Hard decision then. Did the friend get it?
Astonishing array. Thanks for posting. My favourites are the cameo on ivory - pic 3.
I agree these items are really hard to pin down. But it's charming. The precise source of my own example of this style has eluded me for many years. https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/198129-...
aHa! Told ya. :)
Very, very special. Love it!
I respect your reluctance for a firm attribution, but for those of us not required to be so cautious, these are 100%Welz to me!
I think it just says 'Glass Studio'.
Yes, a poster for pic 1...but maybe crop out the toilet far left. Lol.
https://bendzunas-glass.deviantart.com/art/oillamps-370438725 See images here. These are cool.
Exquisite work. No.2 is my favorite.
Thanks. It will be interesting to see if someone comes up with the same shape in a more easily recognizable Welz decor.
Haha. So nothing deep and meaningful at all! Thanks.
Astonishing. Why is the rim in the pattern asymmetrical? Did it allow for different rim treatments of the same shape? (Apologies if this is an ignorant question. I don't own any books with pattern ...
Certainly looks to me like a candidate for the ever-growing Welz catalog. Your date estimate surprised me though. Didn't realize it was so early. All those pseudo-Victorian pieces are confusing.
Yes, Legras is what I had it pegged as. Glad I am not losing my mind... Thanks for the clarification kralik.
Hi there. I am a bit confused about photo 4 in this post. In a post on Ruckl, two back row pieces are clearly identifiable to me (so, certainly to you) as Welz, and the centre front example is one w...
Left-handers rather under-represented, wouldn't you say?
I've seen the underplate on a number of occasions and could never really fathom it. Never knew there was a bowl to sit in it, lol. Makes sense now. Thank you, it's gorgeous.
Yes, I recently saw a piece (powder decor again) which had clearly been blown into a cage, but there was no cage present. Got me thinking - is it possible to remove the metal cage from such a piece w...
Thanks for this series of illuminating posts. I have never handled one of these pieces but I find them very appealing. Although you said it was the most common, to my mind the powder decor works bes...
This is extraordinary! Not only huge (I gasped), but I have never seen that decor with peleton. Magnificent. Can't wait to see others you acquired...
Intriguing. What size are they please?
Small and intergalactic. Love it!
Extremely interesting discovery. Congratulations.
Another Welz vote here.
AWESOME! Please share some individual pieces too. You have a wonderful array.
I returned to have another look at this luscious vase and have just seen the update with catalogue photo added. Given that the accompanying text describes it as 'new production', does that mean it is...
A real beauty.
Thanks kairomalte. I have read the article many times now and it is STILL interesting. The better Loetz cameo ouput really attracts me. I appreciate your input.
Hey Sklo, your latest satin spatter rose bowl purchase has really sent you into a spin - with a flurry of posts and hypotheses. It's wonderful that you have this passion and curiosity (and time!). A...
I have also observed this shape with a wide, flared rim. Search 'antique czech bohemian iridescent glass vase bowl'. Same? or Similar?
I can't see the blue/green in the jagsrock basket example. Am I missing something? I have been following your very tentative and cautious Welz attribution with interest, but in my mind, it's not quit...
Fascinating insights from Jericho. It's more complex than I thought! So - possibly Bambus, possibly not (until this color is verified). Possibly marquetry through technique... Making my head spin.
My interpretation also is Bambus, not Marquetry. It's awesome. Lucky you.
I love these Kralik millefiori decors. I have an orange/red example with red/white/blue canes, which appears to be the same shape and size, but it's often hard to tell from the angle of photos. What...
Interesting. A wonderful piece. I can't stop looking at that luminous blue.
Definitely looks like horse chestnut to me, as opposed to edible chestnuts. These are prevalent in Europe and the 'conkers' (seeds) are loved by children for schoolyard games. I adore this color a...
Thanks. A commanding piece!
Elegant simplicity. How tall exactly?
Example two - to die for...
Excellent comparison. Very helpful - thanks!
Not art glass. Mark reads Byzanta Ware, Grimwades, Stoke on Trent, England Hope this helps.
Thank you for clarification. Gorgeous piece - sublime simplicity.
This beautiful Olympia version looks wider at the neck's base to me, and different at the foot? Would that variation be usual? (Still learning) Or is it a trick of the camera?
In your recently declared search for Welz clear or coloured translucent glass, I wonder if you have seen this shape (seemingly) in clear green glass with pink accents. Search "Antique Victorian green...
I love this post. They were so enterprising!! I remember seeing a similar comparison between CW members of a stepped vase some years ago (can't find it now). It awakened my curiosity but I've never...
Very educational. Thank you. I would never have picked this as Loetz! Is this example marked?
