  1. Your original idea, assigning this décor to Kralik actually was correct, many pieces must have been re-assigned to Heckert, but this specific décor is still Kralik, known from many other Kralik shapes.
  2. Your vase is very likely made by Auguste Jean about 1890, a famous French glass artist. Usually his vases are signed at the bottom in red colour A.J. His vases are quite valuable and not very often on...
  3. Thank you for all your kind comments, conrtibutions, Loves and Likes.
  4. Dear Deb, I still remember with great joy strolling and photographing at the Passau Glass Museum. Now, your excellent post and your experties claryfy again the correct assignment of Alfredo's vase ...
  5. The Myra vase is model J.86 and your version is called 'Rauch' made in 1937, similar is the 'Perlmut' series. J.86 comes in 'Myra Red', too. For further infos see: Carlo Burschel, Heinz Scheiffele ' W...
  6. Your painting shows the lovely small town of Brienz located at the 'Brienzer See' (lake of Brienz) in Swizerland.

  9. Craig, of course I remember our discussions about this assignment using the same photos some years ago and I would have liked to have more examples, too, nevertheless I wanted to show this possible dé...
  10. I totally agree, Heckert patented shapes etc., you may please have a look onto Thamm shape Th-60 published on page 201 fig. 349 of S.Zelasko in her book 'Fritz Heckert'. With respect to the 'known dec...
  11. Though this vase looks like a mixture of the Loetz décor 'Chine' with the mouth lent from Holubetz design and made obviously by some (ignorant) glass imitator, it is nevertheless a true (and unique) L...
  12. Thank you for all kind contributions and discussions as well as for all loves and likes.
  13. Hi Craig, I'm still hapy to remember the interesting time and the good discussions we had, when you set up your excellent website on Kralik, where I had the honor to make some contributions. Since ...
  14. As far as I know only Fritz Heckert did sign his patented 'Coralene' decorated glass ware by 'Patent'.
  15. The Dr. Fischer auction was in Mar.2012 lot 320
  16. 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.
  17. 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...
  18. This is a Harrach vase in the well know décor 'Formosa' introduced arround 1904
  19. 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...
  20. 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...
  21. Thank you very much for all your kind comments, loves and likes.

  24. Hi, Moonstonelover21, vetraio50, inky, Michelleb007 and all others for your kind comments, contributions and loves Kai
  25. 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"
  26. None of the vases are marked, nevertheless Heckert.
  27. I did post some Heckert vases for your comparison today and added some more infos about the book by S. Zelasko
  28. 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...
  29. This is a typical Rindskopf shape and decor
  30. This type of martele is known to be made by Harrach
  31. 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...
  32. Not Formosa but Wellenoptisch, still Loetz
  33. This is a Heckert vase
  34. 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...
  35. This Vase is made by Beyerman&Co a Glass Raffinerie at Haida about 1910-15
  36. Sorry, this is not Kralik, but Heckert, see eg the book by S.Zelasko
  37. 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
  38. 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...
  39. This is a early WMF Myra Vase, model J.29 made only in 1928-1929
  40. 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...
  41. 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.
  42. It was suggested, that this may be Kralik Silberband, but of coursethis is Heckert.
  43. 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".
  44. 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...
  45. This is a Kralik vase
  46. very nice vase, can you please inform me what number actually is or might be at the bottom ? Thank you
  47. 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...
  48. 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.
  49. second Vase from left is Loetz Gre 1/473 russian green
  50. 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...
