They are 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! (Read more)

  1. Thanks so much - I will do that! :)
  2. Sure thing, Marty! :)
  3. Lee, I LOVE the cup! I have never seen one before - what a great form! What a coincidence, too! :)
  4. Scott, I can understand wanting to get home as soon as possible! Now when you do go, it will be at your leisure. :)
  5. Thanks Scott! You should go if you can! :)
  6. What a sweet & special gift! I'd say Kralik, too - and a very pretty one. :)
  7. Just gorgeous, Mac!!
  8. Sorry, Ian - your vase looked like a soft crackle to me, until I zoomed in the pics just now. What a cool pattern!
  9. Ian, I'd agree with you that your vase is definitely Bohemian, based on the decor and shape. Have you seen this post on CW? http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/56653-mystery-glass I have been do...
  10. Ian, I have an upright Kralik floriform that has the same flower shape as yours - I really do think yours is Kralik. It is a gorgeous color, and I love it with the mount, original or not! :)
  11. Mac, your shelves are really wonderful - what a classy way to display your glass. And you can see each individual piece so well - I know exactly what you mean about displaying without making it look l...
  12. Oooooooh - I love this one!!
  13. Wow, Lee - what a beauty!!! I love it!! :)
  14. Inky - wow!! What a stunning pair! Good for you!
  15. Warren, I have been out of the country, but watched and desperately wanted that cyclamen vase - just stunning. I am happy to hear it went to you. I thought it was Poschinger, and would love to know wh...
  16. Jim, what a beautiful example of Welz in the rainbow honeycomb decor. Your lamp is just gorgeous - really a wonderful piece of glass.
  17. Inky, you are so sweet, thank you! :)
  18. Lisa, you certainly are! :) The vase was tough to photograph and to get the pink tones to look correct with my camera, but after a second try I got it - the photos show the accurate coloring. Not quit...
  19. Interesting information - thanks, Lee!
  20. Lisa, thank you, and oh wow! I can't believe it - I didn't think many people saw the listing. If you saw this and thought Bohemian, you are getting scarily good, very fast! (The rather fuzzy pictures ...
  21. Ian, I believe your vase may be Harrach. I have seen this style of decor from them before - here is an example: http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/1275782
  22. Thanks Lee! I know you love the pink! :)
  23. So cheerful - love it! :)
  24. ...and I am not loving this post, okay?
  25. Oh Lee, I am so sorry. What a sad thing to have happen. I think it must happen to us all at one point, and I hope you find another vase to make you happy.
  26. You have some beauties! What a great collection!
  27. Very nice, Ian! I love the Welz Rainbow Honeycomb decor. The hobnails are unusual!
  28. Thanks, Mac!
  29. Gorgeous, Tomasz!
  30. I'm so glad you got it, Lee! :)
  31. Oh inky, thank you. I know you do! ;)
  32. Lisa, this is one of my favorite Goldberg patterns - I love the sort of dandelion sunbursts against the egg-shaped vase - gorgeous!
  33. I agree; these vases are often mis-attributed to Stevens & Williams (actually, all the time!), but are actually believed to be by Harrach.
  34. Lisa, thank you for your very kind comment!
  35. Thank you, Lisa - it was one of my lucky finds! :)
  36. Thanks so much, antiquerose & Lee!
  37. inky, thanks so much. I knew when I saw it that it was a special one. My Rindskopf love keeps growing! ;)
  38. Marty, this reminds me of a Kralik tango I posted a few weeks ago in lime - it is very UV reactive - does the cream trim on yours react to black light? It feels to me like it should...
  39. Very pretty! Love the shape and bit of sparkle!
  40. I do have one trick for cleaning small vases with bulbous bottoms, where a brush may not reach - fill them with a small handful of dried lentils or garbanzo beans (depending on the vase size) with a s...
  41. It is such a pain in the butt to get the last bit of debris from these floriform stems - I often wonder if they used to put muddy plants in there, they can be so bad! I think a very thin wire, if a pi...
  42. Tomasz, what a lovely vase - like sunshine in the blue sky! The shape feels Kralik to me, but I haven't seen this particular color combination before - I like it!
  43. Thank you, shareurpassion, you are very kind! :)
  44. Thank you, shareurpassion!
  45. TableauxArts, yes, it will be very welcome - I particularly collect Rindskopf, and this is a beauty. Thank you! :)
  46. Smiata, I believe your vase is Rindskopf; I have one in the same decor and shape, but smaller. I love the mount it has!
  47. Oh, those are beauties!
  48. Oh Warren, I am so sorry. I was watching this piece - it is an amazing shape, and so sad to hear it was damaged. Your pictures are great though, so at least, as you said, it is documented well.
  49. Thank you, racer4racer & austrohungaro!
  50. Thanks, Mark!
