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. I wanted to add, by the way, that one of the things I look for in a piece that I feel may be Welz is the style of 'spatter'. In a lot of the Bohemian 'end of day' or 'spatter' vases the color accents ...
  2. Thanks, Lisa! I treasure them as a memory of a great trip, too! :)
  3. Welzebub, thank you for clearly stating one of the issues that I find so frustrating about the constant questioning of Welz attributions. I believe in factual, careful comparisons of decors and shapes...
  4. The rose frog looks very nice on the cranberry bowl - great idea!
  5. Hi Lisa - I love the colors on this one! I was going to mention what yesterdays glass says above about the acid mark, and the decor. Of the Welz vases I have, all have an acid mark in the same size an...
  6. Terrific find, Craig - and thank you for a very clear translation of the Passau text - it is one of the best I have seen, and really describes some of their early history and production. This is reall...
  7. Wow - what a special find. Stunning.
  8. Thanks so much, FanciGirl!
  9. Very pretty, Fran!
  10. I just love this one - a very unusual color combination, and beautifully done. Awesome!
  11. That's a great idea, smiata, thank you! :)
  12. Thank you, nutsabotas6!
  13. I sure will! :)
  14. H Rick, a friend just told me that the smallest piece is a French salt by Monot Stumpf.
  15. Hi Rick, no, it was lot 0217, an 8" tall Rindskopf that was weirdly (at least to my mind) attributed to Imperial. The green vase you mention was definitely Rindskopf, too. Luckily, I got mine for only...
  16. Oh - you won the lot! I was watching this one - I thought it had a very interesting selection of glass. Very nice pieces - good for you! I have always wanted a Loetz in the shape of the second vase. I...
  17. In discussing these vases with a friend, he pointed out that the martele pattern on these vases is a bit different from the usually tighter and more regular pattern seen on Kralik martele vases. Some ...
  18. What terrific finds! Thank you for sharing this glass history with us all!
  19. Here is a link to mine: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/126145-bohemian-iridescent-molded-bubbles-vas?in=user
  20. Ian, this is SO cool! I posted the same vase, but in green a few months ago, as did another CW member. I have been told it is by Kralik. Love the decor on yours! I think it reminds me of either seed p...
  21. Very pretty! Lee, what color is the glass itself? Just wondering! :)
  22. I agree with inky - the blue color is definitely typical of Kralik - not a color that Rindskopf used, I believe. What a gorgeous pair - love them! :)
  23. Thanks Lisa, I'll check it out! :)
  24. sklo42, thanks so much for your kind comment; I was lucky to find them! :)
  25. They look really beautiful together, Lisa - such a nice group! :)
  26. inky, I just love it!! What a gorgeous, dramatic vase! :)
  27. Welz has been 'documented' just as well as Rindskopf and some other well known Bohemian glass houses have been - it is strange to single them out. I personally don't see these vases as being Welz, but...
  28. Great color!
  29. A beauty, Lisa! I planned to bid on this but missed my chance - I had a feeling it went to you! :) I haven't seen too many Goldbergs like this in amethyst, too - a great find!
  30. Very good to know - thanks!
  31. Here's a link to my older post about the vase: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/108549-hanging-or-mounted-three-handled-vase
  32. Beautiful! Lee, as I mentioned on FB, I have the same vase, but in a golden color, with an acid-etched pattern of oak leaves. I have never been able to pinpoint a maker, so I'd love to hear if you are...
  33. Try buying a frog with an antique/vintage piece of cut glass (ie a cut glass rose bowl) - they are usually a lot less money than the iridescent bases, but have the same or very similar frogs...
  34. Great one, Lisa! I love the coloring. :)
  35. Wow - I have never seen this décor before, Mac - what a beautiful vase.
  36. Thank you, Vintagefran - me too! :)
  37. Thank you, inky! :)
  38. So gorgeous!! I can't believe you were able to find the acorn top!
  39. Thanks so much - I will do that! :)
  40. Sure thing, Marty! :)
  41. Lee, I LOVE the cup! I have never seen one before - what a great form! What a coincidence, too! :)
  42. Scott, I can understand wanting to get home as soon as possible! Now when you do go, it will be at your leisure. :)
  43. Thanks Scott! You should go if you can! :)
  44. What a sweet & special gift! I'd say Kralik, too - and a very pretty one. :)
  45. Just gorgeous, Mac!!
  46. Sorry, Ian - your vase looked like a soft crackle to me, until I zoomed in the pics just now. What a cool pattern!
  47. 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...
  48. 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! :)
  49. 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...
  50. Oooooooh - I love this one!!
