  1. Everyone should have the right to express themselves in they way that they want and everyone should have the right of free speech....which has been somewhat eroded by extreme idealogues on the left an...
  2. Wow....fabulous find Al ....and what a size!!!
  3. Very hard to find these days and a particularly nice example...and a warm welcome to CW!
  4. Wacky combination man - I love it!!!
  5. What a great find!!
  6. I was watching this Peggy. Although I'm not a collector of Welz I was tempted, it's just such an elegant and understated piece. Definitely has a 'good' side too. A great addition to your collection.
  7. Just seen this posting - love it and would make a nice addition to my small collection of pieces in this unmistakable Kralik shape.... hahaha!
  8. This is such a cute little pot - I love it!
  9. I was an under bidder on this one, but I let it get away - damn it - very nice and I would be happy to say it was Kralik.
  10. Great to have you back .... we've all missed your wonderful words and contributions. Stay well my friend.
  11. hahahahahaha.... I dying here....!
  12. Great find Craig... I saw this but had nothing to compare it to, had no idea it was Welz... walked on by ... Always learning...
  13. Wow, so a very, very successful trip out then - Totally in love!
  14. I'm happy to agree with you too Peggy, very unusual.
  15. OOOOOOH This is lovely Ivonne. A fabulous find!
  16. Wow... that is a big one Ivonne ... love it!
  17. Great buy Penny! Looked at this for over a week - kept thinking there was something special about it - but I couldn't put my finger on it, then forgot about it. Should have taken your advice and boug...
  18. Happy Christmas Kev!!!
  19. Fabulous piece - love it!
  20. Hi Rick - thanks for the comment. Yeah I really like this décor.... I haven't seen anything other than this colour combination so far,,
  21. At least!
  22. Bottoms up Glasstro!!
  23. Hey Wow, thanks for the comment - actually here is another (much smaller) example of the same décor:
  24. Thanks Glasstro, Tino and Karen for your comments Thanks Ian - very kind of you to say so. And yes, Jericho, always very satisfying to get a unknown decor on a known shape - very satisfying for the ...
  25. Lovverly!
  26. I think it's the pontil that's the anomaly and might suggest a maker other than Kralik?? I have seen this type of pontil on Ruckl attributed pieces. However, if I was making a comparison on the finis...
  27. Let's talk about it...
  28. Sounds like a plan!
  29. Wow - you're spoiling us Jericho!
  30. Stunning pieces - one day!!
  31. You're welcome Rick..
  32. Thanks again Glasstro - I appreciate the comments - cheers!
  33. This is stunning Rick! (Incidentally and nothing to do with this, but... have a look at Kai's article on re cut glass:
  34. Hey Rick - have a look at Kai's article on
  35. These are absolutely adorable - fantastic!!
  36. Still love it - very interesting that this amethyst responds to black light. Good to know it's in safe hands!
  37. Thank you Ian!
  38. Thanks Glasstronaut!!
  39. Thanks Jericho - Yes the shape is certainly 20-30s in design, despite the 'Bohemia' label that might suggest it was earlier. There is also an identical Kralik label that shows 'Czechoslovakia' instead...
  40. Hi Warren - I'm not sure - and rather reluctantly have I just recently let it go, along with some others to make room for some new pieces that I have just acquired from a collector in France - 21 piec...
  41. Hahaha - love it too!!
  42. Wow Bob, what a fabulous size and wonderfully vibrant!
  43. Not a problem Al... funny - I think it looks better that Steuben actually ; )
  44. As I have never actually held a Steuben Aurene piece, can you give me an idea of weight for size, thickness of glass, whether semi-transparent or opaque. I have had a quick look at some examples and t...
  45. Hey there Rick - thanks for popping in! Yeah, it's a bit special....
  46. Thanks Lou, 'liquid gold' describes the effect on this piece very well indeed, and yes I did see that article, and I agree it is very interesting - not sure Kralik actually produced anything that I wo...
  47. Thanks Wow22- yes it is very interesting and even more unusual as despite it's obvious 'art-deco' design the label seems suggests something made sometime before that period.
  48. That's interesting as that would suggest not Loetz - post 1918 marks for Loetz are normally in an oval CZECHO on top SLOVAKIA below??
  49. Love them!
  50. Yeah...well I dunno it's a question that a Loetz expert may be able to confirm or otherwise - I gotta say, I did have a little doubt. It would probably be less questionable if the rim and feet were bl...
