1. This captures more or less what I saw at Passau in 2006: the gold called Loetz, the silver, Kralik.
2. Thanks to Warren, I got this piece in bronze martelé. Notice the feet! Both color and technique are found in Loetz. [I have also seen the shape minus the feet and rigaree]
3. Three cabinet pieces I attribute to Kralik.
4. Another Kralik-attributed Nautilus with a deep blue rigaree.
From loetz.com we learn the ground is always martele, and the decor includes gold rigaree and sometimes prunts. The rim may also be decorated,But I noticed some of the vases have silver rigaree!
It is my considered opinion that both Loetz and Kralik made this decor. Regardless of provenance, these pieces are high quality. I unaware of rigaree pieces made by Harrachov.
Let comments begin.
