I have been collecting Bohemian glass, mostly Rindskopf, Kralik and Loetz, for over fourteen years. I find it so intriguing and beautiful. It all started when I saw I have been collecting Bohemian glass, mostly Rindskopf, Kralik and Loetz, for over fourteen years. I find it so intriguing and beautiful. It all started when I saw (and then purchased) my first piece of Loetz - a beautiful little double gourd vase. I always love to learn more from others, and to share in the joy of our latest finds!

  1. Thank you, inky - I am glad you think so! :)
  2. Thank you, inky! :)
  3. This one just GLOWS, sklo! Beautiful!
  4. Great colors on this one, too!!
  5. The pale pink glass with the deep blue is a beautiful combination. Really nice, Ian!
  6. Beautifully decorated - thanks for sharing it!
  7. Thank you, Rick. I really like it too - I think of the base color as sort of deep apricot gold.
  8. Thank you so much, Rick!
  9. Penny, I am so glad you posted this one! Your photos of it are perfect - it is such a gorgeous shade of green, and so nicely decorated!
  10. Thank you, kivatinitz! :)
  11. Thank you, Karen; I am glad you like it!
  12. Peggy, I don't think I'd have liked those shops, either. If I do go to Baccarat next summer, I'll be looking for other examples of their work! :)
  13. kivatinitz, that sounds like a great experiment to try! Thank you!
  14. Hi Karen, I am so glad! Isn't it fun to learn something completely new about something rather familiar? I love that...
  15. kivatinitz, thank you!
  16. Karen, Thank you so much!
  17. I agree, sklo; this is a lovely color; what a great find! :)
  18. You are gathering quite a collection of tri-ball vases! How fun - I love your group photo, too. These are just so distinctive!
  19. Thank you, sklo! :)
  20. Oh this is a beauty, Ian!
  21. Hi Peggy, I had to look that saying up - I like it! :) Thanks so much for your kind words!
  22. Peggy, you are very kind to say that; thank you! I love to share what I have learned with others. You know, until about a year ago, I had no idea that Baccarat did anything other than the cut crystal ...
  23. antonizz, as Ivan pointed out, opaline can be molded (pressed), or cut - it is still French opaline. I just posted a Baccarat vase on CW that is from roughly the same era as yours; it is molded and in...
  24. Thank you very much, Alan! :)
  25. I agree with Ivan; I believe it is a nice example of French opaline glass from about 1890. I have examples that are quite thick, and have seen similar boxes. What a lovely find! :)
  26. Really? I'll have to look that one up! :)
  27. Very pretty, Pat. Your vase is in a frosted clear martelé (hammered) pattern; the martelé pattern in this example is a bit less defined than in others I have seen. I have seen this shape attributed to...
  28. What a beautiful vase - I love this decor.
  29. OH my goodness, I love this one. So very, very cheerful!! Citrus in a bowl, and I am so glad to hear you have had blue sky! :)
  30. A beautiful floriform, sklo. I like the upright form very much and it is the perfect compliment to your other beauty!
  31. Oh, what sunny, cheerful vase. So delicate, and amazing it is in such good condition for its age!
  32. Ian, isn't Brighton supposed to be where Brits go on holiday - for the sun & sea? ;) (Congrats on the sun!) And I love this vase - the color, pattern and shape all scream Welz to me, too.... :) (I to...
  33. This is a truly lovely vase, Paris. And I agree, museums DO need to be held to a higher standard in their attributions!
  34. Oh, this one is so fun! I love all the ruffles; I am so glad you decided to keep it - I love it, too! :)
  35. Beautiful, Warren. I love the cool frosted glass with the deep blue - so beautiful.
  36. What a beauty, Ivonne! The blue is just lovely!
  37. Thank you very much, Karen - you are too kind! :)
  38. sklo, thanks so much - I am so glad you like it! Oak leaves and acorns may have been popular then, but they will always be trendy with me! :) We are surrounded by old Live Oaks here, and a large one d...
  39. This was a very interesting discussion between everyone - thanks for the food for thought!
  40. I finally get to see it! Beautiful, sklo. I am happy you were able to get the Harlequin - it is so pretty in this example! (And one of my favorite decors...) :)
  41. Terrific examples of the tri-ball vases! I particularly like your deep red to Amber example. Welz was just so imaginative, and their creativity with color combinations seem to be just endless.
  42. Oh sklo, those two green thorns are really wonderful examples. The undulating ribbon-like forms are terrific. Aren't thorns so much fun? :)
  43. Very nice vase, Alan. I really like the interesting molding on the sides. I have never seen one like this attributed to Rindskopf before. I don't know who the maker is, but you may want to look at som...
  44. Hi Alan, thanks so much! And sure, I'd be happy to try to answer any questions you may have about Rindskopf. :)
  45. What a beauty!!
  46. I agree with Ian; I have a similar thorn in pink, and believe it could be either Welz or Kralik at this point. Yours is lovely - thanks for sharing it!
  47. How cheerful this is! I love it - it would be so fun to have on a table for a Sunday brunch!
  48. olebodie, thank you very much! :)
  49. Thank you, kivatinitz!
  50. sklo, thanks so much! I do enjoy seeing how makers used different decors, and how different they look against different backgrounds and shapes; your posts are often great examples of that!
