  1. Think we were discussing violet as well when this one came up ...
  2. Cheers Dave & Andy ... Will get some better pics but thought it worth "holding" this space ...
  3. Interesting in that the "holes" have progressed / regressed to being almost a Coin dot / thumbprint indentation ...
  4. Have always thought of them as Medallion ... but can't see them on Eddy's site or Craig's .... Will check the Dek Pics in back of Ricke1 as well but otherwise will have to try and figure out why ... M...
  5. A great test of Spellcheck Tolerances! Love the Kristall schiefgewaltzt's ?... !
  6. Hi Warren ... Fairly sure we used to have a Dekor identified as "Medallion" on Eddy's site ... Has this been totally superseded ? Cheers
  7. Thanks Leah Incredibly good condition ! Great spotting and great pics.
  8. Thx all Cheers Vet50 ... forgot about your Texas thang! Can't believe I missed the color difference between Clematis and Apfels ... just never had them in the same place before !
  9. Thanks Phil .
  10. Thanks Warren ... Will dig around for some pics ... Is a bit like calling hearts or diamonds "purple" ... (although that could just be the result of their urinalysis) :-)
  11. Slight discrepancy here with Clematis (Ausf 96) down as Gelbgrun while 'Texas mit Apfel" is documented on as Gelb or Candia ... While the colors are the same (I think) ... .. and the bright UV ...
  12. Hi Phil ... Another Beauty! Wondering if you have a backlit pic / version of this ... still not all that clear myself on what constitutes Mountain Blue and Backlighting brings out the glass color nic...
  13. Hi Warren, any reason for gelb rather than gelbgrun? ... Have I missed something else ... somewhere ... sometime ... ... or is it spellcheck to the rescue some more ... :-)
  14. The Seal is indeed in Cantz Images No. 260: PN 4824/1 Documented production appropriately in Kristal Glatt The Elephant linked above from Cantz is a PN 4821 Images No. 017 ... and even includes the...
  15. philmac51 ... only have the 1st Edition ... Has the piece in question arrived as yet ??
  16. Another link with some ? Relevance ... :-) ... particularly if you are looking for a name ....
  17. Definitely not a Bore .... Totally exciting !
  18. Excellent ...! I Think Rago Auction house sold one in a mixed lot some years ago ... and think it is that one which is on L.Com masquerading as a Boar (under pigs) ... Great size ! ... Great find !
  19. Possibly ... .... the black piece in particular ...
  20. Hi Lee Was a IV/103 I think (or similar) ... a little difficult to tell with the ribbed surface ... Check with Warren's posting of the Makart piece (12 months ago) ...
  21. Hi Vladimir ... Not sure if you noticed this piece has been put up on as an example of "Early Loetz Production" (under "Identifying Loetz Glass) ...
  22. Think we got that bar on the side down to (from base to top) 5cm black, 5cm white, 1cm black, 1cm white, 1cm black, 1cm white, 1cm black = 15cm total ! Fairly sure you contributed at the time ! :-)
  23. Al ... is there a smaller version of this PN about ... the 7685/276 is around 14" tall in the drawing ....
  24. Hi Inky ... Very Nice Missed this one in the Bohemian Glass thread ... The Number from here is "4147." Still potentially Loetz ... but would make it a PN rather than a Dek ...
  25. Sorry ... missed the "?" Haven't seen those z shaped 2's before either ... This one has an unambiguous IV
  26. That would make it pretty good buying ! Interest you in IX/202 ... picture is suggestive but not conclusive ...
  27. Thanks for the id and translation Warren. Have never been able track it down so had always thought of these as a Krystal Melusin ... Does the MK piece in PGM have any other info with it ? Is next to...
  28. Hi Paul Is a pretty piece ... The best answer you may get is that it remains a mystery as does much of the History of the Smaller Bohemian Glass makers of the 19th Century ! Think you may be bein...
  29. i.e. a Greek reference
  30. ... does put it into the same territory as Olympia ...
  31. Warren ... Could also try 7931 and 7934 ... Series 1 ... "Corinth" ...
  32. Almost looks like a cross between Oceanic and Diaspora ... think Alfredo posted something on Oceanic variants here a few months back ... Not seen a Diaspora using that glass color ... even under th...
  33. Hi Inky Think you have it right at this point ... With the dark brown lines should go to Onyx ... Did not want to ruin Vet50's opening comments ... The lighter Color on the back is actually quite c...
  34. ... was that a confession ?? ... or an attribution ? ... :-
  35. Many of the "pastry bag" pieces are turning out to be "700"series pieces ... wondering if the Dek index makes a lot more sense if viewed in that way ....
  36. Full title "Official Catalogue of the Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Nations 1851"
  37. Thanks Vet50 Fascinating links again ... From a different (more speculative) perspective that almost looks like an Olympia piece ... From the 1860's!
  38. Hi Alfredo Is an interesting listing of many of the names that are discussed here frequently ... Posted it at this magnification to be legible ... But there are 2 columns which I think run to a se...
  39. Hi Vet Have your link to the Sydney pic in one of my previous posts here ....and there is another one related to that picture in the 300 years of Harrach Glass .... Also saw a link (? from you) to...
  40. Please note: Pieces in the background of this picture are probably not all Loetz items ...
  41. Ivonne Another Lovely piece ... Decoration is very Loetz ... Somewhere (think it is Cantz) there is mention in a commentary from one of the early exhibitions of a "Horn" decor with a isolated red st...
  42. Or you could go here !
  43. Hi Ivonne Loetz in Gelbgrun is good .... Think it will turn out to be a I/43x when we find a number ... have not seen a marked / identified one yet .... The only difference from the I/439 lies in...
  44. Oops ... Missed the dimensions = 9.something inches or 24cm tall Thanks to all for the +comments & feedback ... All the best for 2015 !!!
  45. Hi Vladimir Thanks for the extra pics ... still difficult to resolve that first part ... Worth having a look at it under oblique lighting and magnification as it is sometimes possible to make out out...
  46. Great color too! Think it said massive before ... or did I miss the dimensions ... :-).
  47. Great color too!
  48. Very nice Interesting to see it is numbered twice ... 849/5 Could we have the dimensions ... ? 5cm or 5" tall by any chance? Cheers
  49. Hi Vladimir Could we have another picture of the numbers on the base to play with ... need to shoot across the base a little - probably 45º would be ideal - and would be helpful to turn it around so...
  50. Love the color combination! The shape reference is 6653 from 1896 ... from Das Bohmishe Glas Band III Thanks
