  1. I for one am always open to a reasonable debate and discussion of an attribution. It seemed, at least to me, that the draped decor being exclusively Kralik had early beginnings with the claim that ...
  2. Take care of yourself first.... talk about glass after.... I am never in a hurry. Be Well.
  3. I will look through my images and see if I can find it (them). At this point I simply remember seeing examples at least a couple of times. Sometimes I think I am filing them in a manner that will mea...
  4. Here is my take on this vase and the ad. This vase is found with both a straight line mark and also with an arched mark with open o's. The ad in which the piece is shown consists of all known Krali...
  5. I have about a dozen varying pieces of Welz from different periods which are in the 9 - 14 inch range, with about half of those in the 10 - 11 inch range. So size alone would not preclude them from b...
  6. Scott, I did not think it came across that way... I simply wanted to make sure my intentions were not misconstrued, as they seem to be by some, on occasion. For me, it really is only about the gl...
  7. The decors and shapes are great. Never seen either of them before.
  8. Fran, Scott sent me an email with a question and some pics because a seller said the two pieces went together. I took one look at the pics he sent me and went Duh.... it was one of those moments whe...
  9. I agree that the piece in the linked image in the décor like EZa's from Jericho's post is the same as Tom's. It is also interesting that as the Tango exhibition moved, some of the pieces in the cab...
  10. I also want to be clear that all I am trying to do here is discuss differences in shapes that I see, and not show who is wrong or who is right. I have been studying shapes daily for over 10 years, and...
  11. Here is a comparison of the two shapes side by side. I tried to crop one to show the region where the neck starts on both examples. Hope this helps clarify what I see in comparing the two. http://...
  12. I have no idea why my one comment appeared three times. Maybe Tom can delete two of them and this one.
  13. In looking at the pic of the base (pic 3) it almost appears that the circular plug is inside of the base top where the pillar appears to insert into the base. Hard to say for sure, but it looks that w...
  14. Most noticeably, the Rückl case piece has a much thinner width of the neck, and also has one additional partial ring at the top of the body that Tom's piece does not have.
  15. Although similar, the two examples are actually different shapes. Possibly by the same house, possibly just quite similar shapes.
  16. What I love is that 5 months ago we did not even realize, after seeing the separate pieces for years, that they went together. It was a question from Scott that started this whole thing off.... Now p...
  17. Really nice examples in a very unique ground. This first image link below shows a vase in draped in a green and pink décor which can be linked to Welz. It is in the draped décor also. http://www...
  18. Very Nice!!
  19. I meant to add before, but forgot. The inclusions in the glass which you referred to as Mica are actually Copper crystals. What you have in this piece of glass is actually Aventurine by the true de...
  20. The base looks to me to be Mercury glass. Interesting pair for sure.
  21. Hi there, and welcome to CW. Regardless of who made it it is a very pretty piece you have there. It is rather small in size and could well be part of a dresser set. Threaded or veined decors are ...
  22. I wanted to add that I think that having images like this available for collectors to study is important. One of the reasons is that it allows for the subtle differences seen in the same shape, as a r...
  23. When you see group shots of a shape like this, it really brings to light how aesthetically unique some of the Welz Deco Era décors really were. Great pics!!
  24. nice colors....
  25. Tom is trying to be the "Blue Angels" of Czech glass collecting to see how many different and unique color "formations" his collection can "fly" in..... :-) Love it!!
  26. Another example of the first shape in the second image above has been posted in this forum as Rindskopf Pepita. In this example, the body of the vase also appears to not only have the burgundy rim, bu...
  27. Thanks Kyle.
  28. Thanks Kyle. I appreciate it.
  29. Nice Millifiori vase in the middle with the Kralik Iris label.
  30. Nice ones!!
  31. Nice grouping. Great Shape! Great Pics!
  32. Hello, What an absolutely fabulous set. The decanter and glasses are Italian, likely from the late 1960's or early 70's. They are by Vincenzo Nason. He formed his company "Vincenzo Nason & Cie" on Mur...
  33. Great examples, and a fabulous shape comparison. I like them both.....
  34. I agree, but am of the belief that as our desire to increase out knowledge progresses, it is best to err on the side of caution. Some seem to believe that this region and era of glass can not be ident...
  35. I think you will find if you look at numerous examples of this shape that they vary a little from example to example. The same can be seen on Welz scalloped fans and other Czech fan examples. Much of ...
  36. Nice example Frank. The green with the pulled feather décor is quite uncommon for this shape. Great find!!
  37. Nice example. I really like this décor.
  38. Happen to have an old pic of it Jericho?
  39. Kyle, I am still absolutely stunned that something like this would show up on an example that is undeniably Welz.
  40. Looks like a piece of Kralik banded. Nice find!! Especially in VCR's.... :-) http://www.kralik-glass.com/kralikbandedarray.html
  41. It is unfortunate, but their are items made to intentionally deceive people. There are also people that modify items in an attempt to deceive, and their are also people that simply misrepresent what t...
  42. Sadly, I agree with Scott. It is the responsibility of the buyer to know enough that they are sure of what they are buying. Especially when talking about higher priced items. It should also be the...
  43. The Ruby Lane seller was messaged with information regarding the décor and provided with information to verify it in Truitt..... and it was still left as S&W. It would seem that S&W is more mark...
  44. I have to add that after many years, it would appear likely that I now know where the single piece I saw offered on ebay actually went.... :-)
  45. I use a program called Photowise that I have used for years to create those types of images. I use other programs to color correct images and do other photo work, but Photowise is the best one I have ...
  46. A very nice example, and quite tall!! So I know two other collectors that have pieces of this décor. :-)
  47. This is a great assortment of these pieces. I find it very interesting that these pieces are found in shapes which can not be linked solidly to any particular house through supportable research. T...
  48. I have come to the conclusion that the décor is by Kralik. My explanation can be found here: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/159775-kralik-molded-web-and-kralik-pepita-wh?in=user
  49. See how that works.... LOL I do appreciate discussing things with you.... You have a refreshing take on things. :-)
  50. Ian and I discussed this name. I felt that his term of pointillist was appropriate as opposed to the other style of spatter by Welz which is decoupage spatter and much larger "pieces" of color. It is ...
