The red, yellow, black spatter decor has been identified as a decor used by Franz Welz Klostergrab. In the Welz section on the Kralik-glass.com website there is a panel showing this decor on a large variety of shapes that I'm betting is only a small sample of the shapes produced in this decor. I offer this as one more.
This piece stands 8" (20.2 cm) tall and has a diameter of 3 1/2" (8.8 cm) at the top and bottom. From what I've seen, this is a somewhat variable shape in the middle and a shape that was probably used by several glass houses. Attributing this to Welz by shape alone would probably not be a good idea but a recognizable decor is a more useful indicator.
Since the red, yellow, black spatter also contains oxblood frit and is on a clear ground, the third picture shows it alongside a recognized Welz shape in the same decor and also on a clear ground. That piece also clearly has oxblood frit in the mix.
The fourth picture shows acid-stamp marks on the bases of the two vases. Both are marks that are often found on Welz products.
I don't want to ring the bell too loudly but the evidence seems to tell me this is a Welz piece.
