  1. great work! Vetraoi, Thank you for suggesting that there could have been labor and design migration from one company to another. Ales, what is the latest on the Zigzag shape? could the orange with co...
  2. Just mu observation not fact but I think the internal amber or rust color was a sprayed application of oxide, in your case maybe standing water caused the loss.
  3. I have only seen this shape in these three sizes but it is possible as 8” was a common size - also might be a 14” shape as well
  4. love this series
  5. I hope we can together soon and figure this out in the Czech Republic, even if it takes some time to change the minds of glass historians, appraisers, curators and dealers it is a good cause- thank yo...
  6. You are right about decor copies and I’ll post the Welz look-likes soon
  7. There are some good arguments here... what little evidence we have we need to build on an cross-confirm. It is my belief that we now have a good mark for Ernst Steinwald, a good ad from Germany with t...
  8. Seven years ago these Kralik decor attribution seemed very clear, I would love to declare all this glass Ernst Steinwald because of the small amount of evidence of it, but then we could be making the...
  9. I think this kind of work (foot tooling and glass mold) has been attributed to Wilhelm Kralik, also this type of glasswork can have variations with tango colors - fantastic piece
  10. I think it’s Ruckl - I have the matching shape in a controlled bubble- adventurine pull-up decor
  11. Fantastic piece, this decor is part of few well known decors seen is fan cases vases with the scallops- I call them tri-color confetti and have confetti that doesn’t overlap (meaning the hot glass was...
  12. Just fantastic thank you for the details Kai
  13. Fantastic piece!! I look for beautiful pieces to figure out who made them but sometimes it’s more important to have a beautiful piece of glass no matter witch Czech company made it
  14. My opinion only - Welz, Harrach or French in that order of probability- stunning shape
  15. Fantastic shape, I gravitate to this shape!
  16. Beautiful post, I love the glass of WMF
  17. I love this shape, I don’t think it’s too uncommon just too expensive -Haha
  18. Fantastic in the blues ... Loetz was amazing at reinventing similar shapes. Does anyone know how many trumpet shape variations there are ?
  19. This is a nice set, the beehive stopper appears to be made for a few companies (Kralik, Welz) they could be made separately and sold to glass houses as supplies like glass rods? - just a theory I ...
  20. Nice complete info- I think the the archives of the museum of South Bohemia hold all the answers but they don’t trust the publishers I think
  21. Yay, nice set, I would get the generic crystal stoppers not black ones- they look great
  22. Very nice, so I believe this decor comes in green, yellow, PINK, pale pink, red ... any other colors ?
  23. Fantastic - I don’t usually like pairs but these look amazing together
  24. Beautiful piece, I have seen the shape but with a black foot. I would call this Ruckl if it is thick- also ES&Co could possibly be the maker because of the use of the Zebra cane. The “Zebra cane” is a...
  25. Very good color, the Osiris comes in many colors but this is my favorite - do you have any with the lines running vertically?
  26. Fantastic piece, I am looking at Lava variations all the time, so soon more matches can be made. The way the rim breaks up like is very similar to some ES&Co shapes
  27. Aaahhhh - I am very obsessed with this vase !
  28. Amazing piece, tango influence and craftsmanship at its finest !
  29. I’m looking for it buddy, amazing piece. I do think many of the later pieces from Loetz (and probably kralik/ES&Co and others) used lesser materials to their fullest. Loetz for instance had Schaumglas...
  30. Quite right! It is the a variation on the drape with confetti (wave decor) found in red/white/blue. I have seen a few abstract drape decors (at first I thought it was a mistake) - so now I think the d...
  31. Me too, that pontil suggests a top notch maker like Loetz- keep looking at shapes for a compatible “ridged” effect. Look at metalin or Prochaska by Loetz
  32. I love pieces like this! Unique. I think it DOES have a pontil - it looks highly polished. The weird thing is the toughness of the rim, could it have had a lid or metal frog?
  33. I do think ES&Co made large Bambus types (seen in caged pieces) although there are many reasons to think the smaller ones were made by a different maker -because there are no large marked Bambus types...
  34. Nice post perfect for my two cents. The first two decors (pic 1) are different - the lime one is applied rod to a black base color while the red one is more blended - as if a rod was rolled into a...
  35. these are very cool- seems like the cane bunches on white opaline are many decors. Phil very cool to find you shades in documentation. Now find these decors on vases!!!
  36. yes, Ales is right WOW, this is smaller vase found in many "iris" type decors. This decor above is a crackles cased decor I have referred to as Giraffe. Although this one is not iridized there is anot...
  37. I think it better to wait for more documentation, surely they didn't only have one advertisement. I am working on what stays on the kralik side... hopefully both approaches work in the same way to bet...
  38. i have seen these in amber and cobalt, not seen that shape. looks very cool
  39. Funny enough I had never recognized them before as well, never seen them that tall! It was the applications that gave them away. They were both bought in Europe this year - so maybe they got certain t...
  40. Loumanal, thank you. Is it a confetti with those colors? I think they made it in crystal clear base and white base (same colors)
  41. Post it or it don’t exist
  42. Yes, I agree all made by the same glasshouse. The decors here encompass many possibilities and I would like to see more documentation and the advertising. The attribution of Kralik glass never sat wel...
  43. Thank you and others who’s pictures I have used. I know you are out there... thank you for your images
  44. Thanx wow, it’s an expanding field - so much has come to light in such a short tome
  45. When I translated lozenge to German Pastill
  46. Pastila is probably peppermint candy - my best guess is millifiori cane decor
  47. Do you have any perspective on why it is easier to find them outside of the Czech Republic? Passau has only one piece in the whole building (and it’s a sad example). The museum of south Bohemia was no...
  48. just beautiful
  49. Yes, I think so. The real shape is there except the foot- but if you look at the etching - it doesn’t look plausible, looks top heavy and you can see all three flowers... so I don’t take etchings lite...
  50. Here a few things I think happened: 1. Well respected authors, curators and auction houses credited Kralik as far back as I can remember so... follow the PHDs and trust they have their sources 2. Kr...
