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. Terrific piece, Peggy! I think it is an arum, too. Or possibly a Dracunculus vulgaris (Voodoo Lily) due to the crimped flat edge. And quite an unusual floriform; I have never seen one like this befor...
  2. I agree, Peggy - terrific vase, and your pictures are great! :)
  3. What a beautifully colored floriform, Marty - it's a great one for your collection! :)
  4. Very pretty, Fran! :)
  5. Mac, you really are a master at photographing glass - just amazing pictures.
  6. Alan, thank you! :)
  7. Thanks very much, Rick. I am glad you like it! :)
  8. Ian, thanks so much! :)
  9. Peggy, I am happy to take the blame! ;) There is something addicting about these - they are so very elegant and the quality of enamel work is usually so high - they are just a pleasure to look at.
  10. Hi kivatinitz, thank you very much! I have seen your vase - it is lovely. I have never seen that particular shape before in a vase by Rindskopf, so I am hesitant to say it is by them. Also, the marbli...
  11. My pleasure! :)
  12. Thanks so much, Ernie! :)
  13. Ack - the last part of my post was messed up! :)
  14. This is a Russian hand-wrought brass pitcher, dating to Tsarist, pre-revolutionary Russia - pre 1918. The mark shows the Russian royal eagle, and you can often read in Cyrillic where it was made at (...
  15. Hi Mac, you are too kind! I am glad you like it! You have quite a few really beautiful Rindskopfs in your collection, too - your pictures of them really do them justice, and I could look at them over ...
  16. racer4racer, thanks so much for your kind comment!
  17. Peggy, thank you! I am so glad you like it! It is one of my new favorites. :)
  18. Zowie, thank you for taking a look! :)
  19. A very nice collection! I especially like the yellow and greenish-blue example.
  20. Oh, yes - Harrach! And what a beautiful example, too! I love this one - and it is in terrific condition, too. I am always looking for examples of these ball-footed vases. What a beautiful addition to...
  21. ...I must have seen a similar one at auction lately. Either way, it is quite unusual! :)
  22. Ah, thank you! :)
  23. Yep! What a beauty! :)
  24. Wow! These are terrific, Peggy! I have never seen one in this decor before, either. Didn't Welz have fun with unusual shapes? I think they really had a playful aspect to their work.
  25. Nice one, Lee - I almost went for this one, too! :)
  26. Thanks, Warren - that sounds like a good explanation to me. I just love how the decoration seems to fade into the beautiful maroon color towards the top of the vase; it is very elegant.
  27. Hi Ivonne, sure thing - here they are: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/148601-welz-rainbow-decoupage-footed-vase-pai :)
  28. I love the lobed rims, Ivonne. I have two very similar Welz vases (same decor, body & feet) but the rims are round. Yours is very pretty!
  29. How do you think they applied the decoration? Was it a sort of resist before they applied some of the the salts for the iridescence?
  30. Warren, this one is really, really special - just gorgeous.
  31. Love this one - thanks for sharing it! :)
  32. Lee, what is a Fußvase? :)
  33. Ian, your vase is absolutely gorgeous!! Really, really a special one.
  34. ...I wanted to add that the base on this big guy is 5 1/2" across, making it have a very big presence/footprint!
  35. Here is an example on CW of a similar Kralik vase with the same body form, but different decor: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/164576-kralik-spatter-floriform-with-leaves?in=442
  36. Alan, thanks so much for your kind comment! :)
  37. Hi Rick, thank you! :) Yes, aside from some martele examples I have (which are iridescent and frosted in appearance, but on a body of clear glass) I think that this is my only one. I have so far only ...
  38. Ian, the enameling against the pink on this one make your description even more fitting! I like to display deeply hued sweet peas in mine - I think the aunts & grannies would have, too. :)
  39. Great information - and very helpful comparison pictures, too!
  40. What a beauty, Rick! A wonderful example for your collection!
  41. I haven't seen anything like it before, Lee. I love the enamel work, which I have seen on some vases in very different style from this one; this is a very interesting vase! What a great find! :)
  42. I like those daisies - unusual! What a nice set!
  43. Oh wow - what an amazing grouping, and such a nice addition! Really, really great glass, sklo!
  44. Just beautiful, Mac - and as usual, your photographs are wonderful, too!
  45. It's a beauty, Lee! Great pictures! :)
  46. Really terrific, Mac!!
  47. Sorry - just to be clear, I did mean the Germans as a nation, but on the basis of who was in power, I referred to the Nazi's.
  48. I am very curious - how is it known that the Kralik family aligned themselves with the Nazi's during the war? I know a lot of companies were nationalized and had no choice in the matter - just curious...
  49. Great pictures, Ian - so sunny & bright!
  50. Hi Rick, thanks so much - I am glad you like it! :)
