  1. Thanks Michelle and Peggy, and thanks to everyone else for stopping by.
  2. Since there seems to be a renewed interest in this post for some reason I think there are some points that should be clarified as parts of the original discussion are missing. Comment 7 above: "T...
  3. Seeing VioletOrange loving this post reminded me suddenly of a piece of glass he posted in this forum 2 years ago. Not only was the form in a Butler ad showing a Welz grouping, but it was also a piece...
  4. This is a great décor. The yellow used in this is a Cadmium based yellow,and these will glow orange under UV light. Nice examples.
  5. Thanks all.... It is great when a new shape can be identified beyond any doubt... even if it is something as simple as a basket form without the handle and ruffles.
  6. I for one would certainly welcome anything in the way of reasonably researched evidence that would support the idea that this decor is not made by Kralik, a décor attribution which has stood for many...
  7. Thank you so much Rick and OGF. I am glad that you find the information in my posts helpful.
  8. That is a long time... Lucky it showed up. Longest I have ever had was 4 weeks....
  9. Actually it was only a link to the vase on ebay in the auction that Alan purchased it from. I do not think there is anyone who would argue that the Italian label is not fake. The label discussion was ...
  10. Yes I do.... :-) I believe I said it was a fake label application then also. I believe a member of this forum tried to say it was Italian glass because of the label, and the rim was too thick to be...
  11. This vase is a great study piece, especially if one compares it to the two examples which Ian linked to which he has posted. Both of those shapes in Ian's post can be linked to Welz with specific Welz...
  12. The label is a modern label, placed on this piece to deceive.... or so somebody thought.
  13. Thanks Peggy. I did not recall seeing those.... Not enough for an ID, but definitely seems to be an uncommon tool.
  14. The most interesting detail about this example, aside from the fact that it is a nice example of Czech glass, is the unique and distinctive crimping tool used on the feet. I personally do not recall h...
  15. These are commonly accepted as Kralik, and have been for quite a few years.
  16. Absolutely Ian :-)
  17. Hi Ian. Although this form is similar to the Truitt shown Kralik form, it is actually quite different in at least a couple of ways. The neck on this example is broader than the Kralik examples. ...
  18. Still looking for those.... :-) Patience is always rewarded though....
  19. There is no record of if the "Houses" were provided to workers or not. Several of the properties owned by Welz were in close proximity to the glashütte and the coal fields. One would have to reasonabl...
  20. Scott, House 49 is actually a residence building in Hrob (Klostergrab). It is likely where some gaffers lived. There is no record of that. There is another House they owned which has a medallion de...
  21. Nice example!! Great shape!! Love this one. Very Deco!
  22. I like this one also. The acid stamp appears to be correct. They are not all clean and crisp.
  23. As I stated in the deleted comments, this décor is not seen often at all. The only other example I have seen, was in blue and on a ball vase similar to a shape normally associated with Kralik producti...
  24. I am sure it was deleted by the board moderators, even in light of the fact that the comments were completely on topic. Apparently they also now moderate the "tone" of conversations in addition to mod...
  25. Not what I meant. The decor is referred to as Pepita. That is what everyone calls it. Regardless of what the Truitt book says, everyone refers to it as Pepita.
  26. It is only Grenada if you want to go against what is commonly accepted now. It is commonly accepted to be Pepita and ID'd that way regularly. I did not want to confuse the issue, I just wanted to p...
  27. I find it so interesting that I actually contacted Deb Truitt a few months back and asked her if she recalled the source of the attributions for the Grenada in her book, and she did not recall it. Sai...
  28. I always use the commonly accepted terminology also..... but I just find it is an interesting curiosity.
  29. For what it is worth, and I am not sure when or how the terminology changed, although I have my suspicions, according to Truitt I, pages 118: 1-5 & 119: 6-7, this décor was called Grenada by Rindsko...
  30. LOL... looking to see how early you get started Frank :-)
  31. Stunning piece of glass Frank!! May as well start February off well!!
  32. Thanks Peggy
  33. I agree completely Peggy....
  34. Thanks for the offer. Contact me through the webmaster contact on the site if you like. I am not sure if I would be inclined or not, as the site contains over 6000 images and in excess of 425 pages. ...
  35. As I accumulated information for this post I went to the site to gather images I could use for the article. In doing so, it coincides with the removal of some pieces identified by someone involved in ...
  36. Thanks for the compliment Philmac51, I appreciate it. My only intention is to provide information on techniques I use, and practices I apply in my own research which I hope others may find helpful or...
  37. Classic Kralik knuckle vase. Nice find!!
  38. Thanks Rick. I appreciate it.
  39. I am of the opinion that even though companies copied shapes and copied décors, the very vast majority of it can still be discerned from each other though careful examination. Is that all of it? Likel...
  40. I think Kralik production also.
  41. Cool piece!.. I have a table that is very modernist in nickel and Bronze that is similar in design to this. Not figural like this but with a decorated top. If I have a chance I will post it later toda...
  42. Thanks, Scott.
  43. Thanks Scott & OneGoodFind.
  44. What you have there is actually American art glass produced by Fenton. The line was called Mosaic and was produced for one year in 1925. They are quite uncommon and pretty desirable, especially if the...
  45. These have it all in one nice package. Nice execution. Great interior lining color. wonderful exterior spatter with a generous amount of green mica inclusions, and fabulous applied rigaree handles.......
  46. This is a Welz piece for sure. Welz, like others, likely had thousands of shapes they produced over time. We have only really touched the tip of the iceberg as relating to identification of decors an...
  47. I have images of this decor on a known Kralik shape with an arched Czechoslovakia mark on it. Kralik without a doubt. I also have an image of a handled, knuckle style basket by Kralik in the same déc...
  48. http://www.kralik-glass.com/kralikbambusarray.html
  49. This is definitely Bambus by Kralik. Pretty example.
