As of 5/22/16 I will no longer be posting any of my personal research related articles in this forum that are not Welz specific. Regrettably, I have also removed froAs of 5/22/16 I will no longer be posting any of my personal research related articles in this forum that are not Welz specific. Regrettably, I have also removed from this forum, the portion of my posted research articles whose content did not relate specifically to Welz. I have left most of the Welz specific materials as I feel any attempt at re-posting any of my Welz research without the obligatory credit being given would immediately be seen for what it is. I have no objection, and never have had, to the sharing of any of my posted research materials as long as proper source credit is given. Although I feel that the sharing of information is a necessary part of collecting, I also feel that the re-posting of such information by others in a manner seemingly representing it as one's own personal work product with no form of acknowledgement as to source, is completely unacceptable behavior. It is not an activity that I have ever participated in, acknowledging at all times the sources and/or inspirations for my work if not based purely on my own original concepts. Not doing so is a practice I would never condone, or ever tolerate. Unfortunately, such activities have occurred both here in CW, and outside of this forum on a glass website. As a direct result of this activity, my public sharing of such information will no longer be forthcoming. Surprisingly, in over a decade of activity in many large international forums and collector venues on the internet, resulting in interactions with thousands of collectors, dealers, and researchers, this is the only venue where such ethically questionable behavior has ever occurred. Although I am a big supporter of sharing information, I am a bigger believer in what I would expect to be respectful behavior by those it is being shared with. Sadly, It would appear that not all members here share that same belief. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I will continue to post articles sharing some basic observations regarding glass that are applicable to Czech / Bohemian glass, and others, regardless of the makers. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Primarily a researcher, I am also the owner and webmaster of www.Kralik-glass.com, and a long term collector with well over 20 years experience in the world of glass. Although I have collected a wide variety of regions and periods of glass, my primary research area has now focused for the last 8+ years on the development of information regarding the scope of the glass production, and the history of the family, as it relates to Franz Welz Klostergrab.

  1. Gorgeous. I have never seen a multi colored whirlpool.
  2. Thanks to everyone that stopped by, and also commented. Always appreciated.
  3. Gorgeous example Kai.
  4. I have a yellow variegated example with the same applied rigaree as these. Not that common to find it. Nice find!! and a pair to boot!!
  5. These are from the late 60's into the 1970's and are by a Murano company called "V. Nason & Cie". The founder, Vincenzo Nason, had previously worked for Veninni. The line is found using reds, Blues,...
  6. Gorgeous example of Loetz production.
  7. I love these. I have had a green one for a number of years.
  8. The decor of this Kralik piece is referred to as Honeycomb Panel. Nice example.
  9. This decor is gorgeous.....
  10. I have to say that this decor is one of the more frustrating for me in my research. I know for a fact that Welz made some, if not all of the Spiraloptisch that is not Loetz. The problem is in esta...
  11. I sent Peggy some images of all of the shapes I am aware of in this non-Loetz version of the Spiraloptisch decor. I have not put the pages back up on my website, as many of them are shapes I can not s...
  12. That is me Peggy.... I will always remain cautious about making a correct attribution, as opposed to rushing to make an incorrect one.... :-) Just my nature I guess.
  13. Before I would call them Kralik, I would want to see the shape in a decor which can solidly be linked to Kralik. A spatter like this with pulls is simply too generic to use as a decor to ID a piece wi...
  14. The vase is Welz production. Since you posted this, the decor has been seen on a couple of marker shapes.
  15. A lovely little rarity there Frank!! Nice one!!
  16. Nice to have such a large striking pair!!
  17. Could be Kralik, or also possibly Welz....... Some of my thoughts on the decor can be found here: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/187644-a-bohemian--czech-dcor-draped-in-my
  18. Love the first one. A new decor for that shape.....
  19. These are by Harrach, and the decor is commonly referred to as "Seaweed". Nice looking decor....
  20. I am really glad to see the accurate attribution has finally been found. Great work!!
  21. My pleasure.
  22. Your vase is an example of a Loetz form referred to as "Tree Trunk". It was produced ca. 1902. This example is produced in a Candia Papillon finish. Nice example.
  23. Yes, As Harry said... Kralik production. I love this shape.....
  24. I agree with Alan, in that this form is also seen in a Rindskopf pulled feather decor. Pretty example!!
  25. Black glass actually does exist. One form of actual black glass can be produced using large amounts of Nickel as a colorant. Hyalith glass is also true black glass. It was patented in 1817 by Bohemian...
  26. Love these... The last 2 are really great.....
  27. Gorgeous piece!! I do not recall having seen this decor by Kralik before. Great example, possibly in a new decor...... And a great size!!
  28. Nice Assortment!!
  29. It would seem that the "Czech Repro" website page I linked to in comment 9 has been taken down..... at least for now.
  30. Just so you know, I have identified 18 different decors that were produced on this shape.
  31. Just curious.... You seem to have a pretty strong opinion on the subject..... Who do you believe made them?
  32. Great examples...
  33. The manufacture and tooling of this piece, and the others shown by Sklo42 in pic 3 are certainly in the manner and style of Kralik production. There is nothing about them that would exclude them from ...
  34. Nice size.... I like it..... and a great buy to boot!!
  35. I have not seen one before, but it sure "feels" like Welz to me. How tall is it?
  36. They have dried up because there are quite a few people that collect it now. :-)
  37. Great Stuff!! I see a lot of very nice Welz in there!!! There are 7 or 8 in there that I would love to see individual images of......
  38. Thanks everyone..... This piece was a very cool find..... and it simply helps to expand on my understanding of Welz production, and it's extremely wide aesthetic diversity. After about 10 years of i...
  39. A heartfelt "Thanks" to those that have continued to stop by my post.
  40. A heartfelt "Thanks" to to all those that stopped by and also those that commented.
  41. That really sucks!! Ad it looks like it was a really nice example..... I feel your pain buddy.....
  42. Here is a post that may shed some additional light on decors made by Welz... which may very well include your pair. https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/146372-possibly-some-welz-stuff---with-...
  43. I did not see this before today, but yes.... This is a very nice example of PK production.
  44. These are copies of a lamp design by Max Leverrier. It is very cool to have a pair.
  45. The inverted version is most commonly seen in a translucent cranberry.
  46. I agree Kyle... Although Team Ruckl seems to have thinned down to the Lone Ruckl Ranger... :-)
  47. Your vase is actually a vintage shelf support used to support glass shelving, most commonly in old store displays.
  48. Thanks for the loves from those that have continued to stop by my post.
  49. You are certainly welcome..... Based on differences in pieces I own, I would not consider those dimension differences to be significant.
  50. Great piece. Love the shape!! I would strongly suspect this to be by Welz also, but in light of the fact that I do not use the mark as definitive proof of attribution, I would want to see another W...
