I have been collecting Bohemian glass, mostly Rindskopf, Loetz, and Heckert, for well over twenty years now. I also collect old Baccarat enameled opaline pieces. I fI have been collecting Bohemian glass, mostly Rindskopf, Loetz, and Heckert, for well over twenty years now. I also collect old Baccarat enameled opaline pieces. I find glass 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! (Read more)

  1. Ales, did you see the cobalt threaded vase on Ebay right now? Same decor as the red one; sadly it has a small chip, but if you would like to see it for a shape study, search 'Czech Signed COBALT BLUE ...
  2. Yes, I agree it isn't Loetz. They are a beautiful pair though!
  3. Oh my goodness, this is just gorgeous! I love cyclamen, and have never seen one on a vase like this. It is so elegant, especially with the matte finish. I love it!
  4. I really like the decor on the second vase; it is very subtle and elegant. It reminds me of some of the late Loetz pieces, too!
  5. I love the soft iridescence on this piece! It has such an Art Deco vibe. Beautiful!
  6. How interesting! It looks like it starts as almost a honeycomb decor on the base, and then becomes the finer stripes on the body. Very nice!
  7. I love it, Marin! A beautiful example. And definitely Welz. SunshineGlass, sadly, I know about the spreading of misinformation about Welz being Harrach….and actually, quite a few other maker’s work is...
  8. kivatinitz, thanks so much; I agree!
  9. Thanks so much Phil, I appreciate it! :)
  10. Thanks for your comments, Ales and Loetzforever. I am always looking for more information on Rindskopf, and hope some new material comes to light.
  11. What a lovely comment; thank you, kivatinitz!
  12. What a wonderful post! I love your glass collection of blues, and the connection you made to the Bower bird. I had heard of them, but never knew what their nests look like or what they like to collect...
  13. And yes, as for sizes, I often see the decors in groups of three sizes: around 6", around 8-9" and around 12-13". They do vary a bit, but in general this seems to apply.
  14. Hi Ales, well, I believe there is evidence of it. I have a collection of over 1,200 Rindskopf images that I have been collecting and filing by decor for years; it is very helpful to me in identifying ...
  15. Thanks so much, Peggy! :)
  16. Lovely Marin; the pink against the green is just such a nice combination. :)
  17. This is such a pretty decor, and it looks wonderful on the pot. The trim is lovely, too!
  18. Wonderful! It is great to have dates with all the animals - thank you!
  19. Kivatinitz, it was our very first time away from home since March 2020, and we wanted to be safe by not flying and not going too far from home - we really did enjoy the beach - and the unexpected Loet...
  20. Thanks so much Marin; I felt very lucky that day! :)
  21. Thank you, Ales!
  22. Thanks so much Peggy! It is an understated decor. I usually just do a quick scan of the shelves for glass when I am in an antique store, and this one just popped out at me! There are very few antique ...
  23. Beautiful! I love it in this golden color.
  24. I love the feet and decoration on this one Marin!
  25. Ooooo - wonderful!!
  26. These are a wonderful trio, Peggy. This is a great post showing how different a decor can look, and I agree that Welz did this quite a bit - more than other makers in my opinion.
  27. Wonderful information - I love these later pieces.
  28. These are wonderful examples, Ales!
  29. I really appreciate your posts on various aspects of Loetz designs and the designers; it is wonderful information, and really is helpful to see photos of the accompanying pieces- thank you!
  30. What a wonderful pair, Penny! It is so interesting that they are transparent; I am sure that adds an extra bit of something special to them. They are wonderful!
  31. Thank you Penny! :)
  32. Thank you for the lovely compliment Peggy! :)
  33. Thanks so much Wow22!
  34. Kivatinitz, that is so kind of you - thank you! :)
  35. Thank you LoetzForever, I appreciate hearing that.
  36. Thanks so much Marin, I am so glad you like it!
  37. Hi Mike, I agree - almost like some kind of sea creature, to me! :)
  38. Thanks so much, Warren - I appreciate knowing that! :)
  39. Thanks so much Scott, I appreciate it!
  40. Thanks, Sammyz - me too! It's a good example; odd seeing two in such a short period of time!
  41. Very nice, IronLace! The boots are so much less common, too!
  42. You have a wonderful collection of these shells! Thanks for sharing them!
  43. 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. :)
  44. IVAN49, I agree that this was probably an expensive piece when it was made. Thanks!
  45. Thank you, Judy! :)
  46. 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.
  47. Thanks so much Judy! :)
  48. Very interesting - thank you so much for writing this and showing your wonderful examples!
  49. Wow - what rich colors on this variety - beautiful!
  50. 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...
