    This posting is for Roycroftbooksfromme1 to show examples of compotes with a particular bowl shape in coloured opal variants.

    The beautiful examples shown above are from a Carl Hosch catalog with various makers and can be referenced from the West Virginia Museum of American Glass.

    WVMOAG Catalog: Carl Hosch Reprint of Bohemian Glass Catalog, ca. 1906-1912 - Czech glass
    (Abundantly chock-full of various hand painted art glass shapes with ornate metal stands shown in colour from epergnes, tazza/compote stands, vanity sets, decanter sets, vases, and oil lamps.)

    Thanks, for looking! :)

      Thank you much for giving me your time I'll have to look in to all this for sure much to learn..but I did notice Hosch started around 1906 .. so did he just copy or buy the Heckert mold someone all ways has to be first ...smiling
      I have to find out if Hosch ever worked for Heckert on anyone who worked for Hosch ...So much to learn ..thanks very much eyes are open now '-)))

      #3782 is quite ornamental, it’s the bowls off to the sides. I wonder how they packed these delicate works well over a century ago? With straw breaking down, I wonder how many arrived unscathed? Wish I could order a few! Ha!

      Hi Roy! Yeah, to fill you in on Carl Hosch, the firm was founded in 1864 and was one of the largest Bohemian refining-exporting companies producing all types of glassware and chandeliers. Hosch purchased hot-decorated glass from many Bohemian glasshouses (such as Kralik for example) as well as finished items from other refineries. The company was family owned and the company was passed down through generations. So it's likely Carl Hosch purchased the bowl shape from Heckert and added the metal stand. Given I can't prove it, but with seeing the same shape in the Hosch catalog, it is very possible. Enjoy your compote, Roy. It sure is a lovely example. Glad we connected. :)

      Hi Eileen! Out of the examples shown, I too love example #3782. I've owned a compote with the same colour variation, but different shape which can be found in the Hosch catalog. Looking at the green colour, one might hope it is vaseline glass, but it's not. Have to get busy this week and share my findings! lol It is interesting thought to wonder how much glass was broken through shipments. I can only imagine. Thankful, for what has survived over the years and yes, like you, I always wish I could order a few. Too funny! Love the way you think.
