Loetz? Console Bowl
« on: May 03, 2015, 04:02:21 AM »
Hi, I am new to this forum, but was hoping someone with a bit more knowledge than me could give me some more information about this piece.

I am established EBay seller, and at a recent estate sale I recently I acquired a large (15" diameter) console bowl with 6 applied ball feet.

I just listed it ~ Here is a link to the listing:

  http://www.ebay.com/itm/301618154426?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

It is a brilliant transparent uranium yellow color, and has the appearance of true Vaseline glass in normal lighting. But here is the odd thing, at least to me,but I am by no means a glass expert. When a black light is placed near the sides or underneath the bowl it glows a most brilliant flourescent green, however if the light is held over the top of the bowl it doesn't glow AT ALL. If anyone could help me out as to the cause of this, and if it truly is Vaseline glass I would be grateful.
And one other thing, if anyone could tell me if this is truly a Loetz piece, it would be extremely helpful I have spent hours, (8+), trying to find a similar piece and have been unable to do so, thus far.
All indications with the mark point to it being made by Loetz, but I am not certain. It has a fire-polished rim, a ground pontil, and an acid etched mark on the pontil of CZECH- above the word SLOVAKIA in block letters within an oval circle.

THANK YOU in advance for any help you might give me.

Hello and welcome to the board.

I have moved your topic into the Market Place forum as it includes a link to your live eBay listing. If you read the forum description you'll see that such posts should only be made into this forum even if asking for help with an identification.

We don't have a problem with you asking for help in ID'ing items before you list them, in fact we encourage this, but once listed any such request will be moved here without notice if made anywhere else on the board.

You may find it helpful to read the posts in the Help and Info forum also - http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/board,22.0.html -  but if you are unsure of anything please do feel free to ask.  :)

Thanks for the heads up. Sorry. I actually was not going to list it until someone replied, but I was having trouble uploading pictures to the forum, so I thought that would be the best way for the pictures to be seen.
I would still appreciate any further info on this piece if anyone has any to offer. :)
