MOP green iridescent threading and rasberry red prunts. .....such! a lovely vase and in excellent condition. The iridescence colour is bright and colourful and it is an impressive size of.. 22cm or just over 8 ½ inches tall, quite heavy weighing in at.. 1lb 12oz.

Thank you for looking!...:-)

I’ve been told my vase is a Loetz and was given this link so! have changed my heading and I am including Marty’s the link...

    yeah, I was planning on suggesting this could possibly be loetz too but I was waiting to get around to looking at the book before making any comments. I am still not 100 percent sure this or Marty's is definitely Loetz.

    If you get the time and find out would love to know, thanks Greatsnowyowl!...:-)

    this shape isn't in the book. I am very interested in this decor because there are suggestions in the shape book that this might be loetz but I am not going to sure of anythign until I find one that matches one of the shapes in the book. more than one company did make similar on this style. Also not convinced of Marty's link being accurate.. maybe.. there is a close shape in pmc but not identical by any means. They're also saying 1902 but if it follows the shapes I did find that were Kralik like then it would be 1912. That said, almost all of 1902 is missing from the shape book. There is also a opal glass type with the same threading and raspberry in PMC.
    I still think it's very possible these are loetz but I'd definitely not feel comfortable going up on a podium and annoucing it to the world as such yet :) Maybe.. maybe maybe.. :)
  12. Greatsnowyowl Greatsnowyowl, 4 years ago
    Gary, it's not safe to make attributions based on base glass especially when base glass is as generic as opal glass. :)

    If it were I'd say there was absolutely no way this was Loetz, it would definitely be Kralik because Kralik definitely used it a lot in pieces that are absolutely Not Loetz. :) It is the biggest reason that I am personally shying away from thinking these are Loetz actually. I haven't seen the white opal glass from them personally.. but that doesn't mean it's not possible. the example in PMC is a translucent white opal like you see on other Loetz pieces and if the link Marty had was right their example is moosegrun.

    For me personally, this decor is one of those that are on the shelf to watch. it would be a jump to say they are Loetz at this point IMHO. But it's good to keep an open mind.
  14. inky inky, 4 years ago
    Gary..I do think that your base glass is very much the same but! wasn't sure if that was the only reason to say it was one or the other… as was not sure about mine in the first place!.. I am not that good at recognising! and really on you guys for help...Maybe I should re-head this post as Loetz/Kralik...:-)

    Thank you so much for all your guys comments have loved reading the discussion ...:-)
  15. Greatsnowyowl Greatsnowyowl, 4 years ago
    But, Gary.. No, I really don't think your piece is Loetz. that decor is not shown in the shape book in any form factor. there are a few others with varying branch patterns, but they all have more complex patterns than yours.

    the other pattern in the loetz book that is typically Kralik shows the drip rigaree a half inch down from the rim or so going around it.

    I think what probably happened is a shared commission or two with Kralik. (we know they did it.. and Kralik was a customer of Loetz as well)
  16. inky inky, 4 years ago
    I’d be happy with either....and would be nice to be 99.9% also…lol!...:-)
  17. Greatsnowyowl Greatsnowyowl, 4 years ago
    I'm not 99% sure on either one. That's a dangerous game when it comes to bohemian glass imho.
  18. inky inky, 4 years ago
    It was more of a joke with Gary referring to my last post but I do agree and understand..:-)
  19. Greatsnowyowl Greatsnowyowl, 4 years ago
    I just went back to recheck but this base color white opaque iridescent opal glass isn't represented in any of the museums we went to in the czech republic or Germany with applique.

    This is the example in PMC

    Depends on teh museum. Passau anyone can take pics.
