    This post includes a beautiful style of zipper pattern. The pattern is made with a translucent (clam broth) base color with opaque white and two kids of orange; A beautiful candy stripe zipper! The lidded shape in (picture 1) is shared with many Ruckl decors including Confetti, New pelleton, confetti with vertical rods and the royal blue zipper seen two posts ago. For this reason I would attribute this piece to Ruckl.

    Meissen:
    There has been only one found with a label- but is it a manufacturer or retailer label? Meissen made other glass, porcelain and pottery but no production has matched this type of glass. I credit collectors for making this discovery, in fact all my posts come from many good collectors out there.

    *Strange note- There has been a similar label on another Ruckl piece and it reads -Schneider!

      I did research Meissen, and found they made a lot of glass shades and labeled the same way, during the 1920s-30s. I also have seen WMF German Catalogs with Kralik shades in their inventory.

      This is just another direction that documents the vast number of options glass producers had. It was the same in the USA, one company may have made glass items for another, in specific contracts.

      Nothing simple here.

      yeah, would be cool to do a side by side... Everything being equal i would still refer to the hierarchy of identification... But maybe Meissen made all the marbled and zipper pieces on tango. I'm open to alternative theories
    3. truthordare truthordare, 3 years ago
      Meissen's bread and butter was fancy decorative porcelain items, and the glass production was short lived, according to what I read, the same with WMF, they had several popular lines during the mid 1920s, but that ended with the Depression years.
      A Meissner catalog page for boudoir lamps, could be some Czech glass here.

      I would agree that this glass is Czech - thank you for the link. Great stuff

      Interesting label.
    7. truthordare truthordare, 1 year ago
      All four of these shapes have been used with other decors as Jericho said. Found on my website:
