    These Welz Triple Thorn vases are in an oxblood and yellow décor with a yellow inner casing and a clear outer casing. The thorns are clear, as are the applied feet. They are the tallest of my Welz pieces.

    On pulling the bottle brush out of one 'tube' I found it had a roll of paper around it. The roll turned out to be three raffle tickets. They predate Decimal Currency which began in 1971.....the prices are in shillings and pence. The prizes include National Savings Stamps which began in 1916, originally to fund WWI, but continued until 1976.

    Thus these little pieces of history must have been put in the vase before February 15th 1971. They'd been there for at least 45 far the most interesting items I've ever found in vases!

    Height 31 cm./12.25 inches.

      These look like an exotic sea plant from a wonderful coral reef.

      Hi Karen, or the wild imaginings of an 'I'm going to go one better glass designer'.
    11. sklo42 sklo42, 7 years ago
      Hello Freiheit, they are indeed. Czech glass houses commonly produced their designs in several sizes. However yours is in a rarely found décor, so big in different way!
    12. sklo42 sklo42, 7 years ago
      Hi Gruff.....who's this Mandy then?
    13. EZa EZa, 7 years ago
      I just love these! So colorful- great design. Wonderful!
    14. sklo42 sklo42, 7 years ago
      Thank you so much EZa, they're a little darker in real life..... it was sunny today.

      Neat.....and triple...Rare !!
    16. sklo42 sklo42, 7 years ago
      Valentino, I'm pleased you like these and some other recent postings. It's a minority taste but great fun finding the rarer pieces.....when you do, if you do!
      Mandy is perhaps just a mistake :)
    17. sklo42 sklo42, 7 years ago
      antiquerose Concise, pertinent and appreciated:) Thanks!

      how adoreable.... :)
    19. sklo42 sklo42, 7 years ago
      Thank you AnneLanders, LOL I'm only held back by the realisation that I'd have to wrap everything in bubble wrap before I could make my getaway!!

      I appreciate the lovely compliment too :)
