This is for VioletOrange
Today someone 'loved' an old post by VioletOrange which showed a knuckle bowl and a basket with a looped thorn handle, both in a yellow and orange spatter. The basket being spatter on clear glass. There was inconclusive discussion of the bowl but the only reference to the basket came from Jericho, saying that he thought the basket was not Kralik.
I think that VioletOrange's basket is Welz. See the link below.
Pictures one and two show Welz baskets in the same shape as VioletOrange's basket.
Picture three shows a Welz basket with the same shape of thorn handle as on VioletOrange's basket.
Like VioletOrange's basket, picture four combines an Art Deco Welz décor (in this case 'Vertical Lines') with a Victorian period thorn handle. I find the Welz pieces that combine elements from two different periods very interesting, and hope to find more.
