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. kivatinitz, thank you; I am glad you like it!
  2. Thanks so much, sklo! Natural light does wonders, as you recently mentioned! :)
  3. Beautiful! And your photos are terrific - you really have developed a skill, sklo. Your vases just glow in the photos, really showing the decors to their best advantage.
  4. Sklo, what a beauty! This decor is always a special one; I haven't seen this shape before, and together they are a wonderful combination. And your pictures are terrific, too!
  5. Beautiful - I always love blue and yellow together!
  6. Great photos, Shawn!
  7. Oh, what a beauty. A terrific example of the decor in a hard to find box - perfect!
  8. Ian, I always love your creative decor names. This is a great thorn - a big one, too!
  9. What a beautiful, beautiful vase. Everything about it is just stunning!
  10. Ian, the green striping and the 'm' crimp immediately brought Welz to my mind as well...
  11. swfinluv1, that description is perfect! Thanks so much for your imagery, and for your kind comments. :)
  12. What an elegant vase! I have always loved this form. How wonderful to have two but in different decors! Will you display them side by side?
  13. Thanks, Gruff!
  14. Thank you so much, sklo - I really do appreciate your thoughts about it. As you know, I couldn't wait for it to arrive so I could see it in person! :)
  15. Alan, I am glad you two are staying together! LOL! :) I am sure my husband thinks I am a bit crazy for other reasons - but glass would be a good excuse! ;)
  16. Alan, thank you for your kind comments. I am very lucky that my husband supports my habit! ;)
  17. Karen, thank you! It looks best with some light directly on it to show off both - I have a great spot for it on an old oak sideboard in our living room. :)
  18. Craig, thanks so much!! :)
  19. Roycroftbooksfromme1, thank you very much, I am glad you like it!
  20. What a beauty, Gruff. Yes, this is a Rindskopf in the 'Pepita' decor. I particularly like the shape of your vase - the twist is really nice. One of the things I like about Rindskopf is that they made ...
  21. sklo, a lot of the DEKs in this kind of style that are on CW don't have the numbering on them anymore. Let me go through my files & the CD and see if I can at least ID the vase shape as Loetz...
  22. Thank you! :)
  23. Sorry - do you also happen to know its height? Thank you!
  24. Wow, what a stunning vase. I haven't seen one like it. Do you know if the base glass is uv reactive? From the color, it looks like it could be. Thanks!!
  25. Ah, but this is surely Rindskopf! ;) I have the twin of your vase, and it is one of my favorites. A great one for your collection, Gruff!
  26. Sklo, for what it is worth, I saw your vase in the first image, and immediately thought it was a Loetz DEK. The style is just so similar. I am thinking that time will eventually tell. :)
  27. Sklo, I hadn't seen these until now - what a beautiful collection! Your examples show the beauty and diversity of Welz's design work so well.
  28. Wow - *triple* thorn vases? These are really special - what a terrific find! I have never seen any even close to these before! :)
  29. Thanks Craig, I am glad you think so! You know, I keep a file of images of martelé pieces in identifiable Rindskopf shapes; I actually don't have all that many, and I do keep an eye out for them. I co...
  30. Valentino, thank you very much!
  31. Karen, thank you so much for your kind comments! I have not been able to take photos of my vases where I usually do since January, so these were improvised on a stool - I am so glad they came out okay...
  32. Thanks so much Peggy -that's a really good point! :)
  33. Yes, I now think frit isn't what is being used here...mica seems much more likely. It is really an interesting decor!
  34. Gruff, that is why I like this forum so much - people here love seeing glass, and enjoy helping others learn. :)
  35. Craig, I think you may be right about the mica - I saved images from the auction that get pretty close - the white areas do look quite smooth - I'll send them to you.
  36. Beautiful, sklo! The third picture is terrific - I really like the diversity of form that it shows. And nice to have the original metal frogs, too!
  37. Thanks so much, Sean! :)
  38. Hi Ian, I agree with your last comment - I was going to say Kralik or possibly the other makers as well. I do love this one - it is beautiful.
  39. Gruff, sure thing! You have some really nice pieces! :)
  40. Hi Gruff - congratulations on getting this beauty! I was watching this pair for quite a while - they were very interesting to me. You know, I can't say 100% that they are Rindskopf, but I do believe y...
  41. Congratulations on having your article published, Craig. I know it took a lot of hard work to get there, and seeing all of the accompanying Welz images with your detailed article was really a treat. ...
  42. Wow! The colors and intricacy of this pattern are just stunning.
  43. Tomasz, this is a lovely vase for your collection, and your photography is so well done!
  44. How disappointing! I have had that happen before - you hope for lots of images, but get very little. I hope the history via the text is interesting to you!
  45. Very nice! I always enjoy seeing groupings like these - the varied forms are so interesting!
  46. Beautiful - the colors are so lovely and delicate. That ebay fairy really has a good eye, doesn't she? :)
  47. Hi kivatinitz, I agree with you - I am pretty sure these are all Daum, too. Thanks for sharing yours! I love the almost quilted shape - very unusual!
  48. Thanks, sklo; I wish it were mine, but it sold for a price out of my price range; I do own an orange one, though. :)
  49. Thanks so much antiquerose - you really made me laugh! :)
  50. I had to come back and look at this one again. The twist, the beautiful deep color and the iridescence - I just love it!
