    My collection, not grouped in any particular order, but what fit and looked attractive. There are more shelves and displays around the house.

    Image 2: Glass that has much in common, and has been attributed to Welz. This was a curiosity being satisfied. A recent post discussed the timeline of these glass pieces, and there was no definite answer. I believe there is a range, from early 20th to 1930s, I also believe some were made later, where? I don't know. The quality and composition of the glass does vary.

    Image 3: Potential Ruckl and Kralik glass pieces. Czech period.

    Image 4. The mix of bigger glass pieces, Kralik, Josephinehutte, Ruckl and some unknown. Czech period.

    Image 1: An orange satin glass lamp base from France, with a Ruckl bowl/shade in the orange spatter glass. Not marked. Czech period.

      Lisa, to whom do you attribute the piece on the far-right in image two ? It looks like green fading to clear with an enamel decoration.

      That's one of my Carl Goldberg decorated glass vases, with silver deposit and an Art Nouveau style. I collected quite a few of those glass pieces but most of them had lost their silver and only the etched outline was left. There is one piece with the same glass colors but with an owl sitting on a branch. Most of these pieces are on the small side. 4 to 6 inches.
      Here is another one with similar color treatment in blue and green.

      Wow. Easy to see you don't have an indoor cat! Love these!

      kwqd, 2 dogs with big wagging tails can be dangerous

      That's why most of the glass is elevated on the walls and bookcases. Thanks for the love.

      The lamp looks like such a fun piece to make me think of some whimsical giant carrot!

      Hey Watchsearcher, I find it fascinating how colors were so trendy during the 20th that we can tell which decade we are dealing with in decorative and utilitarian items.
      Especially the 20-30s, and the 60-70s period of avocado, mustard and smokey brown.
      Thanks for the comment and love.

      Oh, how I recall those colors of the 60s and 70s!!
      My parents built us a new house in the 60s so the kitchen had avacado green Formica counter tops, brown wood cabinets, green sink (which is lying out behind my shed now),and the flooring was something to behold! 12” X 12” tiles of some composition like vinyl with that yellow named “Harvest Gold” and a bold pattern.

      The young man who bought my parent’s home after their deaths periodically sends me pictures of what he finds as he remodels. He found that original tile kitchen floor and the original “peel and stick” kitchen sink backsplash- kind of a wipeable vinyl wallpaper/shelf paper.
