  1. Very nice blanks.... I like them better without gold lacing. Nice set
  2. Great set, hard to find
  3. sellers remorse...
  4. 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)
  5. Damnit!!!
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. I never noticed these pieces or liked them too much but when you get a bunch of them together in different colors... Magic
  9. Comes in blue with red spots too, cool pieces
  10. 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!
  11. Haha, I always find them without lids
  12. Yeah the color is more milky and the vase more snotty but the shape is the best, so odd
  13. yes, maybe... or even a slotted silver lid (and spoon) that fit inside for sugar lumps, ginger or jam
  14. well nobody wants to sell them but i come across about 8-10 per year, is that rare?
  15. I have to disagree with my old buddy Al, these pieces were probably mass produced and didn't require more skill than any other piece did (about the same)... If you analyze the techniques one by one th...
  16. Leas shape comparisons are great. It ties them in to what i would call "confetti pieces" and tango. There is also one of these pieces signed....its that wide oval mark that looks like a football (foun...
  17. sorry volume 3, here's the link
  18. 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...
  19. ... if anybody cares I'm doing another Welz series of satin decor...
  20. I told ya son! it a new kind of beast!! NOT mass produced cased glass in mold type stuff
  21. I can look, send me email request: In this post I was trying to show how the same finish appears on three kinds of decor, please look at other Welz flash finish posts and see ot...
  22. Warren, I always love your posts but here I have to dis-agree a little bit (for fun). It is a late piece but "tango"definitely! Tango because. the casing and solid color. These geometric stripes remin...
  23. Some mother-in-law must have hated her son's choice in marriage to the bitter end-because these soaps were unused! P.s. this technique of surface pebble application (confetti) without casing glass...
  24. Email me, ...if I can help, it is my pleasure
  25. PS: does anyone have any information on Erphila glass, pottery or business practices?
  26. Very interesting in many ways... next we have to find a barrel with 24 czech vases with the packing hay inside and czech-slovakia branded on the side. keep looking!!
  27. AAAAH, why did i let you go???
  28. Thank you very much guys!! if anyone has a piece and they want my opinion just email me and i will give advice or refer you to a mentor of mine...
  29. thank you for the loves, im not sure i want to wade in these waters about loving and reloving pieces because as a society we tend to get addicted to confirmation, approval and validation... with that ...
  30. glossy pieces like this are at least as rare as those rootbeer types... Although marquetry pieces are not too rare they are cery desirable
  31. charcoal, thanks for the link but those marks are not difinitive... they do help with kralik attribution but standing alone the silver mark resembles the kralik arched mark but the curve is different ...
  32. sean, probably not although Kralik did do this rootbeer color decor almost exactally like this one (but not as thick)... that pontil doeskin seem kralik to me and the layers of confetti also point awa...
  33. Wow, thank you for the discovery. looks like these are kraliks. I resisted for years because the finish and shapes are so unique. thanx
  34. nope, saw it in a show, there is a collector that also has at least 30 of this exact shape in different decors.... come to czech convention he will be there
  35. killer, love pontil
  36. crazy
  37. great piece, does it glow when lit from the top? is the satin like an oily satin, sand-papery or frosted?
  38. great piece, you sure they are made by the same maker?. love the set
  39. love the decor or as many shapes as you can find
  40. There is one out there in rainbow colors with a pronounced wave pattern
  41. Simple, perfect... It looked crappy when I had it, nice photography
  42. Looks good upside down too!
  43. p.s. the single florette comes in cobalt blue enamel (i need a picture of it badly!!!!). it also comes in a (rare) white enamel on lavender base glass with crystal clear handles...(will send you a pic...
  44. for Sean: it is the black and white one... it might only come in black and white but may come in orange or royal b...
  45. please notice the difference between the single florette, Wilms florette and the peche-style florette While Wilms is the most expensive to get the single florette is the rarest!
  46. great post!! after returning to Passau for the 4th time I saw that last photo on the right in many shapes. I'm convinced it is Loetz
  47. i think we all do, the descriptions make sense with the decor, tango with cased copper flakes are a simpke enough decor to copy.... so then other things like shape, size, thickness and rim types becom...
  48. great piece
  49. it should be pressed glass with paint or fired enamil, probably 1950's hope this helped.
  50. Yeah, it's mine. I don't see enough of the any more they seem to be in the US more than Europe, email me if you want some pics of glue chip variations you are missing
