    A trio of three-handled bud vases by Welz probably dating to pre-WWI production. Left to right, the first is 6 5/8 " (17 cm) tall, clear-cased with a pulled spatter decor featuring elements of burgundy and blues with a touch of ocher on a white ground. This and both of the others have added peaked handles that trail into a pinched rigaree. The second stands 7 5/8" (18.3 cm) tall, also clear-cased, has a burgundy and blue spatter on a yellow ground. The third stands 7 1/4" (18 cm) tall, clear-cased over a "Honeycomb Harlequin" decor. This vase has a six-lobed base and the decor pulls into a blur as it rises up the neck. None are marked.

      Great selection.....all three handled and all different! They're never marked over here (U.K.) and probably not over there before McKinley, 1890. I don't know how that plays with dating them. I've never seen any Welz of this style posted here with any mention of a Mark. Interesting......

      Yeah, no marks were used in the identification of this or similar wares. Great observation.

      Thank you Peggy. Two of these vases were purchased from England and the third probably came from there at some point. Though I generally gravitate towards marked pieces, the decor on these pieces was recognizable enough that I thought them a welcome addition to my collection. I believe that at least the style of these represents an earlier aesthetic though I realize there can be some question about the actual production dates.

      Thanks all for the love.

      I thought that it may well have been the case, Harry, that some of these came from England. The style would still have been fashionable between 1890 and 1900 in Europe. However until an example of this aesthetic turns up on your side of the pond with a mark (maybe never) we'll continue believing they were only exported to other European countries.

      Collectors of vintage clothing, furniture etc. date by style, if only loosely. In this case the change from Frilly Victorian to Art Deco can be be seen in Welz production......even if no exact date is possible.

      Charcoal says: "Yeah, no marks were used in the identification of this or similar wares. Great observation."

      The "great observations" come from studying and understanding this type of glass. For those actually willing to pay attention, the glass itself tells you more than any provenance marks indicating which country it was made in.
