Here are two cottage glass vases. The red one is from Antonin Rückl & Sons, Vcelnicka. Each has applied decorations in clear glass including spiral ruffled rigaree and a ruffled foot.
The first vase is green and white honeycomb spatter and measures 8 inches tall. Second vase above is lined in red with an oxblood and white spatter decor. It measures 12-1/2 inches tall and was found with a manufacturers label which reads "A. Ruckl & Sons, Vcelnicka".
Please follow this link to view the actual example with the manufacturers label:
This Ruckl label design was registered in 1903 per the Glasmarken Lexicon.
Please follow this link to view that same shape with an orange colored lining:
It is obvious that the vases shown above, especially photographed side by side, are two totally different shapes. Especially obvious considering one vase is 8 inches tall and the other is 12-1/2 inches tall. That is not how I feel they are related but through each respective decor being found on a variety of other matching shapes. For example:
and here's the smaller vase in the red lined decor identified as Ruckl:
There is a web link being posted on CW lately that takes you to another webpage or honeycomb study page. The author suggest careful observation of the two shapes above but neglects to include that there is a very obvious difference in height.
As with my other spatter glass CW postings these two vases are double cased in clear. The inner casing layer on both is a paper thin layer of glossy clear.
All constructive comment and questions are welcome.
