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. Sean, thank you! :)
  2. Sean, thanks so much. I DO need to take more pictures - this was the only one that turned out all right from my initial 'photo session' of the vase! :)
  3. Thanks Kyle! I know! ;) But my Welz collection has grown to ten+ pieces now, thanks to all of Craig's hard work and all of the Welz eye candy posted around here!
  4. Mac, what a beautiful vase! And Craig, very well said, too.
  5. It is a really special piece, Marty! :)
  6. ...the square base and feet also point more to Riedel, in my opinion. :)
  7. Gorgeous, Marty! I have a collection of Riedel vases, and the bows and swags of tiny leaves is a motif used on many of them (and done in the same enameling style as yours) - I personally would go with...
  8. Ooops - sorry - just read your info about the DEK - interesting to hear.
  9. Congrats, Lee - it is a Loetz! You have a good eye! I love the shape. Does Warren happen to think it was decorated by Loetz as well, or perhaps by another company who used the vase as a blank? Thanks!
  10. Thanks, Ian - that is a good description of the cut & polished/ground rim. Alan, the other type of rim you see in Bohemian glass is fire polished, where the cut rim is made smooth by briefly re-fi...
  11. What an awesome post! I had fun reading it, just following your logic - and it makes sense to me! I have always wondered about these long-necked vases, and seeing the same collar on vases in a known W...
  12. Thanks, Alan. The rim doesn't look cut and polished to me from the picture. The vase shape could be Bohemian, but the rim style and white interior makes me wonder about it...perhaps it is Italian? Hop...
  13. Hi Alan, sorry, I meant looking down on the rim? I guess I was trying to tell from the first picture if the rim was cut and ground, or not...can you tell? Thanks! :)
  14. Hi Alan, the shape of your vase is very nice. Would you be able to post a picture of the rim of the vase? That may help in identification. :)
  15. Gorgeous, Mac!!
  16. inky, thank you! :)
  17. Red currants? And just gorgeous, inky! :)
  18. Sklo42, Fran & Rick, thanks so much! :)
  19. Thanks, Craig! :)
  20. What a beautiful, beautiful piece!
  21. Thanks, Alfredo. I'll keep an eye out for future developments on this.
  22. Hi Alfredo, based on your new attribution of this shape to PK, how does this affect the Kralik Banded decor attribution, shown in the same inkwell shape on your site, https://sites.google.com/site/loe...
  23. Very pretty, Lee!
  24. Thanks, Alfredo. I wish you luck in finding the 13" example.
  25. kivatinitz, thank you! :)
  26. The vases in the first image are gorgeous - I just love the form, and hope to add one to my collection one day! Thanks so much for information about them. I really enjoy seeing the relationships betwe...
  27. And thanks for the additional info, Craig!
  28. Great vases, Ian - I really like the clear ones - very different! I have never seen a deco style like that with engraving. Welz continues to surprise me! :)
  29. Thanks so much, kivatinitz!
  30. Thank you, Craig. You are always a font of glass knowledge! :)
  31. Craig, thanks so much for the information! That explains perfectly how they did the threading on the fan shape. I was wondering about that part, especially. It would be so neat if an old glass threadi...
  32. I need to ask - how on earth did they do such perfect spiral work? It is amazing. I really wonder how they did it.
  33. Thanks, Kyle! :)
  34. Great vases, Craig. I especially like the amethyst with the applied white edge and coil - a very unusual color combination!
  35. I had no idea that Welz did this type of decor - just fascinating. The more I learn about them, the more I am impressed by their breadth of design.
  36. Craig, I can't even imagine what that was like for you. I think your table and jewelry ideas are great, and would give new life to the glass so it could be appreciated once again. Good luck!
  37. Beautiful - I just love these. There is such an amazing variety of shape, color and texture!
  38. Happy New year! Your hard work regarding Welz has been a huge benefit to the Bohemian glass collecting community, and I wish you much success and more special discoveries in the new year! :)
  39. Thanks, inky! I always feel the same about yours, too! ;)
  40. Lovely shape and color!
  41. Sure thing! Goldberg used a lot of different motifs on their vases of this style; I have a sweet pea vase, and one with unidentifiable flowers and a wandering vine pattern - I also really like their v...
  42. Here is Ian's vase: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/142908-blue-silver-enamelled-bud-vase?in=442
  43. sklo42, your lovely little vase is by Carl Goldberg - and the silver is in very good condition, too! The acorn motif is one of my favorites. If you search on CW, you will see quite a few good examples...
  44. Craig, thanks so much; I was really spoiled! :)
  45. Sean, thank you!
  46. Sklo42, thanks so much! :)
  47. Thank you, melaniej! :)
  48. Just beautiful, Marty!
  49. sklo42, happy New Year to you, too! I am looking forward to seeing your new additions in 2015!
  50. Kivatinitz, thank you, and happy New Year to you, too! :)
