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. Thanks so much Rick and racer4racer! The green is what drew me to it, I think. It is really a bright, fresh color. :)
  2. Thank you, Fran! :)
  3. Thank you Craig, Lee, Alan, Peggy & nutsabotas for your lovely comments! (And yes, I am female! ;) )
  4. Thanks so much, Ivonne!
  5. Oh, I love this one, Lee! Just beautiful.
  6. WD40 fixes many sins! ;) A lovely rose bowl!!
  7. ...I was thinking Poschinger, too...
  8. A great color, Peggy! The two vases look lovely together! :)
  9. Wow, this is really unusual - what a great find!!
  10. Kevin, couldn't I just download them and email them to you? I'll ask Craig to send me your email address. :)
  11. I am not sure if anyone has seen these books before, but I was looking through them yesterday. They mention Lazarus, Rosenfeld & Lehmann as well as other glass importers, and even list each week's imp...
  12. I was thinking the same thing, vetraio!
  13. I agree with Lee (Kralik, MOP threaded) - what a great birthday present! You can see some examples of this vase here: http://www.20thcenturyglass.com/glass_encyclopedia/artnouveau_glass/artnouveau_gl...
  14. Oooooh - nice one, Rick! I have never seen a crackle in this shape before. It has a lovely iridescence, too - what a great vase!
  15. Hi Sharon, your label actually says "Made in Czechoslovakia" and is a label that was used since 1965, I believe; here is a link to some vases with similar labels: http://www.glassbudvases.co.uk/bohemi...
  16. Wow - this is a beauty, Rick - a very BIG beauty! ;)
  17. This one is really, really nice, Peggy - and I'd have to say 'cool', too! I love it!!
  18. Thanks for the additional, and very well detailed information, Kevin. Funnily enough, I was looking into this issue just last week, as I have an old carved clothes brush holder that is marked 'Foreign...
  19. Thanks for the great article, Craig. This is terrific food for thought, and will make me really think about what I *think* I know next time I see a mark like those shown above!
  20. Thanks, Lee - I'll let you know! ;)
  21. Thank you, inky, Scott & Rick! I am so glad you like it, too. :)
  22. Alan and vetraio, I took a look at my vases today, and yes, the molded veining pattern appears to be identical on the two vases. I did buy the two 'Pepita' vases separately; one is much more red than ...
  23. Vetraio, I had never even thought of checking before, but I just went and used my black light on it - the green portion of the vase glows quite brightly.
  24. Thank you, Peggy! :)
  25. Thanks, Craig! :)
  26. Thank you, surfdub66!
  27. vetraio, let me compare the two and I'll get right back to you.
  28. Craig - terrific post! Very well thought-out and explained. First, you clearly stated some of the reasons why I am no longer convinced that my four vases in the 'molded veining' decor are by Rindskopf...
  29. Thanks, Craig - those are some good reasons that I now have my doubts, too.
  30. Hi vetraio, yes, I do believe all of these four vases are by the same maker. I also believe that whoever made these vases also made Alan's Pepita-like vase. I think my green vase with the wasp-waist i...
  31. Hi vetraio, yes, these are the ones I am not sure of anymore. I am not convinced they aren't Rindskopf, but I have some doubts now. I am going to add my thoughts to this post as an update so as to not...
  32. Hi Alan, no - sorry if I wasn't clear - I don't think this vase is PK; I was just saying that I have seen an example of a very Pepita-like decor by PK, so other makers did work in this coloration. And...
  33. I just wanted to add a few of my thoughts on this decor...I have four vases in what I call this 'molded veining' pattern. In the past, I felt the were Rindskopf, but one thing has always bothered me a...
  34. They are beautiful together, Lee! :)
  35. Oh wow, Mac. Just wonderful. Good for you!! :)
  36. Wonderful, Ian. And they sure all look like they are by the same maker to me! :)
  37. Inky, Kivatinitz, Rick, and Kyle, thanks so much for your comments! :)
  38. kivatinitz, thanks so much!
  39. kivatinitz, that is a very good idea - it certainly could have been that! Thanks! :)
  40. Oh inky, they are just beautiful! The red snakes against the icy glass is amazing. I love your idea for Christmas! :)
  41. Peggy, the colors on your basket are so lovely - I think the addition of the blue just makes it pop! :)
  42. Lee, that is one amazing vase. The colors are stunning - just WOW!
  43. Peggy and Rose, thanks so much! :)
  44. That is just an amazing set - Wow!!
  45. Aww, thanks Ian! :)
  46. ..by the way, if you google "kralik pearlescent lobed vase" you can see some other similar examples. :)
  47. Hi Fran, Kralik did some vases like these; I have seen very similar vases by them in both the pearlescent color like yours and in iridescent green. Some have sterling silver collars, and some do not. ...
  48. Wow - a beauty, Peggy! This style looks so modern to me, and yet has the old deco feel at the same time (if that makes any sense!)
  49. Beautiful!!
  50. Thanks, Lisa. Looking forward to seeing yours!
