    As I mentioned elsewhere I came across this in a local antique shop. It's one of the décors shown on a Ruckl catalogue page reproduced in Truitt II. It's satin glass and of a good size. The glimpse of blue in image four tells that the black is actually cobalt blue.

    Not marked of course, this is the UK after all!

      I've not seen much of this glass in Australia - the satin finish combined with spatter is very attractive!

      If I remember correctly Ruckl was producing art glass for about two decades, a much shorter period than the other Bohemian companies......which may explain it.

      In fact,the 'black' is cobalt blue,very dark and this is visible on the surface in a full light.I've just checked my ball vase .
    4. sklo42 sklo42, 4 years ago
      Hi Ivonne, yes and you can just see that in image four.... Your ball vase is lovely btw !

      I'm glad you posted this Peggy as it is similar to mine (in shape) which I am still convinced is Ruckl:
    6. sklo42 sklo42, 4 years ago
      What strikes me about your vase is the polished pontil. Apart from Kralik Tango bowls you hardly see them.......
    7. sklo42 sklo42, 4 years ago
      Phil, I was referring only to Czech Art Deco pieces.
    8. philmac51 philmac51, 4 years ago
      Yes - I understand and agree the pontil and polished rim are unusual, but actually I have a handled Ruckl satin vase in the same décor as yours here and that has a polished pontil and a black 'piped' rim, like you see on Welz pieces - anyway, I'm still pretty sure it's Ruckl.

      Forgot to mention - nice piece by the way!
    10. vetraio50 vetraio50, 4 years ago
      WOW !!!

      I really love how the satin finish changes the whole aesthetic of glass. This piece is so dramatic; without the sheen the colours seem so much more intense. Wonderful piece Peggy!

      very nice.... similar to the little one with this decor
    13. sklo42 sklo42, 4 years ago
      Phil, I wasn't suggesting your vase wasn't Ruckl as I have no idea. I was just surprised by the base.

      THANK YOU, vetraio :)
    15. sklo42 sklo42, 4 years ago
      Thank you, Karen, I think you nailed it!
    16. sklo42 sklo42, 4 years ago
      Thank you kivatinitz, just so :)
    17. sklo42 sklo42, 4 years ago
      Thanks to all who troubled to look and 'love it'.
