Bohemian glass 1890-1940+ especially multi-coloured tango, bottom-up spatters, yellow gilded or enamelled things, things with silver rims and thorn vases. Not to meBohemian glass 1890-1940+ especially multi-coloured tango, bottom-up spatters, yellow gilded or enamelled things, things with silver rims and thorn vases. Not to mention post-war Chribska. And that is just at the moment. Most of my favourites are (relatively) mass-produced survivors meant for use. I am learning - and, I hope, developing - all the time. I am a professional man living and working on Britain's south coast. (Read more)

  1. From this I would say 1- no, 2-4 possible.
  2. It would be unusual for Czech millefiori vases to have pontil marks at all as they were blown into moulds. Unless what you are describing is a smooth base, from this manufacturing technique? The rim...
  3. Amazing but still no more sure!
  4. I have another in acid red and white but the two together was too, too much!
  5. It looks reminiscent of, but not the same, as pictures of Wunsch for Exbor vases. I am not the person to ask - Vetraio!
  6. I should add there is a row of "hobnails" at the weakest point where the stem meets the body - now these can have no possible decorative purpose apart from being visible at an angle. I think they mus...
  7. There will be more interest on here and you could also try Glassmessages.com.
  8. If you look at my recent posts large cased and loose martele, you can see two ground rims. I am afraid the quality of one of the pics isn't perfect.
  9. I agree with Michelle. If the rim were smooth and rounded, I would think Murano - and possibly 1920s from the shape - whereas we find cased glass such as this from Bohemia would have a rim that was g...
  10. You certainly convince me, Craig, the shapes of the 3 vases are identical to my eye - the only problem is with the ubiquity of yellow and white spatters in different production. The long necks for No...
  11. :-) Alfredo posted on Stolzle - they appear very similar but not in this shape.
  12. I think so.
  13. Love the wall pockets! Giving us all something else to look out for! Ian
  14. Yum! What did I say about our tastes overlapping?
  15. I thought with Austaro and Kevin on board there would have been some answers but obvs unknown, then, or they are thinking the same as me.
  16. Craig, thanks for the mail which shows this shape (tall) in a number of Welz decors. I will try to put them all together and post as a link, if that's ok?
  17. Not yet, Peggy!
  18. Loving the bottom-up spatter. Am I right in saying little UK import ware was marked? I found my first marked piece this week (which I will post) but I even wonder if that has made its way back to he...
  19. That might also help us pin some pre war stuff by region as surely makers drew on what they knew in terms of technique and design?
  20. Is it channelling early Beranek pieces? I think it is interesting looking through post war catalogues looking at pieces makers have referenced or drawn on.
  21. We seem to have very similar tastes, Peggy!
  22. I don't normally do pairs but I think this and other tango ones I have seen which form a sort of diptych or triptych are for me: I would like these better if it was more of a story between the two.
  23. Nice combination of unusual features.
  24. Wonderful.
  25. Great resource, Craig. I am left feeling a bit Welz-ed out! Love the yellow spotty one here.
  26. Love these, Al.
  27. I agree - we seem to do the Victorian a lot better than the later stuff. I don't know whether our home glass industry was just doing good things or economic factors played a part - I have often wonde...
  28. Very exciting stuff. I have some suspicion that there may be one or two for whom nothing short of your resurrecting the entire Welz family and having them sign affidavits will do. It is a privilege ...
  29. Happy Christmas both of you!
  30. Happy Christmas, Kevin. Thanks for all the info and your posts this year. Ian
  31. Trinket pot, dressing table box, powder pot or (at this size biscuit barrel)!
  32. Any info on Riceszinn?
  33. If yours is very black, I suspect it is like my other - very deep amethyst - as I think that is how a deep black is produced.
  34. I have one very similar to yours, apart from the casing glass is much thinner. The dark spatter is very dark amethyst, rather than deep, inky blue, on mine. I have a few inky blue satin coral vases ...
  35. I am sorry to read about your friend's death. Glass, for me, and some others, is a huge repository of memory and moment. Whether the moment of seeing and buying, or as a present, or whatever. So th...
  36. Don't know but looks good.
  37. Love it!
  38. But... http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/141777-czech-inkwells-determining-provenance-i?in=442 Now I am confused! One of those Czech houses anyway!
  39. I have deleted 4 last posts, which I did not think added any more to the above. In 2 years of collecting, this debate has bubbled and simmered. There have been people who claimed that Franz Welz w...
  40. Found it! Woo.
  41. Thanks, Racer.
  42. Woo - just found it - very special.
  43. Have you posted the one fourth from the right on here? That, like your current, is very nice.
  44. Thanks, Craig, who would have known my normal default position actually correct on this one!
  45. Anne, it isn't cameo glass but I appreciate your comment.
  46. One of my very early passions was (and remains) heraldry. That said, there are enormous differences between UK and continental heraldry...I think, however, I am on the right track.
  47. This is more recent than the Victorian period - the sticker suggests 1960s or later - someone on here may be able to be more precise. The Mary Gregory style has been produced for over 100 years. I k...
  48. Thanks, Kyle. So Welz-y, Kralik-y, unknown pile!
  49. Warren, I think the lions salient are actually a rather loose "antik" lions rampant - much more likely to support a shield. The execution of heraldic forms even by experienced draughtsmen in the roco...
  50. Thanks, both!
