    This vase is identical to the one beside it in image four, except that this is a plain, translucent amber. Both have a 'quilted' surface texture and four ribs going from rim to base.

    The basic shape came from a mould and Welz used the mould the other way up to make a very different looking vase. An example of that vase has been posted here by IanBrighton. A link below the line will take you to Ian's post.

    Height 22.5 cm./9 inches

      Good to see your new posts and new additions!

      Thank you, Ivonne. I've very little time at the moment.....not helped by grey rainy days which make photography difficult!

      I think the quilting is a bit lost on the spatter vase, so it's great to see the effect on the amber. I love the lines left by the mould too - those clever Czechs!

      I agree, Karen, that this example of the shape gives a much clearer view of both quilting and ribs. The ribs however are part of the design rather than the inadvertent escape of glass due to poor mould work.
      The link below shows the rim of the spatter version where the three layers of the convex rib can be seen.

      I did think they were a deliberate rib Peggy but assumed they had used that section to hide the mould line. Is that right or are there lines elsewhere? Or none at all?
    7. sklo42 sklo42, 11 months ago
      I do apologise for doubting your knowledge, Karen. I can't see or feel any trace of a mould line anywhere. This is pretty well the norm for both Welz and Kralik moulded pieces.

      I think you likely could find one, Fran.
