Here are a few pieces from my collection, I invite comments or links on the pieces
1. This vase is a small (8”) vase similar in shape to one I own that is 12” in a purple iridescence with yellow drape in the same pattern. This red one is unsigned but the other one is; “made in Czechoslovakia” in a horizontal line. These are believed to be kralik. The construction of these types is very complex with 4-5 layers of decor
2. These are 14” kralik vases. One is a confetti and caned iris decor and the other is a cased adventurine with bits of iron (rust). The arch signature is on both of them even though the green one might not be a kralik (see shape).
3. Two Welz vases (neither signed) in a variation of sizes. You can see the size variations don’t look alike; That can happen according to size.
4. This is s fine 4” vase with confetti coming from the rim. Although it seems simple enough it a very rare application, this would mean that the glass blower would sprinkle glass chips next to the connection of the vase to the punty rod rather than dipping the vase into a bucket of glass chips such is more traditional.!the piece is signed in the oval Ruckl-type mark.
