  1. Many thanks, Mrstyndall!
  2. Many thanks, antiquerose! Yes, I guess it's a bit strange to think that our seasons are opposite, isn't it? It's even something of an adventure for me, because where I used to live, in Sydney, there...
  3. Artfoot...maybe some of the local wildlife had a go at it...goodness knows they've already ate most of the apples & have also attempted to decimate my kale seedlings...
  4. blunderbuss...the fungi are strictly for decorative value :-) This type is a big novelty to me, as where I lived previously - on the coast, you never saw ones like them because the climate was wrong....
  5. Absolutely, Vintagefran! I shall have to take a photo of them together sometime...
  6. Absolutely, Mrstyndall...I am planning to fill it with eggs...at the moment it's on my dining table (what I do with new arrivals lately)
  7. Many thanks, sklo42...yes, would be nice to have confirmation this is Harrach...have seen a fair few other similar pieces attributed as such...it makes a certain amount of sense in the context of thei...
  8. Another ram checking in...mine was last Saturday...
  9. Thanks also, Vintagefran, & yes, it's nice to find a less common colour variation. In person they are quite mutable, sometimes more blue, sometimes greenish. I also enjoy the difference in the stopper...
  10. Thanks so much, Vintagefran! Perhaps the extra definition on the stripes is due to the vase not having any moulded ribbing? Many pieces in this decor also have the ribbed effect & sometimes the dais...
  11. So beautiful, despite the damage. I totally agree & empathize regarding the issue of multiple items bumping against each other in a parcel, it's happened to me a few times, & is so frustrating. It a...
  12. The restrained, classical simplicity suggests an earlier Victorian piece to me...pre - 1880s I think...
  13. Pity our Japanese glass enthusiast, racer, isn't around at the moment...
  14. Looking forward to it!
  15. Great shape - the square top is a nice example of the seemingly endless variations on a theme that Welz created.
  16. Very nice indeed! Love rainbow glass!
  17. There's something about this shape - the wide, flat top rim, & chunky base - that suggests a piece of modern studio glass...maybe 1980s onwards? Usually such glass is signed, but perhaps this one had ...
  18. Many thanks, Bambus1920! Planted some more today...watch this space!
  19. Thanks also, kyratango!
  20. Thanks also, vetraio50! It was on Saturday but have just got around to posting today...had first guests staying in my new house so was super busy...
  21. Many thanks, Treasure Tex!
  22. No, not Fenton with that sort of decoration...can't say an exact maker but my hunch is Bohemian, late 19th - very early 20th century.
  23. They look French to me...perhaps Portieux/Vallerysthal? I have a couple of hand vases in the same colour which were purchased from sellers in France & Belgium.
  24. So true, sklo42! Wouldn't we all be rushing out to get a packet!
  25. They grow from bulbs, Bambus1920... :-)
  26. It's lovely to think that my vase bought back in 1995 now resides in an important collection.
  27. Oh! Vase number three used to be mine! It's quite surreal to see it here. I originally purchased it in 1995 & sold it on eBay AU about three or four years ago.
  28. I used to have a vase the same shape (which I sold a few years ago to a buyer in Europe). My vase was light green opaque glass with a transfer print design of a little boy, surrounded by hand painted ...
  29. Wow, that is truly stunning!
  30. Thank you most kindly, Mrstyndall!
  31. Thanks also, sklo42, & yes, some days you can get lucky. I'd had to go into town for an appointment, & took the opportunity to visit a shop I'd had a few previous bargain finds in...
  32. Many thanks, jimtim!
  33. Great post that celebrates the diversity of Welz!
  34. I love a tuxedo cat too...Sissy is a cutie pie & reminds me of my first tuxedo cat, Remus, who came into my life in 1984. Haven't got any cats at the moment, but hope to one day...
  35. If you think it's beautiful, & you enjoy it's company, then in no way is it worthless.
  36. How did I miss this little gem?
  37. Happy to help, & yes, a nice find - great value & an attractive piece of glass!
  38. Love anything with rainbows!
  39. Here's something similar... https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/225805-victorian-cased-rainbow-spatter-glass-ju Not sure who made it but have seen something like it attributed to Bohemia...
  40. Italian glass from the early 2000s. I recall my mother buying some similar pieces new from a department store around 2003.
  41. Thanks also, Justanovice - & peculiarly mesmerising it most certainly is...
  42. Many thanks, Vintagefran, so glad you're enjoying it all!
  43. Many thanks, Vintagefran!
  44. Thanks so much, Roycroftbooksfromme1!
  45. A great post for so many reasons! Your collection is wonderfully varied - reflecting perfectly the eclectic & innovative Welz design ethos. They really did create something for everyone. The light f...
  46. Great find! The Coralene decor is beautiful.
  47. It's lovely!
  48. Thanks also, Bambus1920!
  49. Many thanks, artfoot!
  50. Isn't it wonderful! Great find, & here's my version, found about 16 years ago...didn't know what it was at the time! https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/215389-bohemian-iridescent-three-branch-v...
