This is the other Welz basket that recently arrived, another find on eBay AU.
It is made from three layers of cased glass, clear over swirling amber & pink stripes, with a white interior. It measures around 22 cm tall, 12.5 cm across the top rim, & 8 cm across the base.
The striped decor is given an added twist by way of a melon - ribbed lower half which swirls in the opposite direction. The top rim is also of extravagant design, a four cornered fine crimp intersected by four sharply pulled - out sections. The base has a partly polished pontil mark, & to cap it all off, there is a clear applied thorny handle with a single loop.
