  1. An example of "Iconic" Deco by Chase..... Love these.... Elegant simplicity at it's finest....
  2. Now this is gorgeous.... and I am not all that enamored with enameled pieces....
  3. Thanks for the Loves and comments....
  4. There are a small number of pieces like this attributed to Kralik. They are not very common, making this a real treasure..... The décor was identified as also being Kralik when both an inkwell and ...
  5. The glass can be replaced, but they are generally expensive because they kind of have you by..... well you know.... :-)
  6. Great design... great lines... great find...... Love it!!!
  7. "We are not allowed to sell or advertise on this site. My email is on my home page." Forum policy also prohibits the posting of items actively for sale in any forum.
  8. Kyle, oddly.... the pink shows more in these pics with a flash than it does to the naked eye.....
  9. No shipping needed Rose.... it was a local auction and I carried it home from there.... :-)
  10. Actually, I have many people pushing me to write a book on the subject. I have recently made a long distance move, and when I am settled in I will likely start looking seriously at the project. I am...
  11. It is about as MCM as a piece of Italian glass can get!! It would fit right in with many of the items you have..... but sadly...... it stays here!!
  12. Nice assortment of pieces. As far as ID's go, there is far more Czech/Bohemian glass that is unidentified and will likely remain that way, than there is "known production". But here is what I can pe...
  13. I have no idea who made this, and can not remember having ever seen a piece like this before....... but the décor is fabulous, and was extremely difficult to execute this well.
  14. A couple of things. 1) Mounts simply point in most cases to a refiner or metal maker. Generally, my ecperience is that they rarely point to a glass house..... 2) Utilizing auction houses as at...
  15. This example strikes me as a possible variant of "Honeycomb Panels". Nice one!!
  16. Absolutely Fabulous piece!! Cool shape & outstanding color!!
  17. I should have stated above that the blueprints for the production facility Antonienhütte are dated 1894..... not built in 1894..... it is possible it was either a new facility, or was a remodel of a...
  18. Did Welz do inkwells? That question has not been answered yet....... Certainly can not say they did not..... but can not say they did either..... "Welz is an INVENTION." Seriously?? You are sti...
  19. With glass like this, the more you learn.... the less you know..... :-)
  20. Hello, This is actually an example of Kralik production. It is a "décor shift" done in a manner so as to appear similar to the Loetz Pampas décor. A very nice example in a nice mount.
  21. 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...
  22. The arched mark on the pieces are recognized as confirmation of their Kralik production. Nice examples.
  23. Fabulous piece... congrats...
  24. 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...
  25. 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...
  26. 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...
  27. 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...
  28. Here is a link to the pic of it. Last on the right. http://cf.collectorsweekly.com/stories/1QKs.mI1NfPj9VEyM2BFOg.jpg
  29. 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...
  30. I have the first shape in the first pic in pink and green aventurine. I agree that they are all Welz production. nice grouping.....
  31. An ecample of this distinctive shape was in the Tango exhibit in 2012 in the Welz case. Nice pair in a great color.
  32. Very possibly a Kralik blank, decorated and sold by Hosch. Nice example.
  33. One of my favorite décors and color combinations. Nice one!!
  34. That décor is also found on tri-lobed heart vases, a recognizably distinct Welz shape.
  35. 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...
  36. Great find... Not seen this décor on one of these before....
  37. "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...
  38. Great stuff!!
  39. 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...
  40. 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 ...
  41. I believe this to be by Franz Welz also. Great piece at a great price!! NIce score.
  42. Very unusual.... nice example.....
  43. Great piece.... I would agree with the attribution to Galliano Ferro. One of my favorite Italian color combinations.
  44. 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...
  45. 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...
  46. 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...
  47. 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.
  48. 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
  49. You are welcome Jericho.... at this point it is a pleasure to continue it.....
  50. Thanks Jericho.... it is quite unusual.... and very colorful!
