  1. 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...
  2. Love it love it love it,
  3. 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...
  4. Nah, you should sell it... only kidding (sort of). These flower forms are addictive with variations in shapes, heights, decor and rim application color
  5. Very nice piece - yes large Welz are very hard to find
  6. 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
  7. 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...
  8. Welz dish is 5 1/2” to capture the scale of the big fish
  9. And you beat me on it- good eye!! I surely would have published this cluthra piece but I’m glad you did. Love it!!
  10. 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....
  11. Also they might be Welz because if a shape I saw (with double spiral handles) or Harrach with a similar decor and enamel
  12. 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...
  13. 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...
  14. Fantastic pieces
  15. Great piece, love the enamel work, does it come in red or brown?
  16. 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...
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. Love it, nice colors agree. Belongs in the 60’s London polyester scene
  20. Oh, so now the star pattern is called the Starburst decor...? Ok, what the hell
  21. 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.
  22. Very cool thank you
  23. Not at all, it was flattened out
  24. 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 ...
  25. 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 ...
  26. I was locked in onetime after hours for 4 hours and enjoyed all the exhibits! you sir have an admirable beard
  27. Just a beautiful mottling and shape
  28. 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
  29. Good weight and not to big, about 7”. I’m glad you didn’t go for it as well
  31. 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...
  32. Love it, I knew there was a place for those pastels! Very eye appealing
  33. 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?
  34. 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 ...
  35. 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 ...
  36. 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...
  37. Breautiful piece warren - I had it in red and I have seen white too.
  38. Thank you, I think Ruckl is likely here because there is also a flat bowl with a variegated rim in a very similar if not exact decor. That shape is both a kralik shape and a Ruckl shape
  41. Perfect for as a game a thrones popcorn bowl
  42. Fantastic piece the decor looks 1930 the shape looks 1900... very interesting
  43. I think it’s a kralik decor and shape but the polka dots are a mystery
  44. Fantastic piece
  45. Great to see a set, never seen such an array
  46. I think you are right, see how far we’ve come? I’ll redo the post later of get rid of it- but while we are on the subject Welz has as many more texture now than I thought it did.
  47. I’m a sucker for this kind of stuff- got too much of it
  48. I see it, super different. The pintil looks more modern like 1950 or sooner- almost machine made! It has a super thin rim too? The piece has an earlier shape and a very different enamel work more deco...
  49. Great collection Peggy, does it ever get hard to decide which cabinet to put the new piece? Nouveau or Deco?
  50. - 'a bunch of miniature pieces and some generic shapes of a larger size as well, specially in the Tango style.' I couldn’t disagree more, Franz Welz as documented has an incredible array of shape...
