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. Peggy, the colors on your basket are so lovely - I think the addition of the blue just makes it pop! :)
  2. Lee, that is one amazing vase. The colors are stunning - just WOW!
  3. Peggy and Rose, thanks so much! :)
  4. That is just an amazing set - Wow!!
  5. Aww, thanks Ian! :)
  6. ..by the way, if you google "kralik pearlescent lobed vase" you can see some other similar examples. :)
  7. Hi Fran, Kralik did some vases like these; I have seen very similar vases by them in both the pearlescent color like yours and in iridescent green. Some have sterling silver collars, and some do not. ...
  8. Wow - a beauty, Peggy! This style looks so modern to me, and yet has the old deco feel at the same time (if that makes any sense!)
  9. Beautiful!!
  10. Thanks, Lisa. Looking forward to seeing yours!
  11. Very nice vase, Lisa. The brown is a more unusual color of aventurine. I would consider Harrach as a maker for this one, based on the shape and enamel work. A great find!
  12. Oh, Marty - this is just, just stunning!! Wow!!
  13. Thank you so much, Alan & Rick!
  14. Book, book, book! :)
  15. Thanks, surfdub66!
  16. Peggy, thanks so much! I was surprised to find one so tiny in comparison to my other much larger vases, too. :)
  17. I love to learn about the history of the glass we collect, and this is fascinating. Thanks so much for sharing it!!
  18. Here is a link to a previous post showing an example of the Goldberg label: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/137311-carl-goldberg-enameled-iris-vase
  19. Very nice, Rick! And my thoughts agree with what Craig said, although he is much more detailed and knowledgeable about the marks than I am. :)
  20. That's a nice one, Ian. I have always liked this pattern, and have two myself. I still find it interesting to see how much the pattern on these can vary from vase to vase so much. http://www.collector...
  21. Gorgeous, Tomasz!!
  22. Thanks, inky! I wonder! ;)
  23. Great to know!
  24. Peggy, I do think the iridescence on your vase is quite a bit less common. And Welz pieces with iridescence have a really lovely golden sheen; you have quite a beauty there! :)
  25. I have slightly different thoughts on this vase than Kai...while the pattern reminds me of similar patterns I have seen on some teal-green vases by Rindskopf, I also see some things that make me think...
  26. Gorgeous, Mac!!
  27. Thanks, Rick! :)
  28. Very nice, Lee!! :)
  29. Peggy, I love the feeling of 'rescuing' a vase, too! And what a great one to save from obscurity! :)
  30. Peggy, what a beauty!!
  31. Wow - a vase you can take a 'selfie' in! ;) Very nice, Ian! :)
  32. Thanks Marty! I hope you find one! :)
  33. Peggy, thanks so much! :)
  34. Thank you Darlie & magdalenagirl; I have some forget-me-nots that are blooming in the garden right now, too! :)
  35. Thanks so much, Kevin! :)
  36. FanciGirl, inky, Rick & sklo, thanks so much! I really do like the honeycomb decor - the texture really helps to show off the iridescence. And inky, I agree, the wear on the collar doesn't bother me, ...
  37. Ooooh - a gorgeous one, Rick! I am so glad you decided to keep it!! :)
  38. Happy belated Easter to you, too, Ian! I also love Cadbury's - especially their mini eggs, so thank you for the 'product placement' as well as the beautiful glass! ;)
  39. This is really a beauty!!
  40. What a lovely basket - I have never seen one in these colors before, either, but I have to agree that the style and the striping certainly feel Welz-like to me, too!
  41. Rick, this is really a beauty - thanks for sharing it!!
  42. I agree with the others above; both Rindskopf and Harrach did an oxblood and white decor like this, but I have only seen the satin finished version by Rindskopf...
  43. What a beautiful pair, Peggy! :)
  44. Beautiful, Ian. And I agree with you - so many pieces of Welz seem to be ID'd as Stevens & Williams in the UK.
  45. inky, that is an amazing vase - very special. And what terrific condition it is in, too! It is far older than any pieces I have in my collection! ;) You have such a great eye for these things!
  46. Thank you, Warren!
  47. Thank you very much, Peggy, Tomasz & Alan!
  48. Thanks so much, Craig! :)
  49. Thanks, Lee! :)
  50. I'd say for $14.99 that you got a great deal, Alan! ;)
