    In light of a couple of recent posts in this forum, I guess that the practice in the Bohemian Glass Group in Facebook, of banning the discussion of Welz, or face expulsion from the group, is now going to be practiced by some in this forum….. (The female admin of that group does not like me LOL) So now, we will mention them…. But not by name…… “Who? Well the usual contenders, Kralik, Ruckl, and probably that other one that made many glass baskets during this period.” And another mention “Another glass family's production of decorative glass in the 19th century in Bohemia has very little to work with to identify the overall stock glass items they were making at any point in time.”

    And the comedy relief in this forum continues…. So I guess we will just simply refer to them as the “W” company. ROTFLMFAO

    So this fabulous and monstrous example of production by the "W" company in the décor I refer to as “Burnt Orange Mica”, was generously offered to me by a friend that bought it and showed it to me. She then offered me the opportunity to purchase it, and I snapped it up right away. Thanks Michelle!! You are the Best!!!

    This monolith of a vase stands at 16.25 inches in height, easily becoming the tallest piece of Welz in my collection, and to the best of my recollection, the tallest example I am aware of. It is 4 inches in diameter at the bulbous base, and 2.25 inches in diameter at the ground and polished rim. Although large examples of Welz production are not unheard of, they are not all that common in any shape.

    This example brings the total of shapes identified in this décor to 12, and I consider myself to be lucky to own 4 of those 12. It is one of my favorite Welz decors…..

    This example has 3 sides with enamel work on them. The back side is blank.

    Image 1 is the enamel work front.
    Image 2 is the blank back side.
    Image 3 shows both the underside and the rim, which has worn gold enamel work on it, and the underside revealing 4 amber feet.
    Image 4 shows the 4 shapes I own in this décor. To put the size in perspective, the other tube vase on the left is 8 inches in height.
