    This basket has undergone an amazing number of production processes. It is a moulded shape with ten ridges on the outside , coinciding with ten ribs on the inside.The glass is clear except along the line of the ridges/ribs where there is opalescence. The opalescent lines start in the centre of the base and extend up to below the teal blue on the rim. The rim itself is in a crimp seen on other Welz pieces and topped off with a green thorn handle. On one side is an applied stem with two applied flowers and two applied leaves. The basket is on a small foot and the base has the scar of a snapped pontil.

    This is the first Welz basket I've seen with this type of applied flowers and foliage.

    Height 23 cm./9 inches

      Super gorgeous basket, that teal blue rim is a wonderful touch

      Indeed, Newfld, it stops the basket being insipid!

      I agree, the rim is such a gorgeous color. So much is going on here, and it all works together so well!

      And now, Michelle, I have to decide whether it goes with the Kralik applied flowers etc. or with the Welz fraternity.
    5. Michelleb007 Michelleb007, 3 years ago
      It has attributes of both, I'd say, so that may be a tough one! :)

      Fantastic! The teal is wonderful!

      Thank you, Sammyz, eye catching certainly.

      IronLace I was glad you posted yours as I'd forgotten them and they seem to share characteristics with the basket.

      Thank you, Ivonne, striking, as long as you didn't have many.
