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 did, Sean!
  2. It was actually Hosch, Craig - I thought I had another mark with a connection to Palda, but have been unable to make the connection so far.
  3. Great, Al - would love to see it
  4. Outstanding! Thanks for sharing it!
  5. Outstanding! Thanks for sharing it!
  6. Jericho, better late than never, but I can tell you for sure that all three of these are Loetz.
  7. Agree with Craig on number 1 - it's a known Loetz form, and seems to be similar in technique to Campanula glass (internally decorated), which was patented by Loetz in 1936. The techniques on the other...
  8. Very nice bowl - I wish I could help with a maker, but I really have no idea on this one. It does show the influence of the glassmaking schools in Novy Bor and Kamenicky Senov.
  9. Amazing
  10. If anyone is still following this - how tall is this vase?
  11. Very fine example!
  12. I love these - jugendstil lighting is the best, and PK is the best of the best.
  13. Love it, Al - I was eyeballing that one myself. :) It is a late Series II PN - Check out PN II-8372 in Jitka's book.
  14. Worth the wait, Dave - that's the finest one I have ever seen. Congratulations! Very happy you were finally able to fill this spot in your collection.
  15. Really love this one. The Candia Spiraloptisch is a little gem, also.
  17. I love Myra crystal -and it's so under-rated.
  18. Thanks, T. :)
  19. There are a few pieces out there I suspect are Schliersee, but no drawing, so I am left to wonder. :)
  20. Deb, taking ownership of an object like this give me a sense of obligation to find out all I can about it. :)
  21. Actually, I do plan on having a conservator look at it. I'll let you know how it goes.
  22. Thanks, Alan - but this one will be hanging in my glass room :)
  23. Great piece- nice large size, and I love that it has a glossy, fire-polished surface and a textured background. I'll try to give you my take on the questions you have asked: The reason the vase is ...
  24. Substantial, beautiful example, Gary - congratulations!
  25. So sorry to hear about the damage. File a claim by all means, but it does look like the broken one could be repaired, especially since you have the broken off piece?
  26. Welcome, Gruff!
  27. Thanks, David- it's behind glass doors as we speak :)
  28. I think you're right about Haida and my money would definitely be on Carl Goldberg
  29. Photo #2 is DEK I/107:
  30. All I can give are my personal impressions - the Kralik spots seem to be smaller, more irregular, more three-dimensional, and a little less lustrous than their Loetz counter-parts.
  31. Zelasko doesn't agree on the banded decors, but I do.
  32. My very first Loetz piece was creta papillon - it really opened my eyes to a whole new world.
  33. I have one, too- same DEK pattern:
  34. I think that Delphi has proven to be hard to pin down. The "Delphi" sample tile in Neuwirth (Loetz 1900), p.220, plate 211 - shows that Delphi and Silberiris look almost the same, except that Silberi...
  35. It's a great piece, John! I don't think the paper pattern is a match though.
  36. Ian, I have a question for you - can you contact me at Thank you
  37. You know me, Frank - ever the bargain hunter
  38. This shade also corresponds to Loetz regular PN II-1/74.
  39. Check out PN II-2162 - I posted a scan on your post in the Jugendstil group. Nice buy!
  40. 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...
  41. Jericho, the first two pics are examples of Ausführung 224:
  42. 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.
  43. Thanks -that's what I thought - a pin dish
  44. Indeed they are - thank you
  45. Thanks, Kevin - Happy New Year to you, also
  46. Happy New Year, Marty - and Happy Hunting in 2016!
  47. Ah, what's not to love? Very, very nice piece, Brian!
  48. So glad you came away with it, Brian! Congratulations on a show-stopper!
  49. 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.
  50. Thanks, Rick - it is just as inky says - dynamite in a small package :)
