    This is without doubt Welz's production.It has a lot in common with other Welz's baskets e.g. the shape of a lower part and the surface structure or type of a pontil mark.I bought it from a very known and honored professional,the author of a book which is often cited,on CW too,but her attribution was different.This confirm my opinion that Welz and his extremely various and abundant production is still a kind of a niche,particularly in my country.

      I'm curious - what was her attribution?

      IF the book is old it could predate the recent mushrooming expansion of knowledge on Welz.
    3. Ivonne Ivonne, 2 years ago
      Her attribution was Kralik

      Peggy,the book was released in 2012.I've read some reviews in which her attributions (not concerning Welz) were discussed.

      This is a great piece, a classic Welz basket in an unusual decor. I am curious as to the title of the book you are referring to, if you would be so kind.
    6. Ivonne Ivonne, 2 years ago
      The title is "Fritz Heckert.Kunstglas Industrie".I wouldn't like to be misunderstood.I just wanted to say that I bought the basket from the author of the book and her opinion was different.

      Thanks.... I understand. I was simply curious. Zelasko is firmly entrenched with the Passau, and the Glasmuseum Passau has very little interest in Welz production. It was not a line or style of glass that the founder of the museum George Höltl had much interest in.
    8. Ivonne Ivonne, 2 years ago
      I entirely agree.The book was published in German only and it is not likely to be published in Polish. dr Zelasko was a longtime researcher at The Giant Mountains Museum in Jelenia Góra which has a good glass section.

      With that said, some of her attributions have been a little on the controversial side. :-)

      Thanks Ivonne - I didn't doubt this was Welz, the shape is unmistakable, but it is a décor that I don't see often.
