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. ...by the way, how tall is it? Thanks!
  2. Lovely - the colors are great! :)
  3. Marty, you're right - these are the Acanthus floriforms; they have thorns and the mouth shape is more enclosed in form than the iris. :)
  4. Great pictures, Craig. The colors and form on this one are really interesting - I love it, and am so glad it is a part of your Welz collection. :)
  5. Wow, this one is so unusual - I really love it. Thanks for the commentary on the colors and foot; very interesting!
  6. Lee, that is 0ne of the prettiest floriforms I have seen - I just love the unusual color, and the shape of the flower petals - gorgeous!
  7. inky, you are so sweet - thank you, and Merry Christmas to you and yours, as well! :)
  8. Inky, what a sweet friend you have, and a vey special vase. Merry Christmas!! :)
  9. Thank you, Laura! :)
  10. Beautiful! I love the shape!
  11. Lovely - as soon as I saw it I thought Heckert, as well. The orange-red flowers against the dark green are so striking!
  12. yesterdaysglass, thank you! :)
  13. Now that is really special - just lovely!
  14. Craig, I couldn't have said it better. That is exactly how I feel about it, too. Thank you!
  15. austrohungaro & Rick, thanks so much!
  16. Hi Craig, I just compared them all, and I have to say they are all pretty much the exact same shade of blue, at least to my eyes. The color of the iridescence is also very similar, but the crackle vas...
  17. Tomasz, I am glad you like it - thanks! :)
  18. Thank you, sklo42! :)
  19. Wow, that one's different - I like the ruffled mouth - a nice touch on a trophy vase. :)
  20. Ian, your vase is in very good condition for a Goldberg - usually the silver is quite worn. I always like their acorn/oak motifs. Very nice!
  21. Thanks Alfredo, I will have to go take a look at that decor now.
  22. inky, I can see them fitting in very well with all of your lovely, lovely blues! :) Thank you!
  23. Thank you, Craig! :)
  24. Lee, thanks so much! :)
  25. Ian, this is just beautiful. Such delicate enameling! Quite different, I think.
  26. My pleasure! :)
  27. Coyne's was probably the importer or the store that sold the glass...I found a decanter and glasses set with the same label that is currently on Etsy. I wouldn't say it is very old - 1950's-60's, perh...
  28. Wonderful research - thank you so much for furthering our knowledge of Heckert's work yet again!
  29. Volkmar, great to know!
  30. Sure thing! :)
  31. Hi Rick, what a gorgeous vase! Just based on my experience, I wouldn't say this is Kralik in feel - it is extremely iridescent, and I would personally lean more towards Fritz Heckert (Marmopal? here's...
  32. Inky - wow! wow!! That is amazing!
  33. I'm sorry, I'm not clear on this - what is the new evidence that directed you now to believe these are PK? Is it the blue decor, or a particular shape? Thanks.
  34. Thanks, I have seen that Rindskopf catalog, but it is only for pressed glass; I referred to their art glass production, specifically.
  35. Of the many Welz vases I have seen, and those that I own, one of the interesting things about them to me is how the different colors of glass in the vases have distinct, often sharp edges to them - th...
  36. Ernie, that is one heck of a great website - it has the best Imperial information that I know of. You did a great job on it - thank you! :)
  37. Sure thing! :)
  38. Lee, lovely vases! I wanted to point out that I believe they are actually not Freehand, but are Lead Luster vases. It can be confusing trying to tell them apart, but there is an excellent website that...
  39. This is a nice one, Ian - I like the shape and the enamel work.
  40. Lovely - and a very cool shape!
  41. Of course not! :)
  42. A beautiful basket - I have seen similar Bohemian examples with the thorn handles before, but not in this particular blue pattern or shape. It is unusual, and very lovely.
  43. Thank you so much, lostspirits!
  44. Thanks Lisa, I'm glad you like it! :) I have never seen a sweet pea pattern by them before, so this was a fun find.
  45. Thanks, Mac & Lisa! :)
  46. Here is the link to the other Goldberg vase I posted on CW recently: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/137311-carl-goldberg-enameled-iris-vase?in=442
  47. Very pretty, Ian - I was watching this one! I really like the decoration on it - glad you got it! :)
  48. WOW!!!
  49. Love the vase. You have a great attitude, Ian! :)
  50. I am happy! ;)
