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 these rare pieces that you keep finding! Great example and research information on this decor!
  2. Good information! Is there a good Murano website setup yet for people to go to?
  3. Love this one! Great collection of Papillon shells. Thanks for sharing.
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. Nice find Warren. Keep em coming!
  7. Wow! Stunning. Great find. Congratulations.
  8. Thank you! Posted!
  9. I think your photos are lovely. If you would like me to add this example to Loetz.com, please let me know.
  10. 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...
  11. 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 ...
  12. LOVE the mistletoe mount with the mistletoe decoration! Great example.
  13. I love all of these but the Ausf 240 is especially cool! Yay, Andy
  14. 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.
  15. I forgot to add that your vase is PN II-40.
  16. Great example, Frank. Nice snag too! :)
  17. Really love this one! Nice photos too.
  18. 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...
  19. Great example, Warren. Happy New Year! Yippee
  20. 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...
  21. 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.
  22. 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...
  23. A very rare decor indeed! Congratulations on a fine addition to your collection. You also described it perfectly. You don't see the translucence of these pieces in most photos.
  24. Another new discovery! You are a good treasure hunter. Love this decor.
  25. A very rare decor. Congratulations on such a great find! Looking forward to adding this to the site.
  26. The swan was produced by Loetz in 1905!! The PN is II-2066 and the decor listed for this size and two other sizes (II-2065 & 2067) includes mention of the "Papillon" decoration. Actually, most of the...
  27. Wow! What a beautiful piece of Harrach and such a great write up on it. Thanks for sharing.
  28. Good detective work on this one!
  29. Congratulations on a great piece of Loetz. Based on the color of the glass shown in the photo of the pontil, I would say "bronze". This decor is on my "gotta have" list! :)
  30. Gary/Frank, This is a brand new decor! I just posted it to the site yesterday and will add a news announcement about it on the site when I get some time this weekend. Warren had discovered it a while...
  31. Beautiful! I also find that the pansy Empire examples have much thinner threads than the other colors of Texas Empire.
  32. How tall is this vase?
  33. Lundberg, Lalique, Labino, Littleton... With the exception of Littleton, much of these artist's works are in the Art Nouveau style which is most likely why they ended up in our collection. But Littlet...
  34. Lovely example and, yes, a rare color. If you would like me to post a photo of it on Loetz.com, let me know.
  35. Love Lotton & Loetz! It wasn't on purpose but I discovered later on that our art glass collecting preferences seemed to include a lot of "L's"! LOL We are close friends with the Lotton family and ha...
  36. Your bronze Rusticana looks like it has a nice Silberiris finish to it.
  37. Warren, I watched this one too and almost bought it for the same reasons that you did. It is such an unusual example of Rusticana. It really was a special piece. I am sick to hear that after 120 year...
  38. Great work, Warren! We will be posting this new decor on the site for sure. Now the world will be able to learn about your discovery of a new Loetz decor, "Esmeralda"! This is also an opportunity t...
  39. Wow! Very cool. Didn't know about this glass company but you hit the jackpot with this piece!
  40. Yep, it sure looks green now! Photos can really distort the true colors of a piece. Sometimes this is done on purpose by the seller and other times, as in the example of your vase, it is just bad ph...
  41. Silberiris, one of my favorite decors! Simple yet the best way to show off an elaborate shape. That is why so many of the difficult extruded vases were done in this decor. Very Nice!
  42. Love it! I can faintly see the cross hatched star pattern in the center of the enameled cartouche indicating that it is DEK I/200.
  43. I just love this decor. You don't see these come up very often! I like the four lobbed effect on this one. Nice size too.
  44. Very nice, Lee. I love the colors on this one!
  45. Love, love, this one, Mac!
  46. Rare and beautiful!
  47. This was typical of the Series pieces. Corriea is still selling numbered "editions" of their 90's pieces! I love Kelsey Murphy's work. Love the blue too.
  48. Thank you! I will post it this weekend. BTW, how tall is this vase?
  49. Love the story. Very fun! I have the Prestel book and compared your vase to the one mentioned as being on page 67 fig.13. The book piece is blue, does not have mica flecks and the ribs are slanted ra...
  50. They are all lovely pieces of glass and hopefully some day we might know more about them. To answer Frank's question, while there isn't conclusive evidence to place these pieces in a particular catego...
