Had no idea Loetz tango included such a decor! Love it. Have you seen other examples?
This is an interesting turn-up. Seems to me to be a Welz basket shape and handle with the provenance stamp often found on Welz production (although not used for sole attribution). Never seen any pin...
Yes, demure but quietly confident - not brash like its cousins.
Fascinating insight into the research behind new attributions. Thank you!
Marvellous to see an assortment.
Thank you for such a scholarly and informative post.
Love the red flames on this!
Yes, with our modern sensibility the 'clash' is pleasing, but I'm not certain it is of the time????
Would this orange enamel originally have been gold? I have observed the gold enamel (cold painted?) on a lot of old glass has this orange colour peeping through from underneath. The decoration seems...
Rods onto hot glass cylinders seems the most plausible to me. Rods placed into molds - not possible.
I agree about the possible size disparity in photo 4. It also looks to be a different shape (vase on right has rounder base?) - is that just a trick of the photo? I am trying to understand more, Is ...
Wonderful!! Such precision.
This post is really wonderful. I always love original drawings mapped to real pieces. I am a little surprised that for such an important piece, it does not have a more exciting ground. Don't get me...
Thanks for clarification. It's gorgeous.
Definitely Australian Boulder Opal - google it.
Silver-yellow rosettes!? How interesting. They have such a strong blue iridescence. Beautiful piece.
I missed it too!
Interesting post. (Yes, I commented on that other post suggesting Welz production, but my comments have since disappeared.) Sklo recently posted some interesting examples too. https://www.collector...
So - did all the snails in your garden come racing out to mingle with their pretty new companion?
I once owned one of these but never realised it was a Welz decor. Thanks for clarifying the link.
Yes, I've never been able to work these out either. Waiting for someone to set us on the right path.....
The similarly executed Welz pieces to which I was referring can be seen in the two top images of photo 3 in this post https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/206063-welz-tango--cased-decor?in=441-ac...
Sure. It's all good. A vigorous exchange of ideas is always good, when there is reason involved. ;)
I completely agree these 'giraffe' style pieces are normally attributed to Kralik, and seen in many colours. That appears the most likely glass house. However, personally, I haven't yet excluded Wel...
Gosh! This decor is really interesting.
I also questioned whether they might be Welz. (Wasn't brave enough to say it though because Welzebub didn't...... ) Just adding to your confusion :)
The original link I provided has been deactivated. Try this one for different figure to larksel's: https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/amazing-helios-papillon-iridescent-1858731159 I lean toward...
Different shape, same idea http://www.allantiqueglass.com/papillon-helios-loetz-era-vase-with-metal-figure-sold/
I would have seen it here on CW, but I can't find it. Sorry.
I've seen these before - there's definitely something missing which, when present, makes the shape make more sense - something perched on the little ledge - a bird? an animal? I can't recall exactly w...
So, it's Harrach!! How interesting.
This is still a Kralik shape for me. I own a 9 inch example in definite Kralik millefiori decor with semicircle provenance mark. My example has no foot.
This is nicer than lovely! I've never seen one like this. And I'd call it Tango! ;) (But I don't recall seeing any etched tango.) The cut/etched design appears to be emulating (in a cruder executi...
As Sklo commented - there's no precise definition, so we can all be right.
I'm enjoying the discussion. In my mind, Tango always included all opaque, brightly coloured glass, usually with a contrasting trim (in black, blue or less commonly, white). I also sometimes 'loosely...
Hate to be a purist! Don't take my word for it. Mostly I regard tango as a solid, bright colour with contrasting trim. There were, however, some spatter pieces in the Tango Sklo exhibition, so I th...
I wouldn't have described this spatter piece as tango (too many colours?), but I love it!
I love this one. Given the pronounced surface application of red, where it occurs on the base, does it wobble?
Great example. Is this shape seen often?
Your group shot looks great. I've always thought these particular tangos are fun pieces. (I don't believe they are Kralik.) I'm looking forward to seeing the next shot with the addition of red and ...
Cool. I like the way the 'finial' is an extension of the stepped design, rather than an additional element. Wouldn't any disparity in colour intensity be from manufacture, rather than wear?
This one is bizarre.
Interesting, thanks. Maybe it just got bumped from my 'loose' categorisation! .....Whoever made it, it's gorgeous.
Thanks for the clarification welzebub. I'm glad to hear I wasn't completely out of my depth. I couldn't reconcile those two with Welz production at all!
I'm a bit surprised by two on the bottom shelf in the Welz case (Centre and Right). I didn't know these are Welz.
Beyond fantastic! Looks a bit precarious on that tiny foot?
