As of 5/22/16 I will no longer be posting any of my own personal non-Welz related research articles in this forum. I have also, regrettably, removed the portion of As of 5/22/16 I will no longer be posting any of my own personal non-Welz related research articles in this forum. I have also, regrettably, removed the portion of my posted research articles whose content did not relate specifically to Welz. I have left the Welz only related materials as I feel any attempt at re-posting any of that research without obligatory credit would immediately be seen for what it is. I have no objection, and never have had, to the sharing of any of my posted research materials as long as proper source credit is given. Although I feel that the sharing of information is a necessary part of collecting, I also feel that the re-posting of such information by others in a manner seemingly representing it as one's own personal work product with no form of acknowledgement as to source, is completely unacceptable behavior. It is not an activity that I have ever participated in, acknowledging at all times the sources and/or inspirations for my work if not based purely on my own original concepts. Not doing so is a practice I would never condone, or ever tolerate. Such activities have occurred both here in CW, and outside of this forum on a glass website. As a direct result of this activity, my public sharing of such information will no longer be forthcoming. Surprisingly, in over a decade of activity in many large international forums and collector venues on the internet, resulting in interactions with thousands of collectors, dealers, and researchers, this is the only venue where such questionable behavior has ever occurred. Although I am a big supporter of sharing information, I am a bigger believer in what I would expect to be respectful behavior by those it is being shared with. Sadly, It would appear that not all members here share that same belief. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Primarily a researcher, I am also the owner and webmaster of www.Kralik-glass.com, and a long term collector with well over 20 years experience in the world of glass. Although I have collected a wide variety of regions and periods of glass, my primary research area has now focused for the last 8+ years on the development of information regarding the scope of the glass production, and the history of the family, as it relates to Franz Welz Klostergrab.

  1. The décor of the glass on this vase is Moss Agate.
  2. For what is is worth, My Loetz Argentan's, produced ca 1908 have absolutely no age wear on the underside at all. Zero..... so as the presence of age wear can be a good indicator of age..... the abs...
  3. I have seen the shape, and also owned the décor in a classic and marked Kralik ball vase. Nice find. Great shape.
  4. This post has been updated with accurate information regarding the attribution of this unusual vase.
  5. I did not mean front and rear window, I meant when you opened the wing and rolled down the front there was no post like most cars have.... The rears were "portholes".
  6. Great find!! I love Studebakers!! That is a Champion isn't it? The old "Coming or Going" car.... :-) I had a 1961 Silver Hawk I used as a driver for many years. Bought it used with about 40K on it, ...
  7. What is great about this pair is that the fact that the unique decor on both example matches. The left hand one is a shape (9054) documented in Welz production literature from 1928, leaving absolutely...
  8. Me Too!! Nice find!!
  9. A New Décor!! On a Documented shape!! Shape 9054.
  10. Your vase is found on this page in the Kralik section: http://www.kralik-glass.com/kraliktooledthreadedarray.html The attribution to Kralik was made years ago by a different researcher, and alth...
  11. This is not a Goose or an Eagle. This is classic Art Deco, and a representation of "Leda and the Swan". This was a commonly found theme in metal work such as bookends and also in artwork. It is quite ...
  12. Thanks actually go to Brian Severn for image use. He was the owner of this piece.
  13. I believe Onyx is actually correct. They appear to be White Onyx. The finish on Alabaster is generally more of a soft matte finish, and not glossy like these are.
  14. It appears to be an example of Loetz Ausführung 218. Nice catch...
  15. These are absolutely fabulous!!
  16. Nice pair.... I love pairs..... This shape of vase was not only identified as Welz in Truitt I, but was shown in the Tango exhibition of 2011-12 in the Welz case. The example in both those instances ...
  17. Sorry, the third one should have been: http://www.kralik-glass.com/images/Aarhus3.jpg
  18. I was able to locate some Aarhus catalog images: http://www.kralik-glass.com/images/Aarhus2.jpg http://www.kralik-glass.com/images/Aarhus1.jpg http://www.kralik-glass.com/images/Aarhus.jpg ...
  19. I have also never seen one of these in this form. Although these are systematically attributed to Kralik, almost without hesitation, I am of the opinion that there were likely at least a few Bohe...
  20. http://www.kralik-glass.com/kralikopaldecoarray.html
  21. Hi Rose, Small prices are always a bonus!! I do not believe this to be Welz. I have seen several of these in this shape through the years. Although they have mostly been in décors similar to this one,...
  22. ca. 1925-30 :-) Nice piece.
  23. The GUESS at Rückl above, the most common and frequent attribution shift by a single individual for Welz pieces in this forum, would seem once again, to be mistaken. The following image link will p...
  24. Thank You kivatinitz. Always ask questions if something I write does not make sense.
  25. Kai, I agree with everything you point out here.... I was simply adding commentary on the pieces. I have leaned towards Kralik for the attribution of this décor since we discussed it many years ago.....
  26. Like you Kai, I have looked at this décor for quite a few years. I have hoped to see it on a different shape to help confirm an attribution. It seems to come on the shape in the first image most often...
  27. Thanks for asking that question. It is not one that had crossed my mind before, but makes complete sense once you asked it, and even more sense after looking at the label and invoice fonts.
  28. As always Charcoal. watching you edit and delete comments to create something more "user friendly" to your "agenda" is fabulously entertaining... Actually, it is the only reason I would bother comme...
  29. Thanks Other than the claim that these are labels by the New York company, I am not aware of the existence of any paper label by the Royal Art Glass Co. who produced lamp. I am only aware of marking...
  30. I don't.... but that would not get in your way from stating something that is not true... Facts... they are your friend.... You should consider actually trying to use them sometime.... :-)
  31. I say something might be plausible, you say I said it is.... Same ____, Different year. :-)
  32. There it is.... the Anti-Welz claim on literature I was so sure was coming at some point. You are beyond predicatable and if pigs had wings... they could fly.....
  33. OK. I missed that in the opening sentence.... Duh.... pretty much settles it then.
  34. If I have a chance I will look in the Loetz drawings to see if I can find the shape.
  35. Yes that is relevant.... It is possible that it could be Kralik also. I am curious about what the pontil work looks like?
  36. Thanks Ian. In regards to your comment disappearing on the post that prompted my post, it is worth mentioning that after your comment addressing the condition of the label was deleted by the new owner...
  37. It appears to me to be Creta Glatt. Bottom section of this page. http://www.kralik-glass.com/loetzglattarray.html
  38. Love Love Love this one!!
  39. This post has been edited to remove an image, in light of the image being linked to, seemingly in an effort to support a post that I completely disagree with. My concern in forums such as this is, ...
  40. I have changed out the second image as I located another example of a piece documented in the literature. The right top example is shown in a uranium green ground with the same color applied handle an...
  41. Even broken I feel it is a worthwhile one to hang on to. I have not seen the shape before and it is a good reference piece....
  42. Great examples... I love the shape of the larger pitcher.....
  43. I agree, Thanks.
  44. Thanks to everyone for the nice comments and loves. I appreciate it.
  45. Fabulous find!!
  46. "the spatter somehow looks different....." Could simply be a house we are not really familiar with. The shape is about as simplistic as one can get.
  47. I think that this post is a fabulous example of the use of shapes to identify production that is common to multiple houses. Among the known makers of the Martelé decor are at least 4 houses, and where...
  48. I would say Deco Era.
  49. No problem.... Drive safe...
  50. Our pleasure really.....
