Title: Harrach? - Overshot and ruby basket,ribbed,applied uranium glass leaves,flowers
Post by: flying free on October 12, 2012, 11:22:44 PM
I had thought this was probably Kralik, but judging by the photograph on the far right of this link to a set of photos and looking at the part picture of the bowl/vase on the left of that display cabinet, I'm wondering if my basket might be Harrach?
The trailing leaves are uranium glass.  The base is slightly donut indented and the pontil mark in the middle of the indent is neatly snapped off.
Can anyone confirm please?
Many thanks

Interesting,not seen an overshot basket before,couldn't say if it was Harrach but most probably Bohemian, ;D ;D

Looks very similar,love those jugs,got a couple of baskets with similar flower decor' but don't think they have the quality to be Harrach,you must have some great shops near you,it's useless here ::) ;D ;D

 No not really Keith to be honest - and it's damaged.  I've been collecting for years but never looked for the items I really love now - the 20s/30s French pieces mainly and some Bohemian ones and my Studio collection - and I wonder how many passed me by in that time when I wasn't looking carefully enough.  I find less and less glass now and certainly fewer of the unusual pieces - or the internally decorated pieces that are my favourites.
My collection is changing (we are going to downsize in the short/medium future and I will not have room to display my glass when that happens) and I'm trying to end up with just a few pieces (maybe 50 lol) and just have those key items.  But I find it hard to sell the others when I can see that there is just much less around.
And contemporary glass is  way out of my price range for the most part now, although I would love to add a couple more new pieces as well of course :)
btw I saw a bell today in an antiques shop - nowhere near as beautiful as yours, clanger had been pasted back in etc, and they were asking 38.00 for it.
Perhaps my overshot basket is Kralik?  I need to have another good look at the books I think.

I think Harrach is more likely. The pinky white flowers are pretty common but the overshot isn't, neither is the spikey handle, which tend to be on the more unusual baskets

thanks Christine - interesting regarding the spiky handles, I shall have a good trawl round looking for those now, another feature to use the magnifying glass for when looking at the book pictures  ::).  I think it is very close to that Harrach basket and I agree I think it probaby is Harrach rather than Kralik. btw I love your id of 'Weird or what?'  ;D
I find baskets a bit of a strange item per se
