I love it when I see spectacular pieces of glass done in a manner I have never seen before!!
I agree. The three pieces would have cost in the region of $500!! So a bit beyond their actual value.... :-) I knew that the prices were going to be ridiculous in the shop when I came across a pre...
Thanks to all for stopping by my post.... Always appreciated!
They actually had quite a few others, but I felt these these were the most important of the group. I did not want to stand there and take a large group of pieces out and take pictures..... I thought t...
Here is a link to the fan vase I removed from the above image after being made aware that I inadvertently used the forum members image. It has since been posted in this forum. It is an excellent exam...
The first one of these I ever saw was in a clear ground with red windings. These are ultra modern looking, and strike me as very modernist considering they were produced in the 1920's.... almost 100 ...
Thanks Scott. When the patent was discussed in this forum before, it was claimed that since Welz did not make glass, they likely traded rights to use the patented process, for glass to export in their...
I agree. I have looked for a way to link my piece to them for about 4 years.... unsuccessfully I would add.....
Yes, that first one is in Welz production literature, as is the scalloped fan vase..... but apparently that does not mean anything much to some people. Glad to post what I can that is helpful.... We...
I love this example. These are great looking pieces, and as you know I own one, and have for almost 4 years. I am not of the opinion (currently at least), that these are Welz production.
I saw this and was curious about it. It is a very interesting piece....
I sent you an email with an image from the 1959 Skrdlovice line art showing this design. Also, for what it is worth, I consider Anik to be extremely knowledgeable about this region and era of glass.....
Looks like interwar Czech production to me!
I would agree with your assessment of region and time frame for the piece. Nice one!
I especially love those first two pics.
I have had mine for 4 years and have not even come close to identifying who made it. The only toes you could have possibly stepped on are the toes of someone who actually believes it is 1950's or...
Your comment about being older than the 50's is interesting to me. I think there is little doubt that these are ca 1920-1930's. I believe that by the 1950's, post WWII, the Czech glass industry and ...
No, I think it is the 6 or 8 deleted comments that did it.... :-)
With what I have to assume was extreme deleting by CW staff, Jericho's comment above now has no context.
You should really feel no responsibility at all. The overreach on satin decors was fiercely spearheaded by Alfredo in this forum when he proclaimed during his "Rückl" period, that only Rückl made them...
For what it is worth, I am not of the opinion that vase #1 is by Welz. I own the vase in the link below, and I consider it to be an unknown maker. It is quite obviously the same maker. https://ww...
I would like to see some other examples in the decor of the green piece if you have those images.
This is the SL300 Roadster, the sister model to the Gullwing. Clean examples of these cars bring in the high 6 figures at auction. Super clean examples sell for over 1 Million dollars. Amazing to see...
Thanks Kai. I have never seen a copy of the publication you speak of. If this is an example of what they contained, they must be wonderful.
Great pair of shoes!! For what it is worth, these shoes, and the tall ones have been identified in about 15 combined decors.
Great colors and shape...... Well worth the wait I think....
Artfoot, and others who also asked. The size of the mark appears to be consistent with other marks on post WWI Welz production. It can be difficult in some cases to determine if the font is exactly t...
Charcoal says: "Yeah, no marks were used in the identification of this or similar wares. Great observation." The "great observations" come from studying and understanding this type of glass. For t...
Here is another color the decor appears in. This is the same color as the first examples of this decor I identified on candle holders and a small bowl. https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/2497...
Ironlace, I saw your example of that decor, and it helped me to confirm a shape as Welz, and also a style of rim crimp. Although Welz is always surprising to me as I find new shapes and decors, th...
For those tht may not have seen it, here is a link to a post I did regarding sand blasted marks. https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/224647-the-elusive-proof-answering-a-hotly-deba
The ribbing on this example is similar to some examples of earlier ribbed decor examples by Kralik ca 1900, and the green confetti is seen in some interwar production, including an example in my own p...
Jericho, The individual who complained has been doing it for years, while at the same time being one of my most ill informed critics..... Every time it has been done I simply host the images off site....
Moser is also a possibility with that style of enamel work...... and they did this style of variegated yellow glass.
The deleted image can be seen here: http://www.kralik-glass.com/images/CharcoalsPicture.jpg
This appears to be a colorful version of a Lion Fish.
Thanks MacArt. First of all, I am glad that you find these posts informative. I have house guests coming in a few days and may not have the time to do the post quickly. I do think that is an interesti...
Yes Jericho, I have documented approx 525.... :-)
Thanks.... It really just started as a curiosity look at something, and in fact has become a much larger "beast" than I ever thought it would. The research led me where it led me with no real agenda ...
Nice turntable..... Sold tons of those in my days in audio. What cartridge do you run? I saw the Who live on the Who's Next tour. We were up front by the stage, and it was one of the best shows I e...
Thanks Phil, I have been working with these grids since almost the beginning. It was a methodology that allowed me to track verified shapes and also decors. They have been hugely important to my resea...
That example you are referring to Jericho, is the only example of that I have ever seen. The example I own was a very generous gift from a Welz collector in Germany that has followed my work since ver...
Perspective I think on that one. The decor is on a couple other shapes also. My new one is a different shape than those in image 3. Glad you like these. There are approx 525 Welz shapes I have ident...
There are approx 525 Welz shapes I have solidly identified. About 30% of the 525 are found in 3 or more decors. About 10% of the 525 are found with 5 or more decors on them. About 5% of the 52...
Just about every Glue Chip piece (to include overshot with a very similar appearance) was attributed to Kralik by Alfredo many years ago. I had a glue chip page up on my website in the beginning based...
My pleasure. Glad to help.
Thank You for taking the time to look.
Great to see the shape in different sizes. I love shape studies! Great mixture of decors on the three also. I am curious if all of the examples have ground and polished rims?
For what it is worth, this is indeed a thorn vase by Welz in the Harlequin Honeycomb décor.
What I find to be most interesting is the appearance of hypocrisy I see in this forum from my greatest "critic". While many groups shown to be Welz production by my research, and shown here as such (s...
