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…. :-)
