  1. Just posted three new photos, all taken in natural light, to complement the one in the mix that was professionally done.
  2. Thank you racer4four, artfoot, vetraio50, and VioletOrange.
  3. Thank you, Bill.
  4. Thank you Coopergirl, Vladimir, aura, fortapache, vetraio50, and VioletOrange.
  5. Good enough. I like the placement. It adds uniqueness.
  6. Very nice, Vetraio. Why do you suppose the moon is situated at knee level for her? It's unusual to see someone looking down at the moon.
  7. What a wonderful way to find something that cool.
  8. Thank you, Coopergirl.
  9. Thanks for the comment, Trey.
  10. Thank you, Sean.
  11. I decided to explore mid-century pottery of Eastern Europe and found it. It was made by Ditmar Urbach of Czechoslovakia, seemingly in the 30s like all of you said. Go to
  12. I purchased my first mid-century piece from a ceramics dealer in the Netherlands the other day and shared photos of the vase that we're trying to figure out. Here's what he said: "Difficult to say: 1...
  13. Thanks for your thoughts, billretirecoll.
  14. Art.pottery and vetraio, thank you much for your takes on this. And excellent website reference, vetraio. Glad you like the snail, inky. Pure speculation on my part.
  15. Thank you and same to you, Sean. I rarely get to spend time on Collectors Weekly these days, but I've noticed that you continue to discover new pottery makers and add to your collection. I enjoy see...
  16. Thank you, racer.
  17. Katherine, I found the ebay commmunity forum with the description of the mark. Unfortunately, the author doesn't cite the source. However, it's the best we can do for now so I'll remove the unsolved...
  18. Thank you, Sean.
  19. Czechglass5, thank you for the compliment. It's all ceramic and without enamel.
  20. Thank you for finding that information about the mark, katherinescollections.
  21. I love the way the big beautiful "eye" stares right at me. Very nice catch, Sean.
  22. Thank you, Sean.
  23. Thank you, martika.
  24. Thank you, V. You are always so helpful. That mark comes in many subtle variations, but thanks to a link you provided on another Rosenthal post I was able to revise the date to circa 1910, which is...
  25. I love it. It's one of those wild "out there" forms by Amphora. And I don't recall seeing a better glaze on it.
  26. This piece is sweet.
  27. Good Golly Miss Molly. That is rich.
  28. That is an interesting discovery, ho2cultcha. Zsolnay numbered their pieces in a chronological fashion, allowing one to know the date within a 1-2 year range. My poppy vase was made right around 1900...
  29. This piece is a stew of exciting things going on.
  30. I am commenting again because this piece should have even more loves from the Collectors Weekly community.
  31. Now those are glaze drips! Color combo is also stellar.
  32. Kahler has grown on me. I would like to see some pieces in person so I can truly get a feel for it.
  33. Thanks for the compliment, ho2cultcha. I don't know much about Germany so I can't answer your question about a geranium craze around 1930. Apparently, Zsolnay of Hungary thought the geranium was wor...
  34. I posted a better photo.
  35. I second cogito's statement.
  36. Love the hoarfrost glaze. Reminds me of a wintry day.
  37. Simply fab.
  38. The sake flask is killer.
  39. How did I miss this? So very cool.
  40. A beauty.
  41. Thank you Elisabethan and surfdub66 and everyone else for the loves.
  42. Thank you for the loves and comments, all. Freiheit, Amphora did a series of vases that collectors have labeled the Klimt series. Amphora and Klimt were contemporaries, likely quite aware of each ot...
  43. Vetraio, Vase delivered today--it does not disappoint. The company mark appears to match the one used 1914-23. And it appears that Mycock dated it 1919.
  44. Thank you Elisabethan and PhilDavid.
  45. What an expressive face. And the eyes are trippy.
  46. That is just cool looking.
  47. Thanks for the comments and loves all.
  48. Check this vase out, Sean. I believe it has the same mark. Your vase and this vase sure look like they c...
  49. 1919 is my guess at the moment. If I find anything new once I inspect it, I'll let you know.
  50. Posted the mark, vetraio. Thanks aghcollect and Sean.
