From a family who were experts at manipulation, and blaming others when they were the culprits. Sound familiar? ---------- There is another older email from Mr. O. to me, that spells out his accomplishments toward getting rid of the people that disagreed with him on that public website. He names them, and gloats to me that I am next, as he is such an efficient and successful bully in the virtual arena. I made a point of forwarding it to the people involved. ---------- Another of his proudest virtual roles, is being asked to be an administrator of a glass group or two or three on Facebook and elsewhere. This makes me laugh as most people want nothing to do with this sort of policing other members, and laying the law, or the group rules with vigilance. I was asked too and refused politely. I can't think of anything more unpleasant than following what other people do, and letting them know what's what. I would rather deal with difficult issues one on one, as I am doing here." ------ Added to my favorite site on 7/11/19 Posted in CW 07/11/19 -------- I would first comment that my critic's interpretation of the content of the emails she has received from me over the years are misconstrued..... a little dramatic, a lot victim like, and a lot of self-serving drivel.... I would also comment that being the admin of a very large Art Glass group with over 6000 members from around the world, to include some of the best authorities on a wide variety of glass worldwide, has a distinct advantage if one's desire and objective is not to "enforce rules and watch others", but is to actually learn as much as possible about a wide variety of glass in an effort to further one's knowledge..... While helping to maintain an environment in which people learn. I suppose there are those that would consider it to be a pain, but I view it as an opportunity to learn as much as possible from some of the best in the world....... I guess that is the difference between me and my diehard, true to form, seemingly quite ill informed critic. :-) (Read more)

  1. I have responded to this nonsense several times, and have decided to delete my comments. I will no longer respond to the foolish ramblings of an individual who thinks she is being persecuted on the in...
  2. Your Coltrane LP was released as a first issue in 1957. The label on your copy of the LP indicates that this pressing was produced in the period of 1959-1962. Values vary quite widely based on cond...
  3. Hi there, Yes they are UV reactive.....
  4. I love Clarice Cliff!! Fabulous stuff!!
  5. I am so thrilled to see you revel in your new life, new home, and enjoying to the fullest, the things you love!!
  6. Love Love Love this one!! Stellar MCM Atomic!!
  7. This is a great find.... I love this one!!
  8. Love this one. I have not seen this decor on a shoe before either! A great find!!
  9. I have not seen it before, but it shares some fairly distinct characteristics with some Welz pieces. Usually the Welz examples fade from green to light pink. Strong similarities to the back piece in ...
  10. Gorgeous and Extremely Elegant!!
  11. I sometimes wonder if the glass houses made different products (shapes) to sell to refiners. I find it a little unusual, that with the number of unidentified enamel work pieces we see, why aren't mor...
  12. Straight rods of clear glass would be pretty impossible to place in a mold that has curved sides. They would also be very difficult to attached to the sides of a partially blown vessel that did not ha...
  13. What a great find!! Very cool!
  14. Cool piece. How could one pass it up for $1. The motif of the piece would likely lead me more in the direction of Bavarian over Bohemian.
  15. Very cool piece.... whatever it is.... :-)
  16. I do not think you are fluffing the truth to make an impression. I think you are making claims which are in reality false, and can not be factually supported. Big difference. There is absolutely n...
  17. TOD says: "Does it mean that Moser worked for Harrach, in a certain way he did, even before he established his own Carlsbad glass finishing and then his glass production. " Moser did not work for H...
  18. I have never contested that there were interactions between the two firms. The Harrach volume makes that quite clear. Moser purchased blanks and finished production to sell in his shop in Carlsbad po...
  19. Thanks to everyone that stopped by.....
  20. Great examples. It is always interesting to see the examples of early production you identify!
  21. Thought I would mention, none of it appears to be mentioned in Truitt I either.....
  22. Not a friend's effort. Just me. But I appreciate your subtle attempt at a "jab". LOL Take your time..... I am never in a hurry. Facts just kind of sit there without any need to rush.... I t...

  24. Thanks to those that have stopped by. I hope that the post clears up some of the commonly misconstrued information regarding the dating of, or lack of dating, for Welz production in this forum.
  25. I have deleted several comments that made no sense after the forum admins removed comments made by another member that were inappropriate personal attacks.
  26. Don't know how I missed this one.
  27. Yes... Like I said... a very similar lamp...... You have shown a single image of the lamp, given no dimensions, do not show the sockets or any details, and no pic of the underside. If you are loo...
  28. It appears that the original image of a small pair of green variegated vases has reappeared on the post mentioned above, to replace the tall single vase which replaced them in the first place. Maybe m...
  29. Your beautiful lamp appears to be a lamp made in the style of a Tiffany Turtleback lamp and shade. A very similar lamp can be found on overstock.com.
  30. Great find. This is a reasonably uncommon color combination for this decor.
  31. I would add, that even though we disagreed, in this case the conversation stayed primarily on point..... but they deleted in anyway. They are the "self appointed guardians of your sensibility". LO...
  32. Here is the link that I posted before if you did not bookmark it. https://www.glas-musterbuch.de/Meissner-Glasraffinerie.187.0.html
  33. Your English is fine. Your comments were deleted by the forum admins who feel that deleting anything they see as not adhering to their"code of conduct" is not to be left in this forum. It is beyond ti...
  34. Love this. Great to see it on the road again!!
  35. It is one of my favorites!! It is the only one in this decor I have ever seen.
  36. Hi Lichnowsky. I have had it posted in Facebook on Czech pages, Murano pages, general art glass pages, and no one has ever been able to identify it. Japanese has been suggested more than once, but oth...
  37. I think that both the crackle vase, and also the Honeycomb Panel example are the same shape as your overlay example. We see small variations in forms which is normal. These can be attributed to small ...
  38. The small differences in the foot could be attributed to a different mold, or possibly just wear to one that altered the foot shape by softening edges due to wear from hot glass.
  39. I believe your vase is Kralik. I have always stated that unless a spatter decor is extremely unique in appearance, using them to ID glass is a field of landmines. This is the perfect example. In m...
  40. I think it is also noteworthy that the image in the post previously before all of the comments regarding Moser not actually ever working for Harrach were deleted, was a pair of what appeared to be sma...
  41. My pleasure Scott. There are many missteps, especially attributions, in this forum that can be attributed to "opinions", and I generally leave those alone. But something like a completely incorrect h...
  42. Sadly, false signatures on pieces that are authentic are not all that uncommon. It is simply an indication that an ethically challenged seller did not know enough about the item they were selling to i...
  43. These are interesting pieces, and are quite reminiscent of a vase I have owned for many years and have never been able to identify. This example stands at 16.5 inches tall and is approx 7 inches in di...
  44. I would add that the group shot is fabulous, and shows a nice variety of Welz production on a great assortment of pretty distinctive shapes by them.
  45. Love this in yellow..... Great find!!
  46. Now that is a stunner... Love the shape of this one!!
  47. Identifying the maker may be near impossible. The industry was saturated with refiners, both small and large, and this is likely a blank by one company, purchased and decorated by another one.
  48. An unusually and unique example of the shape. Nice score...
  49. I did not know this, and only discovered parts of it when Peggy and I traveled to Texas to buy a home. I have done more research since we moved. There was actually a large immigration of Czechs to Tex...
  50. For what it is worth, the use of crystal in glass that is used in color production provides no real benefit for the additional cost. Lead is used to create crystal with a high clarity and refractive i...
