I would have leaned towards Heckert too. Thanks for the education.
I am assuming the swirls only go in one direction, like other Welz decors, but the transparency of the glass gives it a cross-hatched effect in your photo that I love.
Very striking. I like it much more than the amber glass version.
I hadn't noticed those 4 nodules until I looked again. Thanks for pointing them out Sklo.
https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/256314-kralik-candy-or-lidded-bowl Definitely purple!
I love the vase. Yes, I see these particular canes with either a blue spatter background or a purplish/aubergine background, like yours. (Call it 'brownish' and I won't like it any more.) Both are ...
Seen quite a few Welz candle holders, but NEVER this shape. Well done. Thanks for posting.
An interesting development in Loetz cameo production. Thanks.
Jaw-dropping size!...and I'll have all the other pieces with it too please.
I'm very interested that these decors are a 'marriage' (close enough for me too). Did you acquire them separately, or together? I wonder if they were actually retailed together originally....
Very nice. What is the size please?
Fantastic information and historical insights. Thank you. Keep it coming. (Image 3 looks like trumpeters playing a fanfare - so appropriate accompanying this revelation of a photograph of Welz work...
Hmmm. I'm happy to defer to the higher authority on Welz. I have nothing like your experience. However, my instinct told me it was an added dimension - perhaps the same technique used to produce th...
This is awesome. Does the decor display a kind of 'crackle' (giraffe) effect through the 'decoupage' - which is not usually seen?
No, Your photos are lovely. I hope you didn't misunderstand. Perhaps I should have said I have never before seen this shape photographed upside down, so the extent of the curves in the bottom half h...
Interesting how the camera angle on these really distorts the shape. I'm not doubting they are all Welz (have followed the supportable research on these) - just wish I could line them all up in front...
Yep. My vote is Loetz.
Very convincing research and write-up. Thanks.
Thanks for response Jericho. So, I think I've got it - Sklo's fabulous example not Welz, but you believe examples in this posting are. I'll give them greater scrutiny now to ascertain differences i...
Jericho, I commented on your other post on similar decors. I find these dazzling. However, if you think sklo's example is not (yet) Welz, why are the others listed under the title of Welz? Have I m...
Hey Jericho, When you commented on sklo's post of similar decor, you agreed with welzebub that there is not enough (yet) to attribute these to Welz. Given that position, do you think the title of thi...
Isn't that first shape in Image 1 in the Welz production literature? (I'd say that's fairly convincing, if I am correct.) Thanks for posting the 1892 patent - fascinating!
A very stimulating read. Thank you. I have the same question as Artfoot. Is it the often-seen mark on Welz pieces?
Very unusual example. Thanks for posting.
The gold iridescence sets off the amber twigs beautifully.
Got it. Body shape similar, very different foot. I suspect the number will rapidly go well beyond that, particularly if you include all the multitudes of blaaaaahskets.
Picture 1, top left is an awesome Welz decor I have never seen before.
Photo 4, top row, 4 across - a little more slender in shape?? Or just the perspective......? And photo 3 not updated with your recent acquisition? Love these images!!
I would be interested to see a separate posting on your large compote in image 4, with a photo of the 'Made in Czechoslovakia' provenance mark. It's difficult to determine the shape of this compote f...
Marvellous. And huge.
I just clicked and clocked up '100'. Congratulations!
It's a stunner.
Very illuminating. If you then applied your 'silhouette' technique (of blackening whole vase form), images 2 and 4 in vase 1 - from production literature - would appear hugely different! And image 4...
Looks to be the same yellow/orange and brown combination in my Loetz cameo posted here. But such a totally different aesthetic!! And yours has red as well. Never seen anything like these. This pair...
Thanks for response. You definitely need the candy dish!
These are so regal. I recall the original posting and just reread it. So, is this now considered a confirmed Kralik decor? And was it resolved whether the label on taller piece is indicative of ear...
This is special. Lucky you.
Wezebub, no excuses necessary. My husband is emotive and verbose, but extremely smart, well informed and empathetic. I have developed the necessary filters..... No offence intended... I'm sure you ...
JenniferH - In defending free speech, I wonder how it is that my polite questioning on Truthordare's posts is invariably deleted. I have never experienced the same on Welzebub's posts. I am a regula...
This one is really yummy. I'm more used to seeing those canes with blue, not purple.
I didn't know that either! Thanks Welzebub.
(For others like me, who may have arrived late and found this recent discourse confusing, you need to see a post in 'Postcards', not 'Art Glass'.)
Thank you so much. I hadn't read that article of yours. Amazing.
Just adding my voice reinforcing all above comments re astonishing breadth, originality and complexity of Welz production over the years. Regarding the Futuristic pieces - do you have any additional ...
This one is really cool!
I am particularly interested in the millefiori pieces in the Ruckl catalogue page (image 4). Has anyone ever located a match for these ("Murano", gotta love it) items? I often see matches for Butler...
Are you able to provide the date and location of photo in image 2 please?
Can't imagine these could be anything other than interwar production (for all the reasons in Welzebub's comment), but always good to keep the questions coming! Thanks for posting.
