I'm also hooked on glass fairy or candle lamps and brass/glass kerosene era parlor lamps. My current topic of study (with lots of help from others) is colored glassware manufactured by Ruckl, Vcelnicka and Victorian Era Oil Lamps. Thanks to everyone who posts on CW as information is always appreciated and informative. (Read more)

  1. The orange lined spatter decor and the red lined spatter decor, each shown above, were found on the Ruckl labeled shape.
  2. One of the 6 decors shown above has been found with a Ruckl label. Can you add a picture of, or a link to the related example labeled Welz?
  3. Here's this CANARI SHIMMY decor displayed as Ruckl in a 2012 tango exhibit. The decor is once again illustr...
  4. Thank you FanciGirl for the CW Love!
  5. Thank you Leahpia for the CW Love!
  6. Most end of day glass decors are real live decors repeated on different/other shapes. These decors usually had nothing to do with leftover glass but were an actual line of production.
  7. Hello idclosonne, Great to hear from you! Thank you for the compliment and CW love. Best of luck with your research :)
  8. Thank you Alfredo for the CW Love!
  9. It is likely that Royal Art Glass, NY purchased products from multiple sources and added their label to all of it, not just the Welz stuff.
  10. Here's the location of the ca 1925 Royal Art Glass Office and Sample Room at 5-9 Union Square, NY It was located The Spingler Building which still stands today.

  15. oops, wrong link there, sorry.
  16. Is the last vase above a match to this vase by decor?
  17. What year was it made, moonstonelover21?
  18. Methodical analysis and research usually requires some sort of documentation as a start point. There are no known Welz catalogs. There have been no Welz labels found on anything even remotely similar ...
  19. Air Brushed, and possibly Ruckl
  20. Hey Sean, LIKEWISE!! Also,It was nice to read about your great find. Hope I get as lucky one day :)
  21. It's likely German metal on Czech Glass.
  22. Hey Jags, Great example and awesome collection, as usual! I believe I have a bottle in this shape posted on CW. Mine has a Royal Art Glass label and a "Kralik" decor. I believe mine is Ruckl although ...
  23. Thank you Anne, I believe the glass collection in the link is a private collection. Yes, Jags, Jericho, and others have similar kaleidoscope, marbled, or webbed decors posted on CW. There is an abunda...

  27. Thank you Phil for the CW Love!
  28. It's Whitefriars pattern number 9728, designed by Geoffrey Baxter. It's shown on page 24 of their 1972 catalog.
  29. It looks like Whitefriars Glass to me.
  30. Thank you bracken3 for the CW Love!
  31. Thank you GlueChip for the CW Love!
  32. Thank you Lisa-lighting for the CW Love!

  42. No problem Tom. I agree with aghcollect. Post away and don't be discouraged by anyone's ill mannered comments. Sometimes it's easier to say than to do but keep kicking, Man. Informative postings like ...
  43. The decor from the link in comment 14 is possibly the same decor as this perfume bottle with a Royal Art Glass importers label:
  44. Thank you Aimathena for the CW Love!
  45. Here's this shape in two additional decors:
  46. Did you think I was referring to the yellow vase too? Sorry if that was unclear at first.
  47. KS85, The yellow one? No wonder there is confusion! I'm referring to the red ball vase with two black handles.
  48. That's not what I said.
  49. It is my understanding that empirical research works well within the same shape. It is when it is used to jump from a documented shape to an undocumented shape that it is susceptible to error.
  50. The ball vase shape above that was identified as Rückl by The Museum of Glass in Novy Bor:
