  1. Thank you Craig for your informative article, I can add only two details: the pieces are flash iridescent like a lot of iris pieces from Kralik. The thorns pull towards each other wich leads me to sus...
  2. Welz shape in a cool pattern rarely seen-
  3. 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
  4. Probably Welz but Ruckl also could be it.
  5. 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...
  6. killer, want 1 !!!
  7. its great in the glass, we are gonna figure this one out
  8. came with lil glasses and a carrying tray like a basket. great piece
  9. 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...
  10. 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!
  11. Cool Ruckl article, the lidded dish is probably Kralik because the shape and similar design on a piece found in a post:
  12. 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
  13. My jaw dropped. Thank Craig! I want to make a t-shirt with that little image in the first pic! thanx for sharing
  14. I need this!!! Congratz, killer piece
  15. Thank you Craig for your research and focus on this amazing kind of glass
  16. 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
  17. I would like to see the same pieces posted with just the bottoms please. Jericho
  18. 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...
  19. 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...
  20. 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...
  21. I like these, realy unique texture... They must have been thinking orange-skin texture
  22. Beautiful, these are great pieces in a tango display
  23. It's kralik in French flag colors 1920-30's
  24. yeah, this is the $H!t... turquoise... Rare and beautiful
  25. you should have more of this shape, they look great together
  26. sell it to me!!
  27. great vase for memorial holliday
  28. hey Thomas, does point 5 make sense? does the color match?
  29. 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...
  30. this is what i call a "link" common shape connecting all the welz tango to the lined decor
  31. thanx waren, yes agree. the design is done in silver relief.
  32. yes, it is loetz, I sold one through Dr. Fischer Auctions and they agreed with my attribution.
  33. thank you warren!!
  34. 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...
  35. 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 ...
  36. 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
  37. Great set, hard to find
  38. sellers remorse...
  39. all good identifiers of welz, the ridges, the black detail on the rim, the pattern and the punchouts, incredible piece for barter in my opinion (hint)
  40. Damnit!!!
  41. Very true, honestly the best way is to buy 1000 pieces of Czech glass, then the research makes more sense, Leah is correct when comparing decors like tango untill you have a set of 30 tango pieces the...
  42. 1a: kralik based on shape, this shape comes in marquetry and flame decors. 1b: welz based on shape of many tango pieces, I'm sure you have seen this shape before searching for "tango" 2a: the loo...
  43. I never noticed these pieces or liked them too much but when you get a bunch of them together in different colors... Magic
  44. I would have paid him asking price, run home then mail him $300 more from a safe distance.... How can you live with yourself!! Lol : ) That was a great find, congrats!
  45. Haha, I always find them without lids
  46. Yeah the color is more milky and the vase more snotty but the shape is the best, so odd
  47. yes, maybe... or even a slotted silver lid (and spoon) that fit inside for sugar lumps, ginger or jam
  48. well nobody wants to sell them but i come across about 8-10 per year, is that rare?
  49. sorry volume 3, here's the link
  50. no, thanx for asking. I can tie them in to Welz production by the base color on some, the decor on others and the shapes too... If you get a few pieces in the satin flash you can see how distincti...
