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.

  1. Hi Mac, I neglected to add my usual disclaimer that this post was written by my colleague Andy Jelcic of Croatia. Unfortunately it is not in my possession.
  2. Wrong category.
  3. Yes, it's Rindskopf. I would suggest moving this post to the Bohemian category as it is not Loetz.
  4. I thought about pulling the trigger on this one, but I have more Papillons than I need already.
  5. I am in agreement with Andy's statement. It may well be Loetz, although a decor different than 2/467, which has a silberiris-type gold in the wavy lines. Yours are more like pulled-feathers. I have mo...
  6. Hi Alan, Andy Jelcic asked me if I could share his comment on your post: Dear Alan, sometimes things in life run that way. I had the vase on my list, believing it was Loetz (I still think so), a...
  7. I wish it was mine Tony. This beauty belongs to Andy Jelcic in Croatia. A lot of rare and unusual things appear in Europe if you know where to look. Thanks Jericho, I completely agree.
  8. Right Frank, I was just referring to the shape.
  9. I thought it looked familiar... http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/84262-loetz-ausfhrung-157-vase
  10. Steve, could you send me an email at the gmail address in my profile, I may have some information for you.
  11. I would not complain about your photo, it's perfect, these look great when backlit.
  12. Steve, here is Andy's comment : "This is exactly what I think CW is for - to share the insights and expand the knowledge, thank you. Your examples in different colors on clear ground - Kristall in ...
  13. I like the original diasporas in all colors, but this variant of that basic decor is outstanding in my opinion.
  14. Most likely a hydrant wrench. The hook on the side would be used to tighten the hose coupling.
  15. Nice Frank, I used to have one in this decor.
  16. I have 2 Ovations, a Celebrity and a Legend, and will probably buy a 12-string Elite or Adamas this month. Love them.
  17. Oh, and Anne, I had that other profile pic on here for a long time, but I think this is my new favorite.
  18. Thanks Anne, you do understand.
  19. Thanks Warren, you know it. Thank you Gary, Sean, Deb. It feels good to post something new from my own collection, it has been a while.
  20. Exactly!
  21. Why does Kim Kardashian come to mind when I see this.
  22. I totally agree, Tony. Very unusual decor and great quality, it would be hard to display it without some kind of base.
  23. I have an identical one that I use regularly. It's a perfect size and shape for flowers.
  24. It's about 12" including the mount. I'll post about the UV reactiveness later after Andy has a chance to check it.
  25. Oh yes, that would be this one: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/144846-schliersee-pewter-mounted-aspasia-deco
  26. The shape, although similar, is not the same as the Loetz one (the rim is flat and wide, and angular, rather than the gentle curve on yours). Also, the spots don't look like Loetz Papillon. Definitely...
  27. I love diaspora, and this particular version is my favorite.
  28. It really came out perfect. Usually these things don't fit exactly and look out of place, but this one looks like it was always there.
  29. Although I haven't changed the CW post or the photo title on my website, I am quite certain that my vase is heliotrop mit dunkelblau und silber. Unlike typical blue silberiris finish which looks spray...
  30. Very nice, John.
  31. Whatever it is, it is not Loetz. You should move this to American art glass category.
  32. Incredible addition to an already great collection Warren. Congrats!
  33. https://sites.google.com/site/loetzglass/ The biscuit barrel is on the Kralik page
  34. Not a problem, Ian. I have all my photos on my website to help people ID their glass.
  35. The photo of the "stabchensplitter" (bacillus) decor is mine, and I still have the piece. Definitely Kralik.
  36. Loetz Austria
  37. 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 ...
  38. Thank you my friend, the same to you!
  39. 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 ...
  40. Thanks Tony. I have always loved putting things together this way.
  41. 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...
  42. http://loetz-bohemianglass.com/identifying.htm
  43. Here a link for you. https://sites.google.com/site/loetzglass/marks
  44. 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 ...
  45. 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.
  46. Me too, Alfredo.
  47. Fantastic Gary, glad to see you got this one.
  48. The ball footed bowl is an exceptional example.
  49. 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...
  50. I agree Sean, very nice decor.
  51. See more
