    Today's rather nice op shop find was this Czech Tango glass vase in an intense shade of orange.
    It measures 20 cm tall, 10.7 cm across the top rim, & 7.5 cm across the base.
    It displays a classic form for this type of vase, the flared out "trumpet" with a loosely crimped top rim edged with a black crest.
    The truncated conical footed base is a bit different, though. The other examples I have of this shape have a rounded foot that is like a squashed doughnut rather than this straight - sided example.
    No markings (typical of Tango glass found in Australia) but plenty of age related "shelf wear" on the base.
    1920s - 1930s era, made in Czechoslovakia.

      Hey there!!! I love pretty much all Tango glass! The colors always appeal to me and this one is perfect for the season! Nice find;)

      Thanks so much, shareurpassion! Yes, Tango glass is super & I'm always thrilled to find some, it's much harder to come by these days so I always jump on it when it turns up...& for sure it's right on trend for Halloween as well!

      I've seen this one in the U.K. I think it's most likely Welz. The shape has, most commonly, a 'disc' foot, also a 'bulb' foot and less often this truncated 'cone' foot. Nice find.

      Many thanks Peggy, & so nice to hear from you!
      Was hoping this one might be a Welz. All my other vases of this basic shape have the bulb foot, which made this one a must - have for being a bit different. The same shop also had a Tango comport/fruit bowl in a slightly lighter orange with black trim...but I left it for another lucky buyer to score as it was -
      1. Too expensive,
      2. Takes up more shelf space than I can spare... :-)

      No question... Welz tango, I have a few that shape. The color palate is different than most Welz tango!!!
    8. cornhusker cornhusker, 1 year ago
      That should be palette!!!

      Many thanks for the vote of confidence in Welz, cornhusker!
      I'm always impressed by the variety of their production. I have a number of orange vases in the Tango style, but this orange is slightly different from all of them.
