I was hopeful that the forum member in question would simply pull down a personally insulting multi paragraph rant about me on her website and leave it alone, while I was hopeful that the forum member in question would simply pull down a personally insulting multi paragraph rant about me on her website and leave it alone, while at the same time moving forward, she would refrain from using my name on her website at all...... but apparently not --------- This has been an ongoing practice by this individual for many years now. -------------- Apparently my request for a retraction flies in the face of accepted literary practices...... :-) I would clarify that the reason for requesting a retraction (aside from it being my right to do so, if my name is used in a manner publicly which I deem to be inappropriate) is due to my ongoing issues with the individual, and my resulting total lack of interest in even the most remote possibility that my name/research would be associated in any manner with the author of the article. ------- As of 04.12.19, We now have a whole litany of new public statements on her website about me. These new rants alone speak, volumes to the reasons behind my desire to have no association with this member in any manner, in any forum or publication. ---------- Personal insults, and public rants such as these have occurred for several years on her website and elsewhere, and yet this individual is then offended by my publicly expressed desire of wanting to have nothing to do with her when she uses my name in association with an article she wrote...... Apparently, "The evident FACT is that this man has a basic high school education, has no idea about what the literary world traditions and common practices are, and never will." ---------- ROTFLMFAO..... What I absolutely do have is a Masters Degree in "Keyboard Warriors" who try to level insults from a "Safe Place". --------- Why would someone write these kinds of insults and post them publicly for years, and then use the name of the years long "target" of the insults as a "credit" on an article???? Escapes logic...... What also escapes logic is the use of one's "educational" website as a public bashing forum to rant and rave about someone they do not like...... I guess the public credibility of their website is not an issue any longer..... which is likely a good thing. ------ The website in question now contains approx 20 paragraphs addressing what I would have to classify as false and preposterous "edited insinuations" regarding me over the last several years. The true benefit to having a "Safe Place" for this person would seem to be that nothing they say there can be directly or indirectly addressed. That is apparently the only way that one posting false claims can claim to be "right". The absurdity includes a claim "My only choice left was to use my own site and space paid for by me, not a benefactor like Mr. Orkney's" So with no knowledge whatsoever, this individual appears to be claiming that someone other than myself supports my website by paying for the web hosting. I guess there is some truth to the statement "Ignorance is Bliss!". After all, why bother with reality when one can just make up "facts" in their own head? ROTFLMFAO. (Read more)

  1. For what it is worth, the original Loetz.com website built by Eddy Scheepers had a decor page, and on that page n the 1905-1920 date range there was a page for "Tango". The Tango pages basically showe...
  2. That meaning was emphasized by the Tango exhibit. Prior to that it was more accepted to be a two color combination.
  3. Up until about 2012 the accepted definition of Tango was a solid body piece with a contrasting rim, rigaree etc. In 2012 the Tango exhibit in the Czech Republic changed the perception of what we cal...
  4. Based on what I know now, I would agree that this is most likely Welz production in the decor I am calling Malachite. I am glad to see it now.... Also adds a new shape.... Thanks for posting it aga...
  5. The issue had more to do with the fact that no piece in that ad had the same shape, or the same applied rim decor. Although the piece appears to be represented in that ad, the majority of examples ...
  6. This green piece, and Alfredo's example, are absolutely not present in that Butler ad. Any inference that it is is absolutely incorrect. This image link should support my statement beyond any doubt....
  7. These are very cool pieces which are really uncommon. Great example in a fabulous size.
  8. Gorgeous vase Frank!!
  9. Regarding your comment about true images, I could not agree more. If comparing images which are not exactly alike, one must study and look at enough images to understand what different perspectives do...
  10. Cool piece. The light blue is unusual... Love it!
  11. I missed something in the quote, so here it is in full. A small detail, but missing none the less. "Down: In the centre black vase with layers of white opal, Vereinigte (United) Glashüttenwerke (G...
  12. The basket in the case to the left on the bottom is Welz. Those two bottom ones on the right are not Welz production. The case label reads: "Down: In the centre black vase with layers of white ...
  13. Great pics.... So very cool you got to go visit Passau!!
  14. In light of the claim by the owner of the vase, that the removed example in question is not by Welz, but by some other unknown house, I am providing a link to an image which will allow forum members t...
