2 New Decors, 2 New Sections and many new articles!
70% of those who visited Loetz.com and took our survey indicated that they are “collectors”. When asked: “What additional services would you like to see on our website?”, over 42% indicated that they would like to see a section that included “Guest articles written by glass experts/collectors”.
In response to this request we have added a new section: “Featured Articles”. One of the first articles written for this new section is by Warren Gallé, Jr. It is an interesting read on the history of the English registration mark, Rd 76057, which has been found on some Octopus and Victoria vases. If you would like to submit an article that would be of interest to other Loetz collectors, please contact us.
We have also added another section that will discuss the various Loetz, “Designers” and their importance and impact on the production of Loetz art glass. This section will be growing as Tony Ellery adds the new articles that he is working on to this section.
In our “Identifying Loetz Art Glass” section we have added two articles on “Loetz Signatures”. These articles cover the signatures, marks and labels that Loetz applied to their glass Pre & Post 1918.
Finally, the Loetz Advisory group is delighted to be able to donate our time to conduct research and add new content, but everyone’s help is needed to keep this site a non-for-profit endeavor with free access to all visitors 24/7. If you agree and haven’t already done so, please click the “Donate” button at the top of our home page. Your contribution helps to save the history of this amazing art glass and makes this information available to everyone. Thank You!
