Main interests are Loetz, Kralik, Rindskopf and Harrach, but there are so many more that deserve our attention! I also enjoy research and love a good glass mystery. I collaborate with an international group of collectors and have great fun doing it! (Read more)

  1. Great box - have you considered Fratelli Toso? The technique is a dead ringer.
  2. Superb example, Kai - it has everything - shape, color, and decoration - Well done!
  3. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you as well!
  4. A good thought Sammy. Some of the shape references are in line with that possibility.
  5. Wow22, they are 4" tall.
  6. Wonderful display - great design. :) Congratulations on a fine collection.
  7. How did I not see this when you first posted it? Spectacular!
  9. Dainty is right - the piece is rather diminutive also, at just over 4" tall.
  10. I believe this combination of colors is referred to as "Amethyst mattiris m. tropfen" - the PN is III-2017 according to the catalogue page in the back of Ricke 2.
  11. So good! Especially with the paper label :)
  12. Josephine Glassworks (Josephinenhütte), same time frame.
  13. Hello, Kai - thanks for those thoughts. As to the Series II possibility, we see now that Series II-1053 is already spoken for (a beaker/tumbler combination). I also recognize the possibility of an ana...
  14. Just under 6" tall
  15. Nice enameling on that one
  16. Sammyz, I did another post with photo of the shade when lit- check it out!
  17. Phänomen Genre 2/314 - a bit better than Tango! :)
  18. Steve - "innen Silber" (interior silver iridescence) appears at least as early as 1896-1897 - see PN I-6728. You usually see it in bowls, lamp shades, and vases with a flared or wide opening.
  19. I would say it's matte. As to the date - it references "orders placed after 1914" - so yes, it's quite possible it was produced pre-WWI. Could also have been made after.
  20. Could be?
  21. Thea innen Silber PG 6289
  22. Alan, It's about 4.5" tall, and perhaps a smidge wider.
  23. Thanks, Volkmar - it was a case of being at the right place at the right time :)
  24. Thanks, Deb - I agree - the thing I really like about it is that the oil spot decoration doesn't cover up too much of that glorious metallic yellow!
  25. This one is not marked.
  26. Way to wear him down :)
  27. If you ever get tired of it, Frank.... :)
  28. Bergblau?
  29. Nice, large example, Alan - and the metal mount makes it extra special. Enjoy!
  30. Very neat little item!
  31. Beautiful piece all the way around - nice add to your collection.
  32. Love the loops on the sides. This is probably my favorite color combo for this decor.
  33. Thanks, Rick - I love the closeup pic - it's interesting how the application of the oil spots seems to affect the combed threads beneath - kind of pushes them outwards. Glass making is a fascinating a...
  34. Yeah, Kevin... now I'm done for a while! :)
  35. I don't think so, Jeff. His original design drawing was for a lamp shade, which Loetz reproduced the shape of rather faithfully, but his decor designation was a rough sketch only - little more than po...
  36. Steve, if it is green at all (I know I said May green).... it very well could just be melusin with a greenish tint. All through the Cantz book when there is a pale green titania layer, it is just refe...
  37. Hi Steve - The other colors are mentioned in the Series II book - PN II-8652, for example, lists makart, rot, and schwarz as ground colors for Ausf 146. There is also an enticing description for a...
  38. Fortunately for me, the price was still quite reasonable. :) The red one in the last photo is another matter. That one was a steal of a deal. :)
  39. Rick, he did know they were Loetz, because he saw Kai's article on (it is a pair of green bowls)
  40. All III-2410, correct. It isn't always true that different sizes have the same PN, but it is true in this case.
  41. Yes we do, Rick - never stop learning is my motto :)
  42. Hello, Ivan - based on your description, I believe your bowl would be the larger size PN III-2410/25 cm width in cristall a.rubin
  43. You're welcome, Kai - thank you for leading the way once again.
  44. It took 5 years, Deb, but I finally found a Boule-Boule. :)
  45. Marty, that would have been a neat trick :)
  46. Thanks, Alan - same to you
  47. Stupendous find, Kai! I love it for several reasons, least of which is that it is so well documented and gives us a definitive view of what Harrach malachit looks like.
  48. Great color on these
  49. Outstanding piece and research! Congratulations on finding such a beauty!
  50. Thanks to all for the comments
