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. What a beautiful pair, Phil - thanks for sharing them! :)
  2. Thanks so much, kivatinitz! :)
  3. Beautiful! A lovely one, Malkey, and your photos are stunning as usual, and show off the texture of the vase very well. :)
  4. Bambus, thank you - I am glad you like it!
  5. This is just a beauty - what a pleasure it must be to have it in your collection! When I do see this unusual decor, it is often incorrectly attributed to Rindskopf, and it is so nice to see it correct...
  6. Thank you, sklo! It is a very 'soft' decor, isn't it? :)
  7. Thank you, Kevin! CW is such a great resource for helping with ID's!
  8. Thanks so much, Maley! I am glad you like it! :)
  9. On Loetz.com they list Metallgelb under Yellows; it means 'metallic yellow', so I think this may refer to the glass color and not the golden finish, but I could easily be wrong. Either way, the finish...
  10. This is such a beauty, Malkey. What a lovely vase! And your pictures of it are beautiful, too - you have such a way with lighting and setting! :)
  11. Sammyz, what a pretty one! I have a vase in another shape that looks a lot like yours does, but I thought it was Diana Ciselé. Mine does have the really bright golden iridescence, though. Is Diana Cis...
  12. Thanks so much, Craig. I agree that it has a very strong Rindskopf vibe to me, too! I was very happy to be able to add this decor to my Rindskopf collection. :)
  13. IronLace, this is just such a gorgeous piece. The shape and the decor are perfect together and just lovely. I am so glad you were able to add this to your collection!
  14. I would consider Legras amberina for the last vase in the diamond optic pattern. If you google 'Legras amberina' you can see some examples that are not too far off from this one...
  15. cameoboy, I haven't seen that before - I'll have to keep an eye out for one.
  16. Thanks, IronLace - what a terrific description! :)
  17. Thank you, sklo - I am always happy to hear when post is helpful. I have learned so much here over the years! :)
  18. Oh, I love this one - what a wonderful form and color!
  19. What beautiful pictures, IronLace - your glass looks so lovely with the violets in their natural home! :)
  20. I love the idea that these could be ice cream bowls, sklo - what fun they'd be to eat out of! :)
  21. Wonderful vase, Phil - your patience really did pay off! :)
  22. Thanks so much, Malkey! :)
  23. Thanks so much, Wow; I am so glad to hear that. And thanks for reminding me about Jericho's post, too - that is an amazing Kralik! :)
  24. Thank you Alain & sklo; yes, a pity to lose, but the shipping from the UK was very expensive, and I try to be careful with my spending. I still wanted to share the wonderful painting, though! :)
  25. Thanks so much, Malkey! :)
  26. Thanks, sklo! This is actually a bit of a variation of their snakeskin decor; it has 'bumps' going vertically up the vase (some people call it 'zipper'.) I have another vase that is a more traditional...
  27. A lovely pair, and terrific history piece - thanks for sharing it!
  28. Very interesting! I have never seen this shape before in Welz, either - always great to have a pair, too! :)
  29. Thank you, sklo! I do like these three together. :)
  30. Beautiful vase and pictures, Malkey! Great to see this post from you, too! :)
  31. Thanks so much, Deb! :)
  32. Thank you, Sammyz - I am glad you think so! :)
  33. Wow - a beauty indeed! Just gorgeous, Sammy!
  34. I love this square shape!! As always, Welz is full of surprises!
  35. This is absolutely incredible, Kai. The enameling is so fine and beautiful - how neat to have both a four and a five footed version!
  36. Yay! Another hex vase for your collection! Love the colors! I do keep an eye out for these for you, Peggy! :)
  37. Wonderful to see these all together, Jericho. You have an amazing collection!
  38. Malkey, thank you! Glad you like it! :)
  39. Thanks so much, Sammyz! :)
  40. Great to hear from you, Malkey! Love your photos, especially the night scene and your bunny! :)
  41. Thank you, Peggy! It almost appears to glow in the right light! :)
  42. Very pretty, sklo - I really like how the glass transitions from green to white (frosted clear) - it is the perfect background for a flower!
  43. Wow, Alan, that really is a monumental size! What a beautiful vase - congratulations on adding it to your collection!
  44. Thanks so much, Karen! :)
  45. Thanks so much, kivatinitz! I really enjoyed seeing your pieces, too! I love birds as a subject, as well! :)
  46. Thank you, kivatinitz!
  47. Wow, Peggy, you usually see these in solid colors, and it is great to see it in a spatter. Very nice!
  48. Good for you, Peggy - so glad you were able to get this lovely pair!
  49. Yes, I agree that it Legras. They are so often mis-identified as being Bohemian (or Murano!) I have a similar decor posted here in an egg shape. They made SO many great shapes, in so many different sp...
  50. Thank you, Scott - I am so glad you like it!
