Here is my last addition to my Czech/Bohemian collection, even I am not to sure about the attribution, my intuition go to Welz, I gone need some help to confirm.
This marvellous piece of Art deco period is composed of 3 layer of glass, clearly define around the rim.
Cobalt Blue ground, multicolour zippered design compose the middle layer, finished with a clear coat highly reflective.
The shape is beautiful, very heavy for the size.

This vase stand 6 inch tall, 6.25 inch at the widest portion

    @rob3rt, I will be more than surprise that this was Murano art glass, but hey appreciated your insight on this post.

    I love this decor..... Nice find!! These are not Welz production. I have studied them for quite a while and have never been able to attribute them with any degree of certainty. There is a page of them on my website as an unknown house. I refer to the decor as Zippered Flame. I do not have an image of this shape. Is it OK if I copy your pictures and use them?

    Here are some others.

    Good morning.
    Sure, I am more than happy to do some contribution to your web site.
    Is the black background is ok for you, I can retake it with White if you like better.
    I see on the page they all white background.
    Many thanks for commenting always appreciated your inputs.

    Nice piece. This is the most popular base color of this series, includes every shade you can imagine... Its Czech 1030's but no maker can be attributed... used to call them "Marbled" or "Zig-zag marbled" but now I agree with Craig "zipper" or zipper flame is good. I will add that there are many types of zipper patterns from many different companies. I love the vivid colors on yours
