  1. Thanks Tom. I appreciate it.
  2. I was looking at my image archives of Welz, and I do not have a good pic of this shape in this decor. Would it be OK if I used yours?
  3. Lisa, You have absolutely nothing to apologize for. You did not "start" anything You simply posted a piece of quite striking glass that several members here, who collect Czech glass recognized immedia...
  4. Glad to help clarify....
  5. I do not believe Passau is stating that the glass from the Jugendstil period is more identifiable, and later it is not. They do not really address or picture the later Deco Era production in the DBG v...
  6. Some believe many glass houses could have made it. Many people understand that. I for one, do not agree with that. I also think that the simple statement that you do not agree would likely make th...
  7. The name of the town in the above comment is actually Vernerice, with the second "r" needing a special character that apparently CW does not like to reproduce.
  8. I have replaced one of the postcard images of the glassworks with a current overhead view of the area. The Welz facility was actually located in Verne?ice, a town that was destroyed in 1950-60 for the...
  9. I have added another post of a piece of Welz Ephemera here: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/136372-one-more-find-of-welz-ephemera-related-t?in=activity#comment-616647
  10. I appreciate all the kind comments and also the "loves". Thanks to all who have looked at this post.
  11. This is one of my favorite Welz décors, especially in the white ground version. This decor, referred to as "Harlequin Spatter" on my website, and based on my research, is a decor I consider to be by W...
  12. In response to Alfredo's question: It has always struck me as odd, and will continue to strike me as odd, that the expectation by a persistent select few, is that Welz research should be based on, ...
  13. I appreciate the "loves" this post has received from forum members. The uncovering of these images really represents for me, a milestone in the Welz research I have been doing for about 7 years now.
  14. Welz also made cut glass, and according to Truitt I, pg 130 paragraph 1. Following a reference to a time frame of 1870, "At that time Welz made glass reminiscent of the Baroque Period. He employed ...
  15. Rindskopf and Kralik have been studied seriously using almost exclusively empirical methods for over 30 years. During this period Welz was all but unknown, forgotten or ignored. They are certainly not...
  16. According to writings I have seen by Franz Alois Welz, the Welz facility closed down in the 1930's as a result of the impending war. I quote the rough translation: "The crisis of the 1930s laid ou...
  17. I agree with that time frame.... and you are quite welcome..... I personally think you are right about it's age.
  18. I find myself needing to comment in support of the OP here. I believe the actual intention of this post was to show a vase, that upon close in hand examination, she feels is relatively new. I think th...
  19. Thanks... I appreciate it.... The quality is just fine.... Your pics are always nice..... and my pleasure to provide the info..... always glad to help when I can.
  20. Without going into great detail, the link to Welz production is quite robust. The research attributing the decor and shape to Welz included an example of this decor, in this shape, with an FWK label o...
  21. The unpublished Ruckl line art drawing depicting a decor identified as "Decor 300/I orange Shimmy" shows only TWO colors, orange and yellow, and has no veins. This decor is not even remotely simi...
  22. Yes, I believe it was applied by Welz before packing for shipment. I have seen this shape before in other decors I consider to be Welz, and have also seen this very distinctive decor on other Welz sha...
  23. I do not participate in this forum any longer, but as it appears that there is still some confusion and misunderstanding regarding this label I will provide the following information, as I believe it ...
