    The first vase, a trophy vase shape, is currently attributed to Welz by the Glass Museum of Novy Bor. That attribution is repeated in the 1995 edition of Collectible Bohemian Glass I by R & D Truitt.
    The vase in photo 1 & 2 measures 7.5 inches tall with applied crystal decorations. It has a light green opaque lining spattered with an oxblood red and white decor. This same oxblood red and white spatter decor can be found on other shapes with contrasting colored linings, as shown in photo 3 above.
    The red vase above, photo 3, measures 12 inches tall and has applied crystal decorations. It has a light red opaque lining spattered with the same oxblood red and white decor as the vase my kitty is holding. It is documented as Antonin Rückl & Sons using documentation from the manufacturer, a paper label, as shown here:

    http://www.burchardgalleries.com/auctions/2012/feb1912/01images/l506.htm

    This Ruckl label design was registered in 1903 per the Glasmarken Lexicon.

    Photo 4 above shows glassware attributed to F. Welz at the 2011/2012 Tango Exhibit. Proven empirical research methods (matching decors) indicate that the museum attribution to Welz is inaccurate. The "Welz" trophy vase shape and the vase shape labeled Ruckl share a common decor as shown here:

    None of the examples shown are marked or labeled Welz.

      Hello poticheman. Thank you for the nice comment. I'll let her know :)

      Great example of Welz production. It would seem that your claims based on the label on the “Miracle Vase” are no longer supportable, in light of the label being spuriously placed.

      That's a guess (lie) that protects your previous Welz attributions... Attributions where labels, factory markings, museum displays, and reputable books are wrong if they don't align with your theories.
