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. Certainly hope that my "extraneous information" did not confuse you!! :-)
  2. I am confused..... Exactly what is your point Lisa?
  3. The "smile" mark has never been solidly linked to any known Kralik production I am aware of, and is considered an unknown mark. As far as Eza's collection goes, I linked some shapes of her pieces t...
  4. Of the marks shown here, the one you are asking about is more tentatively accepted as being theirs, but it is seen on some production considered to be Kralik. As far as marks go, I should clarify ...
  5. The term Bauhaus is commonly applied as a misleading keyword in German ebay, to draw people to listings which have little to nothing to do with the term. The same practice as the seller of this piece ...
  6. "there is the name Bauhaus that also keeps coming up with these as a maker in Germany" Bauhaus is not a maker, it is a design style commonly referenced and used as a descriptive term. It indicates ...
  7. Confirmed with strong supportable empirical evidence, or documentation if found. Does not really matter who does it. What is most important is how.
  8. The arched marks of this form in general are accepted as being Kralik marks. The variations of this arched style can be found on examples of known decors/shapes that are Kralik production. I have n...
  9. Although the shape appears similar, neither of those décors have ever been confirmed to be by any house, so any talk of an attribution would certainly be quite premature.
  10. Thank You very much. I appreciate it.
  11. What a fabulous piece in a very uncommonly seen decor!!
  12. This appears to be a Welz shape to me also. It looks like this shape, although there is a difference I would note. http://www.kralik-glass.com/welz-images/variegatedgreenmica/wvgm1.jpg I have s...
  13. Here is the same shape in the easily recognized Kralik décor referred to as Banded". http://www.kralik-glass.com/kralik-images/banded/kb13.jpg Pretty Example you have there!!
  14. This Welz candlestick is found in at least 8 other Welz décors which are also linked to other known Welz shapes.
  15. Hi Volkmar, I am curious as to the source of the production sheet you are referencing? Thanks.
  16. Great Shape! Great Decor!!
  17. I personally like "Cabbage Leaf". :-) The organic aesthetic of this one is really outstanding.
  18. Actually in regards to baskets, although many look the same at a quick glance, there are subtle differences in execution, handle prunts and of course décors which allow the determination in many cases...
  19. Amethyst glass is in reality the most common way in which the appearance of "black glass" is produced. Amethyst use was incredibly prolific as it was a cheap color to produce. It's use is quite common...
  20. Not that it can be used as a definitive marker, but no pontil mark combined with a decorated rim would indicate the use of a gadget in production, and that would at least mildly support Welz as a poss...
  21. I am curious if the piece has a pontil mark or not?
  22. Thanks Warren..... I knew that..... I must have had a momentary memory lapse..... Old timers disease.... :-) Appreciate your correcting it though.....
  23. Great Find! Great Shape!!
  24. Wow22 The Pulled Loop example is proportionately larger than the Welz examples. There is also a more defined ridge where the lip transitions to the body flare on that example, where the Welz examples...
  25. This oval has been linked to production by Palda, and is not the same oval as the one used by Loetz.
  26. 1) Kralik 2) Unknown 3) Welz 4) Unknown
  27. 1) Loetz 2) Unknown 3) Unknown 4) Welz
  28. There are likely a very large number of Welz décors and shapes that have never been associated with them.
  29. The arched mark like this with split o's in the spelling is a mark generally accepted as an indication of Kralik production. Nice examples....
  30. Great examples.... and very nice "assortment". :-)
  31. Love this one! Great Shape and size!!
  32. The reason you see them posted occasionally as Kralik is because they were claimed for a long time by a Kralik researcher, to be by Kralik..... and internet myths really never die once they start.
  33. Here are a couple of other examples of Well documented Welz decors on the same shape. The decor on yours appears on a different shape in a Welz production literature page from 1928. http://www.kra...
  34. Thank You very much. I appreciate it a lot. Always glad to help. Great piece!!!
  35. This example is a piece of production by Franz Welz Klostergrab. Although the threaded examples like this are quite uncommon, the shape is seen in a couple of other décors by Welz. Great example. ...
  36. Use the "Macro" mode if the camera has one.
  37. I would be interested in seeing the mark. I do not know if it is Welz or not, and never really use the mark found on their production for ID, but would be interested in seeing it if is possible to get...
  38. I am generally not big on white glass either, but the colored handles on these Kralik pieces really add to the appeal.
  39. That is not the serial number, so not much help.
  40. Movado backs require a special tool to remove. Trying to remove it yourself may actually result in your damaging it. Dating Movados to specific years can be tough in that the company does not pub...
  41. The Mckinley Tariff Act of 1890 is when it was initiated in the US. Over a period of 30-35 years the rules changed a little. The 1920's, if memory serves me correctly, was the period in which remarks ...
  42. In regards to marking, I can not speak to Belgium and French marking laws as I have not investigated them. The US the requirement was that the individual pieces or items being imported be marked as...
  43. Another interesting pair in blue with a mark that has never been associated with Kralik production. Personally, it makes me wonder about the Moss Agate attribution.... http://www.collectorsweekl...
  44. Thank You very much. I am glad people find them interesting and appreciate your comment. Thanks also, to everyone else that has stopped by.
  45. I sent you an email yesterday....
  46. Luckily Rose, I got stoned and did not miss it!!
  47. I know that is all some people do..... It is after all, the beauty of the glass that drew us all to it in the beginning for one reason or another. :-)

  50. Great find. This décor is the same as the first piece of identified and labeled Welz I ever saw.
