Here are 4 tango cottage glass vases or ewer pitchers likely manufactured by Antonin Rückl & Sons, Vcelnicka. This posting is mainly about the ewer shape and the rainbow or peacock honeycomb decor shown in photo 1.
The red lined decor on the ewer vase in photo 2 matches the decor shown on the tall vase in photo 2. The tall vase shape in photo 2 and this red lined spatter decor are identified as Ruckl using documentation from the manufacturer, an Antonin Rückl & Sons, Vcelnicka paper label.
This Ruckl label design was registered in 1903 per the Glasmarken Lexicon.
The shape of the ewer vase in the rainbow honeycomb spatter decor, photo 1, matches the shape of the ewer in the red lined Ruckl decor, photo 2. This is an indication that the rainbow honeycomb cottage glass ewer was manufactured by Ruckl.
These shapes are not illustrated in any Butler Brothers Wholesale Catalog. There are no related decors or related shapes labeled Welz.
It is very likely that more than one manufacturer mass produced honeycomb glass therefore it is not my intention to label all honeycomb glass as Ruckl.
All constructive comment and questions are welcome.
