I'm Dave, and I have been collecting glass since around 2000. I started out with little colorful vases and pitchers, then decided I liked iridescent glass.

Naturally I found some nice iridescent Bohemian glass, and the rest is history. A link to my website: http://sites.google.com/site/loetzglass/Home My email: Dclfd911@gmail.com (Read more)

  1. I actually saw a green one recently. A pale green, but the color gave the spots a light blue color as with silberiris.
  2. I have this in lime green with blue rim, oval mark.
  3. Thanks everyone. Not sure about that one, I have seen these in Candia and green, but no other colors. as far as I know none of the shapes are in the books, but I hope to see a Series III book eventual...
  4. I do too, Tony. A nice way to show off the forms without losing it in a busy decor. I have just 2 bronze glatts left now although I have had a lot of them over the years.
  5. I was supposed to go to that auction, but ended up not going, and I would have bid on it. I guess you were meant to have it, Rick. Congrats. It's the identical shape as my PG 377, which I bought 2 yea...
  6. https://sites.google.com/site/loetzglass/loetz-page-3 It's about halfway down the right column.
  7. Medici decor, I have an identical one.
  8. One of my favorite shapes. I have a Rusticana to match as well.
  9. This looks very much like mine Frank. The metallic yellow ones are more iridescent than the lemon yellows, as the name would suggest.
  10. Thanks everyone. Frank, there are 2 different yellows used. I believe this is metallic yellow (metallgelb). The other is lemon yellow (citrongelb).
  11. Hi Marty, it looks like a smooth-ground but not polished pontil. If that is the case, it's not Loetz. I have at least one piece of Tango with a pontil like that, but it has no markings at all. Sorry I...
  12. The appraiser is using old information, and they need to buy some new books. These overshot frit pitchers' decor is documented in more recent books, using catalog pages from the Czech companies which ...
  13. Like my Rusticana, 3rd one down in the left column. https://sites.google.com/site/loetzglass/loetz-page-4
  14. Thanks Leah, things worked out with these ones.
  15. Here is a link to my post. I just added a photo showing my two vases together. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/85786-loetz-federzeichnung-decor-vase-octopus
  16. Thank YOU, Gary. It will look nice beside my brown one. Very unusual color indeed.
  17. Alfredo has one similar, same colors. I gave it to him years ago. He might know more about who might have made it.
  18. Not Loetz, more likely Kralik.
  19. You know I will keep in touch too, Anne. I'm sorry to see your posts (and loves) gone from CW, but I understand. Sending emails is a bit more personal and meaningful than posts on a public site :)
  20. One of my favorite decors
  21. These are gorgeous!
  22. Nice one Tony, glad you got it, and a great shape too.
  23. Hi Anne, yes, that's me. You're too kind, but thank you. I had plenty of help early on in my collecting, and I like to pay it forward when I am able. My mind is not as sharp as it once was, but I have...
  24. I love these. Hope that one day I can find one within reach. Thanks for sharing.
  25. I would have to say this one, Anne. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/85997-my-first-piece-of-loetz-who-would-have The first piece of Loetz anyway, and my interest in glass just took off afte...
  26. To answer your question about the photos, I took them all at a slight angle, both so the light didn't reflect straight back off the glass and mirrored back, and so the photographer wasn't in the shot....
  27. Nice example Gary. I remember when we had a discussion about the "hybrid" shape and decor.
  28. Thanks for sharing this Alfredo.
  29. Thanks Karen, I keep staring at it too. I'm glad it is not any larger than it is, it's about as large as any vase I want to keep in my cabinets, and I wouldn't want to leave it out in the open.
  30. Thanks everyone. It only took me 14 years to find one.
  31. They are talking about a little bit of snow here tomorrow, so it's not quite over yet. But as long as there are double-digits on the thermometer I am not going to complain (much).
  32. Thanks, I've been in a glass drought lately.
  33. I like Kralik for this also.
  34. Indeed Warren, like the silver threads on my Loetz Peacock vase. I found that using a dark (black in my case) background showed the lighter reflective material better.
  35. Nice Tony, good size and shape, great example of the decor.
  36. 1900 Series II PN 381
  37. I had my turn and it lasted about 2 years. Things are back to normal now. Maybe one new piece every 3 months. But the things I'm looking for are a lot harder to find.
  38. Alfredo, as they are marked that way you can narrow your search down a bit and start at 1918 and later. Love the set and glad you got them!
  39. My own Oceanic is identical size and shape. Nice example.
  40. As the text underneath the drawing shows, this piece was made under two different Production Numbers...Loetz' own II-6893 and Commissions by M. Emanuel & Co., 346/1830.
  41. I agree that this is most likely a later Loetz production. For what it's worth, there are quite a few later decors which we have not seen very often, and even plenty of earlier decors. I own at least ...
  42. I would lean towards Creta, it doesn't look light enough for Olympia. Your earlier photos made it look a bit lighter than these ones.
  43. One of my favorite decors.
  44. Art Nouveau period, most likely 1900-02 for this one.
  45. I would use one of these regularly in my house. They are not as delicate as earlier Loetz products, and were really made to be used. I bet lemonade would taste really good out of it. Or perhaps mulled...
  46. I haven't seen another one in person to compare to it, so I couldn't say. I used very bright lights and the subject was in better focus for this shot. Some of the ones I take are not quite as sharp.
  47. The decors list in the Series II book states 36 were made in Medina Optisch for this PN.
  48. I was with you when you bought one of these, the shell I think. I bought a couple vases from the same dealer...a tall Kralik "red swirl" and a nice Loetz Max Emanuel ball-shaped Creta glatt.
  49. Nice cobalt pampas!
  50. http://loetz.com/decors-a-z/phaenomen-genres/phaenomen-genres-enter-here/pg-2-450 Looks a lot like this one.
