    Not much to say in this post, other than to chuckle about a recent comment in the forum about something being Kralik and in their cranberry shade of glass…… Cranberry colored glass…. Likely one of the more commonly used colors over a period of at least a few decades.

    My experience teaches me that if a piece is made in a solid color, it can really only be attributed through the use of factory documentation if it exists, or though shape comparisons and the use of other known decors on those shapes……

    All of these shapes and/or decors can be linked to Welz production through a variety of examples. In some cases, as many as 10 or 15.

    The comment about Kralik Cranberry glass was used in reference to support a claim that a particular piece (1st image, top left example) of Spiraloptisch was Kralik’s in their semi translucent cranberry glass. In light of that, I though I would see what examples of Kralik’s Cranberry glass I had a record of finding…. Oh…. Sorry...... I meant Welz Cranberry glass…. :-)

      Renedijkstra, This post was not aimed at you in any way.

      It was for the benefit of the forum member, that for many years has felt that both direct and back handed insults, both here and on her own website, are an acceptable practice in this forum. I never let them go without a response. She claimed that she was going to join the ranks of "it is not worth the time and effort' crowd, yet at the same time could not resist taking a swipe at a comment I made in my recent conversation with you. I guess her commitment to joining that crowd was short lived. ROTFLMFAO

      My apologies if you thought it had anything to do with you.

      It absolutely does not. You and I are good.

      no sweat at all kid i love your expertise, it doesnt matter if a piece sucks ,the only thing that matters is if you like it if you bought it, if have seen poche aipprasers talking bs , a famous dutch auction house want to have me sued, because i wrote an artikel about the way they appraise and auctioned , no sweat , i eat them for breakfast , never heard of them again, like i said before we are only criminals , the difference is we wear an Armini suit

      Sammy, That lamp is amazing.... I have seen a handful of other smal oil lamps by Welz, but nothing that cool. When I have a chance I will do a post with some of my thoughts about it. It may possibly answer a question I have had for a while..... Thank you so much for providing the link.... That lamp is one of the coolest things I have seen in a while, and something I have never seen before!!

      With Ivonne's blessing, I have added her recently posted Cranberry Welz basket to the first image group.

      Thanks to all that stopped by my post.
    10. welzebub welzebub, Yesterday
      The upper left image in this post, in the Spiraloptisch décor has been irrefutably linked to Welz production since this was posted. That link, and the supporting evidence, can be seen in this linked post:
