I have been collecting Bohemian glass, mostly Rindskopf, Kralik and Loetz, for over fourteen years. I find it so intriguing and beautiful. It all started when I saw I have been collecting Bohemian glass, mostly Rindskopf, Kralik and Loetz, for over fourteen 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. Beautiful, Warren. I love the cool frosted glass with the deep blue - so beautiful.
  2. What a beauty, Ivonne! The blue is just lovely!
  3. Thank you very much, Karen - you are too kind! :)
  4. sklo, thanks so much - I am so glad you like it! Oak leaves and acorns may have been popular then, but they will always be trendy with me! :) We are surrounded by old Live Oaks here, and a large one d...
  5. This was a very interesting discussion between everyone - thanks for the food for thought!
  6. I finally get to see it! Beautiful, sklo. I am happy you were able to get the Harlequin - it is so pretty in this example! (And one of my favorite decors...) :)
  7. Terrific examples of the tri-ball vases! I particularly like your deep red to Amber example. Welz was just so imaginative, and their creativity with color combinations seem to be just endless.
  8. Oh sklo, those two green thorns are really wonderful examples. The undulating ribbon-like forms are terrific. Aren't thorns so much fun? :)
  9. Very nice vase, Alan. I really like the interesting molding on the sides. I have never seen one like this attributed to Rindskopf before. I don't know who the maker is, but you may want to look at som...
  10. Hi Alan, thanks so much! And sure, I'd be happy to try to answer any questions you may have about Rindskopf. :)
  11. What a beauty!!
  12. I agree with Ian; I have a similar thorn in pink, and believe it could be either Welz or Kralik at this point. Yours is lovely - thanks for sharing it!
  13. How cheerful this is! I love it - it would be so fun to have on a table for a Sunday brunch!
  14. olebodie, thank you very much! :)
  15. Thank you, kivatinitz!
  16. sklo, thanks so much! I do enjoy seeing how makers used different decors, and how different they look against different backgrounds and shapes; your posts are often great examples of that!
  17. Hi Ivonne, I am glad you think so! :)
  18. (By the way, the seller kindly let me use his images for 1, 2, and 4.)
  19. Beautiful!!
  20. I really like art glass biscuit barrels - this is a great one, Ian!
  21. That is such a good point - I need to keep that in mind more often! :)
  22. Great shape - the crimping around the edge is a nice addition, too!
  23. Here it is: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/99224-kralik-mother-of-pearl-vases-in-two-size :)
  24. Of my goodness, sklo, how gorgeous! I am right now looking at two versions of these that are on my bookcase - a large and a small. I have had them for ages, but I have never seen one with a frog, let ...
  25. So simple and lovely!!
  26. These are really beautiful, Craig. And I agree with sklo - thank you again for a post that taught me quite a bit!
  27. kivatinitz, thank you; I am glad you like it!
  28. Thanks so much, sklo! Natural light does wonders, as you recently mentioned! :)
  29. Beautiful! And your photos are terrific - you really have developed a skill, sklo. Your vases just glow in the photos, really showing the decors to their best advantage.
  30. Sklo, what a beauty! This decor is always a special one; I haven't seen this shape before, and together they are a wonderful combination. And your pictures are terrific, too!
  31. Beautiful - I always love blue and yellow together!
  32. Great photos, Shawn!
  33. Oh, what a beauty. A terrific example of the decor in a hard to find box - perfect!
  34. Ian, I always love your creative decor names. This is a great thorn - a big one, too!
  35. What a beautiful, beautiful vase. Everything about it is just stunning!
  36. Ian, the green striping and the 'm' crimp immediately brought Welz to my mind as well...
  37. swfinluv1, that description is perfect! Thanks so much for your imagery, and for your kind comments. :)
  38. What an elegant vase! I have always loved this form. How wonderful to have two but in different decors! Will you display them side by side?
  39. Thanks, Gruff!
  40. Thank you so much, sklo - I really do appreciate your thoughts about it. As you know, I couldn't wait for it to arrive so I could see it in person! :)
  41. Alan, I am glad you two are staying together! LOL! :) I am sure my husband thinks I am a bit crazy for other reasons - but glass would be a good excuse! ;)
  42. Alan, thank you for your kind comments. I am very lucky that my husband supports my habit! ;)
  43. Karen, thank you! It looks best with some light directly on it to show off both - I have a great spot for it on an old oak sideboard in our living room. :)
  44. Craig, thanks so much!! :)
  45. Roycroftbooksfromme1, thank you very much, I am glad you like it!
  46. What a beauty, Gruff. Yes, this is a Rindskopf in the 'Pepita' decor. I particularly like the shape of your vase - the twist is really nice. One of the things I like about Rindskopf is that they made ...
  47. sklo, a lot of the DEKs in this kind of style that are on CW don't have the numbering on them anymore. Let me go through my files & the CD and see if I can at least ID the vase shape as Loetz...
  48. Thank you! :)
  49. Sorry - do you also happen to know its height? Thank you!
  50. Wow, what a stunning vase. I haven't seen one like it. Do you know if the base glass is uv reactive? From the color, it looks like it could be. Thanks!!
