It all started wheI have been collecting Bohemian glass, mostly Rindskopf, Kralik and Loetz, for well over fifteen 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. Thank you Peggy! I was hoping you'd like the art deco aesthetic! :)
  2. Thanks so much Kevin! :)
  3. Thanks so much Warren! I am glad to have this information; I saw the photo you posted. I thought it might be an other PN, but wasn’t sure!
  4. Happy to help! If you google Riedel satin vase, you'll see quite a few examples.
  5. Ivonne, on Loetz.com they have this as an unidentified decor, rather than 'Neu Diaspora': https://loetz.com/decors-a-z/unknown/unknown-series-iii-decors
  6. Very pretty! Riedel often used pale blue satin glass, so they are a possible maker.
  7. What an amazing piece - it almost looks like molten ripples.
  8. Beautiful - the color, shape and finish!
  9. This is one of my favorites, Peggy! The colors ware wonderful together.
  10. Ivonne, I was thinking the same thing! The decor is enamel in the glass, and not actual pockmarks. To me, it doesn’t look related to diaspora. You have a very interesting piece!
  11. Very nice, Ivonne! Thank you for posting close-ups so we can really see the decor! :)
  12. Congrats on the new decor, Peggy! Your photos really do it justice - it is lovely!
  13. What a lovely jar, Ivonne. This is a wonderful piece!
  14. What a special piece! Congratulations, Kai!
  15. Very nice, Ivonne! I love the vibrant color!
  16. Thank you Phil! I think the Murano attribution was also made because the vase was in Italy. But yes, I got it for a very, very good price. I don't spend much on my glass, and prefer the thrill of the ...
  17. Thank you, kivatinitz!
  18. Thanks so much Scott; I am glad you think so!
  19. Thanks Kevin - it was a blue-themed start to the year! :)
  20. Hi Peggy, yes, I have been very lucky with Loetz lately! I have no idea why - I think it just goes in waves somehow - the world works in odd ways. You are so kind; I have been reorganizing my shelves ...
  21. Wonderful! I think this is a particularly nice example of Bacillus, Marin. It really has a lot of great stands and a beautiful color. I am so glad you were able to check this one off your list. I am ...
  22. This shape is really interesting, and the use of the blue with silver on this form really makes it pop. I really like this one!
  23. Thank you so much Deb!
  24. Thanks Sammyz! I do love this shade of blue!
  25. Thank you, Scott!
  26. Thanks so much Marin!
  27. Happy to help!
  28. Hi Wow, thank you! It was made in 1910. :)
  29. It is amazing to think that it made it through two wars, and then on from Italy to the US. I was worried about it during shipment, but it was thankfully very well packaged!
  30. Thank you Kevin! :)
  31. Thanks so much, Ales! I am glad you like it!
  32. Gorgeous, gorgeous colors! I really love these baskets with the striped bases. I was eyeing a lovely pink and green one in a different form, and regret not getting it. I have never seen one in these s...
  33. Peggy, I have been guilty of removing gilding from a Welz vase where I thought it just clashed with the form...it wasn't in great condition either. The vase was so much better for it! But I can see it...
  34. Your collection just amazes me. There is so much diversity in form, but the colors go so well together! These are terrific, Marin!
  35. Wow, this has really beautiful enamel work; it is so interesting to see it has engraving on the other side, too! I do think it is definitely Bohemian and I believe an older piece, perhaps c.1900?
  36. Phil, I am so glad you have found another Knizek! I do know how much you have been searching for them. I love the form of this one, but seeing them together as a trio really makes each one even better...
  37. Beautiful enamel work here, Alan. Penny found a Pohl vase a few months ago in the same color and shape. Yours is lovely!
  38. What a wonderful birthday present, Deb! The colors in your vase are so rich and wonderful - it is a very special piece!
  39. What a lovely pair; the DEK works so well on these square pieces!
  40. Marin, I loved your response to Karen; it was very touching, and I am so glad there are people like you in the world. I wish you a very happy 2021!
  41. Thanks so much Penny! I have such a soft spot for these type of feet! :)
  42. I agree with what Peggy so well. It is a lovely shape; thanks for sharing it!
  43. Merry Christmas Marin!!
  44. Thanks Sammyz, I really appreciate it!
  45. Hi Karen, they did! But it wasn't well known that they did until quite recently. The article on Loetz.com is really informative if you want to take a look. I hope you have a very happy new year! :)
  46. Thanks so much Kevin!
  47. Thank you, jscotto - and to you and yours!
  48. Thank you Peggy! Yes, I love the base! Most I have seen have either a simple round cut or none at all; I really like the three piece design on this one.
  49. Oh this is beautiful. It has such an elegant coloring; I like it more than the typical Kralik snowflake decor. Welcome to CW, and thanks so much for sharing it!
  50. What beautiful reds and greens! I have enjoyed your posts very much, Peggy, and I wish you and your family a very happy 2021. Here’s to better times! :)
