  1. Well at least they were in a showcase- they do have 1000's unshown, packed away in dark basements and warehouses, are there any more of these pics?
  2. hahaha, Passau. I consider it Mecca- but my glass is marginalized, After the flood I saw normal carpenters dinging stuff around and stacking it like tupperware: )
  3. this would make a good trade....I Have seen a few with angular shapes but the piece is amazing shape, like broad facets!!
  4. Ian, I have some pics, send email to to remind me...
  5. OMG, Awsome. Cant wait to get to my images and find more of these
  6. love this example... I have many colors and shapes documented but this is the darkest brown I have (borrowed) for my pic collection; ) also the decor looks primitive, can we assume the maker of the...
  7. Also orange purple but I believe this is a variation of the red-purple
  8. I have this category of Czech glass that I playfully like to call "ugly as sin". This piece goes in that folder- Nice
  9. I like the shape comparison of pic one (i own the spiral with vertical stripe) picture 3 looks like Welz to me Picture 4 looks like Kralik based on a similar shape/pattern where the foot is metal
  10. Lisa, Great job! The complexity of the green adventuring over pink is just the beginning of great Ruckl decor... there are many more complex techniques that need to be seen
  11. cool set, I love the shapes
  12. Great job on the article! you suggest... "I think A. Ruckl was in a different class. More expensive to make and ship decorative glass pieces, due to their larger sizes and heavier weights." alth...
  13. you mean Ruckl right ?
  14. Kralik in releaf pattern, the piece is stunning. I have seen this pattern in a few colors.
  15. Kralik bowl, very interested in this stuff. I have seen the pattern only twice before in blue with yellow and purple and red. These are the same colors as the pull-up/pull-down pieces but yours appear...
  16. Welz shape in a cool pattern rarely seen-
  17. Love it, need it. I have one exactly like this that is a puny 12" and now I cant look at it without thinking of yours :o
  18. Probably Welz but Ruckl also could be it.
  19. I have seen this pattern on Harrach with silver rim, candlesticks from kralik but if this finish is slightly crackled iridescent it is most likely Welz. They can be found in my post for Welz - Satin f...
  20. killer, want 1 !!!
  21. its great in the glass, we are gonna figure this one out
  22. came with lil glasses and a carrying tray like a basket. great piece
  23. Wonderfull! Can you shoot me the whole page from BB? Jerichohair @ Yahoo . The two on the left are interesting because I thought they are Ruckl. They are also separated in the add... Suspicious. This...
  24. Congratz, I wish I kept the one i had, the flower was a daisy in clear yellow (flower itself was pressed glass) Same shape but the base was translucent white if memory serves correct, Cool!
  25. Cool Ruckl article, the lidded dish is probably Kralik because the shape and similar design on a piece found in a post:
  26. It is s very good decor, look at theRicke loetz book, a black and white picture of a competition with similar cameo decor...a good deal. The Viennese know what's good- you got a great deal
  27. My jaw dropped. Thank Craig! I want to make a t-shirt with that little image in the first pic! thanx for sharing
  28. I need this!!! Congratz, killer piece
  29. Thank you Craig for your research and focus on this amazing kind of glass
  30. I have a piece very similar to these in more recognized Kralik colors. Odd flashing iridescence on mind too! Would love to compare - post more pics or email me to exchange pics - jerichohair@yahoo
  31. I would like to see the same pieces posted with just the bottoms please. Jericho
  32. I call it drape decor on confetti. You can see this pattern is the same as drape pieces but the black and white rod (or molten glass spiral) is rarer... The same glass application can be seen in marbl...
  33. It's shows a shape and color I associate welz but I don't think that's nearly enough for positive ID. Would love to see it next to frog pieces from both companies! Great piece! Confetti pieces were ma...
  34. Hey, this was just a fun excersize trying to find actual pieces that match BB catalogues. It's was fun but not scientific, Craig has done more for Welz collecting than anybody, I credit him with highe...
  35. I like these, realy unique texture... They must have been thinking orange-skin texture
  36. Beautiful, these are great pieces in a tango display
  37. It's kralik in French flag colors 1920-30's
  38. yeah, this is the $H!t... turquoise... Rare and beautiful
  39. you should have more of this shape, they look great together
  40. sell it to me!!
  41. great vase for memorial holliday
  42. hey Thomas, does point 5 make sense? does the color match?
  43. 4 welz markers 1 foot is consistent with welz shape 2 the color of oxblood in the confetti was used in the custard pieces/confetti pull-ups 3 the line pattern (that created ridges or lines) can b...
  44. this is what i call a "link" common shape connecting all the welz tango to the lined decor
  45. thanx waren, yes agree. the design is done in silver relief.
  46. yes, it is loetz, I sold one through Dr. Fischer Auctions and they agreed with my attribution.
  47. thank you warren!!
  48. I believe the lines meeting was by accident although if the same metal mold was used the line count would be the same. the crews just indicate the lids were done separate from the bases... they may in...
  49. This pattern shows many clues as to how the decor was made. For one thing welz was the best at one thing... Packing so much depth of decor in the thinnest walled pieces, this shows a mastery in glass ...
  50. Welz, some of us have the shape but in different decors, I believe that decor has been seen on the fan vase with scalloped rim
