  1. This seems to be a Loetz 'Etrusk' vase, the same vase was offered 2013 by James D. Julia, a green example 2012 by Dr.Fischer. The applied handles are original.
  2. I assume, that your vase may be a early Loetz production. With your kind permission. I put it into a larger context, discussing glass-jewelled decorated vases into my article at loetz.com -> identifyi...
  3. An interesting point to notice, is the gilded etched top rim decoration of this vase. As far as I know, there is not a single vase reported from Harrach, with this type of decoration, but of course m...
  4. This is a Harrach vase in the well know décor 'Formosa' introduced arround 1904
  5. I would assign this bowl to Loetz, too. But not to the early Loetz period before 1895; from the enameling, the blue opal (Tango) glass and the design of the metal handling, it seems more appropriate t...
  6. It now became clear, thanks to the combined effort of the 'Loetz Advisory Group', especially W.Galle, that vases with this décor are made by Schliersee, this vase has shape No 109, a documented Schlie...
  7. Thank you very much for all your kind comments, loves and likes.
  8. It is now more then one month, that I posted these vases on CW, in the meantime there were many "loves and likes" and I would like to thank you all, and for your kind comments, too. For those of you i...
  9. nice Tango Vase, but not Loetz Ausf-162, you may have a look onto loetz.com
  10. Hi, Moonstonelover21, vetraio50, inky, Michelleb007 and all others for your kind comments, contributions and loves Kai
  11. Ozmarty, he bird on your vase is no European Woodpecker, it is the smallest European bird, about 9 cm large, it is called "Wintergoldhaehnchen" which might be translated into "winter-golden-cockerel"
  12. None of the vases are marked, nevertheless Heckert.
  13. I did post some Heckert vases for your comparison today and added some more infos about the book by S. Zelasko
  14. Not all bird-vases are made by Harrach. The painting and the opaque-grey (Royalgrau) glass definitely suggest, that this vase was made by F. Heckert ~1890 after a design by Otto Jummel. You may compar...
  15. Sorry, I cannot understand your problem with this so called mystery decor, your first three photo comparisons show clearly, that these vases without doubt are Rindskopf, the "Confetti" examples, too. ...
  16. This is a typical Rindskopf shape and decor
  17. This type of martele is known to be made by Harrach
  18. Congratulation, this is one of the rare cases, where the item showed is commented by an informative article explaining some of the circumstances of its design and embedding in its contemporary surroun...
  19. Not Formosa but Wellenoptisch, still Loetz
  20. This is a Heckert vase
  21. This aquarell follows closely Arnold Boecklin's "Triton and Nereide" as well as other famous paintings of this Swiss artist. The originals of Boecklin are Highlights in all highly ranked Europaen Muse...
  22. This Vase is made by Beyerman&Co a Glass Raffinerie at Haida about 1910-15
  23. Sorry, this is not Kralik, but Heckert, see eg the book by S.Zelasko
  24. This unusual shape, the colour and the black top rim strongly indicate a Harrach Tango Vase, see eg "From Neuwelt to the whole World" page 360 fig.451
  25. Though famatta has some doubt on assigning this vase to Poschinger, I'm quite sure it was made by Poschinger, the decor is quite distinctive, very fine white threading pulled into loops and a soft, so...
  26. This is a early WMF Myra Vase, model J.29 made only in 1928-1929
  27. The shade matches exactly the shape of Musterschnitt 85/3883 made 1901 by Loetz for Bakalowits. The dekor mentioned there is Gre 1/72. Your Dekor Strifen+Flecken is not mentioned, but Loetz may have u...
  28. If you mean the rightmost blue vase by "unknown handled vase", I would say, this is a very well known shape of Loetz. Of course a better foto might clarify this assignment.
  29. It was suggested, that this may be Kralik Silberband, but of coursethis is Heckert.
  30. As far as I can recognize, this is the town of Grindelwald in Swizzera, you can see the Schreckhorn and at the foot of the mountain a small part of the "upper Grindelwald Glacier".
  31. To my opinion this is neither Kralik nor Loetz, but it is a "Heckert Papilon". This decor has colored glass pieces molten in between silver-yellow papilon flecks, it is very similar to "Heckert Marmop...
  32. This is a Kralik vase
  33. very nice vase, can you please inform me what number actually is or might be at the bottom ? Thank you
  34. Some years ago these silverbanded vases with "King Tut" decor have mostly been assigned to Kralik, thanks to the work of Stephania Zelasko at the Passau Glass Museum (for details, see her book) they a...
  35. To my opinion this is a bohemian vase made about 1880, a very good example of early Chinoiserie style. The vase is carefully enameled and then guilded (no brass). It may have been made by Harrach.
  36. second Vase from left is Loetz Gre 1/473 russian green
  37. This vase might nearly certainly have been made by Harrach, you may compare the almost identical enamailing taken over by Harrach from Racinet plate XIX, 18 as shown in "From New World to the Whole W...
  38. Now I looked again on your interesting Vase. Though, as a first guess, it Looks like Harrach, I now found, it is decorated with the very same lion heads, made from the same mould, as my "Brain Bronce ...
  39. This is a very well known Kralik shape and decor.
  40. This vase fitts a Harrach "Atlas" decor
  41. With very high propability this vase is made by the bohemian company "Gebrueder Funk" and not Kralik.
  42. I would suggest possibly a Bakalowits Loetz Syrius dekor
  43. Hi, this might possibly be a early Loetz vase, you may compare it with the vase shown in "Loetz Boehmisches Glas 1880-1940" Vol 1 (by Prestel) page 67 fig.13. (I hope you have this book) It shows ...
  44. To my opinion these are Kralik, there are a lot of similar "Kralik Black" vases to be seen at the Passau Glass Museum.
  45. This is a very well known Harrach vase, some examples in variuos decors may be seen at the Passau Glass Museum
  46. I have the same Vase, only half the size, same iridescense, the base glass colour is definitely (light) purple when looking against some light.
  47. The Malachit-Carneol shape match is very convincing, a great step forward in the assignment of other Rainbow vases to Loetz. Congratulation
  48. I do not know how large this vase is, but the shape may be II/5210 (though Turmalin is not explicitly listed).
  49. Concerning Turmalin, you will find it explicitly in the "Musterschnitte under 2/528 , 2/529 and the following described as "mit Batzen" up to 2/558
  50. A rainbow Vase clearly signed by the Harrach "Propeller" mark was shown in Oct.2013 by "getthatmon" in CW. The rainbow vase in the old Ricke Vol 1 page 300 is highly iridized and the rainbow decor ref...
