Hi,
 Another MDG vase............ pattern number 7031 with a label.

A surprise gift given to me at the Glass Fair by my good friend Rosie.   It is superbly made and is yet another example of their work.

Thank you Rosie for finding it .  :)

Glass / Re: Stevens & Williams Harrach or Moser
« Last post by Mike M on February 27, 2015, 09:27:20 AM »
The ones that 'appear' as Moser are almost certainly all on Harrach blanks - just enamelled/finished at Moser

It could be Harrach but the flowers are a bit odd - Harrach hot applied flowers tend to be opaque

I'd go with almost anyone else - French, British or Bohemian  -copying a common style

sorry

Interesting -I missed the information that signatures do not exist post 1903 (makes sense)- but where is that stated?

Also, although it wasn't only export pieces that were signed,  I thought the vast majority of signatures were probably due to export (predominantly to US not at that time rest of Europe) in fact I thought the only others were for exhibitions and other special occasions.

Thanks for the explanation re the signature, several sites mention wheel-engraved .... but obviously this is a way of describing that particular signature.

But we haven't got a straight side on profile with the flat side at the top. That is what I would like to see please
Like this; taken so your camera is eye level with the plinth. Your other profile is at an angle

I hope I'm wrong but I always thought the signature had to be wheel-engraved and not diamond-tip signed? ???

While I do not normally buy Loetz since 75%+ of the Loetz in U.S. antique shops & malls is actually Rindskopf & Kralik, I have looked into the signatures "deal" over the years just in case. Loetz signatures were engraved using a  high oscillation engraving needle...a wheel was not used. Secondly while one example exhibits characters that are broad to the point of being misshapen & carries what are purported to be lines under high magnification thus proclaiming this is what all signatures should look like, there are advanced knowledgable collectors that believe this is not the case that there were variations possibly by use of different equipment/methods over the years although everyone does agree signed pieces should not exist past 1903. I don't get into these debates between parties as to which is the correct view...you cannot win. Of course it was orginally believed that signed pieces only existed on exports which now has proven to be incorrect. The signature on mine is engraved to a significant depth & is relatively broad in character so I am not overly concerned when comparison to others are in the ballpark.

Thanks Mike...I revisited the patterns & you are correct...I just could not visualize the differences with my bifocals...thats a better explaination than admitting its an age factor. Again Mike most appreciated. Ken
