Bohemian stem or not?
« on: January 18, 2013, 04:18:30 PM »
I have a set of stemware that I thought was bohemian due to the style. The more I researched the more unsure I became. The stems are about 5 3/4" high, the bowl about 3 3/4" wide. Thank you.

They are something special. If Czech/Bohemian certainly not standard fare

I have another set but I don't want to be a thread hog so I'm posting it here. Forgive me in advance if this is wrong. This stemware glows like mad under uv light.

Hello Penelope  and welcome :)
please could you post your new glasses in a separate thread as otherwise it becomes difficult for the mods trying to separate out replies if one set is identified.
many thanks

Thank you. I'll start a new thread for the 2nd glass stem. Sorry for the trouble.

both glasses have quality Penelope - very nice  -  and welcome from me also. :)
May we please see a pic of the underside of the foot on the cut to clear champagne saucer/coupe - and you may be correct that this is Bohemian/Czech, although not my area, so hope someone is able to help you with a date guide.

the glass with uranium bowl has an unusual stem/foot arrangement, and it may be difficult to provide attribution/provenance.    Can you give some idea of the amount of wear on the feet of these pieces please. :)

Were these auction purchases?

I'm in the process of starting a new thread for the green stem...

As for the purple stem, below is a picture of the underside.
