One of the items on my hit list had been a Loetz floriform vase. Right before Christmas, a seller on Ebay listed two of these. I wasn't willing to pay his price, and although the listing didn't allow offers, I made an offer anyway which he surprisingly accepted. I've seen these identified as either Candia Silberiris or Clutha, so I'm not certain what to call the decor. It's a nice size measuring 13 1/2" h and has a 8 1/2" pan. Thanks for looking you guys!

    I love the foliage around the base, Rick. It adds to the feeling that this is a flower, more than a JIP, and possibly a sunflower noting its size!

    It is a beautiful piece to marvel at.....
  5. fortapache fortapache, 2 years ago
    That is a beautiful piece.

    Thanks so much for the fantastic comments and love Peggy, Fort, Bijou, Sylvia, Bob and Ken, and thank you for the love Lisa, Roy, Dlfd, Kevin, Bonnie, Adele, Mike, Bijou, Mrs T, Aura, Eza, Deb, Gary, Pat, Jim, Radegunder, and Swfin, you're all very much appreciated!

    @Peggy... I agree, the vines and leaves differentiates it from most JIP'S I've owned, and in my opinion, gives it a more authentic look.

    @Fort... Thank you, I'm glad you like it.

    @Bijou... Thanks so much I do consider it a special piece.

    @Silvia... Gracias me alegro de que te guste.

    @Bob... Thanks, but I'm sure it was just the wind that caught your eye! lol.

    @Ken... Thank you, it does stand out a bit :-)

  14. Rick55 Rick55, 2 years ago
    Thanks for the great comment, Rosie and thanks for the link... these always put a smile on my face :-)

    Thanks Tonja I guess my enthusiasm does shine through a little bit LOL. Yeah I was pretty excited when the seller allowed me to make the offer and accepted it.

    Thank you Yvonne. I keep it out on a place that one of my downlights points directly at it, and it does look amazing. Thanks!

    Thanks for the love Karen, Kurt, Thomas and Official it's always appreciated!

  27. kralik1928 kralik1928, 2 years ago
    Nice, I make offers all the time...
  28. Rick55 Rick55, 2 years ago
    Thanks Kralik. Usually when sellers don't list with a "make offer" option, I've found they usually stick to their asking price, so I was pleasantly surprised when he accepted it.

    Thank you Jean, I'm glad you like it :-)

    Thanks so much for the love Karen, Spirit, Ivonne, Thomas, Official, Celiene, Michelle and Roy, I appreciate the support!

    I never really had much luck with vases always seemed to break or chip them. I must say though this is an excellent piece Rick. Your posts and other fellow CW collectors vases and other super pieces have given me a new insight into their fine craftsmanship and true beauty:) Thanks for sharing.
  31. Rick55 Rick55, 2 years ago
    Thanks so much for the fine comments and love Roddy and Truth, and thanks for the love Radegunder, I appreciate your guys continued support :-)

    @Roddy... In my early days of collecting, we used to keep everything out on tables, counters, stands etc. and suffered numerous mishaps. I've since started putting everything in curios... much safer that way LOL.

    I too have learned so much from being a member of CW. I find things such as the history of glass, methods of manufacture, references etc. fascinating and wouldn't know half of what I know if it wasn't for other CW members.
