I believe all four of these vases can be generically called "Bohemian Art Nouveau Glass". They range in height from about 6 inches (far left) to almost 13 inches (far right). The two on the right are Harrach and I am uncertain of the maker/s of the two on the left (Moser, Harrach, et. al?). I think they make a nice grouping, so I have here posted them as such rather than individually. All photos are mine except for the second from the left. That one I was fortunate enough and quick enough to purchase on eBay this week. It will be some time before it gets here from the UK.

    Great grouping, I would love to collect Harrach but there seems to be a crazy price range for pieces.... Also they show so much technique in glass blowing and decorating

    Thanks all for your kind comments. I think #4 & #2 are my favorites too (or will be when #2 arrives). Number 2 is also uranium glass and glows under black light.

    Number 3 has the Harrach "three feather plume" mark plus 1225/6 and V572. An almost identical piece is pictured on page 267 of "From Neuwelt to the Whole World". That piece (in the Museum of Glass, Harrachov) is numbered 1225/9 and O572. The differences are the color (greenish where mine is canary yellow) and the height (7" where mine is 10"). This may mean that the number after the " / " may designate height, e.g. 7" vs. 10" in this case and the letter difference (O vs V in this example) may refer to the color difference.

    The example in the Museum was made in 1888 and is described as "Colourless glass, with white opal underlay, optical ( air trap) decoration of wild roses with leaves, emphasized by embedded ruby red glass powder, overlaid with colourless glass and painted in raised gold.

    Vase #4 on the far right is imposing at 13 inches in height. There are many features that I like about this vase:
    1.The crackle glass layer. 2. The "feet" that extend up so high onto the sides of the vase and are decorated as well. I have not seen this often. 3. The rim shape with the "mixed in" blue and gold painting. 4. The choice of the cattails and other florals that emphasize the vertical aspects of the vase.

    I'm trying to cut back on "loving" glassware as I'm not really a glassware guy...but... Wow! These are amazing!!!

    Hi VO
    Nice pieces ... think I "bid on" or "watched" the first 2 ...
    GSO posted on number 3 a while back:

    Orange .. 1225/6 .. Plume mark .. V572 ...
    Interesting piece ... Thanks

    SteveS, Thanks for your comments. I'm wondering if the "other number 3" is cut down - because of the exact matching numbers? If the top is finished and it is not a cut-down damaged example - then my comments on the numbering are not correct.

    inky, thanks for your many appreciative comments. It is a nice way to archive and share what I collect - much better than an estate auction catalog

    Stunning!!

    Hi VO
    ... is a good thought ... certainly is compatible with being a cut down piece or a modified design based on the same mold ...
    Also interesting as it is more an "Intarsia" than a "Dessine" (as identified in 300 years ...) design ...
    Cheers
