Our interests range from Loetz & Bohemian glass from the Art Nouveau period 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 are in the process of updating and adding new information about Loetz and hope to unveil the new Loetz.com site in 2013. We welcome any large size photos of Loetz examples that you would like to submit. My email address is: Deb@MoltenSplendor.com (Read more)

  1. 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 ...
  2. 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...
  3. 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.
  4. Thanks, Kai, for your kind words and amazing photo library. We couldn't do this work without you!
  5. Jericho, I thought this would bring a smile! Glad I could make your day! Enjoy! Deb
  6. 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...
  7. 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

  9. Now, for the rest of the story...the 3rd vase shown is PN II-963 which also documents this decor as PG 3/492!
  10. Wow! What a beauty! Congrats.
  11. What a great find, Warren. I also loved seeing the paper pattern that matches this piece. Wonderful!
  12. 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...
  13. Very cool!
  14. 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, ...
  15. 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...
  16. 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!...
  17. Great sluething, Warren! Nice discovery of another new Loetz decor
  18. Beautiful example s and I agree with your assessment about the color. I also have the same example in Ausf 113.
  19. Congratulations, Volkmar, on adding such a rare and beautiful example of Poshinger to your collection.
  20. 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...
  21. Love, love, love this vase, Warren. The elephant metal holder is also most interesting. Congratulations!
  22. Very cool! Thanks for sharing these.
  23. Very nice!
  24. Beautiful! Congratulations on such a nice and rare addition to your collection.
  25. 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...
  26. 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...
  27. Very nice!
  28. Are rare piece indeed! Very nice.
  29. What a great Arcadia collection. I am especially fond of this decor and also like that you have two examples of DEK 1/12.
  30. This is a very special piece. Congratulations on acquiring such a magnificent example of Loetz!
  31. This vase in PN I-8038 was produced in 1899.
  32. 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...
  33. 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!
  34. Love it and definitely worth the persistence. Congrats
  35. 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...
  36. 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...
  37. Lisa, I see you are having fun with your new book! Way to go Ms Loetz researcher.
  38. I can understand why you are in Loetz heaven! Wow!
  39. Love this one!
  40. Great example and, you are right, Loetz amethyst is rather rare. Nice1
  41. There is also a book that you can purchase entitled: "Josephine Glassworks (Art Nouveau - Art Deco - Modern) 1900- 1950" published by the Glasmueum Passau.
  42. 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...
  43. 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...
  44. Great piece. Love the shape! Very similar to PN 85/5032 but with a tri-fold rim. No question that this would be the diaspora example to a Loetz collection. Congrats!
  45. Ok, I just uploaded photos of your vase and several other examples that meet the description you mentioned to the site. Since we still don't know the name of this decor, I created a new category with...
  46. Love this one! I had it on my radar as well but didn't get back in time to bid on it. Dang!
  47. Thanks, Jericho. This is very helpful. Pictures don't help as much as having the real thing in your hand! Congratulations again on adding such a great piece to your collection.
  48. Beautiful, amazing vase! You also have a good eye for the Tango pieces. Some of the examples similar to yours have been discovered with the oval Czech mark. We show an example with this mark on the s...
  49. This one is really unique. Love it!
  50. Beautiful! Love the new PG discovery too.
