Five years ago when I started assembling A. Ruckl interwar Czech decorative glass, this decor of orange swirls application on a black glass background was an important one. Because it was one of the few who had been recognized as Ruckl by Jitka L. in the Czech Republic Glass Museum Tango Sklo Exhibits in 2012, and not only did she show the shape, but she showed the decor in blue background and in green back ground.
The black examples were produced in more shapes, which facilitated a number of identifications, I have never revealed how I started the process, the first piece was the large lidded round box in black and orange swirl, and then several of the spatter decors were also in this box shape.
Images represent my new Ruckl lidded jar, another jar image used with permission, which matches other Ruckl decors which I own and have posted here, one of the Ruckl exhibits at the Tango Sklo, and last another Ruckl Exhibit at the Tango Sklo. (You will note that I dont use the accent on the U, or add an e for proper spelling in English, my site is spelled rucklczglass, most people use Ruckl for searches)
Part I - to do an initial representation with the new jar as focus.
Part II - to add more examples in either shape or decor, to extend a wider study and attribution process.
