I'm also hooked on glass fairy or candle lamps and brass/glass kerosene era parlor lamps. My current topic of study (with lots of help from others) is colored glassware manufactured by Ruckl, Vcelnicka and Victorian Era Oil Lamps. Thanks to everyone who posts on CW as information is always appreciated and informative. (Read more)

  1. You should also mention that the idea that Butler groupings were by one manufacturer wasn't referencing Czech glass at all. It originated from a collector of American glass.
  2. Lines and Canes was offered by Butler Brothers in October 1930. https://d3h6k4kfl8m9p0.cloudfront.net/stories/Hd7maqVls7ZhNeg-BwVKvg.jpg
  3. Not like you're gona take my word for it, therefore you should really go do your own Steinwald research. It looks like that empirical evidence you speak of may have let you down with your Kralik re...
  4. Knowing how to spell the word Steinwald is a good start to you doing your own research on the topic.
  5. Yes Welzebub, The Kralik empirical research was inaccurate, to put it nicely. I guess many Kralik attributions made sense at the time, but information has changed.
  6. They're probably Ernst Steinwald. Here's a Ernst Steinwald caltalog page showing this threaded decor. See #4281, in the top row, next to the Steinwald stripes and spots decor. https://d3h6k4kfl8m9...
  7. Probably not Kralik, but Steinwald.
  8. It's shown on page 98 of Sanford's Guide to Robinson Ramsbottom Pottery Co. (RRP), by Sharon and Larry Skillman. https://www.mercari.com/us/item/m18797827835/?gclsrc=aw.ds&&utm_source=google&utm_m...
  9. It's Mardi Gras EAPG glass by Duncan Miller.
  10. Your bowl was manufactured by Stölzle.
  11. Surely you know the date of manufacture, if you are confident these pieces are Welz. Where are they documented so others can go look?
  12. Michelle, I agree. It gets very old seeing unmarked and undocumented glassware becors being claimed as solely We lz production without a smidgeon of proof. What is the date of manufacture?
  13. Nice pieces, but not sure either is Welz. What era do you suppose they were manufactured? Did Welz own a patent on pinstripes?
  14. Probably Ruckl Splatter Glass, but others made similar. Great find. https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/193109-tan-satin-spatter-ruckl-art-glass-collec
  15. Wexford pattern by Anchor Hocking.
  16. You should look into Falkenstein. The F on the light switch has nothing to do with the lamp manufacturer. Thanks for posting.
  17. Your tray is by Houze Glass.
  18. Chalet Canada, I think... Love the style and twisted handle.
  19. The article in the 1998 publication apparently suggests Ernst Steinwald & Co. in Teplitz as the manufacturer. Just wondering what it said exactly? https://cmog.primo.exlibrisgroup.com/discovery/fu...
  20. It's possible that the glass ring near the bottom is an applied feature, not part of the mold. See the second vase in the 3rd row down: https://d3h6k4kfl8m9p0.cloudfront.net/stories/rk8vrnJIpNV3r...
  21. Do you still have access to the Autumn 1998 Czechoslovakian Collectors Guild International publication mentioned in your posting?
  22. Looks fantastic!
  23. Outstanding research!
  24. The lidded jar shape on the left of photo one was offered by Butler Brothers in their 1931 catalog. https://d3h6k4kfl8m9p0.cloudfront.net/stories/19rOyobTWk6flDmUMi5SUQ.jpg
  25. Collectible Bohemian Glass II, Robert & Deborah Truitt, page 123, indicates that the semicircle provenance mark was used by other manufacturers and that Kralik glassware is found with other providence...
  26. Great work, Larksel!
  27. Gkad to help! It's a very nice size too, and a great find!
  28. It's 1898 Legras spatter glass. Here's a link to the original catalog page: https://www.glas-musterbuch.de/Legras-1898.310+B6YmFja1BJRD0zMTAmcHJvZHVjdElEPTEyODIyJmRldGFpbD0_.0.html
  29. WOW! That's really neat.
  30. It's a 1950's Poland Spring Moses gin bottle, as manufactured by Anchor Hocking.
  31. Thank you Findings and Ms.CrystalShip for the nice comment.
  32. That's a guess (lie) that protects your previous Welz attributions... Attributions where labels, factory markings, museum displays, and reputable books are wrong if they don't align with your theories.
  33. Thank you Ms.CrystalShip for the CW Love!
  34. Very unique design and a nice piece either way!
  35. Hello Ms.CrystalShip, Thank you for the CW Love and nice comment. It was a fun lamp to dismantle and rewire. It came out very beautiful but was a little dingy when we got it and looked like it had nev...

  37. Hello artfoot, unfortunately not at this time. The book however is available on Amazon & elsewhere.
  38. The Ruckl black foil label in question is documented as being registered in 1903 according to the Glasmarken Lexicon..... the world's most complete, and best glass mark and label reference book.
  39. Hello poticheman. Thank you for the nice comment. I'll let her know :)
  40. Thank you truthordare, Hoot60, Ms.CrystalShip, Trey, MALKEY, and Newfld for the CW Love!
  41. It's not Welz production if it has a Ruckl label. It would appear that your robust and supportable Welz research has matched up a bunch of Ruckl shapes and decors. Great work!
  42. None of the smaller vases have been found with a label. That doesn't mean that the shape is Welz.
  43. No, the same shape labeled Ruckl was manufactured in other "known Welz" decors.
  44. Nope, that shape was also manufactured in the brick red lined spatter décor labeled Ruckl. https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/168764-antonin-rckl-and-sons--ruckl-bohemian-v?in=activity
  45. Here are additional examples of this brick red lined décor labeled Ruckl for those interested: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/281428-another-welz-dcor?in=activity
  46. Thanks everyone for the CW Love!
  47. Thanks everyone for the CW Love!
  48. oops, I hit the love again.
  49. I feel that members of CW deserve better.
  50. No problem. My comments were actually for Bambus1920 anyways.
