  1. Great write-up!
  2. In the late 19th and early 20th century MANY people would want that in their living room, particularly someone during that period who was socially and intellectually astute.
  3. I believe that Paris1925 is correct. This was most likely some sort of advertisement or product presentation piece. I wouldn't be terribly surprised to learn that the motif with the torch bearing an...
  4. Wonderful! Thank you, Paris1925. It is also helpful to learn of the example's signature with a 1898 date. This indicates that this form, which has a creature identical to one in the famed 1893 Geor...
  5. Thanks for checking, Volkmar, and for the added information! Heckert is finally getting some well deserved attention.
  6. Great detective work, Volkmar! I'm curious. Did you run across the shape drawing for this ( http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/96321-unusual-heckert-silberband-bronze-mounte ) in the Heckert de...
  7. Wonderful! I really like the peacock-like effect of the design and glaze colors.
  8. I'd have to agree, jensen. I go for glaze effects too, but with Dalpayrat (as with Lachenal) for me it is the surface characteristics that I find irresistible. Dalpayrat's matte type surfaces beg t...
  9. I second Kairomalte's attribution idea. Heckert came immediately to mind for me too. Beautiful piece, BTW.
  10. The vase went elsewhere. I was only lucky with the goblet.
  11. Thanks, Fledermaus. To your credit, it was your work that came to mind when I first saw this piece.
  12. Any markings on the fixture? Sometimes there will be something at the bottom or outside the ceramic socket.
  13. Wonderful, Fledermaus! I think the shade may be Pallme-König production (Glasfabrik Elizabeth). Not certain about the base, but certainly German/Bohemian in origin. What was the wiring like when bo...
  14. Thanks all. I do feel lucky!
  15. Thanks Sean68. Still pinching myself.
  16. Thanks Vetraio50. I thought it was appropriate for the upcoming Halloween holiday. Frankly, I'm amazed that I landed it.
  17. Haven't decided yet, Fledermaus...just know that I'm running out of display space and getting yet another display is not an option. ;|
  18. Hi, Paris1925. I believe the Tiffany signature is fake, but I could be wrong. I'm not aware of any relationships between Caranza and Tiffany, and the "Favrille" in the signature would not apply here.
  19. Thanks, Vetraio50. I have one more to post, then it's time to "thin the herd" for the season.
  20. It could also be that Hedrich was "snubbed" by the paternalistic art journals of the time. Schmoll and Dietz were much bigger names at the time (and male).
  21. Hi, Paris1925. 14 x 10.2 cm
  22. My German is not at all where it was in college, but doesn't that period reference indicate "design patterns" by Schmoll? If the design is Schmoll's, couldn't it also hold that Hedrich executed the e...
  23. Just looked his pieces up on Artnet. If you purchased this at sale in 2010, you got a steal! Nicely done.
  24. Really like the Weiner Werkstatte/Vienna design of the facial features on this piece!
  25. Thanks for the lovely comments.
  26. The Quittenbaum version is the other similar example without the flames that I referenced above. Great memory, Sean68!
  27. Thanks, Sean68. I certainly wish I knew who designed it. The flames make it, IMHO.
  28. Very etherial and moody. I love it! It does have that Nibelungen feel doesn't it?
  29. Vintagefran - one appeared here: http://cgi.ebay.fr/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=251659673024
  30. Very nice, Paris1925. I really like the contrasting colors underneath the web design. Does the vase have the Cytere marks underneath and additional signature by Catteau? Just curious.
  31. Thanks for the helpful reference sources, Paris1925!
  32. Thanks, Paris1925. The piece is still in questionable attribution status. I really wished I could find a listing or similar signed piece.
  33. Thanks, Vetraio50.
  34. Very nice. I particularly like the Secessionist design.
  35. Thanks, VioletOrange. I've been looking out for your pieces, too. Still have that Doat?
  36. Thanks folks. I was lucky to find it. I appreciate the glaze insight, Fledermaus!
  37. Thanks, Fledermaus & Paris1925!
  38. That Neal Adams Batman cover is classic and very well done.
  39. Thanks, Sean68!
  40. Thanks, Moonstonelover21! My first foray into French art glass. I have been scared off for years now from French art glass due to the high numbers of sophisticated fakes, but after about ~3 years of...
  41. Very pretty and well designed.
  42. Could be German or Austrian. Similar in style to a piece I own that was made by a German firm. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/68416-1910-vienna-moderne-style-silver-candles
  43. The non-uniformity of the color and bottom pontil/color makes me think something other than Loetz. If not Loetz, then I think it adds weight to your Dresser design hypothesis. Very nice piece!
  44. Very beautiful purple color and design.
  45. Thanks all. Jensen - I'll keep an eye out for Keerl pieces for you.
  46. Oh, the horror stories!
  47. Thanks all. I was surprised to see the pewter intact on this one. I once made the mistake of trying to clean the surface of one of these overlay vases with some hot water and the water melted the wa...
  48. It is either German or Belgian. I agree that it is odd that the chip was right over the mark. Strange…but a really nice piece. How big is it?
  49. Thanks, Fledermaus.
  50. Thanks, Riply206. It was your lead that led to the solution, so you really deserve some of the credit! Thanks again for the help! Cheers.
  51. See more
