  1. Same shape
  2. i have its sister in aqua... lool- these are great!!
  3. Thanx, I'll do another one, I really like the simplicity of these tango pieces in very predictable shapes and no grinding or pontils
  4. I'll send you a pic of the foot, even though the enamel is put on other pieces that are documented it doesn't mean that decorating companies didn't use different blanks from different producers
  5. Notice these three pieces, the enameling is the same
  6. No, it has a concave foot about 2" wide with a pontil reaching almost to the black ribbon, some Powolny and Bolek pieces have the threading on rim and foot. The foot is closed by the way not hollow
  7. It changes color depending on the timing (how long it took in the making)
  8. Oh, Im just reminded by the flaw comment. I meant to document how many bambus color combinations there are (red is made several different ways for example). So in your example Phil you can safely say ...
  9. this is a very soft iridescence, almost satin- like Welz does on some pieces. Beautiful piece of loetz I just wanted to differentiate the mat-sheen effect not to me confused with flash tango pieces th...
  10. yes yes yes, cool andy looks like tango is getting to you my friend! I agree with the tip, sometimes there is a scraping line just below the handle where no glass ever was
  11. AAAAAGH love the bottom
  12. great shape new decor to me!! I love your description too... We often dont go into weight, thickness of glass etc... very helpfull
  13. if you look at the canes closely in both my vanity set pic and your line drawing you will see: green with red core cane yellow with green core red with burgundy core pink with red core etc.....
  14. I don't use the SKLO exhibit as gospel and Yitka (curator) can make mistakes. the tango bowl could be Kralik or Loetz but the caning displayed on the bowl looks kralik to me with many examples to show...
  15. hahahaha, Lisa: 0 I'm comfortable with Ruckl too. This is the same shape at the controlled bubble with adventurine pull-up design....that design has been connected to line drawings of a lampshade s...
  17. ...see 1st image, email me if you want other image of this piece
  18. I think Rindskopf both ways- this is not the usual kralik millifiore canes (in fact never seen in other kralik shapes) look at this candy dish... the canes are uncased; kralik always cased their canes.
  19. Ill take those two smaller tango pieces off your hands ...
  20. Ruckl for me based on the frosted finish and the internal tango base with spatter (confetti) showing through
  21. Agustine, please email me I have s nice piece to show you -
  22. I love these and appreciate that they are sometimes sold cheaply...SSShhhhhh
  23. I think its Kralik or Welz too. If you ever visit Czechoslovalia you will see these in small town pubs. I saw a bunch when I went a few years ago...
  24. Very nice and I have never seen the triple vases on tripod! cool
  25. I think its Anton Ruckl, by shape, the color and the frost finish
  26. in my opinion there could be many companies that made these... but they are amazing! they need to grow in numbers because this design looks better in numbers (like 150)
  27. couldn't agree more. Glue chip had the same problems with attribution until a few shapes confirmed this decor as Kralik. this piece is an incredible FIND!! I would suggest looking at two shapes in tan...
  28. Pallme Konig- Great piece. is the mwtal to 14" or is the vase alone 14"?
  29. The colored frit seems to have been fired several times to produce a texture as well as specled color. I just call these "uncased" confetti (spatter). This shape is great if you can find the other siz...
  30. are there three dents (indentations) on the body of the vase? It might be FUNK- another glass company from Germany, they made a rim like that and many glass decors that look like Welz/Kralik. email me...
  31. I found this interesting too, I have noticed that some countries have an abundance of certain type pieces but s scarcity in other types, my guess is certain pieces were made for some countries exclusi...
  32. did you just sell me one? I love it!!
  33. very interesting shape, Ive seen these in about 6 shapes with this decor. this looks like they were blowing one shape then changed their mind, decided they were going to blow it bigger but ran out of ...
  34. love this series
  35. Cool, I have its big brother, it's probably a stand alone Easter gift from Kralik
  36. For some reason the stoopid iPhone makes every vase a little hipster-skinny!...: ) but this shape is the large 14" punching bag shape that is very familiar to most Kralik lovers. This store and label ...
  37. Ian, thanx for the measurements, I'll measure mine better and get back to this post with the measurements of that yellow one
  38. haha, your displays kill me!! its like you are playing with dominoes... p.s. I think I found a new silver foil sticker from Kralik! details soon
  39. Yes, exactly, perfectly said wow22. That is why it's natural to be confused. Some theories for similarities will come up in later posts.
  40. Well at least they were in a showcase- they do have 1000's unshown, packed away in dark basements and warehouses, are there any more of these pics?
  41. hahaha, Passau. I consider it Mecca- but my glass is marginalized, After the flood I saw normal carpenters dinging stuff around and stacking it like tupperware: )
  42. this would make a good trade....I Have seen a few with angular shapes but the piece is amazing shape, like broad facets!!
  43. Ian, I have some pics, send email to to remind me...
  44. OMG, Awsome. Cant wait to get to my images and find more of these
  45. love this example... I have many colors and shapes documented but this is the darkest brown I have (borrowed) for my pic collection; ) also the decor looks primitive, can we assume the maker of the...
  46. Also orange purple but I believe this is a variation of the red-purple
  47. I have this category of Czech glass that I playfully like to call "ugly as sin". This piece goes in that folder- Nice
  48. you mean Ruckl right ?
  49. Kralik in releaf pattern, the piece is stunning. I have seen this pattern in a few colors.
  50. Kralik bowl, very interested in this stuff. I have seen the pattern only twice before in blue with yellow and purple and red. These are the same colors as the pull-up/pull-down pieces but yours appear...
