I collect Loetz, Tiffany, Steuben, Quezal, Durand and all the other likely suspects. Also Rookwood, Grueby, Teco, Van Briggle, Newcomb College, George Ohr, SEG, UND and any great vintage art pottery I can put my hands on. I look for the rare and unique, and I like a challange when it comes to identification and attribution. I'm a big fan of Dr. Alfredo! (Read more)

  1. Another amazing find. Wow!
  2. Thanks Kyle, I think they go nicely together too.
  3. I wonder what makes it glow red under UV? I will have to do some research on that! Maybe it's due to the cased glass? Very interesting!
  4. This one is amazing, and I love the tulip form "ein tulpe vase" auf Deutsch. The 358 decor is top notch on this one. Absolutely gorgeous! Now the next chase begins!
  5. Thanks SteveS. I'd like to find a small example of the 85/5029 too, but what are the odds of that?
  6. Good thing the restriction doesn't extend to fellow collectors. I will have to get some shots of my "fancies". I do like that cabinet, but without the contents it's not very fancy at all. :)
  7. Thanks glasfreund & austrohungaro.
  8. Thanks Moonstonelover21, LoetzDance and bracken3. I mentioned in my post that I had some help, and it shows how this type of online community can really enhance the entire collecting experience. We su...
  9. Thanks Frank, from cold old Montana. I have a little envy too, since this is the time of year to leave MA and go to nice warm Puerto Rico! Hope you're enjoying it. It's about 25 here, but it was zero ...
  10. Thanks Elaine.x.
  11. Thanks Oz-man. I agree that words don't do it justice - that's why I have very little in the way of description in my posting. What is there to say? Thanks again!
  12. Thanks Gary and Sean.
  13. Thank you very, very much JayHow. It is an amazing feeling, and I really so appreciate your comments.
  14. Thanks for the love GC. The tall one is 12-1/2" tall (31.8 cm).
  15. Thanks Tony and Dave; I had this cataloged as PG 202, but now I see the difference. Cantz only has this with an orange background and metallic yellow decor. I guess I need to get the 1900 Series II.
  16. I agree, Lee. And this one is especially wonderful.
  17. I love the shape on this one, T. This decor is subtle but oh so beautiful, and as you say took quite a bit of skill to get the waves so even and smooth. Excellent!
  18. You did it again Frank! I didn't bid but I wanted to. Good job, and congratulations.
  19. I don't mind helping people, and I think TG is mostly right, but the last comment was rude in itself (not necessary). These vases look like modern studio pieces, but the last one might be from a manuf...
  20. By far the best example of Empire I have ever seen. Wonderful!
  21. Now I see that this decor has thick glass as part of the optic effect, like the one just posted by David. Don't see many of these. Hope you still have it?
  22. The glass seems thick on this one; almost paperweight-like. I agree that it is very reminiscent of Tiffany paperweight vases, especially with the aventurine spots. This is the best example of Medina I...
  23. Beautiful, and the same decor as the "brother" that FWF has. I'd say it has all the attributes and qualities of a Loetz piece, right down to the polished pontil (although that is not conclusive of cou...
  24. You know I wanted this one, Frank. I'm glad you got it. Great piece of Loetz!
  25. What's that crappy Tiffany doing in there? (third photo with flowers) :) And what's my Loetz collection doing in your house? Thanks again for all of your posts, seeing the entire collection is w...
  26. I think it's Kralik too. 10" is not a typical size for Rindskopf, but that's just an observation. Love the colors in this one.
  27. Hey Frank, did you get my email from Tony? Drop me a line.
  28. I was about to buy the Koch the other day, and since you think it's the best I'll go ahead and do that. Thanks Frank!
  29. Thanks Frank; I recently got the Steeg book, and he agrees (1913). I have not seen the Koch; is it a better book? Usually when you put "bible" with a book title that means it's pretty good. Thanks!
  30. N prefix = 1900; same year as Paris World Exhibition; same year Loetz was making very similar items. Did L.C. Tiffany borrow from Loetz or the other way around? Or both at the same time? Exquisite ...
  31. Very nice. My first guess would be Poschinger, but Kralik is also a possibility. Looks like Bohemian glass from about 1900, and yes Art Nouveau or Jugendstil. The optic molding is quite nice.
  32. I agree, it may be a Charles Lotton piece - I have seen him use similar color combinations, and the technique is consistent with his work. Of course one of the Lotton family is also a good chance too....
  33. That's possible; that the small size compressed the application. But I noticed that most Cytisus has groups of two lines that form a thin leaf-like design, and most groups of lines have even numbers o...
  34. Red on yellow is a great combination, and this one is superb!
  35. Very nice! My first impression is not Loetz, but a modern interpretation of Cytisus. I have never seen this color combination, and the decoration looks different than Loetz in color and technique. The...
  36. As far as I know these early pieces are more rare, and more likely to be "unique". This does not always equate to more value however, because people like the signed varieties to reassure them that it'...
  37. The number does start with "zero" and this is consistent with Tiffany's numbering. In the book "Tiffany Favrile Art Glass" by Moise S. Steeg Jr. there is a very good explanation of the numbering (pg. ...
  38. I believe you have something here! I'm pretty certain this is L.C. Tiffany Favrile, and it is a fairly early piece. Early LCT pieces like this were signed only with a 5-digit number and originally had...
  39. Wonderful! I especially love the 4th one. I also love how your style is unique, yet still pays homage to the art form. Brilliant!
  40. Another one right out of the book (Ricke Band I pg. 179). Wonderful!
  41. Outstanding? Where did you find the reference to PG 1/215? I have never seen this genre before, but it does have elements of 2/351 Argus and 3/460. This is an amazing vase.
  42. I had the bronze glatt several years back, and I wish I hadn't sold it. I almost bought the Olympia. I really love this shape.
  43. Nice one Frank, and it's good to know about the smaller ones being more rare (since I have one). Thanks!
  44. I agree that the description is still accurate. I also note that the pulled-wave pattern in 1/92 is the same (or drawn the same) as 829, but in the example and 2/490 the waves go down and up (instead ...
  45. Oh, and crazy too (Tiffany that is).
  46. I'd say chances are 95% that this was from that exhibition. They would have been silly NOT to include such an incredible work of art! WOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  47. LoetzDance; thanks for the posting - I contemplated doing the same thing - posting the line drawings with an example of 829 - but you have done it much better than I could have. I noticed that the lin...
  48. I agree Bohemian; mostly from the colors and shape. I love the yellow and black - almost like a crackle or mimosa. Very nice!
  49. The work I cited is "Lotz Bohmisches Glas 1880-1940, Band 1", by Helmut Ricke and others. This book is very hard to find and very expensive, as is the case for most of the other Loetz references. This...
  50. This is a fantastic lamp! It is phanomen, but it is not genre 829. There is an almost identical lamp shown on pg. 145 of Ricke Lotz Band 1. This design is unidentified, but is very similar to genres 1...
