The illustrations above are from a ca 1931 Antonin Rückl & Sons Catalog. The Ruckl catalog page was published in "Collectible Bohemian Glass II" 1915-1945, by R & D Truitt, on Page 75.
This first illustration shows scattered groups of murrine or cane style decorations on a solid colored background. It's proper name is Tango Murano. Yes, Ruckl actually had a Millefiori style decor named Tango Murano.
The second illustration shows what I feel is a live example of this decor.
The third illustration shows Ruckl Decor Number 12528. This decor consists of dark colored webbing over a green or contrasting background. It's most commonly found on ball shaped vases.
Instead of showing live examples matching the third illustration, I thought it would be best to see what others come up with.
Do any of these decors look familiar?
Last picture shows a ball vase with a distinct narrow rim and collar shape. This vase was on display as Ruckl in the 2012 Tango Exhibit. It was likely manufactured both with and without handles. This vase shape was imported into the USA as it is often found with providence marks.
