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, Steve - it is interesting - I'm particularly interested how the color of the underlayer affects the appearance of the outer layer. Yesterdays - I did see that one. I'm not 100% sure, but I ...
  2. I guess it depends, Brian, on whether Alpenrot is defined as a decor, or a color. If Alpenrot is a specific shade of red, then it makes sense that there would be instances of it on different grounds (...
  3. Frank - I saw your awesome bowl and was wondering where you got the Poschinger info
  4. Thanks, guys - Al, I don't remember the Atlas photos- if you do find them, I would love to see them.
  5. I have an aqua marine vase listed on eBay, so I can't list it here, but I will email you a link to it. It doesn't glow, either.
  6. Does it have a slight green tint? It may be Steuben Aqua Marine
  7. Absolutely wonderful!
  8. Great find; nice write-up - thanks for sharing it!
  9. Of course if I knew then what I know now, I would have kept the bowl - but there are more finds out there, and I know the bowl is in great company.
  10. The thought had occurred to me, Steve - also the similarity of the decor to a certain yellow shaded bowl you and I both know. :)
  11. It sure has the markers - white dots - impeccably painted birds...
  12. You might be onto something there, Marty - Harrach was always a contender for me. I'm just not sure enough to make the call. :)
  13. Thanks, guys
  14. That mark was used by Carl Hosch, so the piece may well have been executed by Kralik.
  15. twentiethc could be right - I was thinking either Israeli, or Grecian - Lipasmata Glass Works. They also made thin-walled glass with a rustic look.
  16. Again, Mac - really love it- and so great to have the catalogue page! Nice pick!
  17. I was reading Cantz last night, and they noted that in the early days, while Tiffany was trying to reproduce almost exactly the old Persian rosewater sprinklers (narrower necks, more delicate), Loetz ...
  18. No problem - if you drill down into the FAQ page, there is an email address where you can contact them: wrg
  19. Filip Ravert, Romanian:
  20. Nice one - glad you got it.
  21. Thanks, Kevin - I loved the handles - had to have it. :)
  22. :) I was typing, Mike was posting LOL
  23. Jeff, this is the work of Karl Pohl, who operated a painting and engraving workshop in Novy Bor in the early 1900s (and personally decorated much of the glassware produced there). The Pohl family were...
  24. According to the Series II book, these came in sizes all the way up to 18.5" - those must be something to see! I normally don't care for JIPs all that much, but I love this one. Congratulations, Al!
  25. That is called fusing and slumping - accomplished in the intense heat of a kiln in pretty much the manner you described.
  26. Mac, I will try - I looked at it under a loupe, and it looks to me like it's been rolled in glass frit, then re-heated until the frit began to melt, creating a stippled texture. It isn't coralene - it...
  27. Glad we could help :)
  28. Thanks, Deb, and I agree - if the seller doesn't ask me to send it back, I'll put it in the "infirmary" - a cabinet section for damaged pieces. :)
  29. I checked a couple of times, Gary, but it's entirely possible I missed it.
  30. Outstanding - congratulations - very important piece, indeed.
  31. Thank you all - Brian, I know how hard Cephalonia is to come by, and I figured if this turned out to be my only example, it would be a nice one to have. :)
  32. Those are a lucky find at any price. Congratulations to you and Dave!
  33. I posted an interesting one a couple of years ago- an Ausführung C variant, according to the catalogue page re-printed in the back of Cantz:
  34. Thanks, Tony - now if I can just find one to call my own :)
  35. I've been looking for it, Al - you would think it would be in there somewhere!
  36. ;) If it will make you feel any better, I was prepared to go much higher :)
  37. Thanks, Bob - I was pretty sure it was a "Franken-lamp"... my interest in it is as art glass first, lamp second. As long as the final treatment looks good and functions safely, showing off the glass, ...
  38. Kai, I would agree with you, and I have posted some Harrach pieces here with the same decoration as in the Harrach book, but then there is Plate 3 in Cantz, as well as the marmoriertes pieces in the f...
  39. Those cartouche indents are typical of Kralik
  40. Love the new photos... nice piece
  41. I believe those are in the Kralik case in Passau. I think there's a photo somewhere.... I'll see if I can find it
  42. Frank, they all start out crystal clear, and depending on the combination of stains/firing/vapor reduction and the chemicals used, they came up with red, blue, purple, even green (and shades in betwee...
  43. Lee... the thought just occurred to me... this could be a Glasfabrik Schliersee piece (vs. PK) - check out the oil spots (particularly the color) in your vase and compare to the pieces in my previous ...
  44. So excellent :)
  45. So noted - thanks!
  46. Congratulations on the big 5-0-0, Al- it seems like just yesterday you were introducing us to the Butler Brothers catalogues... looking forward to the next 500. :) Warren
  47. Beautiful early historic revival piece - nice to see another Harrach in your collection :)
  48. Brian, on my Harrach page, I have a shaded vase in the same decoration (R/500) that I have always assumed was Harrach, as it is also marked 602/17 (a Harrach-looking shape number). Can you take a look...
  49. Me too, Gary - bucket list... :)
  50. Perhaps. The current curator sees everything with Silesian colored glasses... and no museum is perfect - PMC included. The reason I suggested Jitka is because I believe she met one of the recent tour ...
