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. Hi - if you would like to email photos of your piece, I would be happy to take a look. Send to Thanks
  2. Well, in fairness I should say that my interest in this artist's work is rather new. I haven't been waiting 40 years to find one - but it did take 40 years after it was made for me to discover it! The...
  3. Nice buy - the mandarin yellow color really pops!
  4. The inkwell is home at last! Very, very nice
  5. Fantastic piece - great size. I have a tiny one that is damaged. Love this one
  6. mtb, thanks so much for the information - very much appreciated!
  7. Great example - never seen that shape before
  8. I think what this shows is that there was a separate series designation for these floral type enameled decorations from the early 1890s that is different from the later "pastry bag" type decorations.
  9. Sean - sorry, I have no idea where they might have been made.
  10. Sean, I have one too - not Kralik - modern, I think. Mine arrived smelling like perfume.
  11. Thanks, Rick - it was a bad photo special - the design of the silver galvanized decoration drew me to it and made me think it was probably better than it appeared in the auction photos - and it is :)
  12. Love the way the design fits onto this shape
  13. Deb, I thought we had agreed that "glatt" referred to nothing more than a smooth surface. At any rate, this piece is a shiny and glossy as anything else on the Ausf. 129 page, and shinier than any oth...
  14. Love this one, Al - my favorite of the bunch
  15. Deb, I will certainly try. :)
  16. aka if Momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy
  17. OK, sweetheart - you have dibs. (my wife, folks) :)
  18. Thanks, guys - this one was a real thrill to find.
  19. Mac, it is a colorless outer layer over an opaque yellow ground. The depth of color and iridescence are what set it apart. I would not call it MOP or air trap - it's pure tango.
  20. It's a sweet little vase - you're welcome- I would also like to say to those tuning in that trading can be a good way to freshen up the collection without spending a lot of money :)
  21. Yes indeed, Tony - that one is PN 330, on the same page.
  22. That's what I love about posting here, Kevin - learning from others, and sharing what I've learned. :)
  23. Teplitz turned out some amazing furnace decorated glass! Nice group of inkwells!
  24. I wish - saw the DEK 439 and knew somehow it would wind up here. I thought of your 7993 immediately. They were doing some cool stuff with shapes right about then.
  25. Great piece, Marty - has it all... thanks for bringing it out of the shadows :)
  26. I lean towards Legras on this one, Marty
  27. One of the best of its kind - nice pickup :)
  28. Deb, I sure did notice both things. Series II has the right descriptions, but the wrong photo. I am also curious about Orchis. I have started doing some preliminary searching, but nothing yet.
  29. You've been busy :)
  30. Same to you, Kevin!
  31. Thanks, Penny :)
  32. Absolutely beautiful!
  33. Could be, Marty - or it could be just bad penmanship! :) Thanks for the comments, racer4 - it means a lot - as hard as I try, mistakes are sometimes made - the key is to stick to the formula - I a...
  34. Frank, the shape is similar (or equal to) PN II-514, ca. 1900. The pattern doesn't list this decor, but it's not unheard of for the drawing not to include all of the decors a shape came in, particular...
  35. Of course you know how I feel about it :) Love this vase.
  36. I'm picking up a Harrach vibe
  37. Eye heart this
  38. It looks like the stoppers evolved a little over the five or so years - from somewhat flatter in 1924 to fully round by 1927?
  39. Jerome Massier Fils - I sent you a link to check out
  40. shareurpassion, I will say that I am happy to finally have it safely behind glass doors. :)
  41. Thanks, Jeff - there is also a set currently listed on 1st Dibs. Such cool stuff!
  42. Thanks for the info, Ian - I'm kind of lost in the area of heraldy :)
  43. Add Josephinenhütte to the list of curled foot aficionados.
  44. Worth the price, no matter who made it :)
  45. Frank, the PN is II-4365, ca. 1908
  46. Neither one would surprise me.
  47. Brian, I did, but this exact decor and shape are both in the Riedel case in Passau, according to Alisa's photos
  48. The white flake are called "Schneeflocken" in German (snowflakes) :) Nice piece.
  49. I think those pieces with the embossed thorn pattern are German, so Poschinger may not be far off.
  50. Hello, Lisa- just so we're crystal clear on this - I never said, nor implied, that Lee's vase was the same shape (or decor) as mine (nor did she). It clearly is not. This is Lee's posting, and I do...
