  1. Very unusual.... nice example.....
  2. Great piece.... I would agree with the attribution to Galliano Ferro. One of my favorite Italian color combinations.
  3. You are certainly welcome Fran. It is my pleasure. In the image shown in the link in comment 9, the tall vase in blue to the front is generally found in a 10 to 11 inch height. Based on that assum...
  4. I have added both of the pieces linked to above by Charcoal, to the image I linked to in my previous comment. I think that the similarity of these examples, combined with the distinct differences that...
  5. Based on a close look at a shape comparison of this vase and the Rückl in the link provided by Charcoal, I do not think the two vases are the same shape. I think an ID based on that comparison is prem...
  6. After seeing an example of the 4th Hosch example above, #7348, I have concluded that at this point there is not enough available evidence to support a Welz attribution for that example.
  7. It is reminiscent of this piece I think, but not the same maker..... at least I do not think it is.... http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/142074-kralik-rainbow-glass-3-mouthed-vase
  8. You are welcome Jericho.... at this point it is a pleasure to continue it.....
  9. Thanks Jericho.... it is quite unusual.... and very colorful!
  10. Thanks Jericho..... pretty exciting stuff...
  11. I agree that it looks like a Welz decor. I am curiou if there is a ground or polished pontil mark on the underside of the pitcher. I would also comment that in my opinion there is no way something...
  12. The blue example is a shape documented in Welz literature.... Nice one!
  13. Nice find on this one. It is definitely Bambus and not Flame. Bambus in an orange ground is a little more unusual. Nice one....
  14. Classic Welz décor. The shape is documented in factory production literature. Nice!!
  15. Can't wait to see it.... Love seeing new glass!!
  16. My pleasure... Sorry I could not be of more help. Welcome to CW by the way....
  17. You can go to the link under where it shows loves and likes.... that says "Edit this item". At the bottom under your text there is the selection that will say "Primary Category" and that is set to Art...
  18. I have never seen this shape of vase before..... I am not sure if Harrach did a ribbon edge of clear like this vase has... I wish I could tell you more, but I am at a loss. It does bear a resemblanc...
  19. Hello Weena. Post some good pics to show and tell in Bohemian glass and then comment here and I will take a look.
  20. Try investigating Nason. It is Italian.... This resembles some of their Aventurine work although I do not recognize the shape.... but that is a direction I would look. Nice piece....
  21. I have a small vase in this surface pattern that is in a dark blue ground, and has a multi-colored spatter decor.... I will send you a pic.
  22. Thanks Peggy & Michelle, and everyone else. My only intention is to provide what I hope is some insight into one of the methods I have used to research, and successfully identify some Welz producti...
  23. Thanks Kyle....
  24. A beauty Frank!!
  25. Thanks to everyone for taking a look....
  26. Thanks to everyone for taking a look....
  27. Thanks to everyone for taking a look....
  28. Thanks everyone... appreciate people taking a look.
  29. I did not think you were going crazy Penny..... I know you are crazy...... but I also figured out you were talking about some of the pieces in the link.... :-)
  30. Gorgeous piece.... I love this one..... and it seems you understand the world as known by smart men..... A Happy wife makes for a Happy life!! :-)
  31. I agree Rick, and would really love to find an example.... but they are extremely rare to come across..... I wish that example was mine.... but alas... it is not.... :-(
  32. Thanks Lee, Penny and others..... Here is a link to the page on my website showing some really fabulous and artistically unique examples of early Beranek production. It is a work in progress. I...
  33. I would agree that this is Welz production in the Harlequin Honeycomb decor. This particular décor has not been successfully linked to any other production house that I am aware of. It does appear on ...
  34. Thanks..... I would think an oversight... or a rushed order.... but who knows for sure.... Thanks...
  35. Hi Jim. I am curious which one of these has a snapped pontil? Thanks again, Craig
  36. Scott, I would be quite shocked if the two vases were not the same house......
  37. The first three décors I have seen previously. The first and third examples I have seen in this shape. These two decors are ones I can link to Welz though other shapes. The second example is a décor s...
  38. This is the post I found which sparked this post: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/130213-fairy-lamp--clarkes-zebra-design
  39. I posted this, which may be of interest to you: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/149219-snowflake-crimp--a-year-long-study-lo
  40. The shape of the bowl rim in the third image is a rim crimping style I have been looking at for about a year now. I have linked several decors in this style of bowl, and also some vases, to Welz and t...
  41. Nice lamps by the way..... So here is my take on the pieces..... For what it is worth, I would preface it by saying that I do not collect Fairy lamps, but I do study decors and shapes, and have f...
  42. The Palm tree is kinda cool isn't it... I own one in Oxblood spatter.... looks much cooler in this décor
  43. It is not mine Lee, it is Scott's, but I used it with his blessing to post some new findings......
  44. Thank you Jim. I really appreciate that.... I added some comments...
  45. In seeing a better example of the last lamp pictured here, I would say that at present there would be nothing I am aware of in the way of product identified as Welz which would lead me to think that p...
  46. This Rainbault clock is one of my favorite Deco Era clocks..... It is a real stunner!!
  47. Thanks Scott, and I agree. That is one I scratch my head in confusion about all the time...... Your methods do not work, but let me use the same methods in a less strict manner to show why you a...
  48. I have added another example in Oxblood and Green I just acquired. This one is without the wings, but in this documented Welz shape. The height also matches the production catalog measurements.
  49. Thanks everyone..
  50. Thanks Michelle.
