I had looked at >> this site before I started the thread about this piece, but somehow managed to miss picture Nr. 21 8)

So mine seems to be a drinking glass, not a vase...
I am not sure if the author thinks the water set is Knizek/Antonienhütte, or Polish/Wrzesniak.

I don't think so. The caption above says 'these two are documented Knicek' but the one underneath says
'and a water set from the internet' ...no commitment as to whether or not it actually is Knicek
However, it might be good to email with your piece and perhaps a link to this thread.

Piece number 18 is a match for the beaker-vase I had - and I can see my goblet in the cabinet of glass above number 21!
The cabinet seems to be labelled thus;

"KNICEK GLASS
Knicek glass is quite distinctive.  The PANDORA glass line, consisting of metalic reduction of enamels, was created by master enamel artist Maximilian Boudnik.  it is quite difficult to find in this country."

my goblet has its Hortensja plastic label still on it.

To what country might the cabinet label refer when is is saying it is difficult to find?
Cheers, Sue (M)

The site is Alfredo's and I think the comment is referring to finding it in the USA

If even the Passau museum can't tell the difference between Knizek and Polish ;D

edit: just found the original sale of the water set my glass belongs to: http://www.ernstgaleria.hu/english/antiques/stuff25.html
Attributed to Maximilian Boudnik...

well can I ask, are we absolutely sure it is not M.Boudnik?  The effect on your glass and that set is not exactly like Sue's or the others that have been id'd as Polish is it?  or am I confused?

The water jug is on page 2 labeled 11-329 1.5L h220 in the Huta Szkla Gospodarczego Tadeusz Wresniak catalogue of 2000.

Yup, yours is the old one (c1900) while the Hortensja (which does look different - the effect is less fussy on the older ones).

Umm - Have I got it right? ;)

I think they are both new Sue - Ivo has said the water jug in that set is featured in the Huta Szkla Gospodarczego Tadeusz Wresniak catalogue of 2000. And your goblet is labelled.
It might be nice to email Alfredo as I'm sure a firm id on those pieces would be welcomed.  It will help sort out any further pieces attributed to Knicek that might turn up and which might not be.  Might be a good idea to email the Passau as well.
