    These are pink and white spatter glass vases from the Victorian period. Welz exported a vast quantity of glass to the UK at that time and so it is relatively easy to find now.

    The vases are standing on a clear foot of five feet crimped to look like leaves. There are four much larger 'leaves' going upwards. Prior to these vases I've always seen this foot with three upward 'leaves'. The third picture shows both versions.

    Height 23 cm./9 inches

      Hmm, I'm a late convert to pink.....and converts are always the keenest!

      Thanks for the loves, VioletOrange, Moonstonelover and welzebub.

      this is why I love the pink, it's just so pretty.....
    5. welzebub, 5 years ago
      I am curious as to the shape of the lower region of the middle piece.... Thanks....

      In the pink for sure! Could not be prettier.

      These are beautiful !...I wish some of those vast quantities would show up here in the US were I live. Guess they never arrived "over the pond" unless brought by immigrants, and then they most likely stayed in their families.

      Like Aphrodite arising from the sea foam !

      I wouldn't say we are swimming in it, but the tables are turned for this sort of ware in the UK vs the US compared to, say, some of the more Art Deco stuff that appears in Butler Bros. catalogues, which definitely appears to be more widely available in the US if Ebay and Etsy are a guide.

      Anne, I knew your sixth sense for all glass pink would bring you here pronto.... :-)

      I've added another photo, Craig, but if it doesn't suffice let me know.

      Hi, Karen, more ladies dressed to dance!!!

      Hi, mikelv, I suspect economics played a part. While they could sell all they needed to sell in the UK, why ship it further afield, i.e. to the US? However WWI and the enormous loss of British lives brought economic hardship here and glass was something families could do without! Here we have a fraction of the Art Deco Welz glass that is available in the US....to my disappointment! The grass is always greener......

      Hi, Ivonne, I like your metaphor and will see them differently in future :)
    15. sklo42 sklo42, 5 years ago
      I agree not swimming in it, Ian, but enough for you and me to go at!
    16. welzebub, 5 years ago
      That helped Peggy. I can see what I was looking for. Thanks.

      I have a similar shaped piece I have never identified, but the very bottom of it is different than your Welz example. The foot is different and it has applied rigaree, but the basic shape is there. The shape of that piece is not all that common, although you would think it would be.

      If I have a chance I will post it.

      I look forward to it, Craig.
