    'Smalls' is an auction term, one that the internet bidders enjoy seeing. They usually represent nice small decorative pieces, the medium does not matter, and not so small that it should be described as a miniature.

    My Czech glass grouping have been accumulated for over 5 years, some are utilitarian such as perfume or bath salt bottles, or liquor set, or pretty cabinet or curio types of pleasant art glass items, or dining table accessories.

    Time frame is 1900-1940 or so.


    P.S. Oct 4th 2019
    I have removed all mention of my favorite detractor off my site. Decision is to now join the 'it is not worth the time and effort' crowd. In the meantime, since site was re-published today, my navigation site bar has been shut down by? So it will take some time to redo and make all the pages available again.

      Funny, a small group of people have a huge problem with the Welz research and collector beliefs. Could be a huge group of people who have a small problem with the Welz attributions, but not enough to create an issue about it.

      As far as the spiraloptich decor seen here ( I also own one of these, see front of image), the study has been going on for years now, with no resolution either way it seems. I guess that means, it could be either glass producers, perhaps time will reveal more.

      Of course I believe it is Kralik, in their semi translucent cranberry glass with molded decor, which also includes many others such as martele, draped, honeycomb, veined, etc, decors chosen in several other Kralik decorative colors of early 20th century, such as green, amber, clear, white, and cobalt glass.

      Celebrate with your favorite glass and make a CW festival out of it, that is what this site is about. For me it's always about the glass first, attributions come second. Always, I find there is none equal to Czech glass pieces, pre and post WWII.
