  1. With the recent little flurry reviving some Honeycomb posts I thought I would bring the active group up together for fun.... a comparison of the information contained in the posts.
  2. I think Welz also. The clear foot is unusual, and the only one I have seen like this. Nice score!!
  3. I have prepared an image linking the foot of this vase directly to Welz, for those that may not be familiar. This link is simply one of many I could put together supporting the assertion that this foo...
  4. This is a great piece. I love period stuff like this. The artwork is reminiscent of Mucha's work in Documents Decoratif.
  5. Cool shape with a great foot. Have not seen this one before that I recall.
  6. IMHO, a serious claim that these are Harrachov is comical, and surely not one I find shocking. It is a claim which appears to be without merit, unsupported by any known documentation, and seemingly ba...
  7. I think they are likely by the same house. I have tried for several years now to identify the house that made this decor... to no avail....
  8. I can not believe I missed this before, although I have to say I am not surpised by it at all! My brother is a mechanic who works on equipment like this and the equipment that processes the ore in...
  9. Great assortment of Welz!!
  10. Yes, Italian..... and quite a nice piece. I love opalescent glass, especially the way the Italians did it. This piece is most likely from Murano.
  11. Lesley is a fabulous friend.... I know from first hand experience
  12. "Mistaken" Peggy.... not "Wrong".... :-) My pleasure Ian...
  13. You appear to be on a roll!!
  14. I thought it was note worthy!! :-)
  15. My pleasure. On many of these style of marks the texture of the mark almost looks as if it were made using a process similar to sand blasting as opposed to an even surface one would expect from ap...
  16. I LOVE this one. Fabulous find!! You forgot to mention the little bumps on all of the ribs!! These have a ton of details.
  17. I do not believe the mark is engraved. The shapes of the A's and the O's in particular seem to indicate that it was made with a stencil. Most common belief is that it was acid etched with a stencil ov...
  18. Great find!! I believe this to be a Hosch fairy lamp by Welz. Here is a link to a pic of the complete lamp with the top. http://cf.collectorsweekly.com/stories/eUQADCilvR.y7yo7EmwJJw.jpg Here ...
  19. Great piece. I love the ground color of this one, and the overall color combination!
  20. By linking this seldom seen decor to a shape identified in known factory production literature, and linking the shape of this vase to other decors by the same maker.
  21. Just be diligent and the bowl will show up. :-)
  22. Thanks. Glad to help, and appreciative of the pics.
  23. I believe this is a Welz décor. Although your example contains more of the color fragments causing it to appear darker overall than most, everything about it seems right. The color combination used in...
  24. This link is to a pic which shows the shape number, the production literature image, and the upper right example in the collage is the example in the Passau Welz case. http://cf.collectorsweekly.c...
  25. A known Welz shape and known Welz decor. This decor is in the Passau Welz case on a shape which is documented in production literature. The glow is likely a little orange looking and is the result of...
  26. Hello, and Welcome to CW! I think your vase should be in the Bohemian glass category under art glass. I believe it is Bohemian/Czech in origin. It is tough to tell for sure, but the combination of...
  27. The above comments regarding a "Coralie" label are relative to this link which was previously posted in this discussion but is now gone: https://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/30433872_drei-vasen-cor...
  28. Could you post yours Dave? I am very interested in seeing the shape, decor, and mark. Thanks in advance.
  29. Here is the image of the one that is the same shape and rim. This example stands at 7-7/8 inches. with similar mouth and base dimensions as your smaller example. http://www.kralik-glass.com/image...
  30. Interestingly, I saw another example of this shape with thorns in a different colorful décor which I have also never seen before. I also saw one in a solid red with a white lining with the same body s...
  31. For what it is worth, I contacted Fisher Auctions to see if they may have had any archived images from the auction that showed the label, but they did not. To be clear, the name Coralie does not di...
  32. Based on the Fischer images I would also say that if those examples are Rückl, then this is also. As an interesting side note, the word Coralie is a French woman's name which means "Coral".
  33. The only references I could locate relative to Rückl and the Coralie label in Google results for the US, Germany, and also CZ are all related to the Fischer auction post. I am of the opinion that ...
  34. I do not know, but the name has always confused me a little also.
  35. I would add that in the above image of the shape group, the first 5 décors are all décors found on multiple shapes identified as Welz production. The 6th example in that group is the only example ...
  36. I thought it important to clear this up for forum users that may not know, as I consider the above comment to not be totally accurate. From an online dictionary source regarding the meaning of "Pr...
  37. Here is a link to Welz machine threaded examples in the Skarske Museum in Novy Bor in the Czech Republic. The examples were dated in the case to ca. 1900. This image was taken in 2012. Although I ...
  38. Hi there, Great find, and a nicely done piece. Based on the style I would date the piece to the 1930's. The carving is reminiscent of French Deco, and likely done in the manner of some of the more...
  39. I have no idea on this one. Kralik? Rückl?, or a couple of others. I think the shape would be the key to the ID on this one. This is a style of décor likely done by several companies which can be ...
  40. Thank you Marcus. I will take a look.
  41. That is very interesting Marcus. I am completely unfamiliar with Hrdina. Is there any specific information regarding the company available in books, or on the net? Thanks, Craig
  42. Yes, Welz for sure!! I wonder if there is a smooth pedestal out there?? Something to look for!!
  43. Hi Fran, The interior glass of these pieces is a kind of orange/yellow color made using Cadmium as a colorant for the glass. It is the Cadmium which causes the orange glow under UV.
  44. This family of shapes is amongst my favorite in Welz production. The back two are in Shape 7257 and are shown in 1928 production literature. Their production height is stated at 11cm. Nice grouping!!
  45. These examples are Welz. I have seen the creamer shape in other décors. This décor is not one I recall seeing before. Another piece of the puzzle!! Nice find!!
  46. I will post them when I get a chance to snap a couple of pics. I also have a creamer in this décor with a slightly different shape, and a little larger, although still small.
  47. Here is a link to an image group showing the piece with the Royal Art Glass Welz label: http://www.kralik-glass.com/images/RoyalArtGlass.jpg
  48. One of my favorite décors. These are always nicer in person. I have a similar pair in Cadmium lined oxblood spatter, and they are also surprisingly small. Dainty I guess one could say.
  49. For what it is worth, I have recently seen an example of, and have images of the center piece with a Royal Art Glass label. This label is referenced by the Glasmarken Lexicon as a Welz label, and is f...
  50. Nice display Frank!!
