    welzebub
    (201 items)

    I bought this example out of the UK and it just arrived. My suspicion is that it may be Welz production, but at this point I am leaving it as anonymous production. I have not run into either the shape or the specific decor before, but it still kind of spoke to me.

    The vase stands at 8.5 inches tall, and is 4 inches in diameter at both the rim and the base. Construction consists of the colors of green (which has some mica in it), blue, and white, which are sandwiched in between two layers of clear. The base is unmarked, but shows age wear commensurate with interwar production for the 1920's or 30's.

    If one studies the decor closely, there are faint vertical lines in the decor which run from the foot to the rim, and are more pronounced in some places than in others. Regardless of who produced it, it is a well made and pleasing example of interwar Czech production.

      Welz was not my first thought... but also I never discount what having it in hand tells a person!!!? Love the decor and colors!!!

      Most interesting.... I'll try to post mine. Same colours, including the aventurine. Not the same décor but mine also have lines.
      I like your décor better!

      There have been a few of these pieces (or similar) for sale in the UK (ebay) recently... none as nice as this blue/green example though....

      The size, glass thickness and shape are all within Welz range, thank you for sharing it so we can be on the look out

      Wow-- I really like this beauty!

      Also, I appreciate your conservative approach to attribution. I'll be on the lookout for the decor and shape.
