  5. I have never seen this shape of vase before..... I am not sure if Harrach did a ribbon edge of clear like this vase has... I wish I could tell you more, but I am at a loss. It does bear a resemblanc...
  6. Hello Weena. Post some good pics to show and tell in Bohemian glass and then comment here and I will take a look.
  7. Try investigating Nason. It is Italian.... This resembles some of their Aventurine work although I do not recognize the shape.... but that is a direction I would look. Nice piece....
  8. I have a small vase in this surface pattern that is in a dark blue ground, and has a multi-colored spatter decor.... I will send you a pic.
  9. Thanks Peggy & Michelle, and everyone else. My only intention is to provide what I hope is some insight into one of the methods I have used to research, and successfully identify some Welz producti...

  16. I did not think you were going crazy Penny..... I know you are crazy...... but I also figured out you were talking about some of the pieces in the link.... :-)
  17. Gorgeous piece.... I love this one..... and it seems you understand the world as known by smart men..... A Happy wife makes for a Happy life!! :-)
  18. I agree Rick, and would really love to find an example.... but they are extremely rare to come across..... I wish that example was mine.... but alas... it is not.... :-(
  19. Thanks Lee, Penny and others..... Here is a link to the page on my website showing some really fabulous and artistically unique examples of early Beranek production. It is a work in progress. I...
  20. I would agree that this is Welz production in the Harlequin Honeycomb decor. This particular décor has not been successfully linked to any other production house that I am aware of. It does appear on ...
  21. Thanks..... I would think an oversight... or a rushed order.... but who knows for sure.... Thanks...
  22. Hi Jim. I am curious which one of these has a snapped pontil? Thanks again, Craig
  23. Scott, I would be quite shocked if the two vases were not the same house......
  24. The first three décors I have seen previously. The first and third examples I have seen in this shape. These two decors are ones I can link to Welz though other shapes. The second example is a décor s...
  25. This is the post I found which sparked this post: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/130213-fairy-lamp--clarkes-zebra-design
  26. I posted this, which may be of interest to you: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/149219-snowflake-crimp--a-year-long-study-lo
  27. The shape of the bowl rim in the third image is a rim crimping style I have been looking at for about a year now. I have linked several decors in this style of bowl, and also some vases, to Welz and t...
  28. Nice lamps by the way..... So here is my take on the pieces..... For what it is worth, I would preface it by saying that I do not collect Fairy lamps, but I do study decors and shapes, and have f...
  29. The Palm tree is kinda cool isn't it... I own one in Oxblood spatter.... looks much cooler in this décor
  30. It is not mine Lee, it is Scott's, but I used it with his blessing to post some new findings......
  31. Thank you Jim. I really appreciate that.... I added some comments...
  32. In seeing a better example of the last lamp pictured here, I would say that at present there would be nothing I am aware of in the way of product identified as Welz which would lead me to think that p...
  33. This Rainbault clock is one of my favorite Deco Era clocks..... It is a real stunner!!
  34. Thanks Scott, and I agree. That is one I scratch my head in confusion about all the time...... Your methods do not work, but let me use the same methods in a less strict manner to show why you a...
  35. I have added another example in Oxblood and Green I just acquired. This one is without the wings, but in this documented Welz shape. The height also matches the production catalog measurements.
  36. Thanks everyone..
  37. Thanks Michelle.
  38. Big hugs and kisses from Seattle.......
  39. Here is a link to more Hosch pages on Fairlylamps.com http://www.fairy-lamp.com/Fairylamp/FairyLampAdsCatalogs.html
  40. Great example!
  41. I am referring to his link in his comment.
  42. The vase in the middle to which Charcoal apparently loves to refer to, is actually an example in my personal collection of Welz.
  43. Thanks, I appreciate that.
  44. Great examples!! Would it be OK to copy your pics for use on my website? Thanks, Craig
  45. Thanks Fran, I thought you had seen it right after I asked about using your pics.... and yes.... the collar design is nice.....
  46. I love the two end pieces..... I do not remember seeing the shape on the left end before, and I have not seen the right end piece in that décor..... Great stuff!!
  47. Nice examples....
  48. This appears to be the same decor as this group photo which contains several Welz shapes I consider to be markers. http://cf.collectorsweekly.com/stories/5Q.j9TyuGQY3iCx8kAf.4w.jpg
