  1. Thank you all for posting your kind remarks over the last several months. After all, what is the point in keeping these hidden when one can enjoy sharing them with other likeminded art glass crazies.
  2. I added another photo of this vase which shows the ozone color extending lower down in the body.
  3. SteveS - The "Ozone" is one uniform color all the way down. The blue is cased in clear glass like that of the metal yellow ground in other Paris pieces. It is thicker near the bottom which causes t...
  4. ozmarty - Yes, it is lost wax.
  5. Glad to. Since the site only accepts four immages per page, I will post the new ones on a new page.
  6. I did not put any additional information in the description above as I didn't want to influence any other opinions. I acquired it believing it to be a Paris piece. I do have Ploil's book but there i...
  7. Tony - You'll get no arguement from me. Yes, 356. This is the same vase as seen on the "Loetz.com" website under decors index, then under 1900 to 1905, then under Hofstatter. It is listed there a...
  8. VERY VERY FINE
  9. LoetzDance - I would gladly put you in my will if it weren't already overloaded with children and grandchildren.
  10. SteveS - That hadn't occurred to me but I agree.............It reminds me of a poster for a rock concert.
  11. For an example of a PG 1/215 see Hatje Kantz color plate #74. In the PG decors 2/351 and 3/460 the parallel threading is wrapped around the piece with a machine and the spacing is very uniform, where...
  12. Tiffany pieces that were displayed in the various expositions were usually marked "Special Exhibit", "Exhibition Piece", or "Exhibitiion" with the name of the exposition, etc. along with the signature...
  13. Tony - I didn't want to say that it is a one off, but I think it could be.
  14. SteveS - Most all glass colors are made with metal oxides. Gold is an exception in that it is held in suspension as a colloid. I don't believe the atmosphere has any effect in this case, and I don'...
  15. It's the same one
  16. I have added a photo to show the raspberry prunt covering the pontil scar.
  17. Thanks Tony. Very descriptive!
  18. What a good friend to have!
  19. Heat reactive glass is simply glass that changes color (reacts) under differing heating conditions, caused by the chemical make up of the glass. In this case the pale green changes to blue where the ...
  20. Scott- Yes, the holder comes appart. One of the three sections is held in place with a small screw from underneath the ring. The other two sections are fixed.
  21. SteveS- Your wish is my command.
  22. The vase is signed "Quezal H 309"
  23. Hello cogito- I acquired my information on the Loetz-Dresser relationship from Ricke "Loetz Bohmisches Glas 1889-1940" book I. There are five attributions to Dresser on pages 101 to 103, color plate...
  24. A very prominent English designer by the name of Christopher Dresser is responsible for the shape of this vase. This angular design is certainly a lot different from what one would normally consider ...
  25. LoetzBuddies- You're probably right. I've had it about a year.
  26. Hello SteveS- Iwill be happy to send my glass pieces over to you for study......as soon as I am finished studying them myself. It may be a while.....after thirty years of study, it seems that I'm ...
  27. In my missive above I failed to mention what happens if the timing is off when reheating the glass. It will turn an ugly shade of liver, which would probably not be very marketable. Possibly the exc...
  28. A brief explanation for why red glass is more difficult to make. When first mixed and melted the glass is clear colorless or slightly amber. While it is worked at the furnace it stays in that condit...
  29. The three most common elements used for making red glass are copper, selenium, and gold. Copper is used for most everyday red glass such as vases, stoplights, etc. The shades are slightly different ...
  30. EXTREMELY FINE !!!!!
  31. ks85- Sorry for the delay in answering your question. I've been out of town. Yes, gold was used to create this color. A couple of the other elements used to create ruby glass are selenium, and copp...
  32. A similar piece can be found in Revi's "American Art Nouveau Glass" on the fifth color page following page 110, above the wisteria lamp. He called it Samian Red, but I have seen other Tiffany reds ca...
  33. Yes, the shape is a Marie Kirschner design. It is my understanding that she had an agreement with Loetz which permitted them to use her designs with their decors in exchange for producing her pieces....
  34. Zowie- I wish I could do this, but it's Loetz.
  35. These pieces are always so eyecatching.
  36. Extremely nice!
  37. Yes, it has the greenish threads and two silver-yellow bands, one near the top and the other near the bottom with drawn vertical strings connecting them, but on a green opal ground. I contend that th...
  38. I was not questioning that it's Loetz. I was writing to see if there was any disagreement over calling it a PG 1/214, as the picture on page 305 of the Cantz book shows thicker upper and lower bands ...
  39. I don't believe that I would call this a miniature. Including the handles it is 6 inches in diameter.
  40. The PG 2/187 pictured on page 306 is also a shade, or blown like a globe shade without a pontil and polished rim. If the 2/490 piece on page 307 were inverted so that the opening is at the top, the b...
  41. kairomalre-I base my assignment of 2/490 on the fact that if the drawing of the globe shade on page 307 of the Hatje Kantz book were to be inverted, as it would be if it were completed as a vase, the ...
  42. Thank you- I am flattered by all your comments. To compare my work with that of Barry Sautner's is a real compliment. I don't believe there are any photos of my work on the web, but it was featured...
  43. ks85-your wish is my command.-14 inches tall.
  44. A wonderful piece of Quezal
  45. My sentiments exactly. What is life without risk. I must say that my risk taking has payed off far more times than not, and if not, was virtually always remedied.
  46. Another picture is posted
  47. The vase is 6 inches tall.
  48. Tony- I posted my comments in a light hearted manner and didn't intend for it to be taken any other way. Sorry if I sounded angry. And, one of these days I will post some of my work.
  49. Dasullywon- The lip is just a smoothly flowing curve like all the others of this type. I'll try to post a picture of it soon.
  50. Tony- 60% of my collection is Loetz, so I need to post some of my "lesser" pieces in among the Loetz. I don't want to show all of the best pieces first. What's the fun in that? The blue diatreta ...
