Thinking these maybe Loetz Rusticana?
« on: March 23, 2018, 01:17:42 PM »
I purchased this pair of 6" vases yesterday from my local junk shop having trawled the web a bit i Am thinking they maybe Loetz Rusticana although the decor seems a little more defined than many i have seen there is also a lot more iridescence on than most, In fact the base of these two are very different one has been ground or polished and the other more molded i guess these are just differences in the process which i would not of expected if they were loetz glass. This is why i thought i would see if anybody else has an opinion on them being Loetz. tHANKS

Not Rusticana and probably not Loetz. Rusticana was very popular so they may well be another company's take on that design, attempting to cash in. One of the other Bohemian makers is likely, Kralik, Rindskopf, Ruckl, no doubt there are others possibilities too.

Some examples of Rusticana.
