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. Great piece! Looks like I will need to add this example to the site. Very nice. Congratulations on such a nice addition to your collection.
  2. Yes, this one is an example of "Norma" which is pretty rare as far as Loetz inkwells go! Great piece!
  3. A beauty! Love this one.
  4. A great example of this decor! Congratulations on such a nice addition to your collection.
  5. Lovely!
  6. Great piece! Congratulations on such a nice addition to your collection.
  7. Based on the shape and the photos showing the smaller "spots" on the finish, this piece could be an example of Silberiris II which has a similar appearance to Cisele. Nice example. http://www.loetz.co...
  8. What a great example of this decor. I can see why it is displayed as one of your favorites. Thanks for sharing.
  9. We have been back to the PGM three more times since seeing this wonderful collection for the first time and meeting you and some of the other members of our "Glass Hound" group in person. Thanks, my ...
  10. oldebodie, a good question. The answer is that there can be variables in the Bohemian glass made during this era but usually these variables are only slight for two reasons. 1) c1900-1920's Bohemian ...
  11. Nice post Kai. I also posted a message nicely directing Al to visit his PGM photos which show Poshinger case #16. But, sadly, that post was also deleted so I posted an article showing these pieces so...
  12. Yes, Ausf 56. Nice example. Here "Silber" refers to the decor "Silberiris" rather than the color, "silver".
  13. Congratulations on being able to add this magnificent example to your collection. Thank you also for the wonderful information on this decor.
  14. You really don't need the expensive books just "flip through the pages" of Loetz.com. Like the books, it takes a bit of time to do the research but the information is there and it's FREE! Great examp...
  15. Volkmar, this is an unusual mark indeed. We have the other ones that you mentioned posted on Loetz.com. But, you are right, I have not seen another mark identical to this one before. Very interesting.
  16. A very rare example indeed. In fact your recent acquisition reminded me that I needed to updated the signature article on Loetz.com to reflect this rare example! Isn't it fun when your research bears ...
  17. Great piece. I have one and can attest that this decor is amazing and it comes alive with different intensity of light on it. Can you tell me how many indents this one has? Thanks.
  18. Yikes! A dreadful signature. I am sure there are Goldberg pieces out there with "LCT" signatures on them as well.
  19. I agree! I don't understand how museums in this day and age can accept a donation in 2014 of known Kralik pieces and attribute them to Loetz. The Kralik silverband pair that they accepted are excepti...
  20. Lovely Goldberg vase. Definitely not Loetz. The Museum indicates that the signature engraved in gold as "Loetz" is [ false signature ?] . The museum also shows several Kralik and PK vases included ...
  21. Love this one! You don't see these very often. Congratulations.
  22. Great work on the early Loetz project, Kai. This segment of time for Loetz produciton now has more information than previously known. Now we just need someone to work on the later Loetz productions! ...
  23. Great piece. You are growing a very fine Loetz collection!
  24. Awesome! Now that's what I call a "collection"!
  25. A real beauty! Congratulations on being able to add such a wonderful piece to your Art Nouveau collection.
  26. This piece is spectacular - the drips, shape, iridescence, the entire package. See Loetz.com for the CmB thumbnail. Definitely a standard for this decor. Congratulations!
  27. Awesome! This don't come up very often. Congratulations.
  28. Andy, I like that the metal holder that you found for this piece allows you to display this vase while showing off as much of the glass as possible. I think this metal base is a keeper!
  29. I am so sorry I tried to help with the identification of this vase. I have received 46 copies of private conversations that are totally unrelated to art glass. This is not the way to communicate on C...
  30. Beautiful color. Is the crackle finish rough to the touch? If so then, my guess would be that it is an example of Kralik crackle.
  31. Great story and so lucky to find a color that was the exact size and period for this vase. Usually, "marriages" exhibit differences but these two are definitely soul mates.
  32. Very nice indeed! I think there are two Charles Lotton decors that are a must have for every Lotton collector: Lava & Multi-Flora. These are "signature, iconic" Lotton decors. His Cypriot Lavas are ...
  33. Wow, Warren, what a great find and such an interesting article on its background and history. I am amazed by all that you know about these things! Thanks for sharing this with us.
  34. Great article, Kai. I think your summary which eliminates Rindskopf but leaves the possibility of this decor being produced by either Heckert or Kralik is spot on! Thanks for sharing your insights wi...
  35. I think the slant back elephants could certainly be an indication for Palda. Do you see any other identifiers that could help distinguish between the two manufacturers?
  36. Ok. All of the Palda examples shown in Truitt II seem to have the "silver saddle" on them.
  37. Good eye, mcheconi! Palda it is then!
  38. Very nice collection. I would love to learn the differences between the two types - Pandora and Mimosa and what to look for to detect the differences.
  39. Very nice match to the PN! Great piece and rare decor. Congratulations on another fine additon to your collection.
  40. Great grouping of shapes to show off this decor. Very nice.
  41. A wonderful combination of mount and glass to create a commanding Art Nouveau presence. Very nice
  42. Very nice vase and great photos! It's also exciting to see such a nice signature on it. Congrats!
  43. Cool! The decor is even shown on the paper pattern! Congrats on adding a great piece to your collection.
  44. Great find! Also great story of the hunt and eventually bagging this one! I do see now that he is a Rhino. The picture we have of him on the site looks like he has two tusks but that just must be the...
  45. Gorgeous vase! Love the rubin ground and shape. Congratulations.
  46. All of the Richter shapes are so exotic! Love this one.
  47. I love the detail in describing this vase as well as the period that it came from. Andy has a good eye!
  48. Lee, This set is magnificent! You should be very proud to be their new owner. I am very happy for you.
  49. Wow! I love your Orpheus collection. Great combination of shapes that really show off your collection.
  50. 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...
