  1. Beautiful example Loetz carneol.
  2. This is a really sensational piece. Congratulations.
  3. Nice piece. Painting maybe by someone from the Pfohl family (Alexander Sr. or Jr. or Brigitte?) - Nový Bor (Haida).
  4. A beautiful piece. Congratulations.
  5. Birthday congratulations to you both and also to a wonderful gift.
  6. So I haven't seen it yet. This is unique. Thanks for posting.
  7. This is a truly extraordinary beautiful piece. Congratulations.
  8. Both shapes presented here appear in decors that (so far probably only) I assign to the Ernst Steinwald glassworks. Along with the CARPÉ brand, semicircular Czechoslovakia markings sometimes appear. ...
  9. An interesting and inspiring opinion. Thanks Marin. Is there perhaps really some similarity to the following:
  10. Thanks for your comments. Unfortunately, I have no further information on this bowl. "Millefiori" I think not. So I can exclude Welz. Maybe it's not even bohemian glass?
  11. Unfortunately, I do not have the book by G. Cappa to which Hartmann refers. In another book by G. Cappa: Le Génie verrier de l´Europe from 1998, the "Millefiori" decor dish with the IRIS DECOR BOHEMIA...
  12. In the Hartmann Glasmarken Lexikon, the Iris Dekor Bohemia paper sticker is listed at the Loetz glassworks. This is obviously a mistake. (There is also a reference to Lit. - Giuseppe Cappa: LÉurope de...
  13. Thanks for your comment Jericho. I finally managed to buy this vase. It should be delivered on the first working day after the New Year (almost three months on the road). Unfortunately, I have not fou...
  14. correcting: very similar shape
  15. Here is my vase of the same shape.
  16. Craig, well, if it's not Welz, then I'm leaning towards Ernst Steinwald again. The candlestick you are referring to is, in my opinion, ES&C again. (I bought it a few years ago from Warren). Until rece...
  17. Lisa, thank you.
  18. Nice piece. I have the same or very similar in my collection. I have it listed as the Kralik "Snowflake" variant. But I do not rule out that someone else did it.
  19. This is absolutely sensational. Congratulations.
  20. The Regional Museum in Teplice has 2 examples of this decor with a paper sticker with the inscription Steinwald. The credibility of this designation has been confirmed by several Czech experts in bohe...
  21. An amazing piece. Congratulations.
  22. Maybe another variant who is the manufacturer of this decor. First it was assigned to the Loetz glassworks, later Welz, Rückl, or the Bavarian Joska glassworks. The shape of the third vase on the lef...
  23. Beautiful collection.
  24. I am sorry. The decor on Steinwald's vase in the Teplice Museum is not Martelé, but Diamond texture. I thought it was a variant of Martelé. Thanks for pointing out the difference.
  25. I do not yet know the details of this acquisition of the Teplice Regional Museum. I only have photos of 6 vases that are marked Steinwald and I know of 2 more that this Museum has in its exhibition. I...
  26. In the Teplice Regional Museum there is a vase of the same shape (without wrapping in red glass) in the "Martelé" decor, which has a paper sticker with handwritten Steinwald. This is the original desi...
  27. I have never seen this decor in this shape. Again, I have to congratulate you on a great finding.
  28. Amazing pieces of Riedel. Congratulations.
  29. Thank you for the explanation. I also consulted this vase with Dr. Lenickova. I think that production by the W. Kralik glassworks is only one of the possibilities. Otherwise, I agree that the signatu...
  30. Yes according to WVM Monograph No. 59 should be a "Meteor" decor and according to the comments on this catalog, it should be made by the W. Kralik glassworks. Unfortunately, in my opinion, it is not t...
  31. This is another mystery. The shapes are very similar to the shapes of the shades from the Steinwald´s catalog (Blatt 9, shape 2991 and 2837 or 2838). See:
  32. I have already decided to convert most of the decors from the 1920s and 1930s years from Kralik to Steinwald, in particular on the basis of the following information: - the identified decors Flowera...
  33. An amazing piece. Congratulations.
  34. Wonderful. Congratulations.
  35. It is beyond discussion that the history of the glassworks in Lenora (Meyr, W.Kralik) is relatively well documented. However, this does not apply entirely to the documentation of the production of thi...
  36. Very interesting post and comparison. Thanks for this post. In my opinion, another argument in favor of Steinwald. I think all these vases are from ES&C. But it is only my opinion based on the used sh...
  37. I'm just saying I'm convinced Steinwald did it. At the same time, however, I say that the majority opinion is that it is attributed to the W. Kralik glassworks. Time will tell who is right. I would ju...
  38. You are certainly not alone in insisting on assignment to Kralik. It is also a big problem for me. Until recently, I considered the assignment to the W. Kralik glassworks to be unambiguous. However, b...
  39. I agree that more evidence would be needed to reclassify a number of decors from Kralik to Steinwald. But in this case - the decor referred to as "Wave" is, in my opinion, more circumstantial evidence...
  40. Nice. I think it is the production of some glassworks from the Teplice area - most likely Rindskopf.
  41. Beautiful vase. It is a product of the Ernst Steinwald & Co. glassworks. Mostly, however, it is still attributed to Wilhelm Kralik glassworks.
  42. Yes, it is really an extremely beautiful piece that would adorn the collection of each museum. Congratulations.
  43. Yes Phil, you're right it's definitely I / 358.
  44. This is a really beautiful piece. Congratulations. I wonder if the digit before / is really I.?
  45. I'll make it even more complicated. I don't think it's either Kralik or Tomschick, but Steinwald.
  46. A beautiful piece. Here is a link to the same decor in my collection:
  47. Very interesting. Thanks for posting.
  48. I'm still thinking Poschinger did it. Is there a reference to literature or a catalog?
  49. A beautiful piece. Definitely the same manufacturer. I haven't seen it in this color version with a cracklé finish. I guess the crackle is a bit rougher than the Loetz crackle from later period. I bel...
  50. And a reference to Ausf. 123 on (mainly photo from Museum Sumava):
