My husband and I have been collecting art glass for many years. We probably have not met a piece of art glass that we didn't like. Our interests range from Loetz & My husband and I have been collecting art glass for many years. We probably have not met a piece of art glass that we didn't like. Our interests range from Loetz & Bohemian glass to works from Studio artists such as Lotton, Satava, etc. In 2012, when Eddy Scheppers decided to sell the website he had created, Loetz.com, Tony Ellery and I purchased it to ensure that collectors from around the world would continue to have access to this amazing site. We also wanted to preserve the history of this glass and dedicate our time doing Loetz research to provide updates and corrections based on archival resources. We welcome any large size photos of Loetz examples that you would like to submit to: info@loetz.com (Read more)

  1. Ales, I found the PN for your vase! PN II-1967 matches the shape and size of your vase and documents "Dekor 624" in the production notes. The production notes also confirm your thoughts about your T...
  2. Really nice example of Astglas but it is difficult to appreciate the glass with your name watermarked through it.
  3. Great example of this decor. Congratulations! I love seeing this decor in this shape with the decor mentioned in the production notes! 4 stars! This is also the first example of this decor with a "LA...
  4. We can't be certain that this example is Loetz. There were several other glass producers who used this shape including Murano. The sea blue colors and white opal ground are also not typical of Loetz....
  5. What a beautiful example of this decor. Thank you for sharing it here.
  6. This vase is indeed Loetz candia glatt. In certain decors Loetz candia can appear to have a golden tint but this is due to the exterior iridescent applications. Just as often it is clear as is ind...
  7. Great detective work on this mark, Ales!
  8. I think it is trying to resemble a Rindskopf but the deep red ground and threading on the bottom makes me think it could be newer. The shape as well as your mention that it is a bit heavy also leads ...
  9. Lovely Merkur example! As Ales mentioned, your Astglass is documented in PN II-739 as your vase matches the size and decor name, "Orange Astglass", in the production notes. Your Merkur matches the s...
  10. I would add and Ales can confirm that the brown vases also have a unique shimmer to them. It reminds me of the new paint that they are using on black cars now. It's like a dusting of sparkles.
  11. Thanks, Kai, for your kind words and amazing photo library. We couldn't do this work without you!
  12. Jericho, I thought this would bring a smile! Glad I could make your day! Enjoy! Deb
  13. Congratulations on acquiring such a rare and wonderful piece Harrach. Of course, all of the credit goes to you, my dear friend, for being such a patient and learned researcher of Bohemian art glass. K...
  14. And now we know the name of this Loetz decor - Ausf 220 aka Korbgeflecht!! https://www.loetz.com/101-news/207-another-new-decor-ausf-220-aka-korbgeflecht-or-basket-weave
  15. And now we know the name of this Loetz decor - Ausf 220 aka Korbgeflecht https://www.loetz.com/101-news/207-another-new-decor-ausf-220-aka-korbgeflecht-or-basket-weave
  16. Now, for the rest of the story...the 3rd vase shown is PN II-963 which also documents this decor as PG 3/492!
  17. Wow! What a beauty! Congrats.
  18. What a great find, Warren. I also loved seeing the paper pattern that matches this piece. Wonderful!
  19. I love this piece. Loetz figurals are very rare and even though this one was heavily damaged, it is well worth preserving and adding to any Loetz collection. As to why this piece is not currently sho...
  20. Very cool!
  21. The assignment of these two decors has been in question for some time. Currently, there are only two sources where either the Persica or Pavonia decors are mentioned: Ricke 1 pg 68 & 352 and Band 2, ...
  22. Volkmar, A great example of the Syrius decor. Congratulations on acquiring such a fine example. Thank you also for sharing some of the history of this decor. The "Heliotrope" description also explain...
  23. Volkmar, I agree with you. I think "Silveria" might be the correct name for these examples. Clearly, they are very special and different from the :"origianl" Texas decor as we know it. Good Sleuthing!...
  24. Great sluething, Warren! Nice discovery of another new Loetz decor
  25. Beautiful example s and I agree with your assessment about the color. I also have the same example in Ausf 113.
  26. Congratulations, Volkmar, on adding such a rare and beautiful example of Poshinger to your collection.
  27. This piece would go great sitting on top of the Cooper Hewitt Museum's Adolf Loos "Elephant leg" table with the Loetz tile inserts. (or my table, if you want to send it to me! LOL) https://www.artsy.n...
  28. Love, love, love this vase, Warren. The elephant metal holder is also most interesting. Congratulations!
  29. Very cool! Thanks for sharing these.
  30. Very nice!
  31. Beautiful! Congratulations on such a nice and rare addition to your collection.
  32. Very nice. You are doing a great job of researching these Loetz shade examples. You are correct that this is a Titania-type decor. The "Gre" referenced in the production notes indicates "Titania Gr...
  33. Volkmar, I have Ploils' book and enjoyed seeing your photos of the signature and actual vase being offered at Dr Fischers. While this example, "Vase orangeopal with hyalith foot", is surely the missi...
  34. Very nice!
  35. Are rare piece indeed! Very nice.
  36. What a great Arcadia collection. I am especially fond of this decor and also like that you have two examples of DEK 1/12.
  37. This is a very special piece. Congratulations on acquiring such a magnificent example of Loetz!
  38. This vase in PN I-8038 was produced in 1899.
  39. Both beautiful examples of Rubin Matte Iris DEK IV-714. You are right, DEK IV/106 looks very similar. There is only one small variance between the two decors which is why it takes hours and potential...
  40. Love this one and especially the story because the same thing happened to me only I had to wait 3 years for the plate to finally show up!
  41. Love it and definitely worth the persistence. Congrats
  42. This is one of my favorite vases! I also love that it has the rare Paris Expo signature engraved on it. It is the only documented Russian Green PG 8058 (PN II-189) that I have ever seen. Very, very n...
  43. Definitely Loetz and I think you are right on the shape being II-4473. The drawing of the leaf-green "feather" decoration looks different but maybe they were trying to show a left and right side of on...
  44. Lisa, I see you are having fun with your new book! Way to go Ms Loetz researcher.
  45. I can understand why you are in Loetz heaven! Wow!
  46. Love this one!
  47. Great example and, you are right, Loetz amethyst is rather rare. Nice1
  48. There is also a book that you can purchase entitled: "Josephine Glassworks (Art Nouveau - Art Deco - Modern) 1900- 1950" published by the Glasmueum Passau.
  49. Dark or light, amethyst was never used by Loetz in their PG's. Regarding the shape, I wish CW would let us post photos in our replies. I have a collage of photos showing 6 different examples exhibit...
  50. Jospehinenhutte! Here are several examples of Loetz Pg 7624 to compare: http://www.loetz.com/decors-a-z/phaenomen-genres/phaenomen-genres/pg-7624 Note that there is little to no spacing between t...
