Good Morning CW Members--- 2:30 AM)2016-7-30
Many of you,,,,who know me, know I love Birds, the other day I was online shopping and looking(like many of us), I come across this beautiful Art Glass Duck, the seller as alway's(by Ignorance or Knowing) described this Duck to be made by LOETZ, this particular seller, sell by consignment, so he believe what the owner believe ( this duck is in the family for generation and this duck was made by LOETZ), by the seller pictures, it's hard to see if the etching mark was genuine and real, but in the first place, I LOVE THE PIECE OF GLASS, and not really bought it for the etching itself, I don't gone a lie to you, that if the etching was genuine from LOETZ, this will be a plus value, but after I receive the duck, I knew right away by looking with magnifier lens the Mark was fake, I have compare some mark before with a vase(Banded Kralik) on the LOETZ.com.
The LOETZ mark on the duck was made with some kind of vibrating tool(picture 4), loetz, austria, p377
This duck is impressive and a very nice piece of Art Glass combine with brass metal work.
This Art Glass Duck stand, 7.75 inch tall, 5.25 inch wide and 12 inch long.
Impressive 8 pound 12 oz
Thanks Everyone for Viewing.
