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. Nice, large example, Alan - and the metal mount makes it extra special. Enjoy!
  2. Very neat little item!
  3. Beautiful piece all the way around - nice add to your collection.
  4. Love the loops on the sides. This is probably my favorite color combo for this decor.
  5. Thanks, Rick - I love the closeup pic - it's interesting how the application of the oil spots seems to affect the combed threads beneath - kind of pushes them outwards. Glass making is a fascinating a...
  6. Yeah, Kevin... now I'm done for a while! :)
  7. I don't think so, Jeff. His original design drawing was for a lamp shade, which Loetz reproduced the shape of rather faithfully, but his decor designation was a rough sketch only - little more than po...
  8. Steve, if it is green at all (I know I said May green).... it very well could just be melusin with a greenish tint. All through the Cantz book when there is a pale green titania layer, it is just refe...
  9. Hi Steve - The other colors are mentioned in the Series II book - PN II-8652, for example, lists makart, rot, and schwarz as ground colors for Ausf 146. There is also an enticing description for a...
  10. Fortunately for me, the price was still quite reasonable. :) The red one in the last photo is another matter. That one was a steal of a deal. :)
  11. Rick, he did know they were Loetz, because he saw Kai's article on (it is a pair of green bowls)
  12. All III-2410, correct. It isn't always true that different sizes have the same PN, but it is true in this case.
  13. Yes we do, Rick - never stop learning is my motto :)
  14. Hello, Ivan - based on your description, I believe your bowl would be the larger size PN III-2410/25 cm width in cristall a.rubin
  15. You're welcome, Kai - thank you for leading the way once again.
  16. It took 5 years, Deb, but I finally found a Boule-Boule. :)
  17. Marty, that would have been a neat trick :)
  18. Thanks, Alan - same to you
  19. Stupendous find, Kai! I love it for several reasons, least of which is that it is so well documented and gives us a definitive view of what Harrach malachit looks like.
  20. Great color on these
  21. Outstanding piece and research! Congratulations on finding such a beauty!
  22. Thanks to all for the comments
  23. So it would appear that the Richard cameos were not exclusive to Etling. :) Always great to have a piece with an original label :)
  24. Forgive me for being late to this party - for what it's worth, I have the Pazaurek reference that Ales mentioned, and the photo shown is a piece with a similar motif, but very different in a couple of...
  25. The piece is opalescent (milky opaque), not satin. The bottom is a chunk of solid green uranium glass, basically transparent green.
  26. That thing cleaned up NICE. :)
  27. A sparkling jewel! Congratulations, Andy - well worth the convolution (which I am happy to help untangle for you) :)
  28. Never mind the ID - just keep them, use them, love them. :)
  29. Alan, this is a known Loetz shape and decor; known as in that they are Loetz, but not known what the decor is called exactly. That brushed on effect is found on other pieces and in other colors on sha...
  30. Thanks for leading the way, Kai! :)
  31. I don't know what all the colors were, but from your photos, I would say steingrün, neurot, and orangeopal to name a few. :)
  32. Jericho, I believe these are all Ausführung 142, which came in several colors, but is rarely seen.
  33. Glad to see you found one, Rick.. Worth the wait, I would say
  34. Michelle, I have the twin of that piece (the Live Auction one).
  35. I don't really understand techniques all that well, so I'm sure I'm not describing it right - It may not be the iridescence, but rather a stain or some other chemical process. I added a new photo to s...
  36. Any time, Alan - I did look at your other vase and commented there.
  37. Hi, Alan - as requested, my assessment of this vase is that it is also not Loetz. This is not bad news, however - in my opinion this is a much harder to find piece by the Bavarian firm Glasfabrik Schl...
  38. Lovely piece, Alan - not Loetz Carneol, I'm afraid, but rather much more likely Harrach, due to the shape and decor. Carneol is much more uniform in color... red and white only. The bump around the ne...
  39. So it is a little different than Diaspora Neu - really cool, interesting piece! Congrats to Andy!
  40. My pleasure - the piece in my original article is now in the collection of a close friend - we are just caretakers of these beauties - they have been floating around for 100 years. It's fun to imagine...
  41. It's a Hans Bolek design - see my article here:
  42. It is, Michelle.
  43. Olebodie - I saw your vase and read the comments and I respect Kai's opinion about its attribution. I think he's probably right.
  44. That one has it all -congratulations on a wonderful find!
  45. Indeed - sometimes I have to type those words several times before auto-correct will give up and let me type what I intend! Andy and I were just having this conversation - that the kristall schiefgewa...
  46. Hi, Steve - I went through Eddy's old site and couldn't find any reference to that. My name comes from PMC VI - the only reference to a "medallion" is in the definition of the "Figuren" decor - it usu...
  47. Spectacular piece, Volkmar. Congratulations on finding such a rarity.
  48. I love both of them. On this one, I do love the red tint and the decor, which goes all the way up to the neck. I love mine, too - it would have been just as hard a choice if it was me doing the sendin...
  49. It is the same glass as is used in the Empire pieces that glow brightly under UV. It does also match the apfels/boule pieces. Ausf. 96 exhibits the spreading darker green (gelbgrün) found in glatt on ...
  50. Steve, there is much more "Grün" in gelbgrün. "Gelb Texas" comes from the production notes.
