  1. Hi Jericho ... yeah, by the way, did you see this pair, you didn't comment, which isn't like you : http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/222075-kralik-pair-of-iris-caned-vases-millefi
  2. Your quite right, but I'm not purposefully looking for it, I just come across it looking for Harrach pieces for example, and if the price is right, normally when the seller doesn't know what he's got,...
  3. and you too IronLace - Cheers!
  4. Again... Thanks for the comment - I just keep stumbling upon this stuff lately.
  5. Always good to get your feedback Malkey - Thank you!
  6. Hi Michelle - I was extremely lucky with this one, listed on Ebay with a very poor, none descriptive title and just 2 pics. I enquired about the condition - I didn't place a bid, and two days later, a...
  7. Another fabulous group shot!!
  8. I just love the riot on this one Peggy!
  9. Hi Celiene, I'm not sure exactly - probably sometime between 1870-1880, maybe earlier?
  10. Come on Jericho love mine and I'll love yours!
  11. ooooohh!
  12. ...welcome to the dark side Kaz....!
  13. Alan and Kev - Thanks for the comments guys
  14. Thanks Penny - Salamanders - yes me too, always admired the ones with them on the sides of vases, but to have three put to purpose is a bonus. And though they look delicate they are actually very subs...
  15. Thanks Malkey, I can't begin to tell you how difficult it was to do the deal on this one, but it was certainly worth the trouble.
  16. Thanks Peggy - it was a lucky find I have to tell you!
  17. Thank you Mrs T
  18. Caramel!!! - yes that's the colour - Thanks Malkey!
  19. Thanks Alan - This one wasn't so tough, although I recently bought a spectacular early Harrach piece last week .... and, well, it was something of a Saga - negotiated for a week!! Some sellers are ver...
  20. Thanks Scott... you gotta love it, right?
  21. Very nice Alan...!
  22. Thank you Michelle - So I've had my head turned by yet another maker....does it ever stop this obsession?!
  23. Love this Ian.... I remember a full set of 6 glasses in this décor including this exact same pitcher and it's lid and only one glass had a small chip on it on ebay.co.uk about a year ago - £100 for th...
  24. I love these 'propellor' vases, and a real eye opener on the decor, thanks for posting Michelle.
  25. Thanks Penny.... Interestingly, I have some lingering suspicions about this piece, which Karen has politely and subtly pointed out and which has been mentioned too by others. If there appears a flock...
  26. Very nice indeed and the enamel is in such great condition, great find!!
  27. I really like this vase Ian - and those handles!!
  28. Fabulous group shot Peggy!
  29. Ooh, this is a very nice thing Fran love the inclusions and those "raspberry prunts!!"
  30. Thanks Michelle, great to have it ID'd. I have often seen them referred to as such, great to have a trusted confirmation.
  31. Thanks Craig.... As always I appreciate your input. I guess I can safely assume it to be Czech Bohemian, the base certainly shows good aged wear for that period.
  32. @skivatinitz Thank you for your comment. A very important pre-nouveau French artist that studied under Eugene Rousseau in Paris from the 1860s. Ernest-Baptiste did not sign his work until after he too...
  33. Thanks Ian... I'm hoping that Craig will comment, will be interesting to see what he thinks.
  34. Love the flamingos too!
  35. It just feels Danish to me Phil rather than Deco, also has an Eames feel about it too - who knows, either way and whatever period it is rather special, absolutely love it!
  36. How very interesting - Thank you - I think I'm gonna change my title on the basis of this Peggy!
  37. As always.... thanks Malkey!
  38. IronLace - yes Harlequin fit - it does look like that. I wouldn't be inclined to call it tango though as it is a translucent purple. Thanks for the comment!
  39. Thanks for the comment matey!
  40. Glad you like it Malkey. I have to say, it really is a seriously substantial piece of glass.
  41. Thank you Phil and Kev for your comments
  42. I was watching this one Peggy.... I also seem to remember an old post of Jericho's when he identified something similar as being Kralik??
  43. Another gem!!
  44. Gorgeous!!!
  45. It really is something else Justanovice - and yes, heated debate goes on...and on...which I'm tempted to do right here, but I'll bite my lip and stick to Art Glass rather than politics... Thanks for y...
  46. Hi Malkey, I just posted it: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/226052-leveille-rousseau-glass-vase-c1880s?in=user
  47. ...and the condition is amazing - well done!!
  48. Peggy.... it seems that Monart collectors are a pretty serious bunch... it was never gonna fool those guys that's for sure.
  49. Thanks you very much for you comment Penny..
  50. WHAT! this is just beautiful!
  51. See more
