Bohemia, Czechoslovakia, Czech Republic, Austria / Riedel Panther paperweight.
« Last post by Anne Tique on November 13, 2018, 07:41:53 PM »
Hello,

As i am new to Bohemian glass, I just wanted to show my second find. I did not know at the time what I was buying but recognised a certain quality. As i waited for it to be delivered, I managed to identify it  through a well known on-line source who was happy to authenticate it through some images. It's by Joseph Riedel and dated 1880-1885.

It's a bit knocked here and there and in between the panther and the black glass base, there's a layer of some metal foil that has corroded with time, and now gives a yellowy/orangy glow to the piece. It's only a tiny little thing, 11,5 cm long, 5,5 cm wide and 7 cm in height.

I decided not to clean it completely, I think it looks nice a little aged.

Merlin Glass.
Hi all and thanks for your replies. Iíve been having another look at this and still felt it looked like some Liskeard weights. I see after Liam Carey bought Liskeard Glass in 1983 he renamed it Merlin Glass and Iíve seen Merlin Glass weights only have a paper label.

I sent Merlin Glass an email today with photos showing the overall design and pontil scar with a description of the five segments and large central bubble. Carol got back to me very quickly with a nice email saying that Liam believes he made it but couldnít remember when but it was a few years ago now. Thatís good enough for me, very pleased!

While in my local antiques centre this morning, looking for some handles for a chest of drawers I am restoring I spotted these three. The flower pattern looks different so not sure if they are what you are looking for.

Wow, that top one is beautiful!

I don't really recognize the flower pattern though, but the handles.... I am pretty sure it had handles.
This is at least very close to the one we lost, I'd love to buy it.

Do you resell items like this? Does that Antique shop sell online at all?
Do you have a phone number I can call? Maybe I can pay with CC over the phone and have it shipped.

You're located in Europe, correct?

Hi I haven't been on here for a while  but I thought I would just update on my vase I asked about 6 years ago in case someone comes across it. I believe I've eventually solved its id as I came across a near identical image on loetz.com which shows an identical vase PN-II-184 DEK I/12

I suspect Walther glas is more likely to turn up in charity shops in Europe than in Canada.

Checking online auctions would be your best bet. There is etsy as well as the better known one. But you may find yourself forced to use certain specific payment methods you might not be happy about. There's a closed-shop corporate monopoly.

But it's entirely up to you which pattern you chose to buy to replace the bit you lost.

The roses only come with a pink tint or no colour at all. I've never seen a multicoloured one. They are far more common than the other flower patterns too.

You might want to try Ebay.de for a Carmen platter but I was under the impression you were looking for the same pattern as the tray.

Just in case Ö

https://www.ebay.com/itm/192642670166

Your link looks exactly like our round tray, except that ours is completely round.

I'm sorry, the problem I'm having is that I didn't have any pictures of the tray, and when I looked at the large round tray I assumed the patterns must have been the same, because I thought they were matching pieces.

However, now I am second guessing this because of how familiar the other rose pattern platter is.

I am very new to this world, and I don't know the first thing about items like this.
I'm not much of an online shopper either, so I'm a little deficient at these sorts of things.

I guess I'll start checking charity shops.
