    Here are more pieces from Franz Welz that I call umbrella shapes. They are getting harder to find and can be recognized by a silver foil label applied to the side or a "made in Czechoslovakia" stamp on the base, (faintly applied).

    You can study similarities across the board by looking at them together...
    1- For example the punch-outs can number from 16 to 4 (not pictured).
    2- Pieces range from 4" to 10" - rarely higher than about 10"
    3- The glass is always thin on the rim and thicker on the base
    4- Rarely do they have pontils
    5- The casing glass may be embossed; similar to those thorny handled baskets
    6- They are rarely flashed
    7- They are rarely made without applied rims; (black or cobalt)
    8- The punch-outs produce tiny multiple horizontal cracks to the base glass- but this is normal and not damage to the piece
    9- These pieces are rarely damaged- strange but true!!
    10- Enjoy, collect, share...
