  1. Close-ups remind a little of the Etrusk pieces ...
  2. Hi Sammyz Think your description of Gelbgrun is probably a better description of the color than the Diana one ... although I do get Diana mixed up with Norma and Cisele ... think it has some variatio...
  3. My view ... Max's statement about PG's being "our Tiffany decor" is amongst the most facetious (/ sarcastic) comments ever to go totally over the head of a journalist (/ reporter) .... ... have our ...
  4. Looks great "Innen Silber" is interesting to ... any idea when Loetz started to use that terminology ?
  5. Hi Phil ... Could almost see this as Hellmarmor ... particularly with the heavy (very early) coralline ... Great piece ... how cream / yellow is it?
  6. Hi LauraH ... Very nice ... think the correct word for these is "Deckeldose" (or box) ... as opposed to your "bonbonierre" ... although I won't guarantee my spelling on either ... :-)
  7. This one of Warren's is the arhetype for "Makart" ... who was a Viennese Artist who actually had a festival day named after him ... (Wikipedia) ... http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/128218-rare...
  8. Hi Inky ... Very nice! Pretty sure they should be metallinrot / metalrot or similar ... Makart is meant to have a Orange fading to Opal ... while these are solid color ... No sign of a Dek # by an...
  9. Hi Michelle Looks a lot like a paler version on Heckert's Cypern ... many of which look like they could have come from Loetz (blanks) ... initial thought was amethyst from the pics ... could als look...
  10. Loetz with the ribbing .... Krystal with Zephyr Chine ...
  11. Very nice !
  12. Can see the Makart ground in your 3rd picture ... in between the threads of ... ?Schwarz (appearing dark brown or black) ... ... was thinking the rot is the other color we see about ... also on a Ma...
  13. Hi Warren Wondering if the Ausf 146's all perhaps have a Makart ground and green Titania finish ... with spreading red or chestnut (or darker) upper segment ? The pics on L.com appear to show at lea...
  14. When the roses are right ... they are right ! ... tend to think the "square" ones are reproduction ...
  15. Hi Kai Do you know who did the illustrations initially ... does make a difference in interpreting them ... Gould / Audubon / Darwin all approached illustration a bit differently ... Best match I can...
  16. Think we were discussing violet as well when this one came up ...
  17. Cheers Dave & Andy ... Will get some better pics but thought it worth "holding" this space ...
  18. Interesting in that the "holes" have progressed / regressed to being almost a Coin dot / thumbprint indentation ...
  19. Have always thought of them as Medallion ... but can't see them on Eddy's site or Craig's .... Will check the Dek Pics in back of Ricke1 as well but otherwise will have to try and figure out why ... M...
  20. A great test of Spellcheck Tolerances! Love the Kristall schiefgewaltzt's ?... !
  21. Hi Warren ... Fairly sure we used to have a Dekor identified as "Medallion" on Eddy's site ... Has this been totally superseded ? Cheers
  22. Thanks Leah Incredibly good condition ! Great spotting and great pics.
  23. Thx all Cheers Vet50 ... forgot about your Texas thang! Can't believe I missed the color difference between Clematis and Apfels ... just never had them in the same place before !
  24. Thanks Phil .
  25. Thanks Warren ... Will dig around for some pics ... Is a bit like calling hearts or diamonds "purple" ... (although that could just be the result of their urinalysis) :-)
  26. Slight discrepancy here with Clematis (Ausf 96) down as Gelbgrun while 'Texas mit Apfel" is documented on L.com as Gelb or Candia ... While the colors are the same (I think) ... .. and the bright UV ...
  27. Hi Phil ... Another Beauty! Wondering if you have a backlit pic / version of this ... still not all that clear myself on what constitutes Mountain Blue and Backlighting brings out the glass color nic...
  28. Hi Warren, any reason for gelb rather than gelbgrun? ... Have I missed something else ... somewhere ... sometime ... ... or is it spellcheck to the rescue some more ... :-)
  29. The Seal is indeed in Cantz Images No. 260: PN 4824/1 Documented production appropriately in Kristal Glatt The Elephant linked above from Cantz is a PN 4821 Images No. 017 ... and even includes the...
  30. philmac51 ... only have the 1st Edition ... Has the piece in question arrived as yet ??
  31. Another link with some ? Relevance ... :-) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clara_(rhinoceros) ... particularly if you are looking for a name ....
  32. Definitely not a Bore .... Totally exciting !
  33. Excellent ...! I Think Rago Auction house sold one in a mixed lot some years ago ... and think it is that one which is on L.Com masquerading as a Boar (under pigs) ... Great size ! ... Great find !
  34. Possibly ... http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/51317-an-assortment-of-vases-by-franz-wagner .... the black piece in particular ...
  35. Hi Lee Was a IV/103 I think (or similar) ... a little difficult to tell with the ribbed surface ... Check with Warren's posting of the Makart piece (12 months ago) ...
  36. Hi Vladimir ... Not sure if you noticed this piece has been put up on Loetz.com as an example of "Early Loetz Production" (under "Identifying Loetz Glass) ...
  37. Hi Inky ... Very Nice Missed this one in the Bohemian Glass thread ... The Number from here is "4147." Still potentially Loetz ... but would make it a PN rather than a Dek ...
  38. Sorry ... missed the "?" Haven't seen those z shaped 2's before either ... This one has an unambiguous IV http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/77292-the-majestic?in=user
  39. That would make it pretty good buying ! Interest you in IX/202 ... picture is suggestive but not conclusive ...
  40. Thanks for the id and translation Warren. Have never been able track it down so had always thought of these as a Krystal Melusin ... Does the MK piece in PGM have any other info with it ? Is next to...
  41. Hi Paul Is a pretty piece ... The best answer you may get is that it remains a mystery as does much of the History of the Smaller Bohemian Glass makers of the 19th Century ! Think you may be bein...
  42. i.e. a Greek reference
  43. ... does put it into the same territory as Olympia ...
  44. Warren ... Could also try 7931 and 7934 ... Series 1 ... "Corinth" ...
  45. Almost looks like a cross between Oceanic and Diaspora ... think Alfredo posted something on Oceanic variants here a few months back ... Not seen a Diaspora using that glass color ... even under th...
  46. Hi Inky Think you have it right at this point ... With the dark brown lines should go to Onyx ... Did not want to ruin Vet50's opening comments ... The lighter Color on the back is actually quite c...
  47. Many of the "pastry bag" pieces are turning out to be "700"series pieces ... wondering if the Loetz.com Dek index makes a lot more sense if viewed in that way ....
  48. Full title "Official Catalogue of the Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Nations 1851"
  49. Thanks Vet50 Fascinating links again ... From a different (more speculative) perspective that almost looks like an Olympia piece ... From the 1860's!
  50. Hi Alfredo Is an interesting listing of many of the names that are discussed here frequently ... Posted it at this magnification to be legible ... But there are 2 columns which I think run to a se...
