  1. 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".
  2. 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...
  3. This is a Kralik vase
  4. very nice vase, can you please inform me what number actually is or might be at the bottom ? Thank you
  5. 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...
  6. 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.
  7. second Vase from left is Loetz Gre 1/473 russian green
  8. 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...
  9. 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 ...
  10. This is a very well known Kralik shape and decor.
  11. This vase fitts a Harrach "Atlas" decor
  12. With very high propability this vase is made by the bohemian company "Gebrueder Funk" and not Kralik.
  13. I would suggest possibly a Bakalowits Loetz Syrius dekor
  14. 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 ...
  15. To my opinion these are Kralik, there are a lot of similar "Kralik Black" vases to be seen at the Passau Glass Museum.
  16. This is a very well known Harrach vase, some examples in variuos decors may be seen at the Passau Glass Museum
  17. I have the same Vase, only half the size, same iridescense, the base glass colour is definitely (light) purple when looking against some light.
  18. The Malachit-Carneol shape match is very convincing, a great step forward in the assignment of other Rainbow vases to Loetz. Congratulation
  19. I do not know how large this vase is, but the shape may be II/5210 (though Turmalin is not explicitly listed).
  20. 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
  21. 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...
  22. This is a Harrach vase with the "Blumenfloret" decor as documented in "...300 years Harrach Glass ..." at page 307 fig: 362
  23. If one follows J.Mergl et.al. in "Loetz Boehmisches Glas 1880-1940" ed. Hatje Cantz, page 54 fig.9 then Loetz rainbow glass looks totally different as compared to your pair. It is described as being v...
  24. The shape, the decor and the type of manufacturing is typical for Arsall, a German factory: Lausitzer Glaswerke, Weiswasser , made in about 1920, today worth about 600-900 Euros
  25. very interesting find and excellent assignment, congratulations
  26. Just a tiny remark onto your Gre 2/1448 you used in this headline. The Loetz nomenclature on production numbers is quite tricky. This vase of reference is PN II/1448, the phenomen genre would be call...
  27. I wouldn't assign Gre 2/318 to this decor, as Gre 2/318 shows 4 leafs stretching upwards from the bottom in a straight line. This vase shows in between the higher extending leafs a set of smaller leaf...
  28. This is a well documented Webb "Bronce glatt" vase
  29. Definitively not Loetz, in my opinion. A vase with the same rainbow decor and this typical type of ribbs is exhibited at the Passau Glass Museum and is assigned to Harrach. Befor some weeks, a vase wi...
  30. This is a very well documented Kralik shape
  31. I would say harrach
  32. I would skip Muller or Stephanek as candidates, as these Czech studio artists didn' use such thick glass overlayed as shown in this example.
  33. This is not Loetz Cytisus, the Vase is made by a completely different technique. To my opinion it might be a vase made Charles/David Lotton, who often tried to imitated Loetz glass. I know some excell...
  34. Thank you, indeed the more transparent glass doesn't fit here.
  35. I collect systematically fotos of bohemian Art Nouveau glass available in the internet. To my knowledge, there is no copyright on these fotos, as long as I do not use them commercially. I looked in my...
  36. There are no marks on the tableware, the size in decreasing orde of the 1.st set is: 17.0, 8.3, 8.3, 5.5 cm the cups. The second set is 18.0 and 5.0 cm the Cups.
  37. Sorry, the 3.rd is not Loetz, though it has a stamp - Czecho Slovakia - in oval. This figure is shown on a fotographie of Harrach Tango figures and carries the handwritten number production number 4/...
  38. this is the first Harrach signed rainbow vase I met, now I can assign a lot of other Harrach items correctly, wonderful.
  39. I also would strongly suggest Harrach
  40. Hi Jericho, you will not find an exact match of your decor in "Neuwelt, 300 years..." but the details of "Brocat" glass are described in the text on page 258 left column and related examples are show...
  41. This is Harrach "Brocatglass" made from 1888 onwards in various colors, for details read eg Neuwelt page 258 ff
  42. This is not Heckert "Marmopal", as this decor always contains flecks of colored glass, mainly in brown, red or green within the papilon decor.
  43. This is a very well known Loetz decor, but still not easily to be assigned to a described "Phenomen Genre". Your assignment to 2/490 may be incorrect, as it would need an orange deminished ground and ...
  44. Does the vase has a polished pontil ? If not, it may be one of the modern Czech studio vases imitating Loetz, but usually too intensively colored (made by Muller or Stephanek and others) currently flo...
  45. This is neither Loetz nor Heckert, it is Kralik and there are many vases of differring typical Kralik shape known exhibiting this decor.
  46. Hi, I would suggest the decor being near Gre 1/104
  47. Usually you can clearly see the fading of the papilon decor into stripes into the direction of the mouth, in your case this is more difficult to see, but it is still there and I don't know if the vase...
  48. this is a typical Kralik decor quite often found on many different Kralik shapes. Your Vase seems to be a bit cut down too much, as otherwise you would observe, that Kralik tried to copy the well kno...
  49. Hi, I think it is made by Hans Erni (or Ernie), a Swiss painter.
  50. Hi, if the signature would read as "Betty Hedrich" then this should be a vase made by Poschinger, the decor and shape also point to Poschinger.
