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. Jim, what a beautiful example of Welz in the rainbow honeycomb decor. Your lamp is just gorgeous - really a wonderful piece of glass.
  2. Inky, you are so sweet, thank you! :)
  3. Lisa, you certainly are! :) The vase was tough to photograph and to get the pink tones to look correct with my camera, but after a second try I got it - the photos show the accurate coloring. Not quit...
  4. Interesting information - thanks, Lee!
  5. Lisa, thank you, and oh wow! I can't believe it - I didn't think many people saw the listing. If you saw this and thought Bohemian, you are getting scarily good, very fast! (The rather fuzzy pictures ...
  6. Ian, I believe your vase may be Harrach. I have seen this style of decor from them before - here is an example: http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/1275782
  7. Thanks Lee! I know you love the pink! :)
  8. So cheerful - love it! :)
  9. ...and I am not loving this post, okay?
  10. 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.
  11. You have some beauties! What a great collection!
  12. Very nice, Ian! I love the Welz Rainbow Honeycomb decor. The hobnails are unusual!
  13. Thanks, Mac!
  14. Gorgeous, Tomasz!
  15. I'm so glad you got it, Lee! :)
  16. Oh inky, thank you. I know you do! ;)
  17. Lisa, this is one of my favorite Goldberg patterns - I love the sort of dandelion sunbursts against the egg-shaped vase - gorgeous!
  18. I agree; these vases are often mis-attributed to Stevens & Williams (actually, all the time!), but are actually believed to be by Harrach.
  19. Lisa, thank you for your very kind comment!
  20. Thank you, Lisa - it was one of my lucky finds! :)
  21. Thanks so much, antiquerose & Lee!
  22. inky, thanks so much. I knew when I saw it that it was a special one. My Rindskopf love keeps growing! ;)
  23. 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...
  24. Very pretty! Love the shape and bit of sparkle!
  25. 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...
  26. 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...
  27. 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!
  28. Thank you, shareurpassion, you are very kind! :)
  29. Thank you, shareurpassion!
  30. TableauxArts, yes, it will be very welcome - I particularly collect Rindskopf, and this is a beauty. Thank you! :)
  31. Smiata, I believe your vase is Rindskopf; I have one in the same decor and shape, but smaller. I love the mount it has!
  32. Oh, those are beauties!
  33. 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.
  34. Thank you, racer4racer & austrohungaro!
  35. Thanks, Mark!
  36. Oh - how sweet! Thank you Aleen! Sorry I mis-read your name, and thank you!
  37. Wow - in Minnesota - terrific finds! Good for you! I love the one with the metal mount.
  38. Thank you, Lee - you are lightning fast! ;)
  39. Very pretty - it feels Bohemian to me too, Scott. :)
  40. Wow inky - that is a beautiful vase - very dark and mysterious in color! Just gorgeous!
  41. I have seen vases with this decoration attributed to Fritz Heckert.
  42. ...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...
  43. 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....
  44. I love the last picture, Lee. You have quite a serpent collection now! They look terrific together! :)
  45. Thank you, nutsabotas6!
  46. Great vases, Lisa! They are lovely, and great additions to your collection! :)
  47. austrohungaro, thank you!
  48. Thanks inky, that is about my price range, too! ;)
  49. 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.
  50. Love this one, Ian!!
