  1. Very surprised by mount, integrated perfectly even though looking at them side by sided I would never guess they do... could the mount have been made in the 50’s like by another designer? Beautiful
  2. Lots a fire! Great vase
  3. I want mine! Whaaaah!!
  4. Very nice piece and well written article, this is a keeper!
  5. Fantastic !! I love the lines pieces more than lines with confetti (more fun colors)
  6. I know it’s relatives for sure (grouping) so don’t let not knowing stop your collecting- you can get 20 shapes in this tango in 7 colors and one day there will be a page from a manufacturers catalogue...
  8. I like these pieces but I believe it is not Loetz - the feet are done with the same technique but probably enameled black. The green is outer vases and flashed with an acid to achieve the iridescence....
  9. I have seen the black tango with red applications but not with the multicolor beads
  10. That’s rare. Never seen this decor on this shape - def The HEX series was a way of showing the decors of Welz
  11. Love this type, if you need note pictures of this kind please email me - email in my bio
  12. The pontil is rough- just like those baskets. Lately there have been some knuckle/umbrella pieces that are harder to place as kralik or Welz, I think we have to leave open the possibility that others ...
  13. Oh man!!!! this is awsome, great help Warren
  14. I can confirm the inside custard finish is the same luster finish of the outside, it was also sprayed on hot then the piece was furnace finished. I leaned this when a dealer looked at an iris and thou...
  15. Love it love it love it,
  16. Everything Craig said, it has a few things that make it more desirable- the thickness of the glass and the white dot decor reminiscent of Dagobert Peche... if it only had a designer name on it. Also l...
  17. Nah, you should sell it... only kidding (sort of). These flower forms are addictive with variations in shapes, heights, decor and rim application color
  18. Very nice piece - yes large Welz are very hard to find
  19. Thank you for that, maybe no lead but heavy glass just the same, both bases (bottom of vase) have about a half inch of thickness in the glass
  20. First to the possibilities: It could be some other creature because Belgian company Scailmont also did huge pieces and also did a satin finish although I have never seen their satin finish on a pull...
  21. Welz dish is 5 1/2” to capture the scale of the big fish
  22. And you beat me on it- good eye!! I surely would have published this cluthra piece but I’m glad you did. Love it!!
  23. i would look for it in libraries or museums, there are about 20-30 pages that concern us with Bohemian glass of a very small era....
  24. Also they might be Welz because if a shape I saw (with double spiral handles) or Harrach with a similar decor and enamel
  25. Nice post -I believe this finish (acid or oxide) was a sprayed when the piece was hot, then re-fired. The pontil shouldn’t have the Iris finish. Finishes where the pontil has the same finish as the re...
  26. That is a good question and one that might lead to changing this post. 1. For starters I don’t know the history of the Glass Mark Lexicon, where it came from, how many revisions, etc... I did book so...
  27. Fantastic pieces
  28. Great piece, love the enamel work, does it come in red or brown?
  29. Great artistic display, I like seeing color, scale and shape soo perfectly shot. Great tango The Regent add is a great grouping and an important bit of research- not so much for maker but as an imp...
  30. Awwwwe, dang- biker got all soft. Thanx to you for doing the hard work of keeping the flame of research going for Welz... now for the book
  31. They could be late Wilhelm Kralik from Lenora Czech Republic (then Czechoslovakia), there are a few examples of this decor if you look under Czech glass
  32. Love it, nice colors agree. Belongs in the 60’s London polyester scene
  33. Oh, so now the star pattern is called the Starburst decor...? Ok, what the hell
  34. Sorry I didn’t see this earlier, I think this it’s a very nice piece that I would have called kralik 100% a while back too.
  35. Very cool thank you
  36. Not at all, it was flattened out
  37. It looks to me like the iPhone does this sometimes, (makes me look skinnier) the vase is slightly wider than pictured- very common shape in 8”,11”, 12”, 14”. There are a few kralik vases that combine ...
  38. First one is 9” inches, the glass is lighter than most Ruckl but there is debate about that because many of Ruckl satin glass (speculative) is very thin. This one is thin and not like the yellow with ...
  39. I was locked in onetime after hours for 4 hours and enjoyed all the exhibits! you sir have an admirable beard
  40. Just a beautiful mottling and shape
  41. Oh, we are at a loss.... there is a big pond of beautiful unidentified pieces. This one is great for its intense color, shape and finish
  42. Good weight and not to big, about 7”. I’m glad you didn’t go for it as well
  44. All good info- this red vase is associated with the straight line mark ... and some kralik pieces appear with that signature but Craig is right in saying that it’s too early for a positive attribution...
  45. Love it, I knew there was a place for those pastels! Very eye appealing
  46. I love small vases! The green one looks like white glass with purple lines, spatter and powder with the green coming over as a casing glass - is this correct or is the surface casing glass crystal?
  47. Welz has a very specific spatter (confetti) combinations on black-based glass. I have categorized them as bicolor (red or yellow on black base) tricolor (any two colors on base) and multicolor - more ...
  48. I see a beautiful assortment of Czech glass and BB makes no distinction as to the maker- the shape is different from this red one. It looks like the shapes are Welz to the left and kralik type to the ...
  49. My over arching theory is: there is a “core line” to each of these companies that is unmistakeable to that company... then there are relatives and distant relatives. I have been humbled lately from hi...
  50. Breautiful piece warren - I had it in red and I have seen white too.
