1. So funky, you have to like it!
  2. Lovely color Lee!!!
  3. Very nice, quality piece. Check the PMC, they show some of the higher end quality pieces such as this.
  4. Warren that was a great connection you made! I'm curious, what clued you in initially that it might be Loetz vs Kralik?
  5. Gary I love this Loetz design too! Your Neptun shell vase is a stunner!
  6. I believe this is definitely a Loetz vase. One thing to keep in mind is that Loetz, Kralik and Rindskopf were (as we found out from Jitka Lne?nic?kova?) all making glass for each other, so that muck...
  7. Beautiful, and well paired :)
  8. Definitely not B&S.....most likely Bohemian, or another European source (the PK mark comes to mind).
  9. I have one of these as well but it also has the bowl that sits atop the piece :) I wonder what the purpose of having two different finishes on the plate was?
  10. Shame that piece of art lasted almost 100 years to meet the tragic death of a 25 cent paper bag :(
  11. Moser (and like Harrach) intaglio glass is extremely beautiful!
  12. But wait, those are Rossler :)
  13. Very cool find Warren! Do you think the glass could be by Poschinger?
  14. Very nice Warren! I saw that piece when it was up and it reminded me of the signed piece you have.
  15. Beautiful piece of history!
  16. Great snag Warren, you almost had competition on those! Although I'm glad they updated the description to include why they arrived at their conclusion, I'm not sure I agree with the Alp...
  17. Really great pieces Warren, I too was almost a contender, just wasn't sure enough on the attribution at the time to pull the trigger. Great to see them stay in the family so to speak :)
  18. Just the way the rim/lip is formed, it looks like it was made to go into a lamp shade fitter. Is the top ~ 2.25" across?
  19. Nice piece of Loetz! I wonder if it wasn't a lamp shade?
  20. Great piece Warren.
  21. Nice unusual example of Rusticana! Warren I had a shipper (UPS store no less) ship me what was a fantastic signed Moser lidded box and they plastic wrapped the lid to the box. When it arrived and I ...
  22. Wonderful pair!
  23. Nice snag Warren, I was really contemplating this piece.
  24. I'll have to check my Riedel pieces when I get home, for some reason I recall them as a letter period and three digits, typically very neatly written.
  25. Hi Warren, I could see the confusion, but I strongly suspect that Lee's air-trap vase is a Riedel piece. The numbering, a letter, a period, followed by three digits, and very neatly written is very c...
  26. Might actually be Riedel, isn't quite the type of numbering we generally see on Harrach glass, but Riedel did very similar numbering schemes, and made some very nice air-trap glass.
  27. I think that pink/orange is called salmon :) Beautiful piece!
  28. The Corning Museum of Glass (CMOG.ORG) published an interesting article on these (this piece is photographed in the article) whereas their research showed that these were actually designed by a couple...
  29. I was tempted to buy that set when I saw it, it's really a lovely old quality set. Difficult to attribute a maker, it would be purely speculation on my part. Glad it went to a good home.
  30. Here's a short bit I wrote many years ago on Harrach Peloton glass, and updated with the patent info that Warren found on google:
  31. I definitely count fleabay as a fleamarket......but yeah definitely early Loetz :)
  32. 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...
  33. 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.
  34. Very nice acquisition Warren! That mark is also shown on a piece (or pieces) in the PMC.
  35. 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...
  36. 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 ...
  37. Don't believe these are Harrach, but not sure who did them?
  38. 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...
  39. Stunning Harrach glass!
  40. Nice piece. Typically you see these enameled with flowers on them, surprised to see a blank one so to speak.
  41. 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?
  42. Mac the shape is definitely similar to some of the Octopus pieces.
  43. 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...
  44. 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...
  45. Beautiful piece of glass. The problem with Leslie Pina books, is that she was highly erroneous in her attributions.
  46. I can't see the writing on the base, but yeah I have seen FH with unpolished pontils.
  47. 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 ...
  48. Probably Heckert or Harrach historium glass from the 1800's, it was a very popular "revival" trend of the 17th century style glass.
  49. Stunning piece, congrats!!
  50. Great buy Warren! One of my best Loetz buys came from the "Asian Art" section :)
