What better way to kick off the year than with a nice example of Welz?
This vase from the Tango era is made from cased glass - clear over pink stripes & spatter, with an opaline white interior.
It measures 19 cm tall, 12 cm across the loosely crimped top rim, & 8.1 cm across the base, which does not have a pontil mark.
There is an applied black crest on the top rim. The form is a simple, flared trumpet, classic & elegant. This is by no means a rare decor, but my first in this shape. Always impressed by how many variations there are on this theme.
I know there are quite a few folks out there that especially enjoy pink glass, so hope this one brightens your day.
Pink & black is one of my favourite colour schemes in glass, & it's always a pleasure to welcome another piece to my collection.
