  1. Great write up Warren, it's an absolutely stunning beautiful piece of Moser history. Question for you - I'm not near any Mosher references at the moment, but was it Rudolph Wels or Rudolph Weiss? I t...
  2. Stunning example of 19th century Loetz, it's very interesting how they were able to effectively recycle old Japanese and Islamic designs into, new art, or Art Nouveau.
  3. Very nice acquisition Warren! That mark is also shown on a piece (or pieces) in the PMC.
  4. These are tough ones, because offline several of us have bantered back and forth whether or not these are Harrach, and thus far they lack enough proof to definitely say they are IMHO. Of the over 5,0...
  5. I agree with Warren in so much as I doubt either factory did the decorating, the blank, could be from just about any glasshouse really. The piece you referenced in LA is really very different, and ...
  6. Don't believe these are Harrach, but not sure who did them?
  7. Nice addition Warren. I have five pieces of this line in various colors, but oddly no blue yet. Two of my pieces are in the same shape as two of yours, but in different colors. BTW I don't believe I...
  8. Stunning Harrach glass!
  9. Nice piece. Typically you see these enameled with flowers on them, surprised to see a blank one so to speak.
  10. Great piece Warren! I always thought the Jodhpur pieces were etched and enameled, not iridescent enameled pieces. Does the Heckert book show this iridescent enameled Heckert work also as Jodhpur?
  11. Mac the shape is definitely similar to some of the Octopus pieces.
  12. I assume you mean the coloring of the enameling of the DEK numbering? If so, and correct me if I'm wrong, but the confirmed Loetz DEK #'s seem to be done in gold. In my second paragraph, the color...
  13. Mac it's a very nice vase, but I'm not seeing Loetz. Have to agree with Alisa on this, more of a Harrach, or possible Riedel feel to it IMHO. The disc style foot is something Harrach used a lot, the...
  14. Beautiful piece of glass. The problem with Leslie Pina books, is that she was highly erroneous in her attributions.
  15. I can't see the writing on the base, but yeah I have seen FH with unpolished pontils.
  16. The more I look at it, I do believe it's a 19th century Historic Revival piece, but not Harrach or Heckert. They'd typically have a polished pontil, but I suspect most of the glass houses were making ...
  17. Probably Heckert or Harrach historium glass from the 1800's, it was a very popular "revival" trend of the 17th century style glass.
  18. Stunning piece, congrats!!
  19. Great buy Warren! One of my best Loetz buys came from the "Asian Art" section :)
  20. Beautiful piece of Victorian era Loetz! I'll have to keep my eyes out for this opalescent lavender glass now :)
  21. Glass houses buying and contracting with other glass houses definitely makes it challenging to attribute the work. One item to note, when I say the rainbow glass between these makers is different, I'...
  22. Jay I was a contributor to Leland's Phoenix Glass book. When I showed him my video of the Harrach Glass Museum collection, he was shocked by some of the work Harrach did. Personally I suspect Phoeni...
  23. Beautiful, bonus to find a piece with an original label!
  24. Very nice buy!
  25. This may be the first time I've seen someone reference Duncan's "Paris Salons" book. I have it, but haven't found it to be a useful reference, glad you were able to put it to use.
  26. Many of us have known all along :)
  27. Super find Warren!!
  28. Having been to Marienbad, that is a pretty neat piece of glass!
  29. Yeah I'm sure these probably all had different names. That's a great piece too by the way! The gold at the top looks perfect, usually these seem to have a fair amount of wear, nice find.
  30. Not sure I'd put this in the same category as Persica, which is a stained or coated glass (it's base is clear), or heliotrope, which is an iridescent glass. As it's basically a Victorian dye away s...
  31. Stunning set!
  32. Beautiful, great Christmas colors too!
  33. I love that design too, that one I have as well :)
  34. I love that Deco style Loetz design Lee, nice example, and one on my list to add to my collection down the road :)
  35. You're correct about recognizing the old German letters, it was a very different way of writing. The Harrach chateau (it's effectively a museum now) has a collection of original family related docume...
  36. Pretty interesting document you found there Warren. It'll make a great document for your Harrach museum :) Let me know if you find someone who can translate old German. I had several people try to ...
  37. Here is Dek I/107: http://loetz.com/decors-a-z/dek/dekor-dek/107
  38. Nice sleuthing Warren! Is there a Dek# with this one? I'm tempted to start a pre-1900 Loetz page to better document the Victorian era (pre Paris 1900) Loetz as the focus, as well as majority of doc...
  39. sorry, meant 411, not 911 :)
  40. Really nice Warren. What's the 911 on Schliersee ?
  41. Nice match!
  42. Very nice, this was the first Poschinger decor/shaped vase I purchased around 15 years ago. Now I have two, one is a smaller version of the same, with the second one being fairly large. Both are sim...
  43. Ah yes, was watching that one too...almost went for it, glad to see it went to a good home.
  44. I just published an extensive article with original design book drawings and original Harrach sales photos of their "Floret" glass (their generic term for opalescent glass). They made quite a variety...
  45. Owning this identical Harrach Floret vase, I am probably partial to it :) This is a fun, and hard to find opalescent art glass pattern, glad you added one to your Harrach collection!
  46. Congrats Warren, the decorating on these basalt pieces is top notch, rivals anything by anyone at the time! I believe that is a clematis flower. You and Alisa have really piqued my interest in addi...
  47. Very nice acquisition Warren, glad I was able to find the drawing. Probably should research that book a little more in depth to see if further knowledge on their opalescent glass could be gleaned.
  48. That's a beauty, Loetz were masters doing iridescence right!
  49. I have a Sony ?100 with the kit lens. I bet the quality of glass photos would pop with a good prime lens.
  50. As a collector of Poschinger Art Nouveau glass, I can really appreciate this piece. Not a lot of their furnace decorated work shows up, seems to be much less produced then other makers of the same ti...
