    This group of three Czech Tango glass vases all feature a crimped top.
    The deep orange vase has an applied cobalt blue trail around the top rim & also a serpentine type trail with arms around the body of the vase.
    It measures 18 cm tall, 9.5 cm across the top & 6.5 cm across the base.
    The pale blue vase has an applied black trail on the top rim & measures 21 cm tall, 10.5 cm across the top & 8 cm across the base.
    The orange vase has an applied white trail on the top rim & measures 20.5 cm tall, 10.5 cm across the top & 6 cm across the base.
    I have not seen many examples of Tango glass with a white trailed top.

      I am curious which of these, of any, have a pontil mark of any kind? I have one piece of glass with a white rim and a white snake/coil on the body, and it is a piece of Welz.

      Hi welzebub, none of these vases pictured have a pontil mark, they're all smooth underneath.

      That technique would point toward Welz as a maker. Not a single conclusive marker by any stretch of the imagination, but a very strong pointer.

      Here is my example with the white applied rim and coil/snake.

      I was going through some images looking for something today and came across a piece which I think confirms the 3rd piece with the white rim as a Welz example. It has a different crimp to the rim, but has the same coil and colors as my known example in the link above. Here is a link to an image of it, along with the example above from my collection.

      I also realized that I have the first shape in the same size in my Welz collection. I guess that is what happens when you have too many pieces of glass :-)

      My example is in a red ground with black applied rim and no pontil mark. It also has an acid mark on the underside that is commonly found on Welz production, but not used as a lone identification method. That mark is a small font "Made In Czechoslovakia" on a single line. The mark is also found in a form on 2 lines.
