    As yet there hasn't been a lot of information surfacing on the internet. Most of what there is resides here on CW, so this posting is mainly to add to the growing picture library for Funk Brothers Glass. Glasfabrik Gebruder Funk & Co., from what I can find, began around 1909-10 in a town then called Penzig. This is an area still referred to as Silesia that before WWI was part of Bohemia that then had a sizable German population. Between the wars, it was Germany. After WWII, it was Poland. That probably ensures that the Germany mark on Funk products dates to the 1920-30s. The same for the labels.

    The first vase is the iconic Funk 5" (13 cm) step vase showing a dense spatter decor and an acid-stamped mark. The second vase is a less recognizable shape, just over 6" (15.5 cm) tall, with an open, unusually colored spatter decor, and a nicely preserved label. Both have white interiors and sheared rims.

      Thank you Malkey - it's really more curiosity than knowledge.

      artfoot, I have been following Gebruder Funk for years, and have a folder of images of their pieces. I add to it whenever I come across a new example. I really like the spatter of your stepped vase - it is a very nice one, with rich colors. Thanks for the research into their location, too!

      Thanks Michelle, I discovered Funk Glass about a year ago, so I'm a relative newcomer but I too have been collecting images. I like very much the quality of the work.

      I like the shape very much.It's quite distinctive.
      Gebr.Funk glassworks still exists in Piensk (former Penzig) as Luzyce (Lusatia)glassworks.They mainly produce lamp shades,what can you see in a film here:http://www.luzyce.pl/o-firmie/
