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, Malkey!
  2. Thanks Bob! :)
  3. Bob - I hope it was okay to use your twist vase image in my post!
  4. Here is beyemvey's twist vase post: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/206356-loetz-twist-vase--perhaps-rindskopf-or?in=442
  5. Wow. The colors are amazing!! I would never have thought Kralik for it at a glance, but the stamp is definitely theirs! What a special piece to have in your collection!
  6. Poor Ebay pictures are a collector's friend! ;)
  7. Wow! I have only ever seen one of these before (Warren's) - this is a stunner! Thanks for sharing it! :)
  8. Oh - a really pretty one, Ian! :)
  9. I love your display! I didn't know you have a 'kitchenalia' collection - so fun!!
  10. What a beauty! These are some of my favorite Rindskopf vases. I have a cobalt pulled feather, but still hope to add a lighter blue like yours to my collection! :)
  11. Thanks so much for your kind comment, Malkey!
  12. This is decor & color is a favorite of mine - great shape, too!
  13. kivatinitz, thank you! I am glad you like it. You know, that is a possibility, but since the colors are enamel, I am not sure that they fade very much, at least that is my experience. The colors go so...
  14. Thank you very much, sklo. I think so, too! The artists who worked on vases like these were so skilled. It really is a work of art.
  15. Hi antonizz, I believe the vase is definitely Bohemian (thus the answers on glassmessages.com) and not French. The cut top, type of glass, and decoration all point to it being Bohemian. Quite a few m...
  16. Gorgeous picture of a gorgeous martelé rose bowl! I'd go with Kralik on this one, myself. :)
  17. Wow - thanks so much for sharing these; it is amazing that you found them and kept them all those years. Thank goodness, for history's sake! :)
  18. From what I have seen, Welz's variations are almost endless - quite different from the way other companies worked. Thanks for always pointing out the differences between your vases. Perhaps they gave ...
  19. Beautiful, sklo! Your gorgeous Welz collection grows and grows! :)
  20. A beautiful, tapered form - very elegant!
  21. Ooooh - nice to see a pink and green aventurine in this form! It's a beauty! :)
  22. Malkey, I actually believe this decor is currently attributed to Harrach, although there may be some shape evidence that these are actually by Rindskopf (as yet, just a theory.) You can see similar va...
  23. Oh Malkey, this is one amazing vase! It is beautiful against the red sunset!
  24. Thanks! :)
  25. One quick question - what is the glass color name of the Loetz on the left? Thanks!
  26. Mac, the three together in your last photo show each one to its best advantage - they just play off of one another! Your new vase is beautiful - I can't believe you found two! :)
  27. Hi Malkey, it is not a piece by Rindskopf; I haven't seen the decor before - is it possible to post a picture of the base?
  28. Warren, as you already know, I think these vases are amazing, and a very, very special find. I have wanted to see the labels on the Passau piece for years, so thanks to you and to Deb for finally gett...
  29. beyemvey, isn't it wonderful to have a spouse who supports your obsession? :)
  30. beyemvey, I think we do! Rindskopf is a major area of collecting for me; I am always on the hunt. :) You have quite a few beautiful examples; I am glad you have been posting them for all to see!
  31. Okay, now I am just drooling! It is rare to find that shape in the honeycomb decor, and you have a pair! Thanks so much for sharing them! :)
  32. What a beauty! I am always drawn to their satin flowers, for some reason. Thanks so much for sharing it! :)
  33. Lovely example!! (And a terrific picture!) This Kralik decor is called 'Helios', by the way. :)
  34. What a gorgeous example! I love this decor. I have a bowl in the same shape but in a deep peach, but I love the pink! Your bowl also has a really lovely mottling to the iridescence - beautiful!
  35. Oh Rick, I just saw this one - stunning!!! I am so glad you found one for your wonderful collection!
  36. This is gorgeous - the undulating handles are just wonderful!
  37. Okay, this pale opalescent color is just gorgeous! It really sets off the other colors so well. For some reason it just draws in the eyes. It is interesting that the green in the first one is aventuri...
  38. Who could pass this one up? :) I really like the shape of these two, Alan.
  39. Very nice colors - I especially like the Robin's egg blue. Welz's use of color is just so distinctive, isn't it?
  40. kivatinitz, thank you!
  41. Thanks so much, sklo. I like how organic they feel, too!
  42. Hi OneGoodFind, thanks for taking a look, I am glad you like this one! :)
  43. Oooh - what a great form!
  44. A beautiful Rindskopf - I really like the colors on this one! And I agree - what great setting! Phil, I had no idea you were in Liverpool; my Dad is Liverpudlian, too! :)
  45. Hi Warren, it is a lovely decor - I know you have quite a Schliersee collection. They did beautiful work!
  46. Alan (& Warren) here is another example of this shape by Glasfabrik Schliersee (not Heckert as attributed!) https://new.liveauctioneers.com/item/31257394_vase-c1900
  47. beyemvey, I want to correct my comment #14 - the vase I linked to (https://new.liveauctioneers.com/item/31257394_vase-c1900) was attributed to F. Heckert, but it is actually by Glasfabrik Schliersee. :)
  48. Just a beautiful, beautiful vase. And yes, I recognize your feelings all too well! :)
  49. This is a beauty, Alan. I always love to see silver overlays like this! I just won a vase in a similar shape at auction (a different decor entirely), and hope to post it when it arrives. :)
  50. beyemvey, they are my favorite, too!
