Main interests are Loetz, Kralik, Rindskopf and Harrach, but there are so many more that deserve our attention! I also enjoy research and love a good glass mystery. I collaborate with an international group of collectors and have great fun doing it! (Read more)

  1. I agree - I think someone had a really good day at work the day this was made. :)
  2. Nice - I have the same shape in Oceanic - Neptune is a decor that has not found its way to me yet
  3. Still love it
  4. Thanks, everyone :)
  5. Steve - if you have a IV/103, can you email a photo to me at
  6. Nice - at least if they had to put silver overlay on it, they were mindful of where they put it in relation to the decor on the vase. Beautiful colors!
  7. Hi, Nora - the answer to me is an unqualified "maybe". (either one) - what I think is that the blank may have come from either house (JH is a good possibility), but was decorated elsewhere - one of th...
  8. Brian, outside the one example in Zelasko's second JH book, neither have I.
  9. I had one like the tall red one in the last photo - it had the straight line Czechoslovakia mark.
  10. Spectacular examples! Congratulations - they are really beautiful. I would love to find one of these some day.
  11. Thanks - actually, while this one looks blue/violet from the outside, it is actually a deep ruby red ground.
  12. Love it -whatever it is :)
  13. Wow - what a footprint that one must have! Really nice
  14. Love the color
  15. Jags, you might be able to make a case for tango, but I really don't feel like this piece fits that bill. The blue is muted (frosted), except for the silver stripes around the rim, shoulder, and base....
  16. With those cartouche shaped indents - Kralik. PK in general is more organic in shape and hand-tooled.
  17. I agree that this piece is Rindskopf, and let's throw Loetz into the mix of makers who did martele, as well as Fritz Heckert. Setting aside the fact that this shape has been seen in other Rindskop...
  18. I like it - I do have a few observations on the use of the term Czech Deco Export as it applies to this piece. Let me preface with this: I am not opposed to the term Czech Deco Export in describing Cz...
  19. I agree with Frank - they say "need" is a relative term, but not in this case. Objectively speaking, I NEED one. :)
  20. Love the new photos - the side by side is really cool
  21. Wow - what a flurry. Far too few things are certain in our world, aren't they? With that in mind... we have to concede that some decors are certainly duplicated between companies, as are shapes. I can...
  22. Welcome back from the desert, Dave. Beautiful vase!
  23. I can't imagine how huge that is - I have one that's about 12" tall, and I thought that was big... wow.
  24. Outstanding - and a mirrored pair, too. Congratulations, Kai!
  25. Fran, it sounds like you are talking about a type of marmoriertes, or marbled glass. I would just call it marbled. :)
  26. I have two left - both pretty small.
  27. If I had to lose out to someone, I'm glad it was you, Al! Congrats!
  28. My wife would say I passed that mark some time ago :)
  29. If I didn't have a co-worker in my office named Ian, I might consider changing my name - easier to spell :) No worries - I knew what you meant! Best, Warren
  30. The wife has spoken LOL
  31. Anne, it has to be ca. 1900
  32. Thanks, guys.
  33. Interesting to see the color swirls in the interior
  34. Thanks for all the comments - they are very useful! I was trying to be careful about the description on this piece - initially, I thought I even knew who the designer was, but I came to realize sev...
  35. Thanks Gary
  36. Great piece - and the label is a nice bonus
  37. I love these in gold; green, not so much :)
  38. Glad it's going into such a fine collection, Frank. :)
  39. That makes our job fun, don't it? :)
  40. They say elephants are good luck :)
  41. Any time
  42. Pretty sure I have a pulled feather piece in the same shape, but I won't be able to photograph it until tomorrow night.
  43. Now that is close
  44. I like it quite a bit. I don't have any real reason to think Kralik over any other maker. Loetz did so a similar shape, but this isn't that, either. Maybe Poschinger or one of the other Czech/Bavarian...
  45. Now you're gonna have me going through my cabinets looking for "pock marks' :)
  46. Thanks, Deb - now, if I can just figure out how to tell Norma apart from Silberiris...
  47. I agree with Brian - Historic Revival piece from the 19th century. Pretty cool. :)
  48. Looks great with the light coming through. :)
  49. In fact, she has incredible eyes! :)
  50. Lee, I was happy to offer it to you at my cost... even though it wasn't the same as your old one, it's a great example that I'm sure you will enjoy.
