    This example of this form is the first one I can recall that I have seen in this decor. The decor was not found on this shape in my shape library. The decor has been seen previously on this shape, but to include a kind of mustard Orange with the Oxblood and Green Mica. This brings the total of decors I have found on this Welz form to 36. This makes it the most prolific in terms of decors identified on a single shape.

    Interestingly, as seen in the last image, the remnants of a mold seam can be seen on the lower portion of the stem. This is a small area where glass leaked into the mold seam. This is the first time I have seen this on one of these pieces.

    This also helps, with other mold lines seen and felt on the form, to confirm that this shape was produced using a 3 piece mold.

    Standing at 7.25 inches in height, this is the standard range of size for these.

    This example was a generous gift from a Scottish Collector that has helped me previously with examples of Welz production to aid in my research. I offered to pay the postage to send it to me, but she declined, and as a result of doing so, I made a donation for a larger amount of money to support our local no kill shelter.

    Many Thanks go to Sue, for her generosity and her help...... This is not the first time she has gifted me an unusual Welz example. Without the help of many collectors around the world, my research would not have advanced as it has in some areas of study. I am always grateful for the help, and appreciative of the fact that people care about my work enough to gift glass to me to help further advance our knowledge of Welz production.

      That is amazing since neither of us have any of this art glass according to some CW posters!
