    A. Ruckl & Sons have an interesting history, they made glass medical supplies, for labs and the treatment of patients for instance. Then post WWI they decided to enter in the decorative glass field.

    From 1920 they embraced the trend of Tango glass initiated by Loetz in 1914, and much of their products were influenced by the colors of that style, yellow, orange, red and cobalt blue.

    As a collector, that is what most of my collection contains, but in the last few years I have come across the same shaped pieces, in white, pale yellow, and pink. Usually spatters or in the shimmy pfau decor they are famous for. I should not be surprised as several sheets of their glass merchandise contained many styles, some quite subtle applications in a pale marble effect, as well as subdued light spatters on white. these sheets came from Ruckl and were in the documentation of the Truitts, they were also used in the Novy Bor Glass Museum large posters, prepared for the Tango Sklo National Exhibits in 2o12.

    It is easy to forget by many when they are focused on my personal efforts that Antonin Ruckl had three long standing glass works, and there is much documentation available of their good quality decorative and utilitarian glass during the interwar period, quite a lot of pieces had to do with lighting, small lamps, shades, etc.

    To keep my website current, I am adding a new page for groupings of these glass pieces. Here the post shows a few examples I own.
