Yours is even nicer than the browny-yellowy Hortensja pieces I've seen, honest! The overall effect is very "moss- or lichen- growing on stone" - while my blue goblet seems to be slightly streaky.
I wouldn't think it was the same maker, the effect on yours is different... a bit more individual and artistic. :)

The way I understood it from Wrezniak is that they used this technique on any piece if the customer wanted it - and I figure Hortensja was a customer. We've seen these piece surface with labels from everywhere. They're no longer produced now - the cost was prohibitive.

Thanks from me too! :-*
I have seen a large fruit set in this design (which I was sure was Hortensja) - a very large round bowl with 6 smaller - very simple shape, I think the small bowls had applied handles. I didn't buy it, because it was priced at 170, described as Art Deco......

I saw a jug with similar decoration recently, too; the seller claimed it was WMF Lavaluna glass (which it was definately not). But I was rather unsure if it was recent Polish, or a turn-of-the-century Josef Knizek piece...
How would you tell the differnce?

Thanks ;D

Well at least I have a vague idea how WMF Lavaluna should look like (having seen 2 pics in the WMF Ikora book)

Now, minus the strapping, that is just like the browny-yellow Hortensja.  :)
It may take a little time, but I can track down images of my old "beaker".
