    Since there have been discussions of thorn vases on CW lately, I wanted to share one I have had for a few months that I find to be quite unusual. It is a single thorn vase, in an unusual soft peachy-pink, transitioning to green at the rim. It may be hard to see in my picture, but it is finished in a flashed iridescence, which I have never seen on other thorn vases before.

    The reason I suspect my thorn vase to be Welz is that (besides the fact that I obviously believe Welz made thorn vases) I have seen quite a few Welz glass baskets (they often have a distinctive molding pattern on the body and twisted or thorny handles) in the same unusual shade of peachy-pink and green. When I discussed this with Welzebub (Craig) several months ago, he mentioned that he had seen examples of Welz glass in a flashed finish. So while I am not sure of the maker of my particular thorn vase, I do personally feel it could definitely be another example of a Welz thorn.

      Great example. I love this one and find it to be a very unusual color combo with an interesting transition through the vase......

      Although certainly not definitive proof, it certainly bears a strong resemblance to this group of Welz production. Not a commonly seen decor of pink and green done in this manner.

      Nice One!!

      Does the green glow under black light ? I love this colour combination. Very Czech.
    8. welzebub, 6 years ago
      I can say that the ones in my pics in the same décor do... to varying degrees, but they all glow reasonably well.
    9. Michelleb007 Michelleb007, 6 years ago
      Vetraio, I had never even thought of checking before, but I just went and used my black light on it - the green portion of the vase glows quite brightly.
    10. welzebub, 6 years ago
      So all 5 examples of a décor that appear quite similar, also react to UV similarly.....

    18. Vintagefran Vintagefran, 6 years ago
      Sorry Michelle, I see you've already answered my questions, I should have finished reading the comments. Lol. Lovely vase btw :)

      The shape of the feet on your thorn vase also appears on thorn vases in known Welz spatter vases. Something I didn't know two years ago :)
    20. Michelleb007 Michelleb007, 4 years ago
      Thank you, Peggy. I do believe this piece to be Welz now. Good to know about the feet shape! :)
