    I'm a bit more sure about this one. This hexagonal bud vase seems to be somewhat of an iconic shape for Welz though the tripod legs may be a little unusual (not for Welz but for this shape). The legs are very black by the way. Vase stands 6" (15.2 cm) tall.

    Side by side comparison of these two pieces shows considerable difference between the two application techniques.

      Especially beautiful for this vase to have its own stand !~

      Great example is a classic Welz shape. Love this on the tripod legs.

      I would be very interested in seeing this and the other unidentified piece in the similar decor photographed side by side.

      WOW-- that is great! Love the black legs.

      Thanks Harry!
      That shows exactly what I suspected it might. Same photo and they look pretty different. As a result of this comparison at least, I am very comfortable maintaining the position that the winged piece is by an unknown house.

      Could it be Welz? Sure..... but there would need to be a number of strong links developed to support a Welz attribution for it. This added image shows why I feel that spatter decors, especially very simple ones, can be difficult to identify as to maker, and why shapes become a critical factor in maker attributions that will stand the test of time.

      Thanks again!

      I did see that this piece had an additional red color glass spatter, which was not so obvious in the first image, but certainly is in the last image, so you are comparing a 3 color spatter with a 2 color spatter. Does not necessarily mean a different producer, but the shapes do indicate that.

      This is not a three color spatter - the darker, red-looking spots are just an unfortunate result of the lighting.

      Really? Must be a red and yellow spatter then, where the red is applied on top of the yellow glass, it becomes orange. Interesting.
