  1. Hahaha, as I recall I sold it and bought it back- does that sound familiar?
  2. Haha sklo, what did I know four years were right in questioning! In grouping pieces it’s easier to see attributions that don’t belong to the single item. In picture 2 & 3 are a series of kra...
  3. The size, glass thickness and shape are all within Welz range, thank you for sharing it so we can be on the look out
  4. Very nice workmanship - beautiful
  5. Yes, it’s of the same period, I have it in red with black feet
  6. Very interesting variation to these decors, thank you
  7. Very nice find Warren - have seen the purple color tango accented by yellow and blue but rarely in red. I have one with the six vertical drips. Do you think the other times I have seen black with red ...
  8. Love this post, very thorough and amazing pieces
  9. This looks good to me, I have seen the bicolor internal decor in Welz. This piece came from a high quality collection this year; pieces were listed as damaged were in perfect condition. Glad I went by...
  10. Please show picture from best angle (above)
  11. I love Ruckl even when there is little known of their production. I do think I have seen many pale stone type pieces - mostly in lamp shades. This is a great shape that resemble both Welz and kralik s...
  12. Yes , perfect match
  13. Nah, no databases I’m not trying to cure hair loss or comprehensively find fossil history. I took the initiative to buy this thing even though it was out my area of collecting for the benefit of other...
  14. Hey AF, I don’t think it’s the same. The painted vase in the pic is orange yellows with with black or cobalt pull-up. This one is a very specific color combination, persimmon, white and maroon. I’ll t...
  16. I’ve had a few over the years, the line and spot is very popular at the moment
  17. Thank you, #2 shows elongated rod pieces, if you follow the line you realize it’s actually an applied spiral broken up by mold or hand tool. The polka dot pieces the are very similar except each lozen...
  18. Yeah, these are great big lidded pieces, great find
  19. Well that’s telling your stepson he was adopted, lol. Just my .02 cents. This piece is just beautiful and the rim is finely ground. I think it is modern piece based on the grinding texture, consistenc...
  20. Here ya go just bought one... was hoping it was but turns out it isn’t
  21. Well Arright, Shimmy Bubble. There is definitely a crossover between Ruckl and Kralik decors and techniques. Nice post
  22. I believe if you look on my posts for kralik metal shapes you can find the orange frit with green pebbles applied on the surface only
  23. Very cool, I have seen a few in the same shape that have lozenges instead of squirly handles, send me a pic of mark, I also have the mini-mark on a three handle vase
  24. Great piece of the Czech puzzle
  25. Nice piece, I like the colors together
  26. Thanx for the Butler Brothers info
  27. Very nice I love the shape
  28. There is a BB ad with all Bambus glass, is it dated? If so, did it get published earlier than the other Czech glass adds, around the same period or later. I guess it would be helpful to see all th...
  29. This post is not a good one to refer to shapes studies outside of the subject I’m looking at here. The butler brother pictures are great by themselves but don’t identify if they are Kralik, Welz or an...
  30. I’m inspired, I think that punched in bowl (deflated football) shape has many decors and so does that tall knuckle shape. I’ll look and post
  31. This post brings up a topic about the the type of pieces that are easy to identify (by shape, color, technique, size, texture and features) and those I find “related” such as these..... that’s why I w...
  32. Ah ok. 1-In picture 1 I don’t think the two baskets match the to vases. I would say 2 Welz baskets on the left and two Kralik related vases on the right 2- Pic 2 and pic 3 are of the same grou...
  33. There are more similarities to kralik in my view. I file these types under “organic shapes”. The series appears in BB catalogue. I’ll try to show what sub-groupings I have too. The signature is the Cz...
  34. 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
  35. Lots a fire! Great vase
  36. I want mine! Whaaaah!!
  37. Very nice piece and well written article, this is a keeper!
  38. Fantastic !! I love the lines pieces more than lines with confetti (more fun colors)
  39. 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...
  41. 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....
  42. I have seen the black tango with red applications but not with the multicolor beads
  43. That’s rare. Never seen this decor on this shape - def The HEX series was a way of showing the decors of Welz
  44. Love this type, if you need note pictures of this kind please email me - email in my bio
  45. 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 ...
  46. Oh man!!!! this is awsome, great help Warren
  47. 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...
  48. Love it love it love it,
  49. 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...
  50. Nah, you should sell it... only kidding (sort of). These flower forms are addictive with variations in shapes, heights, decor and rim application color
