  1. Agreed, not entirely helpful.
  2. Thank you Peggy, Gillian, Malkey and Michelle
  3. Whoever made it, it's a bargain thrift shop buy - so well done. But I would agree, that it is most likely relatively modern.
  4. It would be helpful to all if Kai could provide some images of clearly attributable KGF&Co examples in this décor. As has been said before these décors are and have been extremely hard to identify to ...
  5. Thanks for that Craig.... it was actually the pieces in the last link you posted above that made me think it may be Kralik. I also agree that the KGF&Co sample, if that is what it is, is certainly not...
  6. This type of 'threaded' patterning and similar has been seen on virtually all art deco pieces whether Bohemian or not and attributed to pretty much all of them. What evidence is there to say so catego...
  7. Great furniture - Great glass!
  8. Thank you Mrs T!
  9. Great information sharing Craig - Thank you!
  10. Thanks Winndwalker.... been very busy with the day job over the last 9 months or so, which I can't complain about, hasn't stopped me acquiring stuff, but has left me less time to post - in catch-up mo...
  11. Love the shape of these Peggy....great find!
  12. Hi Art I think CW staff may have removed the link - fair enough... it is against the rules to show a link too pieces that are on sale. So I've sent you an email - Subject : ERPHILA - just in case it...
  13. I know I shouldn't be pointing anyone to pieces that are on sale - but just for research purposes - This is interesting.... A vase with both the ERPHILA label and definitive CZECHOSLOVAKIA Kralik acid...
  14. Hi Wow The 'profile' of this knuckle is easily identifiable as Kralik. this particular knuckle profile is more often seen on footed pieces. Here are a couple of links to the same shaped pieces whose ...
  15. Wow, really unusual décor on this one Peggy, great find!
  16. A wonderfully well balanced cane pattern on this - beautiful!
  17. IronLace - re-categorise it to Bohemian Art glass, as that is what it is, rather than just Art Glass. It has a Welz look - 'stripes and spots' Craig will certainly have a better idea on maker.
  18. What a great size Alan - spectacular!
  19. This shape is more often associated with the 'webbed' pattern - interesting to see it in this rarer décor - very nice indeed!
  20. I just love Czech Murano glass!
  21. Thanks Peggy - yeah this one is very well balanced.
  22. Justanovice : I was once told that Liverpool had been the capital of Wales...The argument doesn't hold much water for me, but go out on St. Patrick's night in Liverpool and you would think it was the ...
  23. This one passed me by Craig... crazy, love it!
  24. I know that Peggy.... just teasing back ; )
  25. A great find Alan, I expect it glows fabulously under black (UV) light!
  26. IVAN : My personal view is that no.3 is indeed Kralik. Justanovice : Almost everyone born in Liverpool claims some Irish ancestry - I'm no different, with Irish Grandparents on both sides - so the lu...
  27. Thank you Penny!
  28. Thank you Malkey and Michelle.....yes, it was a great deal.
  29. Beautiful piece Malkey....and super piccys as always....CW is a better place with you and your wonderful postings - I always look forward to them....keep them coming my friend!
  30. Excellent find - still waiting for one to turn up myself!
  31. Hi Warren - maybe the Fullers Brewery in the UK? This has a Griffin logo - not the same as the one on this piece - but there could be a connection?
  32. Extraordinarily wonderous piece, thank you for posting Kai!!
  33. Wonderful piece Penny!!
  34. Oooh I love finds like these, from poor descriptions and bad photography. Absolutely stunning find, congrats!
  35. Perfect description, thank you!
  36. To Malkey, IronLace and valentino: Thank you for your likes comments and COLOURFUL descriptions!!!

  39. ..mixing up my savanna wildlife...haha!
  40. Oh yeah.... Giraffe!!
  41. Oh those early pieces that slip through our inexperienced hands - actually still happens on occasions.
  42. Thank you to MrsT and Scott - it really is a great colour combo.
  43. Thank you Peggy - lots more coming, it's good to rejoin the 'party.'
  44. THANKS J - Nice compliment from one of the best!!
  45. oh, there's more Lesley.....
  46. Hi IronLace - I ended up selling it privately - actually it was a reluctant sale - I was just making space, was a very beautiful and unusual piece.
  47. This is a wild one Peggy!
  48. Everyone should have the right to express themselves in they way that they want and everyone should have the right of free speech....which has been somewhat eroded by extreme idealogues on the left an...
  49. Wow....fabulous find Al ....and what a size!!!
  50. Very hard to find these days and a particularly nice example...and a warm welcome to CW!
