  1. In the second pic, the pic of two kids is sitting on a widow sill. The face that looks right side up is of a child laying on his back looking at the camera. The smaller face next to him is right side ...
  2. One thing I really like about this piece is the modernist feel to it. The piece looks like it could come out of a modern studio and be appropriate for the time..... yet this was made over 100 years ag...
  3. I am curious how this shade of blue and the iridescence of the surface compare to the crackle pair you posted? This is a very striking piece.
  4. Nice example in a different shape. The color combination in this décor is quite distinct, and yes, the décor appears to be the same one found on examples of the tri-lobed heart by Welz... a shape I co...
  5. Nice shape & Great color......
  6. My pleasure....
  7. Your vase is a design by Dansk. It is in a décor referred to as Mezza Filigrana. They have been made both in and outside of China. There are some examples here: https://www.google.com/search?q=...
  8. Although this is similar to a shape shown in a Butler ad of what I believe to be all Kralik pieces, it is not the same shape. I have never seen this shape in a décor which would allow for a solid attr...
  9. The bowl in the upper left of image 2 has been replaced with one very similar in appearance to the original spatter bowl which was found to be by Welz. The inserted bowl now in the image is both simil...
  10. I have added a correct looking Kralik bowl in this group in the post located here: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/139281-butler-brothers-ads--an-interesting-ear?in=user I have also adde...
  11. If this is not Tiffany, and marked, it is definitely one of the other studios, most likely Apollo. It is an American made box for sure.
  12. .....and do not clean it other than with very mild soap and water to remove loose dirt and grime. a couple of drops of dish soap in some lukewarm water, and clean it with a soft tooth brush. If you d...
  13. You can also find similar items made by Riviere and Apollo Studios. Ex Tiffany employees, with knowledge of the process to make these, produced similar wares to the Tiffany items. This is commonly ...
  14. After taking a look, I agree with Michelle. Looks like Heckert.
  15. What a fabulous piece of glass!!
  16. Sure does.... nice find.... so likely a variant of the Ausf 122 décor.
  17. I have done some searching and could find nothing like this, either decor or shape. My gut reaction to this shade is that it is not a Loetz shade, but definitely done in the manner of a Streifen und F...
  18. Your Kralik piece either had a lid, or a metal flower frog. Is the top edge highly polished, or is it a kind of matte finish to it?
  19. My pleasure. Glad to help.
  20. Your taller piece is a piece of Kralik, as indicated by the arched Czechoslovakia mark on the underside. The other piece is contemporary glass and could be Chinese or other.....
  21. I have owned some Webb Bronce pieces and I have to say that I do not believe this is Webb. I believe the attribution in the pin is incorrect. I am still of the belief that this is a newer piece of stu...
  22. I agree with Dave... pretty piece, but most likely contemporary studio production.
  23. There is also a good possibility that these could actually be Italian. Pauli & Co of Venice produced extremely similar items that were parts of small dresser sets. These are commonly referred to as Bo...
  24. Quite similar wares also came out of Italy in good quantities. I have actually sold several pieces with Italian labels on them by Pauli & Co. Venice. Green & also cobalt glass with gold enameling and ...
  25. Nice try Charcoal. I am done with your ridiculous "logic". It seems more than a little disingenuous when you want to try to use my pictures (the group shot) of parts of my own personal personal collec...
  26. I am really glad you brought that up.... Thanks for yet another information sharing opportunity. Funny thing.... I own that exact trophy vase.... not one like it, but the actual vase you have a pi...
  27. Charcoal: "Please add a link to one of the "many original Welz labels" on a related decor." When shown labels on Deco Era Welz production you, claimed that Welz did not even make glass, and traded ...
  28. Absolutely Stunning!! A super quality Deco piece!!
  29. Charcoal: "There are no related decors or shapes labeled Welz. There is no manufacturers documentation showing this shape or these decors as Welz. There is absolutely nothing showing Welz made the sha...
  30. I look forward to pics of it.... One of my favorite glass colors.
  31. I agree that they are both Welz.
  32. I am also curious about the tall light blue opalescent piece on the right end of the middle shelf. Could not find it posted here. It appears to be Italian? Possibly by Cenedese?
  33. I missed this before. This is an example of Kralik production. the arched mark on the underside is generally accepted as a Kralik provenance mark.
  34. I am in agreement with Kairomalte. Although similar to a couple of Kralik décors, I do not believe it is Kralik production either.
  35. My response in comment 10 is a response to a question and comments by a user who's account has recently been deleted from this forum.
  36. Thank You very much for the information. She will be thrilled to know that. We really got it for a song at the show. She loves it regardless, but knowing it's origins will make her appreciate it even ...
  37. For those that read this post and find that the comments do not seem to make sense in some parts, it is due to the fact that the account of one of the people involved in the "conversation" has been de...
  38. I would snag it if you can. They are not worth a ton of money, but they are really cool looking, and extremely hard to find.
  39. This is a piece by Morgantown, a US company. The line is referred to as Moonscape. It is not very common, and really pretty infrequently seen. Difficult to find references for it. I have a piece like ...
  40. The bowl in the upper left of the second image has been replaced with a Kralik Lines and Canes bowl in the same shape. (Thanks Dave) The original bowl in the image, although quite similar, was shown b...
  41. Thanks a lot for that Jericho, as I appreciate the support. To be honest with you, the nonsense has gone on for so long that when I feel it is appropriate, I simply respond with my research findin...
  42. These are fine... Thanks, Craig
  43. Thanks Scott, and you are welcome. Always my pleasure to provide something of interest.
  44. I made nothing my own, other than to address what I feel are incorrect observations regarding the similarity of the the three shapes, and their being the same. You found the shapes to be a "nice ma...
  45. One of the critical aspects of empirical research is to pay close attention to everything, but very specifically to the small details. Although the shape of the Worthpoint example with the Royal Ar...
  46. Royal Art Glass did not have an address. It was not a company, but a line of glass made by Welz..... at least according to the Glasmarken Lexicon....... but you know that...... so again, I am not ex...
  47. The mark on this vase is a mark which is known to be a Kralik provenance mark. This example is Kralik.
  48. Royal Art Glass is a product line manufactured and labeled by Welz..... One you seemingly continue to confuse somehow with the Royal Art Glass Co. of New York. A company that produced lamps and has n...
  49. For clarification, and resourced from a Purdue University online writing lab, regarding the use of quotation marks: "The primary function of quotation marks is to set off and represent exact langua...
  50. When Jericho posted this, he was actually quite familiar with my Butler research which started more than 3 years prior to this post bu Jericho. We do not need to have a survey. I trust those that...
