  1. Oh bother still no sign of your warrior. I do think that perhaps he is Greek rather than Roman. Those who know do please enlighten me.
  2. Thank you. I enjoy them.
  3. I have not seen clear ones, I will look forward to seeing them.
  4. No luck so far but I have a few more things to check.
  5. I will check my catalogues and see if I can find him. If the scale works for one of your letter openers that would be a quick fix. If not then you would need to make one. That will be much easier when...
  6. Yes, the original hangs in the A G O.
  7. Dear VintageVern, I found the copy to which you refer. The original painting by Paul Peel on which Erjy Putanu based his copy was done in 1890. Thanks to google images you can easily see both...
  8. I think Bill has it. Even if there is only one front leg, could the split pin still not clasp to it? What a lovely thing it is. Thank you for sharing your find.
  9. I was gifted one in London as a little girl. I have it still. I think it started my interest in Egyptology. ;o) Thank you for sharing this find. It brought back all sorts of terrific memories.
  10. Fabulous lamp. What a perfect base. I would love to have one to use with so many much loved single shades in my collection. Gary, that sir, is a fabulous find. Enjoy your new treasure.
  11. It is so exciting to see another beautiful shade with both PG and PN numbers. Thank you for the work you so kindly share.
  12. The colours are wonderful. These are completely new to me. Thank you for sharing them here.
  13. Lychee?
  14. Oh boy. I just read that only 300 copies were printed. ;o(
  15. Thank you Brian. I will be looking for a copy now.
  16. Wonderful. Thank you for this interesting post. I hope you enjoy making the tail for your cat.
  17. Thank you for sharing your beautiful shade and the great research too, Brian. This has been a very informative post. Quittenbaum!! Thank you. I mistakenly thought that Musterbuch was either a refere...
  18. Yes, I too would not have imagined feeling the way I do about the duck. The movement, colour and that dear bill. Treasure! Thank you for sharing your finds.
  19. Thank you for this post Karen. It really is delightful to see and learn about this glass.
  20. Inky I was saving background patterns to see if I could find a way to help with attribution on a pair of shades, I am thinking too Baccarat because of the background.
  21. Thank you. One look and I tasted the Lemonade of childhood stands.
  22. Thank you vintagelamp. I am thrilled to have them in my collection.
  23. Thank you vintagelamp and Aura
  24. Thank you Glassie. Any thoughts?
  25. Thank you Phil. I am really wanting to hear or see how they were offered for sale. Do you know if there are paper patterns for companies other than Loetz? Does anyone share shapes for Kralik et al? P...
  26. My thinking is that the shades were made 1910 1920s but I am saying that based only on the glass and the type of glass beads used. Thank you for your kind remarks. If anyone does come across informat...
  27. Yes they do make lamp wire and even plugs that look like the lovely stuff that was used 1910. Most Lamp supply places carry it.
  28. These are not difficult to rewire. It is a good idea to rewire the lamp even though it seems to work properly. 'Nuff said. I hope you don't mind the tip.
  29. I'm glad you do. I certainly enjoyed seeing the work you posted recently, Manikin
  30. Thank you Caperkid and Kevin. It is a great summer here. The weather.... not so much but very good as far as my collection goes. :O)
  31. Thank you, sir. Do you know anything about them? Have you seen them offered for sale with a fixture? Thank you too to Karenoke and Starrynight
  32. Thank you,Johann. That is very kind.
  33. Wonderful! What a great post. Thank you for sharing.
  34. Lovely base. I think though that the shade has been replaced and that the original would have been carved from stone and not made of glass.
  35. I added what I hope is a better image of PG 2/187. It shows the iridescence far more than the first one. The third image is the shade I mentioned in my post as the one I first posted here on CW. The l...
  36. It also appears that the glass panels in the shade are of different types. That would indicate that they are not all original.
  37. You didn't mention size so I may be way off here but I am wondering if they were not used on a pair of double armed wall sconces. The knight's helmet and banner shown on the side was often used on sco...
  38. hello, Your shades are replacements which were widely available in the 90s and more recently. I believe they may have been made by Vianne. Is the tint on the edge a pale amber colour? I think if...
  39. Congratulations! Thank you for sharing your fabulous piece and information here.
  40. Thank you so much LoetzDance. I am just thrilled and so grateful to the kind people who share their knowledge and their time here on CW,, and years ago the TIAS art glass group. Sincerely,...
  41. Wonderful! That is the page that prompted me to post the shades as Loetz. I just needed to check here to be sure they are indeed PG 2/187. Thank you Sammyz, Alan and Malkey. Thank you too for the lov...
  42. Thank you Warren, for your work.
  43. I love this calla lily shape. Or would it be called Jack in the pulpit? A rose by any other name...... They are lovely! I have a holder like the one you show on the cranberry. I too would like to have...
  44. How exciting. It is great to have a mystery solved and CW leads one right back to see the magic. Thank you both.
  45. Thank you very much Mount Washington they are then. ;o) They are lovely. Good of you to take the time to help Jim. I appreciate it. Sincerely, Lisa
  46. Dear Victorian Rosebowls & Scott, Thank you very much for your comments. I appreciate your taking the time to look at the salts and then to add your information. I am well out of my depth here ...
  47. Dear Peggy, The shape and the painting both say Czech to me as to age, that is not as easy. The painting was done from about 1910 into the 30s on shades and this shape too was used in the 20s 30s a...
  48. What fun. Such a departure from the MOP sober pieces. I really like this one, and if I had just read a description I wouldn't have imagined it would make me feel as it does. Thank you for sharing! Si...
  49. Wonderful! I am so pleased for you. I love early bird gets gold stories. ;o)
  50. It is swellegant. I can see why you had to have it follow you home. It would be irresistible. Does it sing in the sunshine as Brian suggested? Thank you for sharing it here. Sincerely, Lisa
