Bohemian glass 1890-1940+ especially multi-coloured tango, bottom-up spatters, yellow gilded or enamelled things, things with silver rims and thorn vases. Not to meBohemian glass 1890-1940+ especially multi-coloured tango, bottom-up spatters, yellow gilded or enamelled things, things with silver rims and thorn vases. Not to mention post-war Chribska. And that is just at the moment. Most of my favourites are (relatively) mass-produced survivors meant for use. I am learning - and, I hope, developing - all the time. I am a professional man living and working on Britain's south coast. (Read more)


  1. Dear George, I think most of us would recognise that lamp as Czech. Attribution exactly is more difficult as the only drawings I know are pp 109-11 of Truitt Vol 2. Some very similar to your link bu...
  2. I thought Skrdlovice or ZBS but can’t find any links.
  3. Craig is leaving this subject be at present! Unless there are updates I haven’t heard!
  4. I think the two can be very tentatively linked by the “flames” which rise from the base of the mould, separated by the spirals. All very La Tène to me.
  5. Happy New Year Kevin!
  6. Love it!
  7. I am continually surprised by the victorian-ness of some 1920s stuff. I know what you mean about this one. I *think* it fits with 1920s production better than 1880s/90s. If you have a look at the c...
  8. Thanks for the ongoing collections/groupings. They’re great. I have been offline for a while concentrating on another love - family history - and leaving glass to Instagram.
  9. Thanks Fran.
  10. Not sure without looking at the bases for marks.
  11. Very desirable! As are most of your posts! :-)
  12. I don’t know about snakeheads being used with confidence to ID glass. You do pick up differences between both the heads and the ends of the trails. This gold quilted glass has cropped up before. ...
  13. Very nice!
  14. These long necks are seen on some Welz pieces and only seem to fit one collar.
  15. Love them all! Do show more!
  16. Not at all common. Love them.
  17. I think Kralik but don’t know 100%.
  18. Welz vote here as well but it is nice to have a second in a recognised décor. The quilting and the rigaree do it 98% for me.
  19. Thanks, all.
  20. Welz? Looks a possibility but others have more knowledge on these matters!
  21. Would love to see it - please post a link. Somewhere between Kralik and Rindskopf but could be anything! Your shape might clinch it!
  22. Could be French as well.
  23. Love this, Alan.
  24. I like "bottom-up spatter" but that's just me. Other people prefer "confetti".
  25. Here's that post. This looks more familiar from patterns in the books mentioned - I will look. https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/187770-josef-hoffman-wiener-werkstatte-michae
  26. I am hoping that the shape might ring a bell!
  27. This is my pressed mark piece https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/110414-id-request-satin-glass-vase--pressed-ma
  28. Great piece!
  29. I agree, attribution is difficult atm but definitely between Czech/Bohemian and UK makers with a lean to the former from me.
  30. Dunno but nice find.
  31. These things can be very hurtful and you must remember that 95% of the people in this world aren't like that.
  32. Sorry to hear that you fell foul of a troll.
  33. 100% Czech/Bohemian.
  34. Love the enamelling. One that César would love! Dunno about maker. Open field?
  35. :-) Love it.
  36. This is a really nice shape and I notice a fleck of another colour - happens too often in Welz to be an accident??
  37. These are NICE!
  38. Sorry, 20thcenturyglass has nothing for "pulled glass".
  39. Thanks, for both comments.
  40. Thank you, Phil. I am sorry you got distracted! ;-) I look at your postings with envy very often - more often than I admit!
  41. Really psychedelic, as you write.
  42. Ceska Lipa region production according to: http://rover.rajce.idnes.cz/Tango_sklo One pattern is there exactly as here.
  43. The plates represent production ca. 1900.
  44. The handle is lumpen but it's still nice looking. I am always wary of the new! However, if we never take a punt on something, we will never learn or have the hope of discovering the really rare! ...
  45. I wonder what's with that funny lip at the rim?
  46. Do you think they could have taken candles!?
  47. A very nice Welz shape and decor.
  48. Love em.
  49. Haha. I had the same thought as Jericho!
  50. Absolutely, Peggy.
