|Nola (Pompei), Inwald|
|This pattern, by the Czechoslovakian maker Josef Inwald, has incised zig-zag shapes on panels. The pitcher was photographed while in Nola Smocker's collection in 1994 and was named by Richard Cinclair for her. The dresser set pieces are courtesy of Galen and Kathi Johnson. The only reported piece to sell publicly was a 5 1/2 inch tall cologne bottle in marigold that brought $105 in 2001. In 2005, on eBay, a group (tumbleup, 2 colognes/perfumes, covered box, pin tray, and ring tree), sold for $760.|

The Nola vase (at left) is impressive in both its size and weight. It stands 10 inches tall and weighs 3.5 pounds. Purchased on eBay in 2006 by Bob and Sandy Sage of Texas, it is one of only two known (at this time) in the 10-inch size. The other 10-inch vase had been purchased a few months earlier by Glen and Steve Thistlewood. A smaller, 7.5-inch version of the vase has been found in Europe. Glen and Steve report that a 12-inch version is shown in a Markhbeinn catalogue of Inwald's glass. The pattern has also been called Panelled Twigs. Photo courtesy of Sandy Sage.
The tumbler shown in the upper left of the catalog page above, 8750, with the same diamond-shaped base as the pitcher, is shown in four sizes in a catalogue extract on Glen and Steve Thistlewood's site.
