Sadly, this forum has devolved, due to extremely poor administrative practices, into a place where leveling personal insults, making blatantly false claims about others, and making threats is apparently acceptable behavior that has been allowed to continue for far too long now. Accusations of criminal actions, threats of involving law enforcement regarding delusional claims of crimes, and talk in the forum by people discussing guns and who they would use them on is absolutely unacceptable. This is a "for profit" website, and providing content to the forum aids in their profit seeking ventures. I choose to no longer contribute posts and content to a forum where such reprehensible actions, which clearly violate their forum rules, appear to be willingly overlooked, in their obvious quest to generate income.

  1. Your selection of examples stands as a fine testament to the benefits of properly and logically applying empirical methodology, when studying glass and curating a personal collection. I absolutely lo...
  2. I have a different approach to comment 1 because I have grown completely intolerant of direct comments which are as you say "disingenuous, aimed purely at causing trouble." I have found through the...
  3. And the best part Leah, is that the knowledge of Welz continues to advance and grow in a sound a supportable way with people literally all over the world understanding the research, and collecting it....
  4. Although many glass houses made a similar crimp which could be defined as an "M crimp", no other house made the shorter form with this drastic of a crimp. There are certainly similar examples which I...
  5. I said nothing disrespectful. I simply disagreed with your factually false and unsupportable claim.
  6. You can "beg to differ" all you would like. The decor is not in any manner solidly linked to Stolzle. That is simply an undeniable fact.
  7. Although this version of Martelé is different from Kralik's, this currently unattributed décor has never been successfully linked to Stolzle production. That is a false and completely unsupportable as...
  8. Nothing changed. As far as I am aware, the catalog (Monograph 59) has never been considered to be Hosch. You may have misunderstood what Alfredo said, or he may have mis-spoken. I would have no way of...
  9. In an effort to make sure people are not misinformed, the publication being referred to as a Hosch Catalog in comment 19, is actually a catalog showing Kralik production. The provided link in that com...
  10. The vase in the ad linked in comment 84 has a ROUND foot. The linked vase in comment 81 has an octagonal foot. They are absolutely NOT the same. The decor on the linked vase in comment 81 has the s...
  11. I do not participate in this forum any longer, but in this case I have made an exception in order to refute the attempt at dispelling a robustly researched Welz attribution. I also do so to respond t...
  12. The Welz and Kralik pages on Kralik-glass.com have both been updated. The only conundrum regarding this decor seems to lay with those that choose to remain ignorant of, and/or ignore robust support...
  13. And when she says there is robing... Is she saying she dresses them in a robe before she shoots them..... WOW... and here I thought the conversation was about the BLM movement. :-)
  14. Man.... am I confused.... Through all of this I did not even realize we were talking about fish. :-) So is Maryjo saying she kills fish with guns? :-)
  15. Maryjo says: "I guess my Taurus CTT40C carbine with stock folded to the right side is 470mm long. is a big joke what you got Wind bag...." All I quite obviously have are two things. One is a m...
  16. Wow Maryjo... an S&W. How thoroughly unimpressive. ROTFLMFAO......
  17. Thanks WesterPA-Collector... You simply keep confirming what I think your views are, but would be removed from the forum if I actually spoke frankly about them. Your politics seem to be like you...
  18. Maryjo - What seems to be your inability to discern the BLM movement, from people that are rioting, speaks quite clearly to your complete lack of understanding, and not to the "mission statement" of t...
  19. My concern with your opinion of me and what I do and say amounts to ZERO. You appear to be a hard right leaning "patriot". I did not in any way advocate for riots. I simply provided a well known q...
  20. How could they have done that....??? You mean there is a political SECTION in a forum that some claim should not have politics..... WOW..... will miracles never cease??? I wonder if our "lefty con...
  21. Until now you mean.... LOL
  22. I don't delete. For a guy that says "I come to this site to get an escape from nonsense like this.", you sure like to talk smack about it.... ROTFLMFAO
  23. And there you go... making assumptions about my politics because I believe everyone should have the same rights...... I told you to quit hiding your wallet..... I would never be as presumptive as...
  24. You really should quit while you are ahead WesternPA-Collector..... Oops... too late. They are not coming for anything...... but to have the same rights as everyone else.... You can quit hiding...
  25. “A riot is the language of the unheard.” Martin Luther King Jr.
  26. “Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.” – Martin Luther King, Jr. I wholeheartedly support this post.
  27. Neiother this vase, nor the one in the link match eiother of these drawings. they are different products by different houses, and I doubt them to be Rindskopf. The line art may be, but the glass itse...
  28. This decor, specifically the spatter and the patterns in the pulls, reminds me of something I have seen before, but I can not put a finger on it at the moment. I will keep looking for it. It usually c...
  29. I am generally not a fan of silver overly, as I find in too many instances the metal detracts from the glass. This does not do that at all. It is light and elegant to match the form, and compliment...
  30. I have to look at it some more, and also look at my image library.... :-)
  31. I would also add that in the Harrach volume being used, the colors of Burgundy and/or Oxblood are not mentioned as the colors available for Missouri. The colors mentioned are Rosa, Violett, and Aquama...
  32. My observations and questions were also deleted and referred to as harassment; a cheeky game; boorish argumentative toxicity, a rant, a complaint…. I contend that my comments were on-topic, respectfu...
  33. They are actually nice looking pieces of glass with a dubious history.... :-)
  34. This glass is produced in China for a company that markets under the name of Dale Tiffany, a fictitious name having nothing to do with the real Tiffany.
  35. I doubt that piece in your ebay link is Kralik. Ebay is likely one of the worst tools to try and attribute glass accurately. That sellers listings are riddled with bad attributions.
  36. Glad to help. We bought ours at a garage sale for $5 about 20 years ago, and even then I would have paid 10 or 15 times that for it. Half the fun of collecting is the hunt and the finds... Time...
  37. I do not know that the designer of the vases has ever been determined. I simply know that there is not solid link to Hoffman as the designer. We own an example in the same glass as yours that stands a...
  38. These are great vases, but the link to Hoffman is a wive's tale that has never been shown to be true. Also, the vase is either lead crystal or simply clear class, but it is not Neodymium glass. Ne...
  39. Actually, your vase is quite possibly Mexican glass, and not European at all.
  40. Hi there, I am glad you found my post with the information about the print.... It is a very cool piece. Great story about yours.... :-)
  41. flowers if it is sealed and hllds water... dried flowers otherwise I think.
  42. They should refund it completely. Without the third panel, it is impossible to restore to anything reasonable. It is a shame.
  43. I don't think I have ever known the exact name for these.
  44. I have, and they are kind of cool when restored. Do you have all of the painted glass panels for the base?
  45. When you get it up and running, post some pics... Would love to see it hanging and lit!! Congrats again on the find... That may be the best fiver you've ever spent!!
  46. Glad to help. Vintage lighting is one of our loves....
  47. Hi Ralph. In the first image the inside is threaded as I expected it to be. The threading is odd, but I found a piece of threaded piping on Amazon. I am reasonably sure that the threading in there w...
  48. $5.... You're killing me.... I look forward to the other images.
  49. Your chandelier is a late 1920's - early 1930's Art Deco slip shade chandelier. These are really nice, and quite desirable fixtures. They are generally not seen with the original glass shades still i...
  50. Gee Phil... This is a public forum where folks can ask questions that are within the guidelines of the forum. Leah does not actually have a page. She chooses to post in public. I choose to ask questi...
