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. Here is another example of that foot. Right front piece in this pic. I have seen it on less than a half dozen examples of their production. http://cf.collectorsweekly.com/stories/1QKs.mI1NfPj9VEyM...
  2. I love this piece. I saw it originally and thought they were nuts with their asking price... which they were. I did not see it get relisted lower, but when I did it was sold.... so I wondered where t...
  3. The style of mark on the underside indicates that it is Kralik Production. Great find!! It is a cool piece in a nice decor.
  4. Another great find!!
  5. One of my favorite decors by them!! Great find!!
  6. Great stuff Kai!! Always enjoy reading your research findings.
  7. An interestingt variation of the more commonly seen zigzag shape.
  8. Looks like PG29... Pretty example.
  9. Thanks to all for the nice comments and the loves. Always appreciate that people stop by and take a look!
  10. Cool décor on this one for sure!
  11. My pleasure. Glad to help. I have to add that this is likely the most colorful example of this decor I have seen to date.... and a nice size to boot!!
  12. This stunning example is by Kralik.... Very nice find!
  13. Great pieces.... and a great comparison.... Every once in a while you will see a Webb piece being offered on ebay as a PG377 Loetz.
  14. These lamps are most likely knock offs of Fortuny designs, which is a high end Italian Lighting company. If you Google Fortuny, you will see examples of their style. Hope this helps!!
  15. I emailed you a pic that I think will be of interest.
  16. I love the back piece in pic 2. Great form!!
  17. Harry, I have not, but Peggy has one just the same and she has a post about it here: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/194710-bohemian-welz-jack-in-the-pulpit-vase Thanks everyone. I appre...
  18. I love that the images in these two posts show the diversity that can be attained by a creative maker, using something as simple as vertical lines in glass. I love the second piece in this post. The ...
  19. This shapes shows this decor perfectly... Great snag....
  20. Simply put... Years of studying, research, and collecting. there is no simple way.
  21. Not a problem. My pleasure.... Always glad to help.
  22. I would likely lean away from Murano as the source. Not sure where to look though. The highly polished pontil mark would indicate a reasonably high level of execution and attention to detail. Puleg...
  23. This is a Welz piece. Both the shape and the decor are linked solidly to their production. This shape has been identified in 11 different decors, several of which are markers for Welz production.
  24. It looks like you hit the Welz Decor era bonanza, based on your posts... :-)
  25. I have an image of a Carnival glass pitcher with a Kralik label on it, yet we do not really see Carnival production by them as a company. This example is not indicative of their production, yet it has...
  26. Hi skivatinitz.... Yes ca 1925-30. This basic shape is shown in a piece of 1928 production literature, although in a different decor and with some small dimples on the sides. Thanks to everyone fo...
  27. It is Michelle. I thought I had a feel for the size, but I was even surprised when I un-boxed it. Thanks again to all for the nice comments and continued loves.
  28. Thanks very much nuts.... And thank Malkey. I appreciate it.... and thanks to those who have stopped by and given a love.
  29. Hi Fran, those are certainly a reasonable possibility also, and more in your neighborhood so to speak, than Mexico.
  30. Not to confuse the issue, but these pitchers have had attributions which run the gamut. There are examples like the clear known to be by Loetz, among several other companies. These include a range of...
  31. I think this is possibly Mexican glass. I have seen similar styles of glass from there. Also, the pontil mark looks similar.
  32. Thanks to everyone for the love.... Always appreciated.
  33. Great piece!! Happy 4th...
  34. I wanted to mention that the orange glow of yellow glass is evidence of the use of Cadmium. Manganese is generally found in clear glass and causes a very faint green glow.
  35. Thanks to everyone who stopped by, and for the nice comments. Have a great 4th of July....
  36. That would be my take on it.....
  37. Great find...... The lower body of this basket is classic Welz, in so much as the style of basket is shown on a building emblem in Hrob, on a building owned by Welz. The building example has a differ...
  38. Great example.... I think that the underside is simply a poorly formed base from within the mold. This form with a ground rim is generally sans pontil mark or pontil work.
  39. Great vase!! Another one to go in the mix with this one, that has never been identified. Ian also posted a similar shape. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/174509-an-unidentified-czech-shap...
  40. If you have a black light, I think you will find this most likely glows green under UV. These are cool pieces.
  41. My pleasure. Always glad to help....
  42. Your bowl is a Steuben shape 2775 as seen on the underside. The shapes was made in several sizes. They are 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 inches in diameter. It was also produced in three styles of glass. They w...
  43. The finish on mine is a soft satin with iridescence.....
  44. Great example..... It appears to possibly be a relative to this one.... http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/145721-one-of-the-most-colorful-vases-i-have-ev
  45. Nice find.... I have also seen this blue controlled bubble decor on a Welz basket, although I can not locate the images at the moment.
  46. We have a nice mounted example of this decor in the pink... with Griffins on the metalwork.... Peggy loves pink glass and collects Griffins...... The purple is quite breathtaking.... I can not le...
  47. Nice find.... I can not say for sure if this is Welz or not. Although it is similar to Fran's décor, I would want to see the shape in another Welz decor to commit fully. Same for Fran's example. Qui...
  48. I love watching your collection grow, and I love the things you find.... You have a great eye, and seem to have an in depth understanding of the Welz aesthetic... When I started my research into ...
  49. This is nice, as it allows us to see a different color that Welz used. Very nice find.
  50. Great pics!! If I am not mistaken the basket in the first pic is Bohemian, and in a Welz decor I refer to as "Spiral Feather". The same décor is shown in Truitt I as Welz, but on a different shape....
