San Francisco Bay Area, California

I have been collecting Bohemian glass, mostly Rindskopf, Kralik and Loetz, for over fourteen years. I find it so intriguing and beautiful. It all started when I saw I have been collecting Bohemian glass, mostly Rindskopf, Kralik and Loetz, for over fourteen years. 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. David, I have an example in the same decor; thanks for your thoughts on Hoffmann in relation to this design. https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/211472-enameled-cobalt-blue-loetz-vase-pniii-35
  2. Great comparison - thank you!
  3. Wonderful! Amazing that the store had these great examples. I think you know that I love the burnt mica decor, too! :)
  4. Very. nice! I have always liked this color way by Kralik.
  5. Ooooo...I love the applied leaves/feet over the three balls, and I have never seen one in this style with a patterned decor before. Very nice!
  6. And a happy one to you, Kevin!! :)
  7. Thank you, Inky - And I looove marzipan! :)
  8. Oh Inky - now I see the scale of it against all the others - I knew it was big, but - wow! The gilt flower is gorgeous, as is the mount. It is lovely with your other pieces! :)
  9. Oh Phil, I don't usually use the word 'swoon', but when I saw this vase - that's what came right to my mind!! It is gorgeous! The soft matte color with exquisite enamel work - really this one is a mus...
  10. Thanks so much, Lesley! :)
  11. Fantastic research, Craig - and great questions from other forum members, too! I am still trying to absorb it all!
  12. Hi Ivonne, what a lovely piece! I have had to re-write posts before as well, so now I try to write them on my desk top and save them, then I can just copy my text into my post. Just an idea that may h...
  13. Thank you so much Malkey - 'gembaroonie' made me smile quite a few times today! I always appreciate your comments! :)
  14. Thank you, larksel - I have admired your website and beautiful collection before! I really appreciate you pointing me to your example; it is lovely and nice to see another in the same shape. :)
  15. Thanks so much, Sammy!
  16. Hi Phil, I am so glad you like it! Their enameling really is so beautiful. I am looking forward to seeing your new piece! :)
  17. Beautiful photos, IronLace. I love what you did with your coffee table! All the best wishes to you in your new home! :)
  18. Yes, I have some of those, too. I think they must have worn off due to age...
  19. Hi Ivonne, sure! Riedel numbered their pieces in a similar way to Harrach, but they often used the letters C, U B and I think maybe E in front of their numbers; the numbers were also often three digit...
  20. Thank you, sklo! It is like a little jewel, and I just put it up in my bedroom on a small shelf where I keep my little 'special' pieces. :)
  21. Thanks so much, Inky! You are so sweet to say that.
  22. What a beauty, Malkey! I love this one - the dandelions are wonderful. It is really nice to see how the metal rim echos the leaves on the vase, too.
  23. This one is such a vibrant green, Peggy! So fresh - I love it!
  24. What a beautiful and delicate decor. It really does have a Loetz-like feel. The delicacy of it, and the perfectly ground pontil really point that way for me....
  25. This is really a beautiful decor, Craig.
  26. What a beautiful vase, Kai. Thank you for sharing it!!
  27. Stunning!! It all looks right to me for being Leveille/Rouseau. I saw this example, too, which has some similar colors to your vase. http://art-du-xxeme.com/boutique/leveille-rousseau-art-nouveau/ (Bu...
  28. I agree with Wow22, Craig - I have always thought your method of looking at shapes was very sound, and I appreciate you showing how angles can really change how we perceive a form.
  29. Thanks so much Craig! I love your enthusiasm, and will keep my eyes open for that third piece! :)
  30. Thank you, EZa!
  31. Malkey, thanks so much! I really appreciate it! :)
  32. Thanks so much, Phil. Don't you find this happens with collecting sometimes? You are looking and looking for a decor, and then suddenly - there they are. It doesn't happen often of course, but when it...
  33. You know I’ll be keeping my eyes open for you! :)
  34. Hi Bobbysock, I would go to Loetz.com to look at the various decors that Loetz made, so you can start to familiarize yourself with both shapes and finishes. They also have a good section on how to ide...
  35. Great shape and colors on this one!
  36. Thanks Bambus; good to know!
  37. Hi Bobbsock312 - no problem! It is hard to tell if there are comments since the email feature doesn't work anymore...the shape of your vase is called a double gourd vase, and it was popular in the Art...
  38. Sammyz, you once bought a piece of glass from me; can I contact you via your email to send you the Heckert images? Let me know. :)
  39. Thank you, sklo! It is very silky, and I agree with your comment about balance; I like that the spatter is asymmetrical and not all over the entire body.
  40. Hi Sammyz, yes, I do. I'd be happy to email copies to you if you'd like.
  41. Thanks so much, Malkey! I am so glad you like it! :)
  42. Hi sklo, thank you very much! They are quite different, aren't they? I love to compare decors on the same shape! :)
  43. The color of your vase is really special; I love the silvery blue. And the silver overlay is a bit different from what is usually seen, too (a daisy) - I love it!
  44. Thanks Craig! I am glad you like it; I am really drawn to vases with blue, but they are a bit less common. I agree - this is a very pretty shade. :)
  45. Thank you, Wow22; I am glad you think so! :)
  46. Hi bambus, yes it is - I just checked, and it glows green very brightly. Oddly, it didn't occur to me to check this earlier; it doesn't look to the naked eye like it would be, as some vases do.
  47. Thanks, Justanovice - I appreciate it! :)
  48. Thank you Phil! I am so glad you like it. The 4th picture isn't mine though - it is of a piece in Passau. :)
  49. Alan, I am so very sorry to hear about the tough time you are going through, and the loss of your brother and sister. My thoughts are with you and your wife. It was brave of you to write this post, an...
  50. They do look very nice in your sideboard; I really like to see all of those rich colors catching the light. Lovely!
