I stated the signature as a possible Loetz Dek mark and I would like to come back on the Roman numerals left of the slash. The Roman numbers are often written having a horizontally bar above and below...
Dear Michelle, of course I know Craig's web site. Now, since the publication of the book by Stephania Zelasko 'Fritz Heckert Kunstglas Industrie 1866-1923' nearly all previously Kralik 'Siverbanded' ...
The signature might read as a Roman numeral IV over 127., the top horizontal line of the IV slightly deep (as running through the numerals). This would be a typical Loetz Dek numbering, the décor woul...
I would asign this vase to Heckert, there are other vases known having the very same décor applied onto typical Heckert shapes
Thank you Ales, scottvez, vetraio50 and Sammyz for your kind comments and all for your loves. Now, scottvez, I have visited the outstanding Glass Museum at Passau at least 5 times and, as far as I n...
I would still assign this bowl to Loetz 'Oceanic', depending onto the light some may appear darker.
Hi Jericho, thank you for your interest, to my opinion the mount is especially made to fit the vase perfectly, from the mixture of styles it must be assigned to the time before WW I. To repeat this t...
Dear Ales, yes it is the very same signature as on your 'Intarsia' vase, one may be indeed thinking it would mean ML - ligated, when reading 'Patent', but it is only meaningful as LW, reading - thoug...
Hi Watchserver, the mount is very solid, nothing moves. Whereas the style of Loetz vase still looks quite modern, the mount comprises a mixture of styles, beginning at the foot from 'Renaissance, ove...
Another mystery solved, congratulations
Dear Ales, I like to add another comment, that might substanciate your findings. When you examine the signature PK, you will find, that actually there is a cobination of three letters: an F showing t...
Instead of 'Candia Glatt' I would describe the décor of this nice vase as 'Arcadia'
This seems to be the first - really remarkable - assignment, of this up to now mysterious mark 'FPK', to a glass refinery. Highly interesting.
When I first saw this vase in internet, I thought on modern Czech production imitating Gre 356, 358 at the bottom part, though quite unsuccessfully. From weight and shape I still belief it is modern C...
Hi Warren, a very interesting piece, especially as one can compare the details of a design drawing with the corresponding execution.
Hi Steve, thank you for your contributions, now, the article mentioned is printed together with all historical articles about Loetz the author Waltraud Neuwirth put together in her reference book abo...
Hi Steve, In an article published in the German newspaper 'Zentralblatt' 1894 page 481 about Loetz at the World Expo, Chicago it is written ...'Camelienroth, ein neues rothes mit Gold gefaerbtes Glas...
A really exciting story on researching Loetz décors.
Thank you all for your kind comments and loves
Thank you all for your kind comments and loves.
Thank you, Deb for your kind words on my interest into Bohemian glass. I don't know anybody else, who spent such engagement, interest, knowlegde and not at least investments on research of Loetz produ...
The organic shape looks like a presentiment of the later well known Holubetz design, congratulation.
Your vases are good additional examples of the 'Persian' décor I previously posted. Especially your 'Lapislazuli' variation ist interesting. Hopefully we might see more items alike on CW.
I'm looking forward in seeing your vases, possibly I know them already from your excellent web site.
Dear Ales, I don't think, that there is a difference in the type of décor, but only in the naming applied to it lateron. As far as I know, the original naming is yet unknown.
This is a Kralik piece.
Thank you very much for citing loetz.com and my article on Loetz cut glass in the hope, that this type of traditional Bohemian decoration, used by Loetz, too, will become more popular.
I would strongly support Val St. Lambert as being the producer of your nice vase.
Hi inky, actually I believe your finely cut goblet was made earlier, about 1840, and more possibly in Bohemia as in Silesia. Drinking glases were much smaller, as compared with a goblet of 1.5 kg and...
Hi, with respect to no additional remains of a true Loetz Dek number, I wouldn't assign your vase to be made by Loetz but possibly to some Bohemian maker.
Dear Ales, concerning gilded relief email of dragons, there exist a quite large number of Harrach made items like 'peach blown' or 'oxblood' decorated vases. I may send some of those examples to you...
Hi Ales, this is a Harrach vase. On one of my posts, about 5 years back, I described this type of dragon, copied from a famous book by Racinet in detail. Please take a look.
Hi, this might possibly be a 'Early Loetz' vase, the signature not being a 'H', but a roman one 'I', usually Loetz added a arabic number, but this might have been washed away or actually there was no...
A marvelous contribution on identifying Loetz decors.
Thank you for all your kind coments and loves
Warren, you may have forgotten to mention, that cobalt blue 'Orbulin' is known, too.
Hi vetraio50 thank you for your kind greetings I wish you a happy New Year, too and many new collector items in the coming year.
Dear Warren, a very interesting contribution onto the early Loetz production, especially the link to the foto of the Chicago Exhibition is a excellent observation. Another vase of same décor could be...
Hi, I always love your spontaneous ideas and coments and your unique photos, too. I wish you a soon recovery.
Congratulations for your 1.st Loetz Candia Papilon bowl.
I like your Myra, especially the very early tiny Myra vase with handles seen on the 2.nd and 3.rd foto. I collect Myra glass, too, especially the more rare so called 'Red Myra'.
The décor of this beautiful jar is known from other items made by 'Kunstglasfabrik Gebrueder Funk&Co' Bohemia
Hi Malkey, this is a beautifull Bohemian Cu overlaid vase, but I'm afraid it is not a Loetz 'Metallin'
I think, your vase is an example of a glass décorating technique called 'pitochomania', it was popular around 1880-1910. They are not often seen, but nevertheless they are offered from time to time, e...
In the meantime, I got so many loves and comments, that I'm glad to thank all those enthusiastic CW members again.
Thank you all for your kind comments and loves and for creative Malkey I wish you the very best recovery. I also would like to understand what 1412 or 16.32 may mean.
This is really an interesting pitcher, I like the optically 'Schief gewalzt' glass. Warren, do you think the hops+griffin décor is engraved, to me it looks like being etched as the sharp etches of eng...
A wonderfully enamelled bohemian vase, congratulation. Do you have some reference to assign it to Josephinenhuette ?
Hi Warren, I like the décor of finely pulled feathers, especially on ruby red glass.
A lot of investigations to identify this type of décor was done by Stefania Zelasko. In her book 'Fritz Heckert' the shape of your vase is seen on the O.Thamm design paper at page 200 and as far as I ...
