Lovely as they are, collectors need to be aware that these are turning up on Ebay described as Loetz and even some with spurious signatures I believe.

Indeed he should be proud of his work and I can see a day when these will be collected in their own right.

Truly it looks like real quality and I wouldn't mind owning some. Terry

These are gorgeous! I can't find any way of buying them, though!

I have a piece of this glass, and it is signed by the artist.  It's very well made, and the craftsmanship is high quality, but someone experienced in Loetz wouldn't be fooled by a Muller piece IMO.

Most of it is signed from what I've seen, but I believe some unscrupulous individuals are resigning them as Loetz   :evil:

The only place I've seen to purchase these is on eBay.

Ok that's what must have happened. Thanks for that Brian.

We have a lot more inexperienced collectors here Brian (me included).
I would easily be fooled by these but unlikely to pay Loetz prices  - so that keeps me "safe"  :D
Going by the amount of stuff headlined as Loetz on Ebay I would be careful but even I could be tempted by a piece that looked the real deal at below the going rate (whatever that is).

Yes these look very well made and I wouldn't say no to a piece just because it was recently made. It fascinates me though that you should have a piece, Brian !
For comparision ? Just becuase you just like it ?

Hi Peter,

I bought it about seven or so years ago.  The piece I have I truly love. It's a copy of a wonderful Loetz vase.  If it was  real, the value would be, well let's just say I could probably take the rest of the year off comfortably ;-)

But honestly I bought it mostly due to the curiosity of what their glass was like, and felt it was important to acquire an example as a Loetz and Bohemian glass collector.  

If my memory serves me correctly it was all of about $80.  It came in a nice box that had their factory logos all over, and a little card (in Czech) telling about the company.  It's also signed on the base Muller, with a silver foil sticker too, so their definitely not trying to pull the wool over on anyone.   I suspect this is either happening later by someone else, or maybe they will sell their pieces unsigned if requested, I'm not sure.
