Hi Everyone,
Not at all familiar w/PEILL & PUTZLER. Saw the most beautiful bowl at an estate sale preview. Really a very pretty piece. Forgot my cell phone which in essence is my camera! Oh well. It was a frosted bowl with tiny randomly spaced bumps on the exterior that had been sliced off at the tip so they were shiny. Very difficult to describe. It was not marked on the base but on the outside near the rim of the bowl. It looked like two back to back P's but it looked as if it were embossed. What was neat is that no one else even noticed this mark. Could it be PEILL & PUTZLER with an embossed or molded mark?
Many thanks,

yep that's it!

Many, many thanks!  :lol:  Is this considered to be a quality maker that is collectible? Perhaps, I should just buy it (in a few short hours) even though I haven't a clue to its value as it really is unique and beautiful the way the tiny bumps are shaved offThanks again,


Hello Lenore! The piece you are describing sounds like a "Patmos" bit.

I LOVE Peill & Putzler, I reckon it's EXTREEMELY under-rated at the moment.

You've learned you can trust your judgement as far as glass is concerned, haven't you? I've certainly noticed you have "the eye"! 8)

I trust my judgement ( :roll: ), and I collect P&P. :D
(Ivo has some nice bits, too!)

This is the first piece I found. Ivo told me the technique is called Schleiergraphit.

P&P were makers of very high quality tableware, lighting and crystal since around 1950 when Pützler joined Peill. Shortly after the Berlin wall fell in 1989 the old Pützler factory was returned to the original owners, and  part of the production moved there. Due to quality problems (yellowish crystal, delivery times, careless finish etc) the company went under in 1997 - even if the official reason was inability to face competition from mechanised manufacturers. It is  a textbook example how lack of quality can bring down a firm of long standing.
P&P is now reasonably well documented, you can google Horst Tuselmann who was the main designer in the 1960s.
You can also check 20th century factory glass for further reading.
