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. Thanks so much, inky! It is so much prettier than I expected - don't you just love that? :)
  2. Thanks so much, Alan. I am so glad you like it! Let me take a look at yours and I'll also see if I can find a similar Loetz shape. :)
  3. Inky, you are too kind. Thank you!! :)
  4. Malkey, thank you so much - I am glad you like it! I love the bees, too!
  5. Malkey, I always love reading your comments - thank you! :)
  6. Thanks, Brian. That is very good to know.
  7. Kevin, that is fascinating! Yesterday I was sort of wondering about Karlsberg being a spa town, and glass connections beyond Moser. It could make sense that it was a good place to market from. Great r...
  8. Thank you, Peggy; the bees are one of my favorite parts, too! :)
  9. Kevin, I just checked out the ewer you mentioned on worthpoint - definitely glass, not porcelain. I have seen other pieces in the exact shape - a Harrach blank.
  10. Thank you Roycroftbooks - that's a beautiful example. From what I have seen of other examples, that would be decor 789.
  11. Hi Kevin, You are always so thorough in your research! You know, I came across an issue with Tischer that I have come across with enameled opaline Baccarat - even though their pieces are glass, they ...
  12. Wow - I've never seen one of these before! Beautiful! What a cool find, Alan! :)
  13. Well, good luck with repairing your camera, Peggy. I hate changing to new ones, as there is always such a learning curve on them for me! :)
  14. Thank you, sklo! That is one of the things I love about Nouveau pieces. :)
  15. Thank you so much, Alan. I am very pleased with it, and so glad you like it! :)
  16. I have always like this shape - and your photos are great. They really show off the texture and color!
  17. This is beautiful, sklo - I am so happy you were able to find it, in a nicer condition (and better price!) than the other example!
  18. Such a pretty one - perfect spring daffodil-like colors! I really like the fact that this one is all satin - it gives it a lovely soft look.
  19. Thanks, nutsabotas6 - I am glad you like it!
  20. Thank you, Ivonne - I know exactly what you mean! :)
  21. Phil, thank you very much!
  22. I really like this combination - the blue and cream are so striking, and need no other colors. I can see why it is a favorite!
  23. Oh, this is a really nice one!! I have a soft spot for Harrach's bird vases - this one is nicely enameled, and in great condition, too! You know, I have the book you mention, and although it was an ex...
  24. Thanks so much, Phil! On liveauctioneers.com they have quite a few examples of Tischer vases and ewers in past auction results, if you'd like to see other examples.
  25. Sure thing, Phil! I know exactly what you mean - I think your brain can sense the quality of a piece, even though at the time you may not know who made it. There are so many helpful coincidences in gl...
  26. I bet they do, Phil! It is really a terrific piece! :)
  27. Thank you, Brian. That's a good point - their vases and pitchers were completely covered with enamel, and some I have seen mis-identified as porcelain. I'll take a look on the FB page for your pieces....
  28. Thank you, Craig! :)
  29. It only lists 7.5" and 9"...yours is off the charts! ;)
  30. Phil, this IS a massive piece! Wow! And it is beautiful, too. Let me see if I can find it on my Loetz cd to see if they note sizes... :)
  31. Wow! I love this one! Great shape, plus wonderful peloton!
  32. Phil, the piece you linked to on EBay is Rindskopf (and a nice one!) but this piece definitely is not, in my opinion. The shape and marbling style just don't fit in with their work. But it does have s...
  33. I agree with you - definitely Bohemian. I have quite a few examples with the same type of green enamel at the rim, and the shape is also right. It is very well enameled - a great piece!
  34. Love, love, love! What a beautiful color and form! A terrific find, sklo!
  35. What a beauty, Alan! Perfect for your collection! :)
  36. What a fun one, sklo! I love the colors, and it's exuberance!
  37. Great colors on this one, Ian! I haven't seen this decor with mica that I can remember. I bet it is a really nice combination in the right light - just a bit of sparkle with the red and green. Thanks ...
  38. Thanks so much kivatinitz & inky - I am so glad you like them! :)
  39. Thank you Malkey, I really appreciate it! :)
  40. I didn't know, but am so glad you like this one, Rick! :)
  41. Thank you very much, Rick - it is very good condition for its age! :)
  42. Thank you, kivatinitz - I am so glad you like it!
  43. Thank you, Malkey - me too! :)
  44. Thank you, Manikin! :)
  45. Always happy to help, Alan! You have a great piece there! :)
  46. (I mean not in this exact shape, but with the molded lobes...)
  47. Alan, I have some images of examples of this shape in pale pink and I think blue...I can send them to you if you'd like. Let me know!
  48. Alan, I was actually thinking these were terrific pictures and was going to mention it, so there you go! :)
  49. Malkey, this is just beautiful, and your photos really make it shine. I realize that similar vase are attributed to Rindskopf, but I personally believe this is a Kralik piece, based on the shape and c...
  50. Oh, wow! I have never, ever seen any of these with a bird! I just love it - what a special one to add to your wonderful collection!
