Martelé pattern but which factory?
« on: September 05, 2005, 11:58:39 PM »
These two vases are Bohemian with highly iridized Martelé surface pattern – I know the bowl is called ‘Nautilus’ style – at first I thought both bits were Kralik, but I have seen Loetz on some sites very similar (forget ‘Great Glass’) – to confuse matters more I have been told that was also done by Rindskopf and Pallme-Koenig – so what are these?

They are same factory, you can tell that from the green rim through to the base mark

Also here is a more difficult one, is contemporary with the two above, I have seen similar designs in Loetz and have a feel it is Bohemian but again what factory – green with concave pontil and lovely hand crafted swirls – to touch it and feel how fine and delicate it is

Need some old fashioned help here

BTW how is Kralik selling on eBay these days – I had these two items in Q on a month ago and they failed to sell at £40 and £50 which seems weird, maybe it was the wrong attribution?

Did you look on www.justglass.com ?  One of the co-owners, Reyne, is a specialist in this type of glass.

Here is a link to that category -

You might also want to browse this site -

It is mainly Loetz but I believe he has other pieces also.  The owner of the site, David was very helpful to me with a Loetz vase that I have.
