Pukeberg 'solifleur' vases
« on: August 11, 2005, 04:35:04 AM »
The Pukeberg soliflor vases are highly reminiscent of Troika Pottery. The vase that Anne gave a link to, is more likely to have come from Walther. Numerous coloured vases, with etikett intact clearly showing the Walther W, appear on eBay Germany, and whilst there are many circular variants, there are also square/rectangular vases.

It would be interesting to have some idea of the number of Pukeberg variants.

Regards,

Marcus

There are two different shaped Pukeberg solifleurs here http://www.classic-modern.co.uk/ceramic6details.htm and the page also refers to the one in Nigel's book, (Nigel Benson "Glass of the 50's and 60's" page 30)  which is the one I've seen most often listed as Pukeberg solifleur.

I had a look on eBay at completed auctions too and there's one that looks very close to the one in Nigel's book but it bears a Waltherkristallglass label - see item no. 7339322841. Two other completed auctions show similar solifleurs...  two vases listed as Pukeberg on item no. 7338629937 and one floral design solifleur also listed as Pukeberg on item no. 7338922201   . It'd be useful to be able to confirm the makers and add any other designs to this list.

Not sure about the classic-modern referenced pieces, but I think all other examples listed on E-bay as Pukeberg or Pukeberg-like (!) are actually Walther glass.

Apologies to David and Anne, for hi-jacking for a new topic.

Not hijacking at all – just expanding an existing topic that I'd taken off-subject!  :oops:  :wink:

I'd agree with Anne about the vase shown in Miller's 'Glass of the '50s & '60s, but that label is very confusing. :? Does this mean there are contemporary versions of Pukeberg solifleur (or what I've always assumed to be Pukeberg) being produced by Walther? Or are they modern-day copies? I also have the solifleur as shown in Nigel's book.

I'd agree with this, Anne!

As I understand it, though no doubt Ivo or Bill Geary, will correct me if I'm in error here, the Walther pieces are contemporary with the Pukeberg, but for how long they were produced??? Generally the Pukeburg are flint, Walthers either clear or with coloured inclusions.

Regards,

Marcus

There are four of the solifleurs on this site identified as Walther - differing sizes - all are of the coloured target type:

If anyone sees the Vikings on sale anywhere would they be kind enough to let me know please? I have found one of the tallest of Ivo's three, and am now looking for the others to join him. :)

Hi,
This is not promoting this sellers auctions.
If anyone is still interested in this topic, then a look at the following sellers' current offers reveals an amazing array of this type of glass.
http://search.ebay.co.uk/_W0QQsassZporzellandealer1976QQhtZ-1
Both Pukeburg and Walther examples are shown.
regards,
Marcus

I'd forgotten all about this thread, but it gives me the opportunity to ask, slightly off-topic, how you pronounce 'Pukeberg'?

Someone used the correct pronunciation recently (at least I assumed it was correct!) and it sounded very weird!

Any ideas? :)
