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. Kai, your research into early Loetz has expanded the known Loetz decors dramatically; I am with Kevin (vetraio) wholeheartedly - thank you!!
  2. Wonderful vases, Kai! The cut faceting on the second vase is amazing, as are the inclusions. Thanks for posting these!
  3. Hi Mac, I completely understand! I have become much more focused and selective in my collecting, too. I also need to sell some of my other pieces to make more room. I have seen pictures of your home, ...
  4. Mac, it is great to see you here again! Your new vase is a really wonderful example of cephalonia. The patina at the neck is really nice. And showing it off with your new serpent stand is brilliant - ...
  5. It is a beauty Craig, and looks wonderful in your collection, I love the last photo showing the sizes - it really is huge! :)
  6. Thanks, Sammyz - I'll have to look for some examples of that! :)
  7. Thanks Alan - I am sure you'll have your own soon, too! :)
  8. Thank you, Sammyz! :)
  9. I'm always happy to help, Alan! :)
  10. Alan, Craig has an entire article on this decor on his website (kralik-glass.com) which is very interesting...
  11. I believe it is Welz, in their 'maze' decor. I always think of brains when I see it! ;) I really like it - great shape and iridescence.
  12. I really like this one, IronLace. The decor is really interesting and looks beautiful on this shape. I think the handles are great, too!
  13. I believe it is Bohemian, Fran. No idea as to a maker, but such a nice pink! :)
  14. Peggy, is the vase on the right in image 4 cadmium glass lined, too?
  15. Peggy, I am so sorry about your broken heart vase; it has happened to all of us, and always feels terrible. :( But I have to say that your brilliant blue vase is really, really lovely! I love its vibr...
  16. Thank you Peggy! I think we both often tend to lean that way! :)
  17. Nice handles! It feels Welz-y to me, too.
  18. I agree with Ian - these all look terrific together!
  19. Thanks so much, Malkey - it reminds me of that, too! :)
  20. Love the shape on this one, Alan! A beautiful vase, and I love the tadpoles, too! :)
  21. What a terrific piece! It is so interesting to see the close up - the detail of the etching is fascinating. What a great piece to add to your collection, Warren!
  22. Very Pretty, Peggy! I like this one very much - especially due to the colors, I think. :)
  23. Phil, when you go in, you go in deep!! What a terrific piece of Harrach! The salamander legs are amazing! (I love salamanders...) and the oak foliage with them is superbly done. And this one has so li...
  24. I my goodness - I can't believe the story of how it finally came into your hands! It is a miracle it wasn't smashed, and I am so glad you were able to fix the legs. It is a really neat decor, and I am...
  25. Thank you, Peggy. I do believe this piece to be Welz now. Good to know about the feet shape! :)
  26. Thank you, skivatinitz - I appreciate it, and glad you like the vase. :)
  27. Thank you very much, skivatinitz! :)
  28. Hi Steve, that's great - I'll look into your information - thanks so much! I thought you might have some ideas! :)
  29. Fran, thank you! I am glad you think so! :)
  30. inky, thanks so much! :)
  31. Thank you!
  32. Sure thing! I believe the article just shows some examples of Harrach tango, and not all of the items they made.
  33. The shape of this one is great, too! Really a nice piece all around, Ian.
  34. Peggy, thank you; having 'movement' is a perfect description for it! :)
  35. Thanks Sammyz - I am glad you like it!
  36. How fun! I have never seen any Kraliks in this beautiful shade of green - another great find, sklo! :)
  37. Peggy, Brian Severn is, as you may know, very knowledgeable about Harrach, and he wrote an article about Harrach Tango glass. I thought you may like to read it. Here is a link to it: http://www.glassc...
  38. Oh, I have just seen this one! What a pretty, pretty piece! The colors are just so cheerful! It does remind me of Welz, as does the molded basket and the twisted handle. This is really lovely!
  39. Neat shape on this one! I have come across this decor on other Welz vases, too, so I agree with you and Peggy's thoughts on this one as well.
  40. I have never heard Burt's name used in such a way Ian, but it made me laugh out loud! And I love the vase, too! :)
  41. Oh my goodness - 17" tall and almost 20lbs?? That is massive! But also what a stunning piece of art glass. Your photo has perfect light for catching the bubbles and shape of the glass. Crack or no cra...
  42. Phil, I love it when information comes at just the right time and you remember a piece that for some reason catches your eye. And I agree - it is so modern looking that it is hard to believe it was ma...
  43. Oh, the colors are so rich! This is like a carved gemstone, Malkey!
  44. What a beautiful vase; the silver overlay and the white flowers are gorgeous together. It is so nice to see it used for the purpose it was meant for! :)
  45. The silver is almost mirror-like! This is a really beautiful combination of colors - just wonderful!
  46. This is a very interesting decor! Out of curiosity, how tall it is? Thanks! :)
  47. Thanks so much Phil! I have always loved this shape, too, and was very lucky to come across one in this color. :)
  48. Nutsabotas6, thank you! :)
  49. Thanks, Warren! I was hoping for your thoughts! :) That is one of the colors Deb and I discussed as a possibility. She said that to her it is a bit of a greenish blue, and I could see that in some of ...
  50. Malkey, thanks so much! I am so glad you like it. It is on our mantle now, and as one walks by, the colors change constantly due to the shape of the vase. It is really a favorite of mine! :)
