As of 5/22/16 I will no longer be posting any of my personal research related articles in this forum that are not Welz specific. Regrettably, I have also removed froAs of 5/22/16 I will no longer be posting any of my personal research related articles in this forum that are not Welz specific. Regrettably, I have also removed from this forum, the portion of my posted research articles whose content did not relate specifically to Welz. I have left most of the Welz specific materials as I feel any attempt at re-posting any of my Welz research without the obligatory credit being given 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. Unfortunately, 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 ethically 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. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I will continue to post articles sharing some basic observations regarding glass that are applicable to Czech / Bohemian glass, and others, regardless of the makers. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 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. Looks Czech to me, but as to maker.... I have no idea.
  2. Although others more well versed in Loetz than I am may confirm or deny it, this appears to me to be an example of Loetz Ausführung 166, which is found in a variety of different color combinations. It...
  3. Items shipped to England require the master carton or packing crate to be marked as to country of origin. The individual items did not need to be marked, unlike the US that required it on individual i...
  4. I did see that, but I believe some Loetz shapes were in use for periods of time, which would not exclude this from being an interwar piece. If the piece was produced post 1918 in this shape, and sold...
  5. Fabulous shape, and in a quite lovely décor!!
  6. Michelle, I would agree with you that it may be earlier than I suggested based on the décor. Warren or Kairomalte may be better qualified to answer that though.
  7. If you have looked for an oval mark, then I assume this is 1920-30's. The Glasgow Rose is attributed to the period of the late 1890's, and just past the turn of the Century when "The Four" were ve...
  8. Same decor as the other piece, just less use of color with the Cadmium yellow background. Same combination of colors though. To me the color combination used is the key. I see variations in the amount...
  9. I have a few examples of decors that use bubbles in the decor that are strategically place in the color patterns. I find the technique to be fascinating.
  10. Lovely piece.... I love old glass. I have a couple of early German/Dutch Roemers from the late 1500's / early 1600's. The history old glass brings with it is really quite amazing.
  11. Thanks to everyone for the nice comments and loves, and a Happy Thanksgiving to all that celebrate it today!!
  12. Thanks to everyone for the nice comments and loves, and a Happy Thanksgiving to all that celebrate it today!!
  13. Thanks to everyone for the nice comments and loves, and a Happy Thanksgiving to all that celebrate it today!!
  14. Thanks to everyone for the nice comments and loves, and a Happy Thanksgiving to all that celebrate it today!!
  15. Thanks.... I love it!! And now I know where I got it!! :-)
  16. Just dish soap and some rags. I used Happich Simi-chrome on the metal parts. The paint is all original to the piece. Nothing has been changed at all.
  17. It is fluted the same as the rest of the post. I think it is original to the lamps and was likely added as both a strengthening piece, and an additional detail to highlight the half sphere. It adds me...
  18. My pleasure.
  19. Let's not forget to mention the Czech spatter piece lurking in the background. :-)
  20. Here are some pictures showing the details of mine. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/211052-art-deco--machine-age-floor-lamps-an-e
  21. Great lamps. I love these! I have a quite similar pair which have brushed aluminum shades, a fluted post and a half sphere base with a chromed disc around the base. If I have a chance to take some p...
  22. Thanks to everyone for the nice comments and loves.
  23. I am of the belief that at least a couple, possibly more, made a similar décor. That was one of the primary "points of contention" in discussions and attributions of this decor. The now departed...
  24. Interesting example of Bambus....
  25. Although I have not seen this particular shape before, the décor does appear to be Aquagold. Great example! http://www.kralik-glass.com/kralikaquagoldarray.html
  26. Thank you Rose.... You are too kind.
  27. Although they are fairly Welz like in appearance, I have never linked either this shape or this décor to Welz. I agree with Alan though... Great pair!!

  29. Thanks Peggy..... the not envious thing is a two way street LOL
  30. The LeVerrier version of this form in a set of bookends are titled "Délassement." It translates to relaxation or recreation. Great pieces. We have both some original LeVerrier figures, and some deco ...
  31. I firmly believe this to be a Welz décor in this color.
  32. What a great assortment.....
  33. These are great..... I knew where these would land also.... LOL
  34. I figured that I knew where this would land..... Love it... :-)
  35. I lived in Novato in 1970 and went to several parties at "The Ranch", which is what the locals I met referred to it as. Interesting times for sure.....
  36. The prime minister gave me a personal pass... I called him.... we're buds.... they stay with me.... :-)

  38. I think that some Art Deco aesthetic forms started in production pre WWI. In regards to production of Victorian aesthetic items, I am thinking in the 1910 - 1925 ranges..... but nothing to really...
  39. I sent you a picture....
  40. I am curious if this piece has a pontil mark or not?
  41. So here is a another thought for you..... What if the production that many see as Victorian, is actually glass produced in that style as a throwback to an earlier style of glass, and designed with th...
  42. My pleasure..... Always glad to help. I owned one of these in the light blue and got rid of it after studying it for a while. Although they are nicely done, among other things, the colors are not...
  43. Margies Garden is actually a brand name for an importer if I am not mistaken. I believe their glass like this is Chinese in origin. Their label states hand made by Artisans, but does not state made in...
  44. I would add that the vast majority of examples are found on ground colors which are not quite "right" for vintage glass....
  45. I am of the opinion that the vast majority of this glass, attributed to Kralik as a result of a particular researcher, is in fact not theirs. Many examples of this, commonly being sold as Kralik, are ...
  46. Try an area at the bottom center interior first, and see if the glass is damaged underneath it. if so, you do not have to go all the way and it will not really show...... Just a thought....
  47. This is a tough one...... Tough to tell without them in hand, but the paint seems like an add to me. With the kind of soiled look to the gold, I would be tempted to remove it myself. If doing so,...
  48. As far as I could find, the shape is not in the line art for Steuben in Gardner, "The Glass of Frederick Carder".
  49. In regards to Rindskopf as a suggestion of maker, my only issue with that is that the décor is seen on some ground colors otherwise not associated with Rindskopf production. The same colors are ones n...
  50. Ian, I have never been able to completely figure out what the white is. It is not Mica, but some other material I think. The colors are even nicer and more striking in person.... a very special pi...
