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. Thanks to all for the comments
  2. So it would appear that the Richard cameos were not exclusive to Etling. :) Always great to have a piece with an original label :)
  3. 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...
  4. The piece is opalescent (milky opaque), not satin. The bottom is a chunk of solid green uranium glass, basically transparent green.
  5. That thing cleaned up NICE. :)
  6. A sparkling jewel! Congratulations, Andy - well worth the convolution (which I am happy to help untangle for you) :)
  7. Never mind the ID - just keep them, use them, love them. :)
  8. 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...
  9. Thanks for leading the way, Kai! :)
  10. I don't know what all the colors were, but from your photos, I would say steingrün, neurot, and orangeopal to name a few. :)
  11. Jericho, I believe these are all Ausführung 142, which came in several colors, but is rarely seen.
  12. Glad to see you found one, Rick.. Worth the wait, I would say
  13. Michelle, I have the twin of that piece (the Live Auction one).
  14. 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...
  15. Any time, Alan - I did look at your other vase and commented there.
  16. 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...
  17. 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...
  18. So it is a little different than Diaspora Neu - really cool, interesting piece! Congrats to Andy!
  19. 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...
  20. It's a Hans Bolek design - see my article here:
  21. It is, Michelle.
  22. Olebodie - I saw your vase and read the comments and I respect Kai's opinion about its attribution. I think he's probably right.
  23. That one has it all -congratulations on a wonderful find!

  25. The Poschinger is a shape that is documented on several confirmed Poschinger decors, including enameled, overlay, and wheel engraved.
  26. In the first photo, the one on the left is Poschinger, Buchenau.
  27. 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...
  28. 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...
  29. Spectacular piece, Volkmar. Congratulations on finding such a rarity.
  30. 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...
  31. 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 ...
  32. Steve, there is much more "Grün" in gelbgrün. "Gelb Texas" comes from the production notes.
  33. I did, Sean!
  34. 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.
  35. Great, Al - would love to see it
  36. Outstanding! Thanks for sharing it!
  37. Outstanding! Thanks for sharing it!
  38. Jericho, better late than never, but I can tell you for sure that all three of these are Loetz.
  39. 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...
  40. 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.
  41. If anyone is still following this - how tall is this vase?
  42. Very fine example!
  43. 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.
  44. Thanks, T. :)
  45. There are a few pieces out there I suspect are Schliersee, but no drawing, so I am left to wonder. :)
  46. Deb, taking ownership of an object like this give me a sense of obligation to find out all I can about it. :)
  47. Actually, I do plan on having a conservator look at it. I'll let you know how it goes.
  48. Thanks, Alan - but this one will be hanging in my glass room :)
  49. 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 ...
  50. Substantial, beautiful example, Gary - congratulations!
