    In this bowl the spatter is cased between an inner and an outer layer of amber glass. It was then given a satin finish. You cans see the predominantly white spatter at the rim. Of course with an amber casing the white becomes beige and the colours muted. The outer casing is thicker than the inner casing.

    Image two shows the bases of my only three examples, as the base of any spatter gives the best representation of it. In this case there is no clear indication whether or not they share a maker.

    Image three shows the bowl with the pieces I bought six and seven years ago. I was incredibly pleased to trip over this bowl as I love the décor in spite of it remaining unidentified for so long.

    Image four shows the candlestick with the 'same' shape made by Welz. The obvious differences between the two rule out Welz as a possible maker imo. Why would Welz want two versions of an oddball candlestick shape? If anyone has thoughts on ID I'd be happy to listen.

    Diameter 22cm./8.5 inches

      This link will take you to more examples of this type of glass. Thank you, EZa!

      There's a really nice tall jar/container with lid for sale on Ebay right now, in this decor. (I'm not selling it) Always my favorite styles and decor. I have a lot of this stuff-too much. Ha ha ha! People don't like it when you call it Ruckl or Welz. Some say it's by maker Pfohl at Josephinehutte. I'm a lot more easygoing; I don't reprimand anyone. I'm always willing to learn something new. I should post a new group of this decor sometime soon.

      This is most likely a product of the Franz Tomschick glassworks (based on shape matches).
    4. EZa EZa, 4 months ago
      Yes! Definitely Franz Tomschick maker for my favorite pieces like the ones on this link with the amber foot and lid pull. H0wever, I think there were copycats maybe, because within this decor there are some "groups" that stand out. I'll try to post some groupings of this decor soonish. I do find myself obsessed with this decor.

      Thank you, Larksel, for your help, leaving only the candlestick unknown.
