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. I will look. I am not sure if I have one or not. If I do, I will post a link to it.
  2. Although C61 appears to be similar, the feet on that vase are different from the feet on this example. There may be other differences we can not see also, but the foot difference alone would disallow ...
  3. I missed this before.... Have just seen it. Yes, this is a Welz piece. The decor is not seen that often, but it is definitely one of theirs.
  4. The covered piece in the middle of pic three is interesting..... Other than that the grouping is fabulous...... My wife loves pink glass.... which means I do too!!!
  5. These are wonderful !! A labor of love for sure..... Beautiful work....
  6. It is a name given by a researcher quite a few years ago. There are really very few of the factory names known for their decors, especially the earlier ones.
  7. Great vase, and great story!!
  8. Charcoal says: "I think it is noteworthy that you both have the same ruffled bowl shape posed as Antonon Ruckl & Sons elsewhere." I think you are possibly confused Charcoal, as I would not post a K...
  9. I take that back about the shape.... there is one on that page I linked to. :-)
  10. Kralik Bascillus.... First one i have ever seen in this shape. Great find!! http://www.kralik-glass.com/kralikbacillusarray.html
  11. In the linked image: Top Bowl: Bowl shown as Rückl in the Tango Exhibition of 2011-12 Middle Bowl: Kevin Gummer's example of the Rückl bowl. Bottom Bowl: Ian's bowl, appearing similar, but also q...
  12. I had a buddy in high school that was a crazy man.... I mean truly certifiable..... After high school, in 1971 he bought a new 2002 in orange. We went for a ride one night on the highway through the m...
  13. So I am curious. Since the tall shape is shown in a Kralik millifiori decor in my link in comment 4, and also here in a different millifiori decor matching the bowl, wouldn't it seem a more reasonable...
  14. Known examples of the Canari Shimmy Pfau decor do not have pulls the color of the example linked to in comment 5, although that shape is shown in comment 4 in a recognized Kralik decor. :-)
  15. Cool find Malkey!! I do not think this is Welz, although I can not tell you who it is by. Both the decor and the shape are unfamiliar to me. Be well, and stay strong.....
  16. Very nice bracelet. Just to be clear, I think that some pretty easy research on the internet will reveal that the Liz Claiborne mark is generally one of a variety of marks using some form of "LC", a...
  17. Welcome back LISA. So nice to hear from you.
  18. I thought I would comment once more using an example shown here to review my position stated in my comment above. I am going to discuss the decor shown in the bottom right image. This is a decor I re...
  19. I really stay out of Ruckl discussion any more, but will voice a couple of opinions. My first opinion is in regards to marks and labels. Marks and labels can be indicators of origins of glass, but ...
  20. Just curious.......Heckert based on exactly what?
  21. I meant to add that they did 2 US tours. One in 1964, and one in 1966.
  22. In the whole scheme of things, there are not that many people that can say they saw the Beatles live. I saw them in Seattle in 1964. I was 12, and my mom who was a singer before she married, took my s...
  23. I am curious what the basis for a Rindskopf attribution is on this piece?
  24. Sorry Northumbrian, but this is a pretty classic Rindskopf shape, and not one identified in any Harrach decor that I have ever seen. Although this decor was suspected to be by Harrach for quite some t...
  25. All wonderful examples, but the middle piece in the first image is delicious!! And a random act of kindness could not happen to a nicer and more deserving person!!
  26. This is a Great example!! I was watching this piece, and although I can not say 100% that it is Welz, it is certainly in their aesthetic. The coloration and techniques used to make it are quite simil...
  27. I have found that in many cases, things come along in little bursts, usually in groupings of 3. Can not begin to tell you the number of times I have seen that through the years. You piece is very nic...
  28. Thanks Malkey. It is a "different" one!! Wow22.... The feel of the glass and combination of techniques is what leans me that direction as far as time frame goes. At best, it is a reasonably educate...
  29. Glad to help. As someone that has collected and researched glass for a very long time, especially Bohemian/Czech glass, it is not uncommon for the actual maker to be next to impossible to identify. I ...
  30. The problem with using auction postings as a resource for attribution is, especially with difficult glass, the attributions can easily be incorrect. Aarhus was in business for a very short period...
  31. I have changed out the last image to reflect additional Welz decors found on this shape since originally posting this over one year ago.
  32. Thanks to everyone for stopping by, and for the great comments. This piece is certainly one of my new favorites.
  33. It is great to see you here again. Many of us have wondered where you have been. I am sorry to hear that you have been, and are still ill. Best wishes for a full and speedy recovery....
  34. Great piece!! I have one of these stands, and this is the only other one I have ever seen. I also have never been able to identify the maker..... There is a number on the underside of the ashtray ri...
  35. This shape in this decor and others, are frequently seen in the US with the arched Kralik mark. I am of the opinion that the inclusion of this shape as Tomschick in the Tango exhibit may have been an...
  36. Nice one!! The decor is new to me also!!!
  37. The second piece from the left in image 4 with a Yellow top and spatter bottom is an example of Welz production. I have seen it in 7 decors, 2 of which are undeniably Welz production. The "French...
  38. The green example is definitely Welz production. http://www.kralik-glass.com/images/WelzStriatedGroup1.jpg
  39. It is a really cool piece....
  40. I would agree that they are Kralik, and variations on the same mold.
  41. The rolled lip like that, combined with the rigaree and colors would lean me towards the piece being Italian glass.... Murano or Venice.... Nice example. It has characteristics which are reminiscent...
  42. Nice find..... The top lip looks to be folded back down on itself. Is that correct?
  43. Love the group shot!!
  44. Although there are some good auction houses for sure, the vast majority are more concerned with revenue than accuracy. Most simply lack the manpower and expertise to accurately identify everything. ...
  45. Great decor.... Is the top cut and polished, or fire polished?
  46. Can you post a pic of the other piece around it. This appears to be only part of a system of some sort. This is a switching device, but not sure what it controls. Cool piece for sure!!
  47. Great piece.... A new shape!!
  48. Hi Kai, I like both decors quite a bit, but I simply find this piece to be a grade above the others.... As we know... not all examples of the same decor are created equal... I think that this is a g...
  49. Gorgeous. I have never seen a multi colored whirlpool.
  50. Gorgeous example Kai.
