    I had to buy this basket as it's a décor I've not seen before. The handle is the Welz take on a thorn handle......I have a few. The base is typical of Welz baskets......rough pontil. Stripes coming from the centre, like spokes of a wheel, are also seen on knownWelz striped décors. Finally the pink interior is a pink I have on another Welz Item. The green is not aventurine.

    So, not the most beautiful basket ever seen, but another Welz striped décor for my collection. I could only hazard a guess on its period so I'm leaving that alone!

      This is very cool... I've never seen this décor before either.

      Thank you welzebub......I always appreciate 'cool' :)

      I had this on my watch list! I thought it was something different & it has my favourite colour combination of pink & green, too. Glad to see that it's now part of your fabulous collection!

      I'm glad it didn't get to the top of your list, IronLace. Thank you for the lovely compliment :)

      My pleasure! I was strongly considering a bid on this, but ended up going with something else...which will hopefully turn up in a few weeks! All I will say is that it's seriously fancy... :-)

      Oh, what a cool one!! I have never seen one like it before - what a terrific find, sklo! You are so good at hunting out the especially unusual Welz pieces! :)

      Thank you for your kind words, Michelle. Nowadays it's the rarer shapes and décors that interest I suppose I'll be posting less Welz!

      I've not come across this decor before and wouldn't have known it was Welz. I'm seeing stripes everywhere this morning!
    11. sklo42 sklo42, 4 years ago
      Stripes are the new black! Actually it was the handle that caught my attention as I have that style of thorn handle on about six baskets in known Welz décors.

      I have a basket with the same décor....only I believe the one I have has adventurine in the green. I will try to post soon as I keep telling myself it is time to start posting my pieces!!!!!!

      Glad to hear from you, cornhusker, I always enjoy your posts!

      Very nice Peggy, congrats! You must be thrilled to find a Welz piece with a unknown decor... I'm sure that makes it extra special :-)
    15. sklo42 sklo42, 4 years ago
      Hi Rick, it's not that unusual to find unknown décors here, as Welz shipped an awful lot of glass to the UK in the Victorian/Edwardian period. That said some finds are particularly pleasing and this was one of them :-)
