Hi, Anita - I was referring to yours - I haven't a clue about the other one. Out of curiosity, can you tell me what the measurements are (height, width, and weight)? Thanks for your note about the site - I am still trying to figure out what I'm doing and where I want to go with it, so I'm glad you find it useful.

By the way, Gallé is my last name - you can call me Warren. :)

Warren, the vase is 15.7 cm tall and 8.1 cm at the widest point. The inner rim diameter is 2.6 cm. It weighs 221 g.

A couple of years ago I had a few Loetz carneol vases and saw some vases that were similar to the carneol pieces. I ran across a believable reference that attributed the glass to Harrach. The reference stated that the vases may have been made to look like the carneol vases. I cannot remember what reference I may have been using, however, so I am uncertain. I really think I need a couple of books to remind me of what reference to look in for information. Any ideas? I have spent a good bit of time trying to track down the source.

Not sure on the reference. I will keep an eye out as I am reading and re-reading.

But the decoration is the only part that is somewhat Harrach like, it's an average weight, the lining is not uranium salted (I know it was only salted until 1890 or something like that and this piece is probably later so this point may not be relevant) the neck is sloppy looking, the decoration is similar to Harrach but then Harrach blanks were decorated by lots of different people so it is safe to assume that the same factories that decorated Harrach decorated other glasshuttes as well.. the blank quality just doesn't seem that high to me.

I am puzzled. We must be looking at the vase in different ways. You may be expecting more than I am from the vase. IME, the quality of Harrach pieces is variable. This is a simple, pretty vase that is fairly well made, though not a masterpiece.

It certainly isn't run-of-the-mill spatter. I like it quite a bit- nearly bid on it myself.

You were lucky not to have bid. It has an undescribed nick on the bottom edge. If I had known, I would definitely not bid as much. I'm just glad I didn't bid more.
