    At first sight I thought these were some kind of fan vase. In fact they are a reworking of a a centuries old design called tulip vases. Other companies of the time likely produced pieces with similar five stem tops.

      These are SO fabulous! Only trouble is, now I want one too! :-)

      OMG. What a score. I have NEVER EVER seen this Welz shape. Only familiar with the Loetz tulip version...

      IronLace, I doubt they are unique so I guess it's only a matter of time. Good Luck!

      Wow22, I'd remembered the green one. Apparently the original design was Delft and goes back to the 16th/17th centuries. When tulips first came on the market single bulbs changed hands for hundreds of pounds! Crazy but well documented.

      I didn't realise tulips were once so prized. So interesting.

      scott, new one to all I guess.

      Wow22, Of course it didn't last as folks just grew more bulbs and the price dropped. At first though no one had enough blooms for a standard vase!

      I have one very similar to the one on the far left in photo 4 but the colours are much darker. Interesting to see all the different shapes! :)

      BHIOS, the pieces to the extreme right and left are mini oil lamps and used a floating wick. Welz shapes are pretty well endless!
