Photo 9 shows two vessels. 8 ¾" and 8 ¼", in still another shade of green with maroon surface (rather than fused) threading. A variant of the taller vase appears in PMC IV: 408, under "anonymous production," with the same decor as the vessels in Photos 26-27 below.

Photo 10, a monumental 19" green threaded vase.
Photo 11, the same vase, from a pink group showing PK’s outstanding casing technique. There are four layers of glass: orange/white/clear, finishing with a layer of pink on the outside (See also PMC IV:283; Truitt 105:2-4; Brohan 191:271 to 194,277:).

Photos 14-16 show pieces in ruby red or deep purple. Photo 14: a smaller version of this 13" ruby red--which I affectionately call "the strangled duck"--appears in Truitt 104:2, and a larger version in Brohan 206: 303.  Photo 15 shows two 7" vases with PK’s trademark handles. The four-handled purple vase appears in Brohan 201:288; another version with flowers, in PMC IV:289; a three handled version in Pazaurek/ Spiegel, 46:63, classified as Loetz.  Photo 16: This 4" vase is featured as PMC IV: 287.
