  1. Shawn, I'm posting in this account using a collection of images that is over 10,000 images strong - my personal collection is under Kralik1928
  2. Fantastic, I bought one years ago in this same decor and a month later the dealer was selling a second one- so these shapes obviously look better pairs. I've only seen two more decors in this shape: r...
  3. I with, this shape is 5 1/2" . There are examples of 12" tho...
  4. love this shape
  5. p.s. we have great light levels in Cali : )
  6. i bid on this sucker!! congratz
  7. cool, love the lid because its glass not pot metal
  8. thanx Ruckle
  9. its a very nice pattern on a rare shape, congratz
  10. I can make two small distinctions in this sub-species of Bambus. The shapes 1 and 2 are definitely Kralik with other decked in common with Kralik. The other two do not have any comparable decors that...
  11. I would loosely say Kralik. The purple base color can be seen in the punch in bowls that look organic, the gold base can be seen in embossed pattern pieces and animal figure decanters. that sticker is...
  12. real gold?
  13. thanks for the historical context, I think she has interesting design but to simple for me... I wonder if she considered vases that were too decorated to detract from the beauty of their flower arrang...
  14. I love this grouping of tall deco shapes, the foot (from the bottom) all look the same and appears to be produced in the same way. I've seen the tool (form) in the Kralik Museum in Lenora CR that most...
  15. Thank you Welz- I do think the base is too opaque to be Czech
  16. I think it is a Kralik piece 20's - 30's this same shape comes in may decors: tango to cluthera, mica, and transparents... sometimes the stencil signature was never applied well and it can look sandbl...
  17. Kralik did the same pattern in reverse; White with black stripes
  18. Thank you, yes this thick gooped-on color with ruffled pattern is super interesting to me. Shape studies do help; I have seen red, yellow, green and cobalt as other colors. Any other base colors come ...
  19. I have it in burgundy pull-ups like everyone else - blue looks to be rare!!
  20. My advice is get a big one in a decor other than powders... They are great stand alone pieces and can range wildly in price
  21. Thanx moonstone
  22. Thank you for your thoughts but actually it's two kids that I fear the most
  23. its welz because of the lebel, ive seen it on about 80 pieces. for a while i could have sworn this piece exhibited a pattern that was common to Kralik or Ruckl - specifically the mottled blurry cased ...
  24. Incredible piece. I call these releaf (play on words) pieces under the powder decor category. I suspect the piece was embossed with a metal mold before of after "ballooning"- the pattern stayed on and...
  25. killer stuff, cant believe i missed this!!
  26. Very cool, i love it!! I was looking into doing a series of these pull-up types based on decor (type of pull) but it is so cool to see the shapes compared too. this glass seemed cheap and easy to prod...
  27. nice work! i love side-by-side studies. the mark looks the same to me though- maybe some acid marks are thicker or thinner based on the acid residue spreading out a bit. the interesting one is the sil...
  28. 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...
  29. 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...
  30. 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
  31. 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 ...
  32. killer jars!!
  33. 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...
  34. 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....
  35. Incredible! Congrats!! I have seen a similar pattern is iridescent but the cutback is unique... my favorite part is the signature- sideways!!!
  36. My vote: Ruckl, Ruckl or kralik, Welz
  37. 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.
  38. Dang it!! i was totally gonna do this!!!!
  39. Good guesses! 1a kralik 1b welz 2a kralik 2b welz 3a welz 3b kralik 4a welz 4b kralik
  40. 1a welz 1b kralik 2a welz 2b kralik 3a welz 3b kralik 4a kralik 4b welz
  41. Thanks for the vote of confidence, sometimes you have to gamble to learn
  42. 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...
  43. 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
  44. Thanx !! And thanx to collectors that have vision to buy pieces that are non loetz listed in no books or not on museum shelves!
  45. 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...
  46. Great piece, just what I like
  47. Looks Italian , maybe 50's??
  48. 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...
  49. 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...
  50. I should have used more punctuation on the first sentence.
