Comments

  1. Pretty, bot a Kralik example.
  2. My response in comment 10 is a response to a question and comments by a user who's account has recently been deleted from this forum.
  3. Thank You very much for the information. She will be thrilled to know that. We really got it for a song at the show. She loves it regardless, but knowing it's origins will make her appreciate it even ...
  4. For those that read this post and find that the comments do not seem to make sense in some parts, it is due to the fact that the account of one of the people involved in the "conversation" has been de...
  5. I would snag it if you can. They are not worth a ton of money, but they are really cool looking, and extremely hard to find.
  6. This is a piece by Morgantown, a US company. The line is referred to as Moonscape. It is not very common, and really pretty infrequently seen. Difficult to find references for it. I have a piece like ...
  7. The bowl in the upper left of the second image has been replaced with a Kralik Lines and Canes bowl in the same shape. (Thanks Dave) The original bowl in the image, although quite similar, was shown b...
  8. Thanks a lot for that Jericho, as I appreciate the support. To be honest with you, the nonsense has gone on for so long that when I feel it is appropriate, I simply respond with my research findin...
  9. These are fine... Thanks, Craig
  10. Thanks Scott, and you are welcome. Always my pleasure to provide something of interest.
  11. I made nothing my own, other than to address what I feel are incorrect observations regarding the similarity of the the three shapes, and their being the same. You found the shapes to be a "nice ma...
  12. One of the critical aspects of empirical research is to pay close attention to everything, but very specifically to the small details. Although the shape of the Worthpoint example with the Royal Ar...
  13. Royal Art Glass did not have an address. It was not a company, but a line of glass made by Welz..... at least according to the Glasmarken Lexicon....... but you know that...... so again, I am not ex...
  14. The mark on this vase is a mark which is known to be a Kralik provenance mark. This example is Kralik.
  15. Royal Art Glass is a product line manufactured and labeled by Welz..... One you seemingly continue to confuse somehow with the Royal Art Glass Co. of New York. A company that produced lamps and has n...
  16. For clarification, and resourced from a Purdue University online writing lab, regarding the use of quotation marks: "The primary function of quotation marks is to set off and represent exact langua...
  17. When Jericho posted this, he was actually quite familiar with my Butler research which started more than 3 years prior to this post bu Jericho. We do not need to have a survey. I trust those that...
  18. For what it is worth, as a researcher, I never believe opinions which are presented without supporting evidence of any kind...... unless of course, I know the source and have a high degree of respect...
  19. I was quite clear I thought, in my explanation of the deletion of our "discussion". Lisa. If you are gong to put things in quotation marks as you did above, you should not "quote" your paraphrasin...
  20. Spatter decors in multiple colors are certainly not completely matchable using black and white line art. Showing the same shape in a Kralik decor would certainly show that the shape was made by Kralik...
  21. Dave, I was curious if it would be OK to copy and use your image of this bowl in another post on CW and also for my website? Thanks.
  22. Every piece Jericho posted here, with the exception of the bowl in question, were identified as Kralik production long before being matched to this ad. As these are hand produced product, mostly m...
  23. OK.. Maybe you could show something to show how you arrived at that opinion, as my findings after 4 years of studying the question, seem to indicate that many of the ads are quite the opposite, and s...
  24. The bowl in the link below is a Kralik bowl in a recognized Kralik décor. The foot design of that bowl seems to be a better match to the drawing than the more vertical foot side on the bowl that Jeric...
  25. I am curious exactly what your point is Charcoal? Here is what see. The set matching Truitt II, shown in your link with the Welz Royal Art Glass labels would seem to indicate that the unident...
  26. Hello, Your basket is definitely not Fenton, and in all likelihood is a Bohemian example. Great color and décor on it....
  27. My favorite is the second example... great colors, organic form, tactile surface.... very nice.... all very nice though....
  28. Fabulous grouping.... Peggy loves this one!! And so do I.... is it gorgeous..... And when you get it all together like this... it really speaks volumes to their unique artistry and use of colors.....
  29. The biggest difference when comparing Ian's vase and these two to the link above, is that they all have fire polished rims and applied handles with no pontil mark. The example linked above has a p...
  30. I would tend to agree with Kyle now, in that I would say his pieces with impressed marks open the door wider. I had not seen the pieces he has with impressed marks. None of the pieces with impressed ...
  31. I am sure that Kyle (yesterdaysglass) will be more than fine with your link and reference to his post.
  32. Always glad to help.
  33. I guess your definition of what a marker is and my definition are completely different. It is not the longevity of something that makes it a production marker. Quite the contrary...... It would be...
  34. One other point regarding the label would be that although you can not see it well, or very clearly, it appears to be a form of label that was used for quite some time on Rückl product, and appears as...
  35. OK... I turned up the brightness and can see it..... My monitor was darkened. So it is a Rückl bowl. I still do not get the point. No one said Ruckl did not make a bowl with this type of foot...
  36. I knew you would be!!
  37. My pleasure...... Which also means the other piece in the same shape may actually may be the ID of a new Rindskopf décor. Michelle will be happy... :-)
  38. Sure.... that may possibly be a Rückl bowl, although I would certainly not take the sellers word for it. It is not in the linked ad above, or any set of the Tango exhibition images I am aware of, so I...
  39. Personally, the amethyst ground and decor style would have me lean toward Rindskopf as the production house for the piece. That would also have me lean towards Rindskopf for the example in the third ...
  40. A "marker" as generally applied to glass production, would be something that could be assigned to a single company's production and used to ID their production exclusively. It can be a decor, a techni...
  41. Thanks Marty..... what a great analogy...... had not looked at it that way..... Thanks.... I love that!!
  42. Ooooops...... It is certainly worth noting that many companies used this style of foot, and the foot alone "would not" point to an attribution.
  43. Recent, and absolutely indisputable, research findings have indicated that this style of foot was indeed used by Welz on some production. As a result of that, and the decor, I would tend to agree that...
  44. Hi Dave. I would agree these are by the same company as each other, and also likely the same as in the link to the post by Jericho. I am not sure that the Ruckl attribution is correct from the first ...
  45. Thanks share.... time and age have taught me that patience and persistence are almost always rewarded..... Thanks Tom... I really appreciate the support, and the photographic help!! Working on so...
  46. I agree completely Kevin.
  47. Thanks Scott, I just keep plugging away at it, and more and more information just keeps coming. I guess patience and persistence do pay off!!
  48. I have deleted what was becoming a very long and circular discussion which seemed to me to be going nowhere at all...... That is not why I posted this information. If one believes the work I have d...
  49. Yes, It is all cleared up now..... thanks..... and I simply provided the full image on my website with a link directly to that website page in the comments. Real easy to do that way instead, and ma...
  50. Thanks Ian, and thanks to others for taking a look.
