  1. I have owned a dozen documented Loetz vases with fake Tiffany signatures added. So as Warren stated, they assume they know more than they really do...maybe a "dealer" told them this and they are itchi...
  2. Thats how it was explained to me at the MAK in Vienna by the curator. Glad to be able to help you for a change.
  3. Correct me if I am wrong, but Alfredo clearly mentions he suspects the signature to be fake. Not the vase itself which is 100% genuine Loetz. Mine is here, posted with the pr# http://www.collectors...
  4. Really nice group. Enjoy.
  5. Your in for a treat Frank. i handled this vase and its even nicer in person.
  6. This is a elegantly beautiful line of glass.
  7. Thank you Sean.
  8. Love the color.
  9. No matter who designed the piece, its simply gorgeous and could visit my collection anytime its in the neighborhood.
  10. Some reference material suggests that all of Kirschner's designs were signed. If thats the case, and I don't know that to be the gospel, then I think her design influenced regular Loetz production r...
  11. A very nice example.
  12. wow!...too cool.
  13. very cool
  14. Great photo of a gorgeous example of this Genre.
  15. Love the pair photo in particular.
  16. Congratulations Dave..This is one of my favorite color combinations in Cytisus.
  17. A dear friend had an incredible antique store in Chicago. On a few occasions he would take off for Palm Springs and I would open the store two days a week for him. He had several, 7-10 of these pieces...
  18. Wonderful pieces Warren.
  19. Its what I call "awesome ugly"...quirky and unique
  20. I just love these. Great find with the handles.
  21. very cool...I like it better than your other one
  22. Fine detective work Warren. Congratulations.
  23. Handles and feet always add interest and value. I love the Astglas line. Very underappreciated. Very nice examples Warren.
  24. Search Tiffany Favrile threaded tumbler. 100% Tiffany
  25. I believe its Tiffany.
  26. Exceptional piece.
  27. Amazing piece. I have never seen another like it. Congrats Warren.
  28. What a unique color combination and a Loetz piece as well! Congrats Warren.
  29. Thanks Michelleboo7. My vocabulary was limited to a very few words that summer. Not nice words.
  30. Thank you Lee. Its certainly one of the most complicated I can imagine.
  31. Thanks Dave. Obsessive focus can work sometimes. This time it was luck and timing.
  32. HOLY OM^&T(&*GUYDRRT^&^$O)BKJHK^$F!!! Incredible form.
  33. I always loved this shape. Nice score. I think your on to something here...
  34. The back decor looks similar to chargers Loetz did for Paris 1900. Very nice.
  35. Yes GlueChip I do manage that page and a few other glass collector pages as well.
  36. Pretty...but no clue. Sorry
  37. Just beautiful.
  38. one of my Grail pieces...I owned a very small one years ago and sold it thinking it was Murano. I have never been able to find another undamaged one since. Congrats Dave.
  39. Hi Frank. It was hideous. Not only did I not like it, I asked the seller to keep it in fear it would damage the shade in transit.
  40. Hi Frank. My assertion is that the prunts of the Leonidas line are made up of the same type of glass as this decor. While the ridges of the PG 1/844 appears to have a similar method in which the glas...
  41. Nice example.
  42. Wow..I have seen this decor over the years and never knew the maker...its so great to have a reliable attribution. Great find Warren.
  43. Super cool find!
  44. Just something so raw and beautiful about the Trevaise and early Tiffany. None of the strict uniformity compared to Quezal. Love them.
  45. Stunning!
  46. I have never seen anything like this. Its beautiful.
  47. Welzebub- The form was made for them in several decors.
  48. Yes copper and tin..a lot of people have reactions to the mix.
  49. My personal opinion is that its not Loetz. The decor and the shape don't look like anything I have ever seen by Loetz. Its a very interesting piece but the flourish at the base certainly eliminates it...
  50. SteveS...yes. Same form.
  51. See more
