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. Check out PN II-2162 - I posted a scan on your post in the Jugendstil group. Nice buy!
  2. This vase is documented as an Otto Thamm design for Fritz Heckert, ca. 1900. There is one identical to this in the Museum Karkonoskie Jelenia Gora. I would be happy to send you a scan from the Heckert...
  3. Jericho, the first two pics are examples of Ausführung 224:
  4. It was fortuitous - the seller said that they were from an estate where they had been in the family from the beginning. Brand new to the market.
  5. Right, Marty - similar design to some of the sand-blasted pieces by Delatte in the 1920s. Interesting that the Loetz etched silberiris pieces were done about 15 years earlier.
  6. I'm going to remain neutral on the Loetz discussion until something more concrete comes along. But as Alisa pointed out, we know for sure that Harrach did this decor. Either way, it's nice to have one...
  7. Thanks -that's what I thought - a pin dish
  8. Indeed they are - thank you
  9. Thanks, Kevin - Happy New Year to you, also
  10. Happy New Year, Marty - and Happy Hunting in 2016!
  11. Ah, what's not to love? Very, very nice piece, Brian!
  12. So glad you came away with it, Brian! Congratulations on a show-stopper!
  13. I'm pleased to say that the rim chip is a very shallow flake. I could probably have it polished out, if I even wanted to bother with it.
  14. Thanks, Rick - it is just as inky says - dynamite in a small package :)
  15. Because of the early Loetz decor, I rather think this is PN I-3146 (see on the drawing near the top where it says L 3146) - that is the regular Loetz production PN, and dates to the early to mid 1890s...
  16. Frank, I literally laughed out loud when I read that. :)
  17. Fantastic - first time I've ever seen one like this :)
  18. Technically, Marty, the spots are red. :) So glad you took a chance on this piece and helped us solve another mystery.
  19. It is heavy crystal
  20. One that you have to hold to appreciate - such a hard piece to photograph. Nicely done. :)
  21. That's what I thought when I first saw it. :)
  22. That's a great book to have, Ian - my copy is in German (which is significantly easier for me to translate).
  23. I don't know about the shape (haven't looked for it), but braun silberiris with blue iridescence is a real Loetz thing.
  24. I have one identical to your new one (have had it for several years). Nice to have both, and in bronce martele AND bronce glatt!
  25. Gillian - you can call me Warren - that's my name :) Thanks, Anne! :)
  26. Amazing piece, Rick - he sure hasn't lost his touch! :)
  27. Gillian - I think the word used by the manufacturer is the German word "deckeldose", or lidded (box, canister, jar, whatever...). I guess what you call it depends on what you put in it. :)
  28. The shape is attributed to Powolny, but not sure about the decor. I actually scanned the drawing last night while looking for something else. I'm away from my books at the moment, but will look into i...
  29. PN III-282/I
  30. One thing to keep in mind is that the area in between the feet (where each signature is) is very small - a half-inch space per side at most, so I imagine it was a fairly tight squeeze, and given the l...
  31. For what it's worth, I think the signature is legitimate. One thing that makes it appear a bit sloppy is that whoever signed the piece went over it twice. However, if you look at the signature in deta...
  32. Think of the word foot with an "s" at the end, starting with L instead of F. Check out this vide0 - they say it at the 2:29 mark - "Die firma Loetz". ...
  33. Hi, Michelle - beautiful vase - a couple of notes - the decor is "Candia silberiris" (vs. Candida) and the word on the drawing is actually "aufgetrieben", which refers to the fire-polished rim.
  34. Based on the texture
  35. Kralik snakeskin; not Rindskopf striated
  36. Never been to the Pier show, but it's on the bucket list :)
  37. Steve - thank you - can you email me a photo of the mark on yours?
  38. Thanks, Brian - sorry, I almost never use LiveAuctioneers... but I thought I spied a mark on the bottom - it was between this one and another orange opal on eBay - that one went for a bit more, I thin...
  39. Very nice, Rick -we were there, too - sorry our paths didn't cross :)
  40. Kerry, my wife claims all the blue ones - they are her favorites also.
  41. Do a Google image search on "burnt orange" - that's what it looks like to me.
  42. I met him at the Baltimore Summer show - great guy.
  43. Jeff, I picked it up in Baltimore, but I've been actually paying on it for a while. :)
  44. Michelle, I'm not real good on the technical stuff, but it seems to me like there would have been a resist, exposure to vapors, then filling in fine details with decorator's ink, then perhaps a anothe...
  45. The mark and label on the bottom tells the story - Poschinger, made in Germany. Fairly recent production.
  46. Really? I would love to see that one, Brian... Is there a link to it?
  47. Nice size and shape - good grab!
  48. Tony is right - it is Poschinger, designed by Karl Schmoll von Eisenwerth, ca. 1900-1905 Reference Karl Schmoll von Eisenwerth - Malerei/Graphik/Glaskunst, by Clementine Schack von Wittenau (publis...
  49. Definitely A. 165 - Production number is III-341, ca. 1914 - great piece!
  50. Michelle, I think that is absolutely the case. I'm sure you'll get the next one :)
