The Dreesen book is your best bet for more info, should tell you what they produced and location of any archives.

I live in the  United States. The way I heard is that L. C. TIFFANY sued Loetz because his work was to similar to his.  Thus for only the last 20 years of production was signed.  I have only seen a couple of signed pieces and I do not remember the Technic. I was said that an antique dealer north of us, for $5 her husband  would pull a stylus out of his shirt pocket and signed your piece with any name you want. A lot of collectors in the USA became weary of possible false signatures and stopped buying glass.

 Does any one here know how many workers worked for Loetz?  The glass blowers and decorators. Also the actual years in business?
Thanks, Bob

Hello Rose, looks similar to some Borske Sklo pieces in Mark Hill's book 'Hi Sklo Lo Sklo' dating from the 50s-70s. ;D ;D

Glass / Bohemian Czech DECANTER -- Purple
« Last post by antiquerose123 on February 27, 2015, 12:32:01 PM »
Hi, I recently found this.  I feel in love with the shape but most of all the Color.  Call it Purple or amethyst .  Very striking.  About 15 inches tall with the Stopper.

Any ideas on the maker?

I had posted another something like this same shape (etc) years ago.  They both are very much the same.  Please SEE here

....I kinda like the Purple one better, due to the Color.....LOL

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.
