It all started whenI have been collecting Bohemian glass, mostly Rindskopf, Kralik and Loetz, for well over twenty years now. I find it so intriguing and beautiful. It all started when I saw (and then purchased) my first piece of Loetz - a beautiful little double gourd vase. I always love to learn more from others, and to share in the joy of our latest finds!

  1. What a terrific piece! I have never seen Bambus on a pitcher before, and I think that the gray with the greens and blues is a lovely combination. :)
  2. IVAN49, I agree that this was probably an expensive piece when it was made. Thanks!
  3. Thank you, Judy! :)
  4. Peggy, I really like what you said about the skills needed to make this piece. I love the simple overall shape, but complexity of the decor.
  5. Thanks so much Judy! :)
  6. Very interesting - thank you so much for writing this and showing your wonderful examples!
  7. Wow - what rich colors on this variety - beautiful!
  8. Marin, thanks so much! I hope your tulips do well for you! I can't grow them here unless they are in a protected pot, because they are candy to our local deer - I am jealous you can grow them! Good l...
  9. Thank you ho2cultcha - nice to see you again! :)
  10. Happy spring to you too, kivatinitz!
  11. Thanks so much Scott!
  12. Thank you slpprs, you are so kind! :)
  13. Thank you jscotto! :)
  14. Thank you, Peggy! I like your thoughts on the tulips...I thought about recent hybrids and size as well. But then I remembered the big blowsy dutch tulips seen in old paintings. These pink tulips are a...
  15. Karen, that is so nice to hear - thanks so much! :)
  16. Hi Penny, thank you so much! Yes, it is quite a good size - and really heavy! I really had a challenge getting the tulips in - it was like a puzzle! :)
  17. Thanks so much Kevin - it is a classic shape, and one I have wanted for a long time. :)
  18. The gloss, the pink, the blue rim - I just love it!! And as I mentioned on FB, I think the lamp base looks great with it. It is simple, and lets the shade take center stage. :)
  19. This is a lovely example, Bambus.
  20. Oooh - I have never noticed the canes like that before. So interesting that they are yellow on the interior. It never occurred to me that this was how they made the decor - thanks for teaching me some...
  21. Terrific example of moss agate! I had to laugh at your 'bilious secretion' comment - I have to agree it is a great description! ;)
  22. Hi Marin, I have one of these, and I actually think it is an English Stourbridge piece by either Richardson or Walsh Walsh. It is in their Horse Chestnut leaf pattern. If you ping the glass, it should...
  23. Thanks Jericho - I am glad you think so! I love these pieces with ball feet. :)
  24. They look older to me, and are a lovely pair - those other dealers missed out and you had a great find that morning! :)
  25. Thanks so much kivatinitz!
  26. Marin, that is so very kind of you to say - thank you!
  27. Thank you Penny; I wanted to show the design off - I am glad you like it! :)
  28. Thank you Peggy - I agree! :)
  29. Thanks Alfie21 - I am glad you like it! It does look like it could be a sea creature of sorts! :)
  30. Thanks so much Sean! :)
  31. Oh, it looks like it is covered in sugar sprinkles!! It would look wonderful filled with purple sweet peas or pansies - such a lovely little vase! :)
  32. Peggy, this is just the epitome of Kralk's Art Deco work! Congratulations!! :)
  33. Thank you for posting about WMF; I am not really familiar with this decor of theirs, and have been learning a lot from your posts.
  34. I was following this on facebook - what a shocking, amazing, wonderful find!! I mean one in a million. Congratulations!! :)
  35. Oh, I just love the sky blue! I enjoy collecting in different shapes and sizes, too. I have a few of these in different sizes, but not this color! This was a very popular shape that Loetz used for man...
  36. The colors of this vase are so delicate - 'Aurora' is a perfect name. The metalwork really helps to set it off, too - what a lovely piece!!
  37. Beautiful!!
  38. Happy birthday Marin! This vase is in beautiful condition - and has such goth colors! It is really different, and I like it! :)
  39. Great images for comparison - thank you!

  41. Thank you kivatinitz - I am glad you like it!
  42. Thanks so much Kevin! :)
  43. Thank you for your discussion of Marie Kirschner. I have been thinking about her lately, and studying her designs. I agree that she was, and still is, in my opinion, undervalued as a designer. Your va...
