  1. Hi Phil. that makes sense, the art nouveau colors and decors. I have a third page coming up from the same group of images. Dating might be earlier in 19th, 1880-1900. Tks.
  2. Thanks for the loves my CW friends, always appreciated, especially these days we are still struggling with disease and economic stresses. Best - Lisa
  3. Thank you for the loves CW members, glad you approve of this great green decor Czech glass vase.
  4. Thank you for the loves and comments CW members.
  5. that is really good information Ales, it gives a wider view of the Steinwald glass production from earlier in the 20th century decors and glass pieces. Your example is one that I have always like, ...
  6. I often wonder about these antique Bohemian glass items in Czech Republic Museums, and when they were acquired and from whom? The British museums such as the Victoria and Albert decorative arts est...
  7. Thank you CW members, for the positive support of my post. Always appreciated from those members who have keen enthusiasm that never wanes.
  8. Ales thank you so much for your comments, there is nothing more valuable than living in the country where this glass was produced and having an understanding with knowledge of background facts and imp...
  9. Happy to revisit this post, as I recently came across some old documentation I had that shows this exact decanter glass owl, in a Chicago wholesale catalog.
  10. Thank you for the loves, this post emphasizes that we will continually have new information as the years go by. We must be flexible and accept that fact with good grace if we can.
  11. Thank you RichmondLori for the fine comment, gladd you enjoyed the post. Thank you CW members for the loves, always appreciated.
  12. Recently I have been doing some research into the Harrach version of the tango glass decors during 1920s. There is much documentation regarding shapes, colors, items, and overall style of Harrach tang...
  13. Thanks Karen, I was thinking about you for some reason when I posted today. That is a good one, just shows nobody knows everything there is to know. Hope you and yours are well.
  14. Thank you for the fine comments and the loves, CW members, always appreciated.
  15. hello kivatinitz. I have the same shape box but with a deep red oxblood spatter with gray and white on a bright red interior glass surface, and added clear glass layers. Makes for a subtantial piece o...
  16. Mae76, you are welcome, I tried to find another Wilkinson Imari piece from the 19th. There is much more antique ware from the producer Royal Straffordshire Pottery on hand. Tks.
  17. Well WS, you hit the right producer of American watches, join the site, you wont be sorry. They are over 10 years in accumulating a large informative database of thousands of Bulova watch...
  18. AO, I agree, I love the novelty and unique type of watches, that one was of excellent quality, hardly worn. Thank you.
  19. I am still thinking about this pair of very nice white baskets and wondered who was the most likely produder during interwar period to use an all white decorative glass body, my answer was the same Kr...
  20. I looked at all the Czech glass baskets here and the body might be similar but the rims are different. The pink one is a good example of this, as well as the yellow etc. Unless you think all glass ba...
  21. Hi Karen, I just came across your 3 year old question, on Ebay I think, many years ago, when I was mostly into Chinese and Japanese decorative wares, textiles, etc I recognised the orchid mark, but...
  22. Very nice pair, the decor could be Kralik, but the shape is close to other baskets on this site, except for the upper rim divided in 4 lobed section.
  23. Than YOU Jenni and Eileen. Your kind comments make my day. As well as the CW members approval, always appreciated.
  24. "The first vase posted in comment one has been regarded as a Welz shape for quite a while." Maybe in some glass groups, but my glass vase shape is not generally accepted as Welz. The black rigaree ...
  25. beautiful, amazing what are inside some of these rocks, make you want to go on a hike, with a pail, a hammer and a treasure hunting mood.
  26. Thank you for the loves and the comments CW members, always very appreciated.
  27. I think it is antique eggshell vitreous porcelain, probably Asian in spite of the mark, must be a story here, bought directly from the maker, maybe. Very nice.
  28. Hi Ivonne, I think it is Kralik, they made their own orange spatter color mix, and your vase is more in their tones than the Ruckl orange mix. Maybe this is funny to some, but because of all the diffe...
  29. I agree with Phil, I also see a chest game piece, the Cavalry officer or Knight, with a double head, since the design of these pieces can change a lot over time, possible that was the inspiration. ...
  30. Yes, people who leave their mark and are not forgotten.
  31. Thanks Karen, line green is not my favorite color, but the way they used this on this vase is wonderful. The image is the seller's as well, he is in Germany and I told him I loved his skill with photo...
  32. "there is no country or company name which was required after 1891", my error here, I meant BEFORE 1891.
  33. Good mystery, and I admire very old English pottery. Early version tureen of the 19th century Royal Staffordshire Pottery with the producer Wilkinson works. A link to the Wilkinson company , and a ...
  34. This stamp with the junk boat I linked here is said to be dated as 1925 on Pinterest, the collage includes a part of it ...
  35. What a revelation, I have small collection of large Murano birds or fowl, gifts to my hubby over the years, but these Karen are just wonderful. You keep us well informed about glass we are not so fam...
  36. Thank you Karen, you are very sweet (tongue in cheek), to keep with the taste of the comment... Hope all is well with your Australian summer. Thank you for the loves CW members, always appreciated.
  37. Very interesting set of plinth or stand and bowl, Ruckl does have some of these sets in a spatter or honeycomb decor, but not in this shape. The application of the unique multi colored grey-black-w...
  38. Gorgeous, I think it is early 20th, Edwardian 1900-1910, American, the back of the pendant at 6 oclock, seems to have the letters STERLING on the oval frame, not quite impressed and legible. Thanks fo...
  39. Here is one large pedestal foot bowl I owned, with a gold circle mark for Made In Czechoslovakia on the base, in another combination of colors.
  40. Ann asked me years ago what my opinion was about this pieces, I told her it could be Ruckl, in the double spatter decor with a shimmy pfau base of darker glass chips with green aventurine. Its possib...
  41. it looks like Arabic to me, the symbols with long flowing line, and the dot marks in between, could it be an export to the Middle East?
  42. Well it depends on the man or the woman, hubby and I have the same size wrist we are both tall, and they measure a bit under 7 inches.
  43. great glass display!!!!
  44. Alain, we always have some new mystery members that come and go, I also wonder about it..... Thank you for the compliment, it is nice to post in peace. Happy Holiday to you too, glad you are hanging...
  45. Thank you Warren, the link was very impressive and shows much added information since I last read it.
  46. Oh! Wow! Mary, it is about 7,5 inches long, and quite chunky, I would wear it too, but I already gave several fine link bracelets on each wrist, call me an inveterate old eccentric. Hope you are ha...
  47. Thanks AnythingObscure, that made me laugh, I like it too, but our boomer generation was not traditional and this piece is sold as MCM, modernist 1950s-60s, which may be right or wrong. Best wishes...
  48. cloisonne has nothing to do with this post, you digress. According to the English language label, Made In Austria, which was a wording requirement for imports to USA, by Tarif Law in 1921, not befo...
  49. apostata, sometimes the knowledge of historical facts are important in the evaluation of certain items and their labels. If you translated all of what Warren stated, it is his experienced opinion t...
  50. Interesting premise except for one thing, the Made In Austria label would have been later than 1920, I expect it represents the post WWI Republic of Austria, made for export to USA. Possible its a ...
