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. What a beautiful pair of vases! They are gorgeous. And following your logic, it also makes sense to me that they are a well-done decor shift by Kralik; thanks for explaining this debate so clearly.
  2. So bright, sunny & cheerful!! :)
  3. Very pretty, sklo! The enamel work is quite different. It could be a Loetz blank, decorated by another company. (It looks a lot like other Loetz rose bowls I have seen that have DEKs...) I have two v...
  4. ...and I meant to say that I love this decor on your lidded bowl! :)
  5. I have a small vase in the same decor as your bowl (frosted, with pink threading); I have always thought mine was Kralik, but it could of course be another maker. here's a picture of mine: http://s124...
  6. inky, these are just so beautiful. How interesting that the base is glass! They are a very special pair, for sure. Good for you!!
  7. I had to read this article, think about it, and read it again. Really a well-written article, and very thought provoking. As usual, your 'thought map' illustrations are terrific!
  8. Tom - WOW!! Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful collection, and as always, in such artistic photographs. It really makes me appreciate the variety of Welz's production, and how unique there w...
  9. Inky, thanks so much! :)
  10. Rick - wow - the shape is really special. I couldn't think of a nicer example of Corrugated to own! :)
  11. Oooh - what a nice example, Dave! Great find! :)
  12. Peggy, I have always loved the form of these bowls, and hope to add one to my collection someday. It is great to see the comparison between the large and the small vases you have - thanks for sharing ...
  13. Rick, thanks so much! It is a nice little vase - I have always liked the Oceanik decor. :)
  14. kivatinitz, Shawn & Paul, thank you all so much! :)
  15. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.
  16. This is a beauty, Lee - I love the form & color - good for you!! :)
  17. Thanks, Kyle! :)
  18. Craig, I just *knew* Welz did flower work, and know you have proof! Awesome! Sitting in front of my right now is my pink 'vertical lines' Welz fan vase, and the shape is undoubtedly the same. Congrats...
  19. Thanks so much, Joey! :)
  20. Thanks for sharing this special vase - I was not aware of this decor before. It is definitely a jewel in your collection! :)
  21. I was watching this one, too, Warren - congrats! Your pictures of it are lovely - what a beauty!
  22. Very beautiful, Alan. The red makes it extra special!
  23. Thank you, Kyle! :)
  24. Oh, I love these with the silver against the acid cut back - very nice, Lee! :)
  25. Beautiful!!
  26. These are just gorgeous, Warren.
  27. Shawn, I have been collecting a file of images of floriforms for about a year and a half now, and the range of forms and colors is truly amazing. I think the glass makers really really had fun with th...
  28. Thanks Katherine, similar colors, aren't they?
  29. Hi Shawn, thank you! You know, your comment on my floriform being vaseline glass made me go check this bowl this evening - no UV reactivity on this one. :)
  30. Shawn, it does glow like crazy under a black light; definitely uv-reactive. It even seems to glow a bit in the last evening light - quite a brilliant green color, isn't it? :) Thanks!
  31. Shawn, thank you! :)
  32. Shawn, thanks so much for your comment! :)
  33. Ian, I came across a very pale pink Tango vase very similar to yours recently - it is such an unusual Tango color combination, and I just love it. These all look really nice together - you have great ...
  34. It is really nice to see them all together, Ian. I am always partial to the rubina verde coloration.
  35. Another little berry beauty!
  36. This is so pretty - I love the strawberries on the basket; you don't see them very often. It is very summery!
  37. Oooh - I love that shape, too, sklo42. Thanks for the great article, Craig!
  38. Beautiful metal work on this one, Alan!
  39. Wow, what a really nice bridal bowl, Shawn. I have never seen one in a martele before! Based on the pontil, I feel Loetz can be ruled out (their pontils are always very round and well polished) - I pe...
  40. inky, I just saw this post for the first time - wow!! This piece is Amazing! I have never heard of a piece of marmoriertes glass this large - and this beautiful. It is just stunning. The colors are so...
  41. I feel they are Harrach, myself! :) A lovely pair!
  42. Good luck in your search! :)
  43. Oh Rick, this is a beauty. I have only seen one other Rindskopf in this color - it is an unusual shade of blue for them. It is one of my favorites!!
  44. A great find, Marty! :)
  45. Thank you, Alan! :)
  46. Dave, the vase on the right is the Kralik 'Sea Urchin' decor, I believe. These are both terrific vases!
  47. This is very elegant - thanks for sharing it!
  48. EAPGDepression, I think your link was very helpful, thank you. That is another example of an identified Welz decor, I believe, and I personally find the shape to be very similar to Shawnl86's basket o...
  49. Lovely!
  50. Rick and Peggy, thank you so much! I do love the color. :)
