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. IronLace, what a beautiful and special object! The canes within are stunning. I can just feel how much you love it. And I wanted to also tell you that your home and garden are beautiful, too! I love c...
  2. Thank you, Warren!
  3. Thanks so much, Wow22!
  4. Wow, the iridescence on this one is incredible - beautiful, Alan!
  5. Thank you raven3766! :)
  6. Thanks for getting back to me, Bambus - that is really good to know.
  7. Thank you very much Alan, I appreciate it!
  8. Thank you Bambus - I am glad you like it! Great to know about 'Patras' - where on earth did you find that out?
  9. Thank you sklo - you are so kind! I agree - the flowers/leaves are really something special. :)
  10. Thanks so much IronLace! It is a dramatic one, I agree!
  11. Thanks so much Craig! I have a much smaller Kralik piece with a similar flower, but it is nowhere near as three-dimensional as this one's flowers. They are pretty amazing close-up!
  12. Hi valentino97, good to know! Mine is 13.5 inches across. Thanks!
  13. Beautiful! The gilt is in good condition on this one - it is so often very worn. It’s a lovely vase, sklo! :)
  14. fhrjr2, oops - thank you for catching that! :)
  15. Thanks so much, junkbuddy!
  16. Terrific information! I am always on the lookout for enameled pieces of Rindskopf.
  17. Hi Kai, I know you are aware of Craig's site - I didn't mean to infer that you were not. I am familiar with Heckert's Changeant decor, and have looked at the shapes of some vases in that decor; I per...
  18. Kai, would you mind looking at the decor called Kralik Silver Stripe - Twisted on kralik-glass.com? I am curious if these are some of the shapes that have Now been identified as Heckert. Thanks!
  19. I never realized how beautiful JIPs look with a flower in them - the white rose against the green is gorgeous!
  20. I am going to see if I can find it in Kralik a shape...
  21. Have you seen this shape before? It's a good example of the decor, I think. (not my photo - I just uploaded it so I can post it here) https://www.flickr.com/photos/9646837@N06/48872096641/in/dateposte...
  22. I agree that some of the drawings in the Heckert book are not fully convincing. I wish some matched up better than they do. Thanks for pointing out Frank's post - I am going to take a look at this sha...
  23. One more post on the red decor here on CW: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/253078-fritz-heckert-modified-snakeskin-otto
  24. Thanks for your thoughts, Ales. Good points. And I also remember that statement in Pazurak - it really puts Rindskopf's production into perspective, doesn't it? By the way, I found the post with Mike'...
  25. I am glad to see you back, Alan! I had heard you were ill, and was hoping to see you here again soon. What a beautiful collection you have - congratulation on your lovely new vase, too!
  26. I have thought quite a bit about these decors, and have collected quite a few image examples of these, too. First, I am going to say that in the first photo, the vase in the middle I strongly believe ...
  27. Beautiful, Kai!
  28. Congratulations on a very special anniversary in your new home! You list wonderful things to celebrate. I am so happy for you - it is always a pleasure to see your posts here on CW!
  29. Wow Phil, you've been on a roll! This is a terrific piece!
  30. Oh my goodness Phil, these are gorgeous! Thanks for mentioning them in your other post - I hadn't seen them! What a beautiful pair. I completely agree with you that they feel dynamic. I especially lik...
  31. Wow, what a beauty, Phil!
  32. The rim is terrific! Tricky is a good description, I’d say. :)
  33. My pleasure! I have enjoyed seeing your glass here on CW! :)
  34. larksel, I just have to tell you that I keep coming back to look at these; they are absolutely gorgeous. There is just something really special about this color...
  35. Hi Lichnowsky, in recent months I have done a bit more looking into this decor, and found a great post by Warren Galle about this decor being a Wilms design that I think you'd like to see. You can fin...
  36. Beautiful examples and a great post, Craig!
  37. Very nice - I don’t think the pitchers are seen very often, either!
  38. Thank you, Lichnowsky, I am looking forward to reading your posts!
  39. Thank you, inky! I am glad you think so! :)
  40. Oh inky, this is just so stunning. The work that went into its decoration is just amazing. It will look gorgeous in your collection! Let me know if you ever find out who did the enameling, too!
  41. Thanks so much, Peggy! I am so glad you like them. I like collecting little vases like these, because I can display them all together on a small shelf. I think of them as my little jewels! :)
  42. Well, the Czech glass makes sense, then! But yes, I never ever thought of their being Czechs in Texas! Good luck for you and your research! :)
  43. Wow! That is a big one!! It looks super with your collection, Craig. I am amazed at the Bohemian glass you are finding in your new state! :)
  44. Thank you, Ales! :)
  45. What an amazing piece, Sammyz!!
  46. Thank you, Mrstyndall!
  47. Thank you, Sammy; I am glad you like it! :)
  48. It has attributes of both, I'd say, so that may be a tough one! :)
  49. Thanks so much, Peggy! :)
  50. What a lovely trio, Ales! I love Rindskopf, and would like to add a vase in this shape to my collection - and you have three, all in beautiful decors!
