    This Welz shape documented (see Craig's post)- all the pieces are of the exact same shape. These highly decorated pieces are just over 4" in height; the shape is somewhere between a bowl and a vase "a cup" I call it. The foot is flat with rounded shape and a small waist. the upper portion is almost organic because of the hand-worked rim.

    Cup Grid Parameters :

    1 shape
    1 rim types (all applied with a black thread of glass)
    Light weight
    Just over 4" in height
    Many decors

    1 - This shows a few interesting things:
    A). The pink "Step ladder" that Thomas discovered and Craig named is very rare. it appears to me to be a variation of "line and bubble decor)
    B). The two green "line and confetti" pieces seem the same but if you look carefully you will see a different amount of lines in each- so the construction was different; therefore unique decors even though the glass supplies were the same
    C.) The blue/green satin flashed piece in the lower right is the only time I have seen this decor with a black thread rim

    2 - Notice the three pink pieces at the bottom (line and confetti) They have slight variations in the confetti color

    3 - Notice the tango piece- it is lonely: (..... as it appears to be the only one on this grid

    The last grid (decorated grid) contained no "Line and confetti" decor yet they are common in this grid.
    There is only one piece of black-based glass, all others are white or tango base colored.
    As you can see there, there is space for another image to upload- so if you are sitting on a decor that is not on this grid please post a link or send me a pic and I will credit you.

    P.S. Thank you Craig, Thomas, Dwight, Dirk and Kelly

      The shape of the base of the cup which has a thinner stem that widens into a pedestal foot seems to have several variations, perhaps over time several molds were used. The most different in a shorter and thinner stem would be between the yellow piece on the bottom far right and the 4th from the left top row, in dark yellow and stripes. Keeping the same angled of image in mind.
