In his previous post Ozmarty asked for more informations on early Fritz Heckert bird vases. Here are some examples for comparison with his post. The backside of the pheasant vase shows details of the typical floral enameling characteristic for Fritz Heckert and the design by Otto Jummel about 1890. The last pink vase exhibits the very same birds as the vase published on page 83 Fig.85 in the book "Fritz Heckert Kunstglas Industrie 1866-1923" by Stefania Zelasko, edited by Georg Hoeltl, Glasmuseum Passau. All three vases are quite large, a little bit more then 30 cm. They are blown from the top and have no pontil.
