  1. I can only add that this pattern is found most commonly in purple, this green version is rare then comes gun metal gray (on black base) and the rarest so far is gold. The pattern comes in only flashed...
  2. GlueChip. thank you for all your posts, great work? the square pontil mark might be a sticker that oxidized over time differently than the surrounding glass... it does not seem to me to be a pontil ma...
  3. very cool- good post. probably kralik pressed glass, there are a whole bunch of patterns- email me at and i'll send you what I have
  4. great stuff grouping by surface texture rather than by just pattern of decor. i just broke a blue marbled one and discovered the color glass is very thin. there is a thicker base color than you would ...
  5. killer jars!!
  6. Great post. I like the consolidated best, but up close the lalique. I need the kralik in my collection though....I have no guesses or research about the mold market but Kralik and others did pieces in...
  7. Although I mostly agree with Craig I think the right step forward it to link all the pieces that have this (football) mark and see if there is a common thread. I will try to do this in another post....
  8. Incredible! Congrats!! I have seen a similar pattern is iridescent but the cutback is unique... my favorite part is the signature- sideways!!!
  9. My vote: Ruckl, Ruckl or kralik, Welz
  10. Mark, does your vase have a luster finish with horizontal lines? What gives Hoffmann away is found in the shape. Send me a pic at and i'll see what I think.
  11. Dang it!! i was totally gonna do this!!!!
  12. Good guesses! 1a kralik 1b welz 2a kralik 2b welz 3a welz 3b kralik 4a welz 4b kralik
  13. 1a welz 1b kralik 2a welz 2b kralik 3a welz 3b kralik 4a kralik 4b welz
  14. Thanks for the vote of confidence, sometimes you have to gamble to learn
  15. One thing that Jitka mentioned is that many of the workers from the south bohemian region at some point moved to Tepliz to work for Welz. Maybe it was the economy, mergers or marriage - but it is like...
  16. Nice piece, very distinctive shape, everyone seemed to make that decor but I think it's a nice vase whatever it is, I agree with the poster
  17. Thanx !! And thanx to collectors that have vision to buy pieces that are non loetz listed in no books or not on museum shelves!
  18. Austro, thank you for approval, great piece! If is ever up for grabs give me a heads up. These pics are invaluable in showing glass families had distinct maker or similarities to other makers. Thank y...
  19. Great piece, just what I like
  20. Looks Italian , maybe 50's??
  21. yes, we need a travel agent. lets all show up for a whole day of glass oogling then go down the street to the bierworks for therapy! I hope this opportunity will be good for the museum to expand the k...
  22. Great design, these were difficult to categorize but i have them under Kralik- Transparent decor- Transparent pulls. These come in several color combos but never with opaque colors; I'm guessing becau...
  23. I should have used more punctuation on the first sentence.
  24. kralik used those colors (especially the base) and the flashing on the lava pieces with the snake. but I have to agree with Al, the design is pure Ruckl based on Deb Truitts sketched catalog and Jitka...
  25. great work, maybe writers of traditional books or curators get nervous when collectors start to solve mysteries like this. social networking is a better way for me because of the speed of discoveries ...
  26. Yes, Passau means Wilder mann (unless you like barge cruises) I was in the Museum, they were moving things all over the place and the lower floors (with all the Kralik-Czech-German 1920's-30's glass) ...
  27. me too, reminds me of Mr potato head
  28. Cant thank you enough for the retailer info
  29. What is the first? I have seen a few three color tango (idea of post!) but I think the first might be how big the piece is 157s are rarely 11"
  30. I love pieces that seem ahead of their time
  31. cool pieces. i categorize them style: 1. enamel birds 2. silhouettes 3. gold deco
  32. bohemian for sure, since everyone made this type of glass truly impossible to know. this gold enameling also appears on many pieces from many makers. the trophy vases have all the colors you see here ...
  33. not to get all technical... but it is a fan vase in catagorized can also be a knuckle vase if catagorized by technique or style. It depends on your display and what you want to show in the...
  34. I got a lot of this decor, email me for a bunch of pics famatta is right, the pontil ones are a better investment probably but the lesson I learned from collecting marbles (machine made vrs hand made)...
  35. Thanx kairomalte
  36. Cool to know the distinction, never caught it before, I'll look at the whole set, send me an email request and ill shoot them over in two or three emails, you maybe right about the green one...
  37. Wow, great deco shape. I have always thought of this shape as kralik, I have one with a lid I'll link to in a few days
  38. love the shark fins, i have other pics in this style Email me for response
  39. Ugh, that's a tall order. I know there is a collector out there that has like 40 variations, I sold him one that was white with a glass molded flower attached to the center. I'll send you the set I ha...
  41. Last clarification gso- in your museum pic from your link: (L to R) 1. Attributed to Hoffmann in Ricke book 2. Attributed to Hoffmann in Passau museum 3. Not attributed 4. Attributed to Hoffmann ...
  42. No Lbuddies, got link? I've seen a few vases tho...thanx moonstoner
  43. yes, very important clarification, thank you. the attribution of the two on the left have been made as Hoffmann pieces in literature as well... I stated that I thought they would not necessarily appl...
  44. WoW, great pics. they had been attributed to hoffmann before (the simple bowl on the right) i was not convinced because of the quality of the glass. (just because the decor is the same does not mean i...
  45. 4whales-send me a link or some pics... ill shoot you back every example i have (in three emails)
  46. I know the work just not the maker. Base is the same color as those pink with pulled adventurine and controlled air bubbles. This shape comes in confetti, pelleton confetti, webbing (like the minty co...
  47. Great piece, the pieces of glass confetti are so balanced, usually they are found with the glass bits more to one side than the other. This shape is similar in every way to my Mint green with gray web...
  48. It could be, the glass reminds my if recycled glass bottles. I will do shape comparisons of the other two pieces too, they don't quite match... This example is the least matching and also becomes a ne...
  49. yikes, lots of people list these as 60's glass.. i love it when they get it wrong
  50. thanx guys... i think the smoke ring one is my favorite
