    Leah Goodwin provided this page from a 1915 Rindskopf catalog of glass, my impression was that it was mostly clear ornate pressed glass items, but one page is completely different, which I had not seen, and contained several pieces in a different style, including to elegant bud vases, which I had seen on Ebay, was curious about, and were bright red and bright orange, with silver deposit decorated rim, foot rest, and 4 vertical lines which follow the 4 sided designs.

    I will add a link to the bud vase images in a comment. The pictures are not very informative, but I hope to acquire one of them eventually for further study.

    Edited May 29th - I have acquired one of the vases, 10 inches tall, and can post two images, till I have it, could take a month these days. I think it is the design of the one on the right. Image 1 and 2.

    Edited JUne 12th - After receiving this vase this week, finally. I need to change some of what I wrote before, the black decor is enamel not silver, the orange is a reflection, actually base under the red, and the vase is pressed not hot molded.

    This makes sense, I will add another picture at the same angle as the catalog drawing, the dimensions differ, but the 3 point clear foot shape matches I think. You don't think so, that's fine.

    Edited June 18th: I finally got my old camera to work and upload the latest set of images, which included these for the comparison of the drawing to an actual glass bud vase in the same shape. The catalog representation has a reverse shading of the corners and the 4 panels in between, also the way it is positioned shows a discrepancy in the base fabrication, which is an optic illusion taken from that angle, the curved area between the feet is accurate, just not as pronounced as the drawing in black and white. I often comment about the identification of glass and using images to do it, often this can lead to false perceptions.

    I am adding 2 images, evidence that this red glass bud vase is much more a close match to the vase on the right. Even is the decor is not the same.

      Neiother this vase, nor the one in the link match eiother of these drawings. they are different products by different houses, and I doubt them to be Rindskopf. The line art may be, but the glass itself... No.

      I have added 2 new images of the bud vase, at a different angle, and it makes all the difference between the seller image taken from above and mine was taken from below.

      Years ago I made an exercise post here on CW, with a vase that had the same width at the upper rim and the base, but depending which angle you used, you could achieve images that were inaccurate, with either a wider rim, or a wider base.

      Hi Eileen, I have not been as relaxed in a long time, it coincides with more time spent outdoors and enjoying the fresh air and the flowers. So not as busy here, but still keep an eye on whats new. Wish you a good summer too. Lisa
