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 vase, Kai. Thank you for sharing it!!
  2. 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...
  3. 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.
  4. Thanks so much Craig! I love your enthusiasm, and will keep my eyes open for that third piece! :)
  5. Thank you, EZa!
  6. Malkey, thanks so much! I really appreciate it! :)
  7. 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...
  8. You know I’ll be keeping my eyes open for you! :)
  9. 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...
  10. Great shape and colors on this one!
  11. Thanks Bambus; good to know!
  12. 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...
  13. 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. :)
  14. 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.
  15. Hi Sammyz, yes, I do. I'd be happy to email copies to you if you'd like.
  16. Thanks so much, Malkey! I am so glad you like it! :)
  17. Hi sklo, thank you very much! They are quite different, aren't they? I love to compare decors on the same shape! :)
  18. 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!
  19. 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. :)
  20. Thank you, Wow22; I am glad you think so! :)
  21. 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.
  22. Thanks, Justanovice - I appreciate it! :)
  23. Thank you Phil! I am so glad you like it. The 4th picture isn't mine though - it is of a piece in Passau. :)
  24. 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...
  25. They do look very nice in your sideboard; I really like to see all of those rich colors catching the light. Lovely!
  26. ...or one so big!! :)
  27. This is beautiful, Phil. I love the color and have never seen one with applied prunts like this before!
  28. Very interesting! Can you possibly post the height, and a picture of the base? Thank you!
  29. What a beautiful pair, Phil - thanks for sharing them! :)
  30. Thanks so much, kivatinitz! :)
  31. Beautiful! A lovely one, Malkey, and your photos are stunning as usual, and show off the texture of the vase very well. :)
  32. Bambus, thank you - I am glad you like it!
  33. 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...
  34. Thank you, sklo! It is a very 'soft' decor, isn't it? :)
  35. Thank you, Kevin! CW is such a great resource for helping with ID's!
  36. Thanks so much, Maley! I am glad you like it! :)
  37. 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...
  38. 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! :)
  39. 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...
  40. 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. :)
  41. 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!
  42. 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...
  43. cameoboy, I haven't seen that before - I'll have to keep an eye out for one.
  44. Thanks, IronLace - what a terrific description! :)
  45. Thank you, sklo - I am always happy to hear when post is helpful. I have learned so much here over the years! :)
  46. Oh, I love this one - what a wonderful form and color!
  47. What beautiful pictures, IronLace - your glass looks so lovely with the violets in their natural home! :)
  48. I love the idea that these could be ice cream bowls, sklo - what fun they'd be to eat out of! :)
  49. Wonderful vase, Phil - your patience really did pay off! :)
  50. Thanks so much, Malkey! :)
