I have been collecting Bohemian glass, mostly Rindskopf, Kralik and Loetz, for over twelve years. I find it so intriguing and beautiful. It all started when I saw (aI have been collecting Bohemian glass, mostly Rindskopf, Kralik and Loetz, for over twelve 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. Sklo, thank you very much for your kind comment!
  2. Oh, these are just so delicate and pretty - like spring bulbs coming up in bloom. Thank you for sharing them! :)
  3. What a beauty, Rose! It is in such gorgeous condition and as you say - BIG! BBB for me, too! :)
  4. Maybe it says 'Depose France'! :)
  5. Peggy, thanks so much. I really like the contrast, too, and the first image is my favorite as well. :)
  6. Oh, I wish I had a Salvation Army like yours nearby! Mike, that is such a kind compliment, thank you. You know, I have been trying to learn the differences between Bohemian and French glass by doing a...
  7. If you happen to unpack them and find that it says 'Czechoslovakia' than I am definitely wrong here! ;)
  8. Thanks, twentiethe, good to know. I'll have to go look through some Kralik shapes again.
  9. Mike, is it just my imagination, or does the third picture have writing on it below the number? It looks like it could...
  10. Such a beautiful pair! It can be really hard to tell the difference between Moser and Legras/Mont Joye sometimes...but based on the glass color, and the pinterest example you gave (which is Legras), I...
  11. Hi Mike, isn't it great that there are old catalogs, so we actually get to know the names? You know, I took a look at your lovely vase pair - I do think they are likely Legras, too. The pinterest link...
  12. Thanks! I am really pleased with it - I think it may just need some bright daffodils in it for a little while! :)
  13. A lovely vase, Peggy. Again, your photography is terrific - I especially like the group shot! :)
  14. Thanks, Scott! :)
  15. Hi Mike, great finds from Savers! Your spatter vase is Legras; I have a similar one in the same shape and color way. It is shown in a 1893 Legras catalog as the 'Poussin' model, which translates as 'c...
  16. I want to say that I am quite sure that the author of this post knows all about the Passau Glass Museum...and is, as many people are, aware that there are books on bohemian glass published by the muse...
  17. ...by the way, your photos keep getting better and better! Just lovely.
  18. sklo, this vase is just stunning; I would be so proud to own it. Also, I was impressed with the very logical and well-thought out way you presented your observations about the vase, and why you attrib...
  19. Tomasz, the indented patterning around each lobe is so beautiful - it really a nice detail to have with that gorgeous iridescent swirl. What a stunning vase!
  20. Aw, I am so glad I was able to help! It is such a beautiful and unusual vase. You have given us all so much benefit from your ceaseless Welz research, and from your glass knowledge in general. I had m...
  21. I agree, this is a great book, and well worth the price. I look through it quite often. Thanks for posting about it!
  22. Ian, I think the link between epergnes and these floriform tubes is quite close, too. I have seen epergnes pieces with thorns and applied flowers, using pretty much the same techniques for both. I th...
  23. What a beauty, Peggy. One of the prettiest I have seen! :)
  24. Pretty, pretty, pretty! Perfect for the coming spring! I think they are a lovely pair, Peggy.
  25. I love this shape, Craig - it is so clean lined with the ribbing (and no handle) and the colors just make it feel even fresher. What a great piece!
  26. Lovely, Rose! Such a pretty vase; I have always seen this decor attributed to Kralik, and this is a great example! :)
  27. Lovely, Alan - and what a steal for $4! :)
  28. Oh my gosh, Peggy - how lovely is this one? And I agree with Karen - so feminine! The brass frog is its crowning glory. I just love it!
  29. Oh no - right before the holidays! I am glad to hear you are doing better! :)
  30. Oh no! I hope you are okay Peggy - that can't be fun. I hope it heals up quickly!
  31. Interesting!
  32. Craig, I completely agree with you, and I think your last paragraph about the pomegranate and the pumpkin is very telling. I was going with the commonly accepted terminology, but have also wondered ab...
  33. Hi Alan, personally, I believe your vase is Pepita. Grenada is very much more orange in comparison; I have a Grenada, and it is an orange red to raspberry color vs. the deep blood red of Pepita. Here ...
  34. glassiegirl, yes, I believe it is the same shape - thanks for sharing it! This is an excellent example of why the old attributions of this style of glass to 'Roessler' are incorrect, in my opinion. Th...
  35. I have to agree with Karen! :)
  36. I also believe it is actually Italian, not French...
  37. Ian, you perfectly voiced something I have always felt about the Loetz version of this decor - somehow it does remind me of early prehistoric stone carvings, but the Welz version doesn't elicit the sa...
  38. Very pretty; I love the blue and the yellow. I agree with Vetraio; definitely Bohemian, and Egermann is a good firm to look into.
  39. ...my reasoning is based on both the color, and on how the pulled decor is done...much more Kralik in style than Heckert's Changeant, in my opinion...
  40. I agree with Tomasz - a Kralik Aquagold vote here, too. :)
  41. Wonderful news, Craig. I love both of these decors, and to be able to tie them into factory literature is terrific. Congrats!! :)
  42. Hi Fran, thanks so much! You are right - it is Rindskopf's Grenada, and one of my favorite vases, too. I did double check it for uv reactivity with my black light, but there was no green glow, so I do...
  43. ...and Karen, he is lovely - I am so very lucky!! :)
  44. Thanks so much, kivatinitz!
  45. Great, thanks! :)
  46. ...by the way, how tall is it? Thanks!
  47. A very pretty example! It is nice to find the snake with no damage, too!
  48. Thanks, Rick! It is all the shades of mossy, isn't it? :) It will be especially nice to look at when our dry California summer returns!
  49. Thank you, racer4racer - that is what I love about it as well! And the color combination is so unexpected (to me, anyway) for a vase that is about 140 years old, too!
  50. Thanks so much, nutsabotas6; I am glad you like it!
