What a nice sized example..... Now to find that special place for it!! Congrats...
Here is the group... http://www.kralik-glass.com/images/WelzShapeX3.jpg
Here is another example in another marker Welz decor.... https://d3h6k4kfl8m9p0.cloudfront.net/stories/Dj7L6osB0b31Qp4VQntRUg.jpg
Great find. This shape is seen very infrequently....... I sent you an image of this form in a much more recognizable Welz decor..... an unmistakable Welz decor actually.....
An interesting find for sure!!
This will be my one comment on this topic. My intention is top provide some information which I believe supports an opposing opinion on this subject. I certainly mean no disrespect to Jericho. I will...
I would add that it is a great find with the label. This is only the second or third example I have seen with the label still on it.
These are nicely made pieces of glass. I have to laugh every time I see one though. Back in mid 2012 in this forum there was a huge push by a small group of people to bombard the forum with Ruckl ...
This is a truly stellar example of Welz production. This same shape is found in Harlequin Honeycomb also.
I agree Harry.... It isn't.... or it is... :-) That is my position and I am standing firm.....
Personally, I find the conclusion that the two vases in different sizes but the same shape in your second link in the comment above to be by two different houses, to be un supportable. You claim the d...
The surface treatment on the green and red mini pitcher or creamer is seen on a variety of Welz piece. Nice assortment of Welz pieces. I like the large appearance difference between the light and dark...
There are likely a number of houses aside from those 2 that made production in a decor like this. I would not rush to a maker unless the shape of the piece has been solidly linked to a specific produ...
Some other decors on the shape. :-) https://d3h6k4kfl8m9p0.cloudfront.net/stories/FsVBSOGQCtRngHZ.-cccAg.jpeg
A fabulous find!! Congrats....
It is a great shape. They are found both with and without legs. I have not seen a pink frit version ...... yet.... I have seen the shape in about 16 or 18 different decors.
I posted a set of baskets about a year ago, and one of them in this rim crimp has the same surface texture on it.
Yes Ironlace, they are insidious the way they just kind of creep in and keep growing.... Sklo.... Yes the inside of the handle has a small flat area. I also have a light green basket which is simi...
Thanks Scott..... My ruse didn't work? LOL
Just to be clear, Barock is the German spelling of a word which translates to both English and French as Baroque.
These little pieces are wonderful examples of the diverse aesthetic that is found in Welz production. Congrats on getting this one. I think these examples are little treasures with large bold person...
I believe that the handle prunt style, combined with the pontil finish work would tend to point towards Rindskopf.
IronLace. If that was an ebay lot, I think I saw that one and watched it. It was extremely cheap, but it's location involved very high shipping to get it here to the U.S. I have only seen 2 or 3 of ...
I have lots of others in my collection.... and yes.... probably a lot more still to find....
I would be interested in knowing if the piece has a pontil mark of not. If so, how is it finished? Rough grind? Highly polished? just snapped? Thanks Interesting piece for sure. Usually seen in ...
I have the last one, except in red and with a slightly different rim/neck area. On my example, the neck/rim connected to the body is like funnel. Mine has a mark on it that is not like the mark on an...
My pleasure. I am glad to help when I can.
plain green iridescent pieces are among the hardest to identify unless the shape is known to come from a specific glass house.
You really should avoid selling sites as a research source to identify glass. Although both of those ebay pieces are being offered as Loetz, neither of them are Loetz.
Lovely pieces.... Love the pics also...
I do not know who made, but I would suspect Artfoot is right. In my opinion, it is not Bohemian/Czech production, and not by Kralik.
TOD says: "Have you ever noticed that Kralik was the only one that did not use the MADE IN... part of the acid mark. Apart from Loetz, who had a Czech0-Slovakia, when it did have a mark on it's glass ...
Monogram 121, which I had Tom Felt assemble for me for research purposes, shows all of the Czech glass ads by Butler from 1901-1941, to include some non art glass examples. The only appearance of the ...
Jericho asked: "On another note, does anybody know the chronological order of those BB posts in regards to the BB Bambus post? Do they come before, the same time or or after the BB Bambus page?" Can...
There are also several issues with shapes being shown in that link that do not actually match the ad shapes they appear to be linked to. By doing so, it show pieces in decors as "Kralik", when in fact...
Jericho: We have all made mistakes at some point. It is inevitable. I think the only thing we can really do is strive hard to avoid them when we can, and be open to accepting and correcting them if ...
For someone like me that rides, and also likes guns, this is about as good as it gets...... Would love to ride that through downtown.... :-)
I will post it here when it arrives. Should be by the end of the month. I look forward to shooting it and also the Ruger No. 1.
@Blunderbuss2 I have a black powder rifle coming also, although I do not know anything about it, other than it being a newer long gun. By newer, I mean about 50 years old. I will be interested in se...
I'll probably start with a much smaller load than a 300 grain +P. I like shooting the Glock 45 cal. This will be an interesting comparison. My father in law used it for hunting and it has a scope on ...
Some of the Welz production is just so crazy!!! Great basket.... I love it!!!
I love these little pieces., and this is definitely one of the better decors they come in.
I have a new toy coming and I will do a write up about it when it arrives. My father in law gave me a 2000 Ruger Old Vaquero 45 Colt. It is a well loved and used revolver which will take +P ammo up to...
For now I will add this: The baskets in image 1 are both Welz. The decor on vase 1 is the same decor as the 2nd Welz basket. This is not a decor that I have ever seen linked to Kralik production. T...
I would add that the example in the Diamond Bubble has a ground and polished rim, the rest are fire polished.
The examples you are referring to are the examples I referenced as having studied. I arrived at the conclusion that the shape was not Loetz production about 6 or 7 years ago, maybe a little longer. T...
For what it is worth, and certainly meaning no disrespect, I have always found this shape to be quite problematic in using it as a partial pathway to an attribution. As you know, the body of PN III-2...
One of the first pieces of glass I purchased suspecting Welz as the maker, is an example like the one on the left.
The reason I requested dimensions, to include the height of the open desk, was to figure out the height of the base/feet it would have sat on. Those desks are generally 28 to 30 inches off the floor. ...
Great piece. I am curious as to the dimensions of the piece? I am also interested in the distance between the floor and the desk panel when it is open?
