The result of several years of buying and collecting Czech glass era pieces, was full of twist and turns. It was a maze like exercise, often frustrating, where many shapes and decors ended as Kralik pieces instead of Ruckl.
Some of the difficulty five years ago was the group of collectors who felt they had Ruckl pieces ended up being in disagreement with me, as I followed the trail of shapes and decors, I made my own conclusions.
That does not mean there are no pieces that can be easily mistaken in their attributions, I just don't take anything for granted.
I am showing more grouping here of decors and shapes I consider identified as A. Ruckl & Sons. Again, you can compare with my previous post's where some shapes are repeated.
Of course there are more Czech glass decors, which are waiting for a stronger indication by shape and decor for a definitive direction. In fact somebody posted a new vase here today, I have the same one in purple and white with an amethyst rim. This is always exciting to see.
