    IronLace
    (730 items)

    Spiny, spiky, lumpy, knobbly...Victorian art glass had a craze for "rustic" forms that imitated nature & turned it into something fantastical. I must admit that thorny glass has a place in my heart. It's ugly-beautiful, menacingly pretty, & downright kooky.
    First two photos show a variety of pieces in yellows & greens from England & Bohemia. There's a smattering of Kralik & Welz for the devotees out there. The uranium thorn vase on a tree root base was purchased in London in 2003 & I believe it to be by John Walsh Walsh.
    Second two photos show pinks, reds, mauve, & blue...by diverse makers including John Walsh Walsh, Stevens & Williams, & others. The particularly odd round vase with wheels for feet is possibly early Loetz...or Harrach.

      Well said, racer, & I am so pleased that the pics have been entertaining. And I try to find the beauty in thorny, difficult things as much as I can... :-)

      Love the hanging basket vase in particular, although all very desirable! Maker?
    10. IronLace IronLace, 4 years ago
      Thanks so much, Justanovice...when I bought the hanging vase set I thought it was perhaps English - but Kralik made similar items...saw one rather like it pictured in the reproduction Kralik catalogue...
