  1. Nice examples. I believe the PéDéBé label/mark is an importers or retailers mark. I have also seen it on the underside of some china pieces, such as a small enameled dresser set. In the case of the...
  2. The arched mark on the pieces are recognized as confirmation of their Kralik production. Nice examples.
  3. Fabulous piece... congrats...
  4. Hello again. I have no real idea who produced them. It is not uncommon to see this décor pattern with the same type of center mark on the base....... As far as my website goes..... I appreciate you...
  5. Both of these are wonderful examples of MOP glass. I am of the opinion that the second vase is likely Kralik production. The MOP page on Kralik-glass.com is down because I am of the belief that...
  6. They did not "document" that it was 30% others...... Stating a 70% attribution does not imply it is 30% someone else..... just that 30% (at the time) is unknown when they wrote the book. It would ap...
  7. It would appear that you may be among a very very small crowd of people in the world, possibly even limited to only this forum, that do not recognize the arched mark as being a Kralik mark. Nothing a...
  8. Here is a link to the pic of it. Last on the right. http://cf.collectorsweekly.com/stories/1QKs.mI1NfPj9VEyM2BFOg.jpg
  9. This is a Kralik décor and shape. The example in the first link bears a recognized Kralik mark. In addition to having a recognized Kralik mark, the shape is not likely a shape produced by multiple com...
  10. I have the first shape in the first pic in pink and green aventurine. I agree that they are all Welz production. nice grouping.....
  11. An ecample of this distinctive shape was in the Tango exhibit in 2012 in the Welz case. Nice pair in a great color.
  12. Very possibly a Kralik blank, decorated and sold by Hosch. Nice example.
  13. One of my favorite décors and color combinations. Nice one!!
  14. That décor is also found on tri-lobed heart vases, a recognizably distinct Welz shape.
  15. I have the middle shape with the same feet and style of upshooting rigaree in two other Welz décors. The pink twisted stripe décor like these examples is not sup0er common, so I would lean toward Welz...
  16. Great find... Not seen this décor on one of these before....
  17. "She also had some great stories about glass manufacturers would sue each other but in the declaration phase they would omit certain details of their glass formulas hoping to win the case but not divu...
  18. Great stuff!!
  19. I also meant to add that it is surely possible that multiple houses made the shape, as it is not extremely distinctive. In that case the ID of an example could be made through decors and labels if fou...
  20. For what it is worth, I believe that the example in the Shimmy link is actually an example of Welz production. Although rim shapes vary a little based on how they were cut by the gaffer, the shape is ...
  21. I believe this to be by Franz Welz also. Great piece at a great price!! NIce score.
  22. Very unusual.... nice example.....
  23. Great piece.... I would agree with the attribution to Galliano Ferro. One of my favorite Italian color combinations.
  24. 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...
  25. 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...
  26. 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...
  27. 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.
  28. 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
  29. You are welcome Jericho.... at this point it is a pleasure to continue it.....
  30. Thanks Jericho.... it is quite unusual.... and very colorful!
  31. Thanks Jericho..... pretty exciting stuff...
  32. 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...
  33. The blue example is a shape documented in Welz literature.... Nice one!
  34. Nice find on this one. It is definitely Bambus and not Flame. Bambus in an orange ground is a little more unusual. Nice one....
  35. Classic Welz décor. The shape is documented in factory production literature. Nice!!
  36. Can't wait to see it.... Love seeing new glass!!
  37. My pleasure... Sorry I could not be of more help. Welcome to CW by the way....
  38. 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...
  39. 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...
  40. Hello Weena. Post some good pics to show and tell in Bohemian glass and then comment here and I will take a look.
  41. 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....
  42. 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.
  43. 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...
  44. Thanks Kyle....
  45. A beauty Frank!!
  46. Thanks to everyone for taking a look....
