  1. Wow... that is a big one Ivonne ... love it!
  2. Great buy Penny! Looked at this for over a week - kept thinking there was something special about it - but I couldn't put my finger on it, then forgot about it. Should have taken your advice and boug...
  3. Happy Christmas Kev!!!
  4. Fabulous piece - love it!
  5. Hi Rick - thanks for the comment. Yeah I really like this décor.... I haven't seen anything other than this colour combination so far,,
  6. At least!
  7. Bottoms up Glasstro!!
  8. Hey Wow, thanks for the comment - actually here is another (much smaller) example of the same décor:
  9. Thanks Glasstro, Tino and Karen for your comments Thanks Ian - very kind of you to say so. And yes, Jericho, always very satisfying to get a unknown decor on a known shape - very satisfying for the ...
  10. Lovverly!
  11. I think it's the pontil that's the anomaly and might suggest a maker other than Kralik?? I have seen this type of pontil on Ruckl attributed pieces. However, if I was making a comparison on the finis...
  12. Let's talk about it...
  13. Sounds like a plan!
  14. Wow - you're spoiling us Jericho!
  15. Stunning pieces - one day!!
  16. You're welcome Rick..
  17. Thanks again Glasstro - I appreciate the comments - cheers!
  18. This is stunning Rick! (Incidentally and nothing to do with this, but... have a look at Kai's article on re cut glass:
  19. Hey Rick - have a look at Kai's article on
  20. These are absolutely adorable - fantastic!!
  21. Still love it - very interesting that this amethyst responds to black light. Good to know it's in safe hands!
  22. Thank you Ian!
  23. Thanks Glasstronaut!!
  24. Thanks Jericho - Yes the shape is certainly 20-30s in design, despite the 'Bohemia' label that might suggest it was earlier. There is also an identical Kralik label that shows 'Czechoslovakia' instead...
  25. Hi Warren - I'm not sure - and rather reluctantly have I just recently let it go, along with some others to make room for some new pieces that I have just acquired from a collector in France - 21 piec...
  26. Hahaha - love it too!!
  27. Wow Bob, what a fabulous size and wonderfully vibrant!
  28. Not a problem Al... funny - I think it looks better that Steuben actually ; )
  29. As I have never actually held a Steuben Aurene piece, can you give me an idea of weight for size, thickness of glass, whether semi-transparent or opaque. I have had a quick look at some examples and t...
  30. Hey there Rick - thanks for popping in! Yeah, it's a bit special....
  31. Thanks Lou, 'liquid gold' describes the effect on this piece very well indeed, and yes I did see that article, and I agree it is very interesting - not sure Kralik actually produced anything that I wo...
  32. Thanks Wow22- yes it is very interesting and even more unusual as despite it's obvious 'art-deco' design the label seems suggests something made sometime before that period.
  33. That's interesting as that would suggest not Loetz - post 1918 marks for Loetz are normally in an oval CZECHO on top SLOVAKIA below??
  34. Love them!
  35. Yeah...well I dunno it's a question that a Loetz expert may be able to confirm or otherwise - I gotta say, I did have a little doubt. It would probably be less questionable if the rim and feet were bl...
  36. Thanks guys. Gotta say I'm pretty excited about this new find.
  37. Lovely stuff Peggy....good luck with the move!
  38. Thanks Tony.... it's true that something will replace the loss sometime in the future.... but there's no telling how long that wait will be..
  39. Haha! Thanks Marty - I know you know what this is like from reading some of your posts previous posts .... and yes what follows.....??.....!
  40. It is heartbreaking and gone forever....but still I haven't managed to bring myself to trash it yet, but onwards and upwards! There's still lots of beautiful glass out there .... Thank you to ever...
  41. I should have marked them with a GRAPHIC CONTENT warning!
  42. ... and congrats on post no.1, looking forward to many more ...
  43. Whoa! fabulous display!
  44. Yep - No movement is certainly the key - Thank you Violet.
  45. Seller has just made the refund - and apologised - I should think so too! And great advice above on filling the larger piece hollows with good packing, wrap up good and box tight! Thanks to Glasstro...
  46. Thanks to Manikin, Jericho and the OWL. I takes something like this get back to instructing sellers how to pack. When you've been buying for a while, you tend to let it go - so back to basics .... I ...
  47. That's the thing Scott - you find real bargains from sellers, who generally don't have much experience selling art glass - as a consequence these same individuals also don't have much experience packi...
  48. You know what Alan ... I've asked - and I expect to get it - even if the seller doesn't play ball, he'll come around - I just might have to wait a little is all.
  49. Thank you Moonhill - I guess pain shared is pain halved.
  50. Totally does..... thanks mate!
