    The Welz tango resembles Loetz and Kralik tango but if you look closely they have no pontil mark and the rim is fire polished. I have no idea how they were made with such consistency. They are sometimes signed with a faint acid mark "Made in Czechoslovakia". There is a very similar type (I am looking into them) that has a variegated rim...they may or may not be related. the fourth picture shows a nice color range between the lemon yellow and the blood red. The green is a very rare color and helps to identify other shapes.

    any new color pics are most welcome.

      Thanx, I'll do another one, I really like the simplicity of these tango pieces in very predictable shapes and no grinding or pontils

      Is #3 a different shape from #1 or just a really weird photo?
