see that you have picked up the Lotton bug! It is also the PERFECT time to purchase his works. I have not seen prices better for buyers in years. These pieces will be worth much ...
  29. I love these rare pieces that you keep finding! Great example and research information on this decor!
  30. Good information! Is there a good Murano website setup yet for people to go to?
  31. Love this one! Great collection of Papillon shells. Thanks for sharing.
  32. Warren, Maybe it is the lighting or angle but the photos of this piece make it look like it has a "matte" or smooth finish with a slight application of iridescence. Ausf 129 does not have an iridesce...
  33. A cute little guy but not Ausf 129. One of the unique characteristics of Ausf 129 is its shinny, clear finish. A "glatt" finish would indicate another Ausf decor. I know you are good at discovering...
  34. Nice find Warren. Keep em coming!
  35. Wow! Stunning. Great find. Congratulations.
  36. Thank you! Posted!
  37. I think your photos are lovely. If you would like me to add this example to Loetz.com, please let me know.
  38. The Loetz decor name for this vase is "Papillon" and the color is "cobalt". It was made c 1920 -30's. The handles are "candia" colored. You can find several examples of these on Loetz.com in the "Pa...
  39. Antiquerose, I am glad you were able to access this information. I agree it isn't easy to find. Once we have corrected some of the inaccuracies in the Loetz signatures article, I guarantee it will be ...
  40. LOVE the mistletoe mount with the mistletoe decoration! Great example.
  41. I love all of these but the Ausf 240 is especially cool! Yay, Andy
  42. Warren, Great find! I also checked my photo library and have been able to confirm the DEK 110 on your vase. I will send you the photo collage.
  43. I forgot to add that your vase is PN II-40.
  44. Great example, Frank. Nice snag too! :)
  45. Really love this one! Nice photos too.
  46. Warren, I'm sure your already noticed this: 1) PN II-355 in Band 2 lists an "Orchis" decor. I wonder what that decor looks like! 2) Series II shows paper pattern II-354 instead of your shape for PN I...
  47. Great example, Warren. Happy New Year! Yippee
  48. Michelle, I will be working on the Loetz.com website in the next couple of weeks. Let me know if you would like me to add a photo your DEK I/439 to the site. I can be reached at info@loetz.com. Thanks...
  49. A very rare shape for Loetz and a wonderfully detailed explanation of the decor. Nice! I bet it would look awesome resting on a mirrored under-plate.
  50. Andy, I could never be mad at you! This piece reminds me of another one that I have in the same shape but not the same coloras yours. Mine was made with a silver overlay. I will send you a photo of it...
