    In the spirit of continuing Jericho's grid posts, I am going to do 2 posts, this one with Deco Era interwar production by Welz, and then another post in 4 shapes lending themselves to an earlier aesthetic.

    4 shapes displaying 50+ examples of different decors by Welz. All of these shapes are linked to Welz production by multiple decors.

      Photo 4, top row, 4 across - a little more slender in shape?? Or just the perspective......?
      And photo 3 not updated with your recent acquisition?
      Love these images!!

      Perspective I think on that one. The decor is on a couple other shapes also. My new one is a different shape than those in image 3. Glad you like these. There are approx 525 Welz shapes I have identified.

      Got it. Body shape similar, very different foot.
      I suspect the number will rapidly go well beyond that, particularly if you include all the multitudes of blaaaaahskets.

      Love what you guys are doing with these shape/decor comparisons. Great work!

      Thanks Phil, I have been working with these grids since almost the beginning. It was a methodology that allowed me to track verified shapes and also decors. They have been hugely important to my research. I have also used grids to track shapes and decors to verify attributions of Welz pieces.

      Craig....I am loving it!!!!! I appreciate all the time, effort, and money you have put forth for the Welz cause!!!! Thank you!!!!!

      Thanks.... It really just started as a curiosity look at something, and in fact has become a much larger "beast" than I ever thought it would. The research led me where it led me with no real agenda or objective other than figuring out what they made that I could identify.

      Craig = king of shape comparisons
    9. jericho jericho, 1 year ago
      Craig, you have over 500 shapes documented? There are more posts to come then...
    10. welzebub welzebub, 1 year ago
      Yes Jericho, I have documented approx 525.... :-)

      Hi Craig, thank you for this very informative post (and the other one from the same day too)!

      Would you agree that the two groups of pieces (this post and the other one from the same day) are somehow divided, that decs from the group 1 are much more characteristic to shapes of group 1 and decs from 2 are characteristic to shapes 2? How would you explain it?

      This always made me wonder and I think it contributed a lot to the "Welz Wars" too.

      Would you please consider making a post demonstrating the crossovers (dec 1 shape 2 and dec 2 shape 1)?
    12. welzebub welzebub, 1 year ago
      Thanks MacArt. First of all, I am glad that you find these posts informative. I have house guests coming in a few days and may not have the time to do the post quickly. I do think that is an interesting question, and actually one that would be fun to look at. Worst case scenario is that I will look at it after my guests have left.

      Unfortunately, the Welz wars did not come from that type of information. The cause of it is a very long story, and a quite petty one, that I really do not care to discuss in detail here. MUch of it is actually very "soap opera" like. :-) For me, the vast majority of people involved in "critiquing" my work are no longer actively pursuing that activity. I really only have one vocally bothersome critic left in the forum. It would appear the remainder have decided that it was an activity with no actual benefit to them. It is also interesting to note that out of all of the forums I am active in, this is the only one where that activity occurs.

      Those that understand me and my work, understand that I am cautious and conservative in my approach. Initially the "war" was over my methodology and my results, but with time, both have been born out as being useful and accurate. That has done more to "silence" my critics than anything else.
