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. So cheerful - love it! :)
  2. ...and I am not loving this post, okay?
  3. 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.
  4. You have some beauties! What a great collection!
  5. Very nice, Ian! I love the Welz Rainbow Honeycomb decor. The hobnails are unusual!
  6. Thanks, Mac!
  7. Gorgeous, Tomasz!
  8. I'm so glad you got it, Lee! :)
  9. Oh inky, thank you. I know you do! ;)
  10. Lisa, this is one of my favorite Goldberg patterns - I love the sort of dandelion sunbursts against the egg-shaped vase - gorgeous!
  11. I agree; these vases are often mis-attributed to Stevens & Williams (actually, all the time!), but are actually believed to be by Harrach.
  12. Lisa, thank you for your very kind comment!
  13. Thank you, Lisa - it was one of my lucky finds! :)
  14. Thanks so much, antiquerose & Lee!
  15. inky, thanks so much. I knew when I saw it that it was a special one. My Rindskopf love keeps growing! ;)
  16. 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...
  17. Very pretty! Love the shape and bit of sparkle!
  18. 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...
  19. 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...
  20. 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!
  21. Thank you, shareurpassion, you are very kind! :)
  22. Thank you, shareurpassion!
  23. TableauxArts, yes, it will be very welcome - I particularly collect Rindskopf, and this is a beauty. Thank you! :)
  24. Smiata, I believe your vase is Rindskopf; I have one in the same decor and shape, but smaller. I love the mount it has!
  25. Oh, those are beauties!
  26. 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.
  27. Thank you, racer4racer & austrohungaro!
  28. Thanks, Mark!
  29. Oh - how sweet! Thank you Aleen! Sorry I mis-read your name, and thank you!
  30. Wow - in Minnesota - terrific finds! Good for you! I love the one with the metal mount.
  31. Thank you, Lee - you are lightning fast! ;)
  32. Very pretty - it feels Bohemian to me too, Scott. :)
  33. Wow inky - that is a beautiful vase - very dark and mysterious in color! Just gorgeous!
  34. I have seen vases with this decoration attributed to Fritz Heckert.
  35. ...actually, about the martele...on a second look, I agree that this does look a bit too regular for martele, which is usually a more random hammered look. Very close, but perhaps a molded diamond pat...
  36. Ian, I agree with Gary about it being Kralik Martele based on the vase shape and decor. And wow, it is a gorgeous one. I have not seen that color before, or one with such a lovely bronze/copper mount....
  37. I love the last picture, Lee. You have quite a serpent collection now! They look terrific together! :)
  38. Thank you, nutsabotas6!
  39. Great vases, Lisa! They are lovely, and great additions to your collection! :)
  40. austrohungaro, thank you!
  41. Thanks inky, that is about my price range, too! ;)
  42. That is an unusual frog; I haven't seen one quite like it before. It goes so well with the lovely pale green martele, too.
  43. Love this one, Ian!!
  44. inky, that is great news! They are wonderful vases. You have such good taste in glass, so why not in silver, too? :) I saw your post when I woke up this morning, so it was a fun mystery to try to solv...
  45. smiata, thank you! :)
  46. Thank you, smiata!
  47. inky, I think I may have it - at least quite a bit of it, thanks to Elisabethan's hint about Slovakia...according to an article I'll list below, A.E. stands for Silver Plated Alpaca silver (Nickle Sil...
  48. inky, this is one of the nicest Kralik applied floriforms I have seen; the flower is so elegant and has such a great form - beautiful!
  49. What a beautiful color! Love it! :)
  50. Thank you very much, loup70.
