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!

  10. 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!
  11. Alan, I was actually thinking these were terrific pictures and was going to mention it, so there you go! :)
  12. 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...

  18. Wow, this is a beauty, Alan! The iridescence is wonderful. I don't know who made it for sure, but I don't believe it is by Rindskopf. I have seen similar shapes with the molded lobes by Kralik, howeve...
  19. Wow, love this one! Definitely looks like Welz to me, and a terrific shape and color, too!

  22. Wow - really a lovely piece, Phil!
  23. Thank you, sklo - I appreciate it! :)
  24. Thank you very much, sklo. I am glad you like it! Most of the vases in this shape done by the Smith Bros. have birds (quite a few cranes) or children done in more typical Victorian style enamel work, ...
  25. Thank you, Rose! :)
  26. Beautiful collection, Peggy! I don't see this decor very much. And I think you know I love group photos - the last one is terrific! :)
  27. Gorgeous! I can just imagine what this would look like with lit candles and flowers in the centerpiece! Very unusual - thanks for sharing it!
  28. kivatinitz, I am so glad this was helpful - thank you!
  29. Thanks so much Kai, great to know!
  30. Bob, isn't it amazing how this decor is made of different horizontal bands of iridescence? I have a different shape in the same decor that shows the same properties as yours - it is something you don'...
  31. Wow - you really caught the magnificent colors of this one with your photography, Malkey. I wish I could take pictures (and own a PK vase) like this! :)
  32. A lovely vase, Malkey. I agree with you that it is Heckert Changeant - and I love the triangular opening! Very unusual and a great shape!
  33. Nice shape! I love the green handles, too - thanks for sharing it! :) Sometimes when I can't get to the bottom of a dirty vase, I add small dried beans or split peas to soapy water and swirl them arou...
  34. sklo, this is such a neat piece. At first when I saw it I hoped it was big, and could serve as a trifle bowl!! :) But even at the smaller size, it is just lovely!
  35. Fran, what a terrific find! This is such a neat decor - good for you! :)
  36. This is gorgeous! I love the colors. I have seen this decor attributed to Stevens & Williams several times (of which I am not an expert at all!) so you may want to look at their work just to see if th...
  37. Very interesting! The colors and ribbing look similar to those shown in the article - and the foot on the taller one. I do see the relationship between the two vases, as well. You may want to email Ka...
  38. So beautiful! The colors are very delicate - I can see this on a cheery breakfast table, filled with daisies...
  39. What a great story! And what a nice remembrance of your trip, too! It is amazing to me how much Welz there is in the UK. I was in Warwick about 2 1/2 years ago, and there on the main street, in an ant...
  40. Very pretty! I love this variation of the rim. Such a pretty Welz piece! :)
  41. Thanks so much, sklo - I am glad you like it!
  42. Thanks so much, inky! :)
  43. Hi Malkey, thank you! That's it - fresh - I do love the green! :)
  44. Here's the link to the vase in image 4: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/164315-legras-st-denis-gilt-rococo-revival-vase
  45. Rick, thank you! The leaves are particularly interesting with the darker flowing lines within them. I wonder what technique they used to achieve it?
  46. Thanks so much, Rick! I appreciate your expertise on these. I honestly know nothing about Italian glass, but the hand-worked nature of these pieces is really lovely, I agree. :)
  47. Ian, you just cracked me up. Now I have a face to go with your name! ;) This is a great vase!
  48. Very pretty! I really like the green 'tadpoles' coming so far down the vase, and the red accents are the topper. Thanks for sharing it!
  49. Wow - an even more unusual shade of blue! So pretty!!! I have never seen these before - you keep pulling out surprises! :)
  50. Very interesting observation, Craig! I particularly like this one for that gorgeous blue; you don't see this color very often.
