Have looked at Welz images online and come up with a vase very similar to this one but with different decor. I originally thought this one was cut down but now having found a similar one think that it is right! Any comments?

    Thank you scottvez!! : ) It was you who started me on this journey, I had watched CW for some months, not having the courage to post anything when I made a comment on your trophy vase, was shot down and corrected by Obscurities!! But learned from there on in that there was much more than I had realised about glass and its makers! So thank you both for the learning curve!!

    I love the vase but my comments from your blue and white ball vase posting still apply. This is also 1895+/- Ruckl glass in my opinion.

    My comments are often kept short because of being "corrected" and not because I'm trying to be rude. Hopefully you understand and see that I'm an easy target already with my line of study.

    Did not think you rude charcoal, so am I right in my thinking now that there is only one glass maker who did the ball footed vases no matter what decor? It was the shortness and lack of frill that I found on the similar one under Welz which made me think that perhaps there were more makers of this ball footed type vase.

    Thank you, just making sure. :) I know that feeling and would never knowingly go there. As for Ruckl being the only maker of ball vases... It's hard to make that broad of a statement. However, that is how it's looking for the era in question which is pre 1900's. The ribbing and decors of these ball vases match those found on the Ruckl fairy lamps.

    I am glad that I was able to help in any way. You have some beautiful glass that has been a joy to view.

    Study, research and attribution is important. But most of us loved it just as much as beginners, when we were uncertain with attributions. We should all remember what got us started -- THE BEAUTY AND APPRECIATION OF THE GLASS!

    Thank you so much Scott! - Yes, we must not lose the feel of those first pangs and allow 'but it is worth !!!' to take over!
