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 lean towards Legras on this one, Marty
  2. One of the best of its kind - nice pickup :)
  3. 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.
  4. You've been busy :)
  5. Same to you, Kevin!
  6. Thanks, Penny :)
  7. Absolutely beautiful!
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. Of course you know how I feel about it :) Love this vase.
  11. I'm picking up a Harrach vibe
  12. Eye heart this
  13. It looks like the stoppers evolved a little over the five or so years - from somewhat flatter in 1924 to fully round by 1927?
  14. Jerome Massier Fils - I sent you a link to check out
  15. shareurpassion, I will say that I am happy to finally have it safely behind glass doors. :)
  16. Thanks, Jeff - there is also a set currently listed on 1st Dibs. Such cool stuff!
  17. Thanks for the info, Ian - I'm kind of lost in the area of heraldy :)
  18. Add Josephinenhütte to the list of curled foot aficionados.
  19. Worth the price, no matter who made it :)
  20. Ian, check your email for a photo - this shape (and a similar decor on clear glass) is documented in Collectible Bohemian Glass 1880-1940, by Robert & Deborah Truitt. p 63, plate 4. Harrach, ca. 1900
  21. A lot about this piece says Harrach to me - the red ground, the shape, the decoration... great piece of glass!
  22. Frank, the PN is II-4365, ca. 1908
  23. Neither one would surprise me.
  24. Brian, I did, but this exact decor and shape are both in the Riedel case in Passau, according to Alisa's photos
  25. The white flake are called "Schneeflocken" in German (snowflakes) :) Nice piece.
  26. I think those pieces with the embossed thorn pattern are German, so Poschinger may not be far off.
  27. 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...
  28. I posted that article two years ago, and it does have a typo- I meant fourth piece from the left (JH), and I have done a fair bit of research in the two years since I posted. The pink and blue are gen...
  29. Wow - that one has it all, Brian - fantastic piece!
  30. Production Number III-1108, ca. 1920. The color is Mandarin
  31. Google "Smith's Old Timer" glass
  32. I was wondering if Changeant and Cameleon aren't actually kind of the same thing.
  33. Nice bit of research, Volkmar - thanks for posting!
  34. One of my favorite Kralik deco era decors. Nice to have a pair!
  35. My understanding of this type of glass is that the blanks were acquired from a variety of widely available commercial sources and decorated in this manner. So the shape alone may not tie it down to a ...
  36. Thanks - not vaseline - just crystal and green glass - non-UV reactive.
  37. If you search for Israeli Art Glass on eBay, you will find several similar types, some with labels. Similarly decorated art glass is being made even today by Rueven Art Glass (an American company), bu...
  38. This is not Bohemian - it was most likely made in Israel, ca. 1980s.
  39. Love the blue color
  40. Love that blue opal medici :)
  41. Brian, The piece of matt Hyalith shown in Mergl references book AH 140. wrg
  42. Thanks, everyone. Al, I have seen so many of these black (or even the purple iridescent), and the results are almost always the same - Purple ground = Kralik; Red ground = Harrach or PK (depending...
  43. Just browsing through and thought I would revisit this one - but I think the answer is already on this page. This vase is grün cisele on a colorless ground. I strongly suspect the decor is I/539. ...
  44. You are right about that, Brian - it's the kind of piece that makes me want to re-evaluate my whole light/camera setup.
  45. eye4beauty, several reasons come to mind: They didn't know enough to realize it was a genuine Loetz vase, and wanted to imply that it was with a fake signature. They thought for sure it wasn't L...
  46. Al, I agree with you that the signature is a fake. But again, nothing wrong with the vase itself.
  47. Another great example - I hope to find one some day :)
  48. Great piece, Al. There is a page of these (including one in the same shape as yours) on No need to worry about ...
  49. The one I have matches the drawing exactly, and the balls on that one are also solid. I've also seen a matching inkwell.
  50. Geez - look who's talking! :)
