These miniature hexagonal vases are probably my favourite Welz pieces. This one is in the décor known as Pink and Green Aventurine, though my pictures have failed to capture the sparkle of the aventurine. The pink and green are however nicely balanced on this piece.
This décor mostly appears on the more ornate Welz from the Victorian period though this shape, because of its angularity, would seem typical of the Art Deco period. Thus it's difficult to date this piece.
Image four shows it with another that has a décor from the Victorian period and one with a décor from the Art Deco period. The shapes vary slightly.
