    This was a recent buy on eBayAU. Very pleased to welcome it to my collection, as rainbow glass is a favourite of mine.
    It is made from three layers of cased glass - clear over rainbow spatter with silver mica spangles, over an opaline white interior. The vase measures around 13 cm tall, 4 cm across the base, & 2.6 cm across the diagonally cut top rim.
    There is an applied clear handle with a bumpy texture.
    Most likely Bohemian origin, late 19th century.

      Such pretty colours...

      That's eye catching, Iron Lace. The shape of the handle reminds me of the one on that blue opalescent jug. The Bohemians loved those randomly scattered mica spangles. Colours are bright and cheerful. Lucky you.

      Many thanks, Penny!

      Thanks also, Russell117. Yes, one often spots similar aspects across different items. It can be helpful in identifying a maker. I really enjoy pieces with mica spangles & have picked up many over the years. The rainbow ones are the fanciest by far!

      My hunch is that this will one day be found to be a Welz decor. Those mica inclusions, familiar colour palette and that neck sheared off on an angle. I wouldn't dare say it's Welz without proof, but it's a gut feeling....
    6. IronLace IronLace, 2 years ago
      I'm rather inclined to agree, Wow22. There are certainly some familiar aspects in the design of this piece. Finding this decor in a particularly distinctive Welz shape would be just super. I do have a large jug/vase in a different spatter plus mica inclusions which I think is possibly Welz decor. Same sort of bumpy, not thorny, handle as well.

      Rainbow is one of my favorites also.
      Most of my pieces do not have mica though. When first collecting, I kept thinking Welz also.. but I lean to Harrach more now. It is just my opinion and I am still looking for the connection that hopefully helps determine that to be true. Nice piece! ????

      Much appreciated, SunshineGlass! I do have some other rainbow spatter pieces which I think might be Harrach. It was clearly a popular decor at the time (no wonder, who could resist it? So cheerful) & was likely made by numerous firms.
