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.
