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. Great color!
  2. A beauty, Lisa! I planned to bid on this but missed my chance - I had a feeling it went to you! :) I haven't seen too many Goldbergs like this in amethyst, too - a great find!
  3. Very good to know - thanks!
  4. Here's a link to my older post about the vase: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/108549-hanging-or-mounted-three-handled-vase
  5. Beautiful! Lee, as I mentioned on FB, I have the same vase, but in a golden color, with an acid-etched pattern of oak leaves. I have never been able to pinpoint a maker, so I'd love to hear if you are...
  6. Try buying a frog with an antique/vintage piece of cut glass (ie a cut glass rose bowl) - they are usually a lot less money than the iridescent bases, but have the same or very similar frogs...
  7. Great one, Lisa! I love the coloring. :)
  8. Wow - I have never seen this décor before, Mac - what a beautiful vase.
  9. Thank you, Vintagefran - me too! :)
  10. Thank you, inky! :)
  11. So gorgeous!! I can't believe you were able to find the acorn top!
  12. Thanks so much - I will do that! :)
  13. Sure thing, Marty! :)
  14. Lee, I LOVE the cup! I have never seen one before - what a great form! What a coincidence, too! :)
  15. Scott, I can understand wanting to get home as soon as possible! Now when you do go, it will be at your leisure. :)
  16. Thanks Scott! You should go if you can! :)
  17. What a sweet & special gift! I'd say Kralik, too - and a very pretty one. :)
  18. Just gorgeous, Mac!!
  19. Sorry, Ian - your vase looked like a soft crackle to me, until I zoomed in the pics just now. What a cool pattern!
  20. Ian, I'd agree with you that your vase is definitely Bohemian, based on the decor and shape. Have you seen this post on CW? http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/56653-mystery-glass I have been do...
  21. Ian, I have an upright Kralik floriform that has the same flower shape as yours - I really do think yours is Kralik. It is a gorgeous color, and I love it with the mount, original or not! :)
  22. Mac, your shelves are really wonderful - what a classy way to display your glass. And you can see each individual piece so well - I know exactly what you mean about displaying without making it look l...
  23. Oooooooh - I love this one!!
  24. Wow, Lee - what a beauty!!! I love it!! :)
  25. Inky - wow!! What a stunning pair! Good for you!
  26. Warren, I have been out of the country, but watched and desperately wanted that cyclamen vase - just stunning. I am happy to hear it went to you. I thought it was Poschinger, and would love to know wh...
  27. Jim, what a beautiful example of Welz in the rainbow honeycomb decor. Your lamp is just gorgeous - really a wonderful piece of glass.
  28. Inky, you are so sweet, thank you! :)
  29. Lisa, you certainly are! :) The vase was tough to photograph and to get the pink tones to look correct with my camera, but after a second try I got it - the photos show the accurate coloring. Not quit...
  30. Interesting information - thanks, Lee!
  31. Lisa, thank you, and oh wow! I can't believe it - I didn't think many people saw the listing. If you saw this and thought Bohemian, you are getting scarily good, very fast! (The rather fuzzy pictures ...
  32. Ian, I believe your vase may be Harrach. I have seen this style of decor from them before - here is an example: http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/1275782
  33. Thanks Lee! I know you love the pink! :)
  34. So cheerful - love it! :)
  35. ...and I am not loving this post, okay?
  36. Oh Lee, I am so sorry. What a sad thing to have happen. I think it must happen to us all at one point, and I hope you find another vase to make you happy.
  37. You have some beauties! What a great collection!
  38. Thanks, Mac!
  39. Gorgeous, Tomasz!
  40. I'm so glad you got it, Lee! :)
  41. Oh inky, thank you. I know you do! ;)
  42. Lisa, this is one of my favorite Goldberg patterns - I love the sort of dandelion sunbursts against the egg-shaped vase - gorgeous!
  43. I agree; these vases are often mis-attributed to Stevens & Williams (actually, all the time!), but are actually believed to be by Harrach.
  44. Lisa, thank you for your very kind comment!
  45. Thank you, Lisa - it was one of my lucky finds! :)
  46. Thanks so much, antiquerose & Lee!
  47. inky, thanks so much. I knew when I saw it that it was a special one. My Rindskopf love keeps growing! ;)
  48. Marty, this reminds me of a Kralik tango I posted a few weeks ago in lime - it is very UV reactive - does the cream trim on yours react to black light? It feels to me like it should...
  49. Very pretty! Love the shape and bit of sparkle!
  50. I do have one trick for cleaning small vases with bulbous bottoms, where a brush may not reach - fill them with a small handful of dried lentils or garbanzo beans (depending on the vase size) with a s...
