  1. Thank You kivatinitz. Always ask questions if something I write does not make sense.
  2. 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.....
  3. 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...
  4. Very cool example!! I am not sure who did this piece, but I do not know that I would jump straight away to Kralik as the production house.
  5. 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.
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. 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.... :-)
  9. I say something might be plausible, you say I said it is.... Same ____, Different year. :-)
  10. 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.....
  11. OK. I missed that in the opening sentence.... Duh.... pretty much settles it then.
  12. If I have a chance I will look in the Loetz drawings to see if I can find the shape.
  13. Yes that is relevant.... It is possible that it could be Kralik also. I am curious about what the pontil work looks like?
  14. 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...
  15. It appears to me to be Creta Glatt. Bottom section of this page. http://www.kralik-glass.com/loetzglattarray.html
  16. Love Love Love this one!!
  17. 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, ...
  18. 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...
  19. 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....
  20. Great examples... I love the shape of the larger pitcher.....
  21. I agree, Thanks.
  22. Thanks to everyone for the nice comments and loves. I appreciate it.
  23. Fabulous find!!
  24. "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.
  25. 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...
  26. I would say Deco Era.
  27. No problem.... Drive safe...
  28. Our pleasure really.....
  29. Not at all. It simply means that it is a decor made in a manner different than Kralik Snowflake, and also a little different than any Rindskopf I am familiar with. It does not rule out Rindskopf as th...
  30. In your first two pics now, it is easy to see the mica flakes contained in the glass.....
  31. I have seen enough in the images from the ebay listing which Michelle sent to me. I think the piece is definitely made using mica.
  32. After looking at larger auction images, the vase is definitely made using a large mount of mica inclusions and not any form of frit. Very interesting décor.
  33. Thanks Michelle, I would love to see the auction pics of the piece. A good vase to add to my image archives.
  34. If you look at the pic of the base, the bright areas appear to be under the surface of the glass and appear to be mica particles. If the vase was frit, it would feel a little like sand as you rubbed t...
  35. For what it is worth, the Passau has several examples of what appears to be this décor displayed in a Poschinger case. The recent attempt to link to Pallme König, at least to me, seemingly ignor...
  36. Great vase Gruff!! It is hard to tell from the pics for sure, but it does not appear to me top be applied frit that we are seeing on the vase. A closeup image of the surface would help to tell for su...
  37. I am curious if you look through the glass from the interior with some back light, are there any spots of pale colors seen in the decor?
  38. First example on legs like this I have seen in the décor.... I also think it is the first time I have seen this form on legs also... Great addition to your growing Welz collection. I can not say ...
  39. Great vase, and a very rare form..... I agree with Sklo42. This vase is in a décor which is strongly linked to Franz Welz production though multiple different shapes, while nevere having been succe...
  40. I asked because I do not see the connection. It is a webbed style of decor over a spotted body.... Seen in a variety of color combinations and on a variety of shapes, most of which are unidentified as...
  41. Yes... Really....
  42. I am curious what in those links would point towards Kralik?
  43. Although some consider these to be by Harrach, and they certainly bear a resemblance to some of their production, the production house of Franz Welz also produced quite similar wares, and without some...
  44. I believe there is a very good possibility that your vase is an example of mid century production by the Czech company Skrdlovice. Not sure who the designer is though. Very pretty piece. I love pink...
  45. Jericho, I got the assortment of shapes with some great help from a collector that accumulated the décor for a number of years. That, combined with examples I have seen through the years, made up the ...
  46. These vases are turn of the Century Bohemian glass, likely produced ca 1900-1915 or so.
  47. I am of the opinion that several companies likely made the first shape. It is also found with Kralik's Abstract Flower décor. To simply assume the shape is Rückl, as stated in comment 1, is an assump...
  48. I have a pair of them in the ribbed version in this decor. One of my favorite color combinations!
  49. Yes, this is by Welz..... Now to find the pedestal.... :-)
  50. The shape is pleasing, even cut down..... so not a total loss.... and a good lesson...
