  1. Beautiful! Now I need to retract my eyeballs back into their sockets :-)
  2. Especially love the little JIP :-)
  3. Thanks JEV1A... I bought this one already restored, but of course anything in mint original condition is better than something in mint restored condition. I'm with you... the main thing is the accurac...
  4. As a Wedgwood collector, I appreciate that piece :)
  5. Thank you S to G :-) Thanks to all for the loves & comments !
  6. Thanks Tony, amazing how even though made 100 years ago, the form implies modernism.
  7. Thank you Czechman!
  8. Thanks man!
  9. Come to the dark side... we have cookies! (LOL :-)
  10. Regardless of who made it... very cool item!
  11. @ LD - yes he did... in fact I was outbid on a 14" example a couple of months ago :-(
  12. Cool! - Thanks S to G :-)
  13. @ Mikko... that is Loetz Creta (green) Glatt decor in a shape called by many a "Tulpenvase". The Glatt series was first produced in the mid/late 1890s and continued for a number of years thereafter. I...
  14. The Lalique piece reminds me quite a lot of some of MC Escher's sculptural work. Of course, they worked during the same era... fish food for thought :-)
  15. Thanks Inky & Sean... cobalt is always one of my fav. colors, andI really like these early Jugendstil shapes too :)
  16. Thanks to all for the kind thoughts and words :-)
  17. Marty, if he made a really big vase, it would be the Zweifel tower :) LoetzDance - I have a couple of his other vases I will eventually get around to posting - one about 8.5" and the other a 3" min...
  18. That is exceptionally nice!
  19. Thanks czechman, BTW, that is a neat Oceanik you picked up!
  20. I'm not letting that dobie anywhere near my collection of glass cats ;-P Cool piece Sherlock!
  21. @ Stillwater... drink from it then smash it in the fireplace (LOL :)
  22. Tony - like all caretakers, I enjoy it while in my hands knowing I will eventually pass it on. Hope everything is well with you & yours :)
  23. ... & GSO :)
  24. ... & Betsy :)
  25. ... & vetraio50 :)
  26. Thanks Bellin68 :)
  27. No doubt they came from the same hutte... yours is a neat shape. Thanks for posting... I marked the mystery solved...
  28. Great! Nice to see another example of this decor!
  29. Thank you all for the loves and kind comments. So far, the Rindskopfs have it. In a couple of days I will probably edit the story to be mystery solved. Thank you for your help. Cheers!
  30. Thanks Al - Rindskopf was one of the attributions I had previously heard... could it be a variation on their "bullet" shape? That must not be a very common decor.
  31. Roman lead seals... used much like sealing wax.
  32. Possibly Alexander III
  33. Greek - Macedonian, c. 300s BC - Shield obverse, helmet reverse. Nice find!
  34. That's a Byzantine half follis - the K indicates the denomination in Greek... a full follis would be twice the size and have an M... some Byzantine Folles were marked in Roman numerals... XXXX for a f...
  35. Awesome Al, I would love to have a green one! Yours with the pontil must have a worked rim.
  36. I guess I should have said twisted, but I meant tortured as in the old definition sense of "contortion, twisting, distortion" ... I love word play :-)
  37. You did alright. $150 is a good buy... one of my favorite glass decors... I have a similar bowl with the "Thumbprint" optic in my collection, only the rim is straight, not ruffled, and the red glass a...
  38. Also for future... a few other Pepita shapes to watch for...
  39. The pontil is where the glass is attached to a rod at the bottom while the rim is being finished. In quality glass, the mark is frequently ground and flame polished to smooth the mark where it was sub...
  40. LCT is a fake Tiffany signature added at a later time. Rindskopf Pepita is very desirable in its own right and Bohemian glass collectors value it, but of course it isn't as expensive as Tiffany. It da...
  41. Absolutely 100% Rindskopf Pepita - Nice bowl! I bet it has a beautiful polished pontil on the bottom too.
  42. Thank you for the kind comments :-)
  43. That #3 is extremely nice and seldom seen for sale. Congratulations!
  44. Thanks - not many modern American studio movement followers here on CW, but lately I've been collecting Ipsen because of the Virginia connection, and it was one year ago that he passed away... trying ...
  45. Ranulph Fitz Robert & Mary Bigod had two sons, Ralph & Ranulph. The eldest, Ralph Fitz Ranulph, inherited Middleham. He had only daughters, the eldest of whom married a Neville. It was through them th...
  46. GSO - I undertook the study to provide my children with knowledge of our ancestry, which includes the lowly along with the lofty. In addition to the nobility, our family includes AEolian islanders, Ge...
  47. LLL - William Longespee would have been Roger's step-son, and Hugh le Bigod's half brother. Roger himself did not get along with his half brothers either. His mother was Juliana de Vere, who divorced ...
  48. Thanks LLL... Roger's daughter Mary married Ranulf Fitz Robert, Lord of Middleham, of what would eventually become the Fitz Randolph family. We descend through their younger son.
  49. @Al - we all descend from one family of humans living in Africa about 70,000 years ago. I just love history!
  50. Genealogy... another of my hobbies GSO... your grandmother could very well be, but research takes a lot of time and effort. It took three years to do the research in order to satisfactorily prove 25 g...
