I have been collecting Bohemian glass, mostly Rindskopf, Kralik and Loetz, for over twelve years. I find it so intriguing and beautiful. It all started when I saw (aI have been collecting Bohemian glass, mostly Rindskopf, Kralik and Loetz, for over twelve 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. This is so great to know! I have wondered about these ever since inky posted about them - good for you, antiquerose!! :)
  2. You are too funny, Rick! I am glad you have a good MIL - luckily, I do, too! :)
  3. Hi nw, thank you for your comment. I'll take a look at decors like this from Boston and Sandwich for comparison.
  4. Hi Rick, it is!! I love to be able to read any available details that are included, and it is great to get a really accurate date on a piece, too. :)
  5. Rick, thank you! I almost wonder if this could have been part of a biscuit jar because it is so plump and round. :)
  6. Rick, thanks so much - I agree, they do; they are actually quite thick enamel work, so that also adds to the perception of depth.
  7. inky, thanks so much - I'll try to get a picture of them all together soon! :)
  8. Aw, thanks, antiquerose! :)
  9. Oh - this is so beautiful! The soft colors are soooo lovely!!
  10. Wow!! Gorgeous, Ian. I have never seen a Kralik 'punched' with trails before - and the color is wonderful, too! Really terrific!
  11. Hee hee - Ian, Craig and I have talked about Welz shoe collections before - I'll send you links to a few more to help! :) Cool piece!
  12. Very nice, Alan - the shape on this one is wonderful!
  13. Thank you, inky! I like this shape, too - I haven't seen another like it, yet.
  14. Thanks so much, inky - it is my favorite of the three, too! :)
  15. Thank you, inky! :)
  16. Love the hedgehog, especially! :)
  17. They are beautiful together! I have never seen a dimpled for before, either - very nice!
  18. My pleasure, Peggy - thanks for looking! :)
  19. Thank you so much, sklo. I really like how there are so many different details all around the vase; I agree with your comment about the transparency. :)
  20. Thanks, Ivonne - I knew what you meant - and thank you! :)
  21. sklo, thanks so much. I always like the little touches on the back of vases like this, too - 'echo' is a perfect description.
  22. inky, just so, so beautiful. I adore the enamel work against such a delicate looking background. This one is perfect for you! :)
  23. Oh wow - this is a special one! Gorgeous colors - they work so well with the form!
  24. These are a great group - I like the tall, elegant shape of these. And I agree with sklo - I the green decor is one of my favorites. Thanks for the post!
  25. It has a Sevres feel to it, in my opinion...I like the shape!
  26. My pleasure! :)
  27. Lee - I believe I just solved the ID on this one - it is by Tischer of Karlsbad. I found an example by them not only in the same shape, but also an example in the same enameled background style (but b...
  28. Penny, I keep thinking of pretty pink lipstick when I see this little beauty! ;)
  29. It's a real beauty, vetraio! :)
  30. Oh Peggy, I only just saw this - what a great example! The swirls in the marbled glass are really beautiful, and you did a great job capturing it and the enamel work as well. I had such a hard time ph...
  31. Gorgeous!! I'd love to have ones like this in my collection! This color is just so fresh. :)
  32. Oh this is just beautiful, Marty! And I LOVE the shape - being narrow in alignment with the handle really makes sense for a decanter. A beauty!!
  33. You know, you say your grouping isn't artistic, but I think it is a wonderful photograph, and it does justice to them all. :)
  34. Sklo, wouldn't this be just beautiful filled with a small posey of violets, or a few delicate fern fronds, or other small flowers favored during the era it was made? I just love how intricate and deli...
  35. Beautiful, Marty! Harrach did beautiful things with Begonia leaves as a motif; this is just lovely!
  36. Thank you, Rick! I think so, too! :)
  37. Awww, thanks Mac! :)
  38. Very nice, Ian! I always like the acorn motif, but I really the amethyst vase on the far right - I have never seen that style before (fritillaries, I think?) They look terrific together.
  39. Thanks so much, Alan; I am glad you like it! :)
  40. Oooh - what a great one, Ian! This shape is very elegant. I agree the pink isn't necessarily a marker, but it is a rather unusual shade of pink with a hint of peach that I personally associate with so...
  41. My pleasure, Alan - it has been really nice seeing you develop such a lovely collection!
  42. Thank you, Lizzietish! :)
  43. Thanks Marty, it does! :)
  44. Thank you, sklo - that is a great way of looking at it! The flower color does echo the oil spot colors, doesn't it? :)
  45. Wow! That's a beauty, Peggy! And rare, too! What a terrific vase! :)
  46. Terrific article, Craig! :) And jericho, the thorn vase that I have, and attribute to Welz, also has a flashed finish - a bit unusual for thorn vases, I believe. Thanks for your comments on the thorns...
  47. Alan, I was admiring this one very much - I love the shape with the Pepita decor - wonderful!!
  48. Rick, thanks so much for your comment. It is one of the most iridescent pieces I own! :)
  49. Thanks so much, smiata - I am glad you like it! :)
  50. Thank you, kivatinitz!
