    It has been much easier to find and collect interwar decorative glass by the firm Anton Ruckl & Sons in the post 1920 deco-tango style, with the bright orange, red, yellow and contrasting colors such as black, cobalt and magenta, than light or pale blue, lavender blue, royal blue, applied as an opaque interior surface, or as a spatter with white and/or pink.

    I'm including the 2012 poster that was prepared by the Novy Bor Glass Museum, for the Tango Sklo exhibits in four different location in the Czech Republic, all glass museums, that have a different regional approach with their glass contents and displays.

    The posters were all very detailed and used as much documentation as they could to illustrate what several glass companies were producing during the 20 year interwar period of 1919-1939.

    Ruckl at that point had not been included in the Passau series of books about Bohemian Glass, neither did many other publishers. Part of the reason is that in spite of having a registered hallmark with the date 1843, and that they operated three different plants in three different areas of Bohemia, their business was an industrial one, fullfilling the need for glass items in the medical field, the laboratory glass goods, and the pharmaceutical requirements for glass containers.

    My images are divided by 1, all the decorative glass together, 2. the larger pieces that had been identified as A. Ruckl years before I had started collecting them, some that I have attributed myself, with the study and accumulation of this specific glass, as well as comparing it to other brands, the last image has a couple pieces that might be judged as Kralik webbed decors, but the fabrication style and the shapes are by Ruckl.
