    Once upon a time I bought an orange bowl having fallen under the spell of its dinky cobalt feet. Then one day Czechman appeared from the Glass Forest to show everyone an identical bowl, but in red and black. His bowl however had the magic oval mark reading, Made in Czechoslovakia. And so it was my orphan bowl became a prince of the House of Loetz.

    Yesterday fate struck a blow of a different stripe. Welzebub, another Glass Wizard, arrived in the global village known as C.W. with an announcement. It seems my 'pink candy striped vase' (seller's description) has been transformed into a frog and cast into the dungeon of Unknown Maker. This being the punishment for travelling the world without documentation!

    Perhaps Kipling was thinking of glass collectors when he wrote,
    If you can meet with triumph and disaster,
    And treat those two imposters just the same.....................

      BTW, I love frogs!!! They are the best kind...as they will always be Princes in the eye of the beholder! XO

      Thank you, Moon, for the kind remarks.
    4. sklo42 sklo42, 8 years ago
      Thanks Czechman. I'll take your kind comment to mean that you didn't mind featuring in a fairy tale.
    5. sklo42 sklo42, 8 years ago
      Thanks Welzebub. It seems you didn't mind either. I did totally 'get' the post that triggered this but it was such a fun idea.

      Lovely vases - both of them, prince & frog - if they kiss, I wonder what happens... ;)
    8. sklo42 sklo42, 8 years ago
      Thank you, jagsrock95. A smiley face was my aim.
    9. sklo42 sklo42, 8 years ago

      Funny post Sklo, i Wish i could write like that!!
      You should write a book or a comedy script, The War of Glass!
      They're both beautiful btw. I love the pink decor ones, and the jazzy Deco bowl!!
    11. Vintagefran Vintagefran, 8 years ago
      Sorry, i just had to read it again, it really is LOL!
      The '..from the glass forest..' How'd you do that. I envy your writing talents us much as your glass!
    12. sklo42 sklo42, 8 years ago
      Thank you Vintagefran for your generous comments.
    13. austrohungaro austrohungaro, 8 years ago
      These orange and cobalt blue Lötz pieces are so very elegant!
    14. sklo42 sklo42, 8 years ago
      Thank you austrohungaro. I only have one piece but you are right. Its understated lines set it apart from my other Tango glass.
    15. sklo42 sklo42, 8 years ago

    21. sklo42 sklo42, 7 years ago
      Oooh I hope not Ian....as a skit things had to be exaggerated....but as you're smiling I not too worried :-)
    22. sklo42 sklo42, 7 years ago
      Me too, Moon. I loved it for it's feet before I knew what it was!
    23. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 7 years ago
