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. Incredible addition to an already great collection Warren. Congrats!
  2. I also had a maron Medici in this form. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/102778-loetz-medici-group
  3. https://sites.google.com/site/loetzglass/ The biscuit barrel is on the Kralik page
  4. Not a problem, Ian. I have all my photos on my website to help people ID their glass.
  5. I recall that you and I bought the twisted ones as a pair many years ago.
  6. The photo of the "stabchensplitter" (bacillus) decor is mine, and I still have the piece. Definitely Kralik.
  7. Loetz Austria
  8. The thickness of the glass at the rim looks to be heavier than normally seen on Loetz or MK pieces too. My own one piece looks to be about half the thickness as this, and as you say, has a pontil and ...
  9. Thank you my friend, the same to you!
  10. Thanks Antiquerose, I agree. And the beauty really comes out in the photos. The lights in the cabinet don't do these justice, but the photo really makes them pop. By the way, this is the first time I ...
  11. Thanks Tony. I have always loved putting things together this way.
  12. You may have noticed that I had both of these PNs in gold Papillon, Alfredo.
  13. Happy to help, Alan. Authentic signatures are nice, but never buy a signature. First authenticate the maker, and if you like it for what it is, then buy it. I have a few authentic Loetz pieces with fa...

  15. Here a link for you. https://sites.google.com/site/loetzglass/marks
  16. Alan, Frank is correct. This is not Loetz, so the mark must be fake. Having said that, look at the loetz.com website under "identifying" and look at the signatures on there, then compare to yours. Or ...
  17. I have one of these. After some discussion I am now calling it Josephinenhütte. The glass is thicker than I would expect from Loetz, but I like the handles.
  18. Me too, Alfredo.
  19. Fantastic Gary, glad to see you got this one.
  20. The ball footed bowl is an exceptional example.
  21. It always upsets me when something which has survived for 115 years is treated so carelessly that it gets damaged or destroyed, and the seller often says "it's OK, it's insured", as if that makes ever...
  22. I agree Sean, very nice decor.
  23. It was actually Andy's snag, Gary. I'm just a way station for this beauty.
  24. Zelda's one of my faves too, lol. No Loetz collection would be complete without a nice ast ;)
  25. I think the DEK number is actually I/107.
  26. Alfredo, I have just one Creta Rusticana with a snake, a large bowl/vase. It is amazing that any of these survived intact, as a simple bump would ruin it. I got mine in New Bedford, MA at the antique ...
  27. Wow, that's a monster Frank. Nice going.
  28. Gary, I'll message you.
  29. Thanks for the loves and comments everyone. I have wanted to own one example of each (affordable) decor I could find, and would often replace a piece with a better form when one came along, but this o...
  30. Agreed Warren. In person the optic feature isn't very evident, although in the photos it is.
  31. This finish looks and feels like silk, and is just as slippery. Hold on to it with 2 hands!
  32. From 1899, Series I Production Number 8115. I have this form in both Candia Papillon like yours and Creta Papillon. Very nice!
  33. Deb and I had this very one in our hands a couple of weeks ago. Glad you got it, Warren.
  34. How tall is it, Frank? Looks similar to my Aus. 143, although mine is ribbed.
  35. It depends what language you are using. Medina Optic is the English for Medina Optisch, which is the German.
  36. If you could have only one example of decorated matt iris, this is the one to own. Nice piece Frank.
  37. The first piece is probably 1920-1930. The PG 6893 in the second photo is most likely 1898-1900. The third one is around 1910-1920. I don't have the production numbers offhand, so I can't give exact y...
  38. My fish are also under the ice for the winter, though I have a heater to keep it open for oxygen exchange, much-needed in these crazy low temperatures. Supposed to go down to -10 F tonight. Ugh. I'll ...
  39. Hi Sean, good morning to you also. Yes, it is a nice one. I was fortunate enough to have it in my possession for a few days before having to send it off to Croatia.
  40. Very nice, definitely Loetz I would say.
  41. Happy New Year everyone!
  42. Nice comparison Marty. This is the same effect I get when I mix up all the different colors of Tango glass on one shelf. Thanks for the comments and loves everyone.
  43. This is the only one of these I have ever seen. As uncommon as the Loetz ones are, I have seen more of theirs.
  44. Thanks for the comments. Austro, that is an excellent example of a mount, for sure.
  45. Now that's about as Art Nouveau as they come. Nice.
  46. I would suggest that the mount has been bent over the years, perhaps due to removing the glass to clean it or the metal. Compare the mount and glass to these: http://loetz.com/decors-a-z/image?view=...
  47. I am in agreement with you. But the blue with white decoration is an uncommon combination and still worth having.
  48. I don't think it's Bohemian. It looks more like studio work to me. Rough ground pontil, incompletely ground out. Bohemian makers would not have left it like that, and Loetz would be highly polished.
  49. Not Loetz.
  50. I actually saw a green one recently. A pale green, but the color gave the spots a light blue color as with silberiris.
