  1. Lovely. I really like the organic type lip.
  2. Thanks, Fledermaus. The Robert family were an interesting group of three generations of Swiss artists, most of whom had notable interests in naturalist subjects. I had no clue about them until I saw...
  3. Hi, Al. I'm not certain about the comment about silver being used to hide imperfections, as you can see from pictures #3 and #4 above the galvanic silver application is going to conform to any surfac...
  4. Michelleb007, the etching is done by hand after the silver is deposited, which can be another point of quality or value. In addition to etching, crafts people (typically women) would be tasked with "...
  5. Exactly, magdelenagirl. There are Loetz DEK decors, but all of those were in-house enamel on glass works. The galvanic silver overlay process was, from my research, developed first in Britain, but w...
  6. Very interesting expressionist (potentially symbolist) piece! What is that to the right side of the figure's head? A snake? I notice the hand is placed interestingly, as well…almost as if the figur...
  7. Thanks for the loves folks.
  8. Could it be Tiffany?
  9. Wonderful! Nice mix of decor and mount.
  10. Wonderful! I'm going to share this with a FB art nouveau ceramics group. Maybe someone there may be able to provide more info.
  11. Congrats on buying a nice Loetz vase.
  12. …conversely, I need a shade like this for my Gurschner lamp!
  13. I was wondering where this one went. Great purchase. Looks far better in your pictures!
  14. I haven't heard of her until now, but from the piece above it is clear that she was influenced by the early 20s Wiener Werkstatte and Austrian deco ceramicists.
  15. Wonderful. As you were saying earlier and it applies here…oh, to think what it was like to live in a time when you would buy your cocktail liquor in a perfectly fired and complex glazed gres mini-cer...
  16. Phenomenal! We need to start talking trades. What else do you have hiding offline?
  17. It is a mouse or a rat feasting on lotus berries. It's the right size to possibly be a netsuke. Might explain the breakage on the back, as well as discoloration at the bottom.
  18. Wholeheartedly agree, Jensen! My eye and curiosity are always drawn to objects with visual complexity and/or symbolic or narrative design elements.
  19. LOL, Sean68. I'm afraid I'm a bit of hog. On a more serious note, I would warn folks about an increasing number of modern fakes or period type items being sold as Daguet. Unless you know what you...
  20. Thanks folks. If it hasn't been noticed, I have a bit of a Daguet obsession.
  21. Dresser pieces are wonderful! And, I would argue, vastly under-appreciated. Great find!
  22. Wonderful! German ceramics from this period are so under-appreciated…and undeservedly so!
  23. Very cool. I could easily see that on the set of A Clockwork Orange.
  24. BTW - Gaillard's jewelry is most sublime. See here: http://blissst.blogspot.com/2009/06/art-nouveau-insects-by-lucien-gaillard.html
  25. Thanks folks. I've been stalking Gaillard for years and just got lucky (and knew what the LG meant!).
  26. Thanks for the loves folks. I'm completely open to conjecture or any ideas on this one.
  27. You flatter me...dangerous to feed my ego. ;) Seriously, though, I'm going to scout out what I can find on these pieces. It is helpful that you have multiple examples. The "R" likely references th...
  28. Thanks guys. I love this piece largely because I know that it was actually handled by the artist. Yes, there are much better designed and glazed pieces, but those tend to be during his period of lar...
  29. My gut still says German for these pieces.
  30. Ah ha! I was wondering who my competition was for this piece! Great taste! I have no clue who produced it, though I strongly suspect it is German…particularly given its origins in the sale/auction....
  31. What an unusual Loetz form! Love it.
  32. Woah! The dripping effect on the tall vase is wonderful.
  33. Wonderful! Would love to see it lit up.
  34. I so want the brain models!
  35. Wow! I love them all. The first I suspect is one of the rarer pieces because of the retained top, while the second and third have glaze effects to die for. The fourth is just simple, yet elegantly ...
  36. WoW! Great pieces, VioletOrange! I like the third piece the best. Unusual form and glaze combination there. That's not to say the other two are any lesser, though!
  37. Hi, VioletOrange. The stamped Delaherche pieces are certainly pre-1904. I'm not certain of the chronology of the various stamps, though. Please post your Delaherche vases, if you haven't already.
  38. Thanks guys. This one was a bit of a departure for me given the spare Japoniste style, but how could one pass up a hand-thrown pot by the godfather of modern studio art pottery?!
  39. Mont Joye type glasswork. Not saying that's who produced it, though…only that it has many features of Mont Joye production.
  40. Wow! I remember this being posted about 2 years ago. I guess you just wore him down. Kudos!
  41. Wow. The work on the bottom is amazingly complex.
  42. Yet again expanding my world!
  43. Love, love, love the enameled cabochon Loetz pieces. Makes one wonder who in the production line was responsible for the applied enamel handwork.
  44. Killer "alien lifeform." I agree about the technical prowess necessary to pull it off. What a stunner.
  45. Your MA&S information just solved a mystery for me! I'm loving the education and pieces! Cheers!
  46. I really love the one to the far left. Classic Art Nouveau advertisement style and composition.
  47. Oz, from your mouth to god's ears!
  48. Hi, Alfredo. I thought about Bacillus, but the pieces I've seen have had a textured surface where there is a different smooth surface on the "bacilli" relative to the iridescent background. But, you...
  49. Very cool. I love faux mounted ceramics. Sort of the trompe l'oeil of the ceramics world.
  50. Hi, ks85. There are two books I would highly recommend. One is entitled, "Clement Massier: Master of Iridescence" and the other is "Les Massier: Cote Cour, Cote Jardin." Both can be found on Amazon...
