I can't see the exact link between the label on the candle stick and the 'maze' or spaghetti vase on the left and the Mulhaus label on the other pieces, however I thought I'd put this link on here for reference.
According to Truitts Collectible Bohemian Glass 1880-=1940, Mulhaus was a refiner and existed from 1867 to c.1945. and 'Mulhaus specialised in the decoration of high quality blanks made by the best glass makers- Harrach, Meyr's Neffe and Loetz'. 
I can't see how the 'maze' pieces would have been 'refined' after blowing though?  Surely those pieces were all hotworked blown glass and there is no further decoration?

I agree with everything you say. The link is tenuous unless we know that candlestick label is Mulhaus. The monogram seems to include an M though.

The spaghetti stuff definitely requires no refining.

The label has been confirmed as being Mulhaus.... It is shown under Mulhaus in the Glasmarken Lexicon.  The letters on the lablel J M Co.  Julius Mulhaus Company.

It has also been brought up that many of these opalescent pieces were actually produced by Harrach and distributed by Mulhaus and others. This was brought up by Brian Severn in a conversation on Collectors Weekly. That piece of glass had basically the same pattern as the vase and candlestick shown in the link above.

Here is a link to that conversation.

Thanks Craig  :)
and Ivo's has the same pattern I believe.  So is it still not a definite Harrach id , but still remains as Harrach produced many of these opalescent pieces?  or could this be a confirmed id for Ivo's vase please?

Hi Miranda,

According to Brian, these are Harrach produced pieces.

Many thanks  :)

Craig if you have time can you take a look at this thread please? I just wondered if my vase might help id these pieces because of the shape maybe.

I had seen that, and have been aware of the original piece of glass in that thread for several years now. I have never been completely comfortable with any particular attribution for that piece of glass.

thank you  :)
I'll keep looking.  It's very hard to tell because it could just be that they are extremely close (and we have no daylight here at the moment so I can't double double check again) but I believe it is the same colour and iridescence as the pinky red textured one I posted.

Ivo, this was posted on CW yesterday.
It says the vase is from the 'Floret' line from Harrach c1890.
I believe the pattern is the same or indeed incredibly similar to your bowl :)