  15. In many cases it always comes down to a variety of details, with shape being one of them.... But I have to guess that by now you are quite used to that.... :-)
  16. As I am sure you are aware, the list of Czech firms known to use gadgets in production is rather short. An applied rim with no pontil mark is a sure fire indication that a gadget or snap tool was used...
  17. This color combo on this shape really pops..... Great find......
  18. This kind of marbled decor has always been interesting to me. Although I have tried for a long time to determine the source, the answer has escaped me for years. I used to suspect that it may be Welz,...
  19. The table is covered with designs created with very small inlay pieces. It is a small three legged table with a spindle support, and a top that is about 20 inches or so in diameter. Overall it is abou...
  20. Family histories are fascinating..... At one point when my daughter was around 4 years old she was having open heart surgery for a defect that she was born with. Her mom and I were divorced. I had t...
  21. Thank You Watchsearcher. The family history is very "colorful". I worked in a department store at one point in my 30's in the Seattle area, selling consumer electronics. I worked with a guy from New J...
  22. Hi Fran. It is hard to say for sure with this style of production, but this style strikes me as post WWI in terms of the date.
  23. I would lean towards Kralik for this one, but can not say for sure. Not by Welz as far as I know, and not really Rindskopf's aesthetic.
  24. Great find! I would be quite shocked if this was not Welz production. It is a great shape, and one I have not seen before. Love it!!
  25. This has always been an interesting form to me. I used to go to an antique mall in Seattle that had one of these in red, white and blue on blue legs. That one had no mark on it.
  26. Thanks everyone for the comments and Loves.
  27. Thanks to all that stopped by and commented or clicked "Love".
  28. Thanks Thomas and Harry! And thanks to all that stopped by and commented or clicked "Love".
  29. Thanks Thomas! And thanks to all that stopped by.
  30. Great piece!! I think it is important to keep in mind, that although almost all of these types of flowers are attributed to Kralik, there were other companies that made them, including Aarhus Glass ...
  31. The image is based on Nordic mythology. Here is an excerpt from a description of a war between Nordic gods. I tried several times but finally made out that it said MIMIRQUELL "Peace settled in Aas...
  32. I reread my comment and realized that I inadvertently misspelled the name, as I know it has no first "i".
  33. The first vase right of center in that ad, that looks like stacked donuts, is definitely a Welz shape. It is seen in both the tripod form like the ad, and also as a vase without legs in a position re...
  34. I love love love this décor in these colors!!! Great catch!!
  35. Thanks for the explanations Kevin, and thanks for all of the accurate information..... and thanks for the link to the article. Cumbersome to translate, but a great read!!
  36. I meant ZBS not ABS. :-)
  37. So the vase was made by both ZBS and Mistisov, but the production at ZBS was after his passing as a tribute, as an homage so to speak, to his time at ABS. Any suggestion that it is a Klinger design, o...
  38. Wow..... Looks like Spiritbear offered some good advice......
  39. Thanks to all that have stopped by to love or comment on my post.
  40. I love these, and if I am not mistaken, they used the same form for a Shade.
  41. Hi Phil. No, the interior looks black on this one, but it is a kind of cross between red and brown with a very bright light shining through it. It is a color they have used on a couple of other pieces...
  42. Great pic!! Love this!!
  43. Sklo42 If you are referring to me, there is already a multiple paragraph "mention" of me on the site, and I get mentioned by name all of the time on her site. At one point 11 of 31 pages on their we...
  44. I agree completely, and have always felt that any opinions, stated as facts in a forum such as this should be supported with evidence. I saw the "discussion" you are referring to, and can tell you tha...
  45. Personally, I have always taken it as an indication that they do not have the knowledge of the subject to actually carry on a strictly fact based conversation... but hey.... That's just my take on it.
  46. SammyZ...... I guess it is out... I am a closet basket collector.... :-)
  47. In my first comment I made a statement of "these vases". That was meant to identify vases with an embossed mark, and not a group of vases just like this one in this post.
  48. These are actually referred to as a Clamshell, and are generally attributed to Seguso. This is a great find in a wonderful and uncommon color combination. Nice Find!!
  49. Fascinating story...... How times have changed.....
  50. Great table!! When I ran an auction for a living, we would get tile top table of this style in on occasion. Almost always California tile companies. Some were metal frames and some were wood. The thi...
