I feel as if I'm looking in the deepest part of the ocean... These Franz Welz glass pieces are very rare- in fact I am at a low on pics so if you feel generous (dear readers) please send me an email ( with more pics we can share.

Welz made many lamp shades in 6,8,12 and 24 sided shapes.

1. 12-sided footed bowl (with a detachable base as seen in a previous post) -this bowl has spine and elbow protrusions with a a honeycomb decor

2. 12-sided oval bowl (missing a foot) with claw protrusions in a tango bicolor decor

3. 24-sided lamp shade. I think they display great with vases and bowls!

4. Lastly... Sadly.... these two pics are the only times I have seen them is sets. By looking at them I wonder why the vases are bigger than the centerpiece (odd)... I use to see them sold like this on ebay very inexpensively and regret not collecting them earlier
