  1. Actually, there is no Ruckl there. The 3 shorter examples are by Josephinehutte, two being examples from the Vineta Kristal line designed by Pfohl. The other is a satin carmel spatter by them. Th...
  2. It strikes me as strange that you would question 2 pages of production literature in the possession of Welz descendants. First let me ask exactly where it was that I stated that I doubted that the boo...
  3. I agree with Harry. My hesitation is not based on a desire for everything to remain the same. I am only looking for, at least from my perspective, some supporting evidence actually be provided to sup...
  4. I am not sure what your question means about Welz documents.... I am always a little surprised when a conversation about one subject boomerangs back to a conversation about my research. We appear to...
  5. My comment #23 was in response to a comment which has now been removed from this forum. That comment mentioned newly seen design books which are owned by a glass artist in the Czech Republic. Their so...
  6. I am not really trying to be combative here, but in all fairness, I must speak my mind on the subject. I am aware of the design books, and of their history. I have read the article talking about t...
  7. I have researched Welz for well over a decade now. In that time frame, I have made quite a few attempts to contact museums in the Czech Republic through the years with simple inquiries. I have even ma...
  8. Yes, that group of images is Bicolor Glatt. http://www.kralik-glass.com/kralik-images/glattsilberirisbicolor/kgsb1.jpg
  9. In looking at the images, the Bi-colored Glatt pieces are well known shapes. The lower right images of Kralik Vulcan are fabulous.... One of the rarest, if not the rarest Kralik decor. In 15 years I...
  10. Great stuff!!
  11. So I am thoroughly confused now. Originally this piece was attributed to Kralik, and are seen on occasion with the arched mark also attributed to Kralik. That attribution had been accepted for a long ...
  12. You are welcome. In 15 years of research of varying European glass, I have only seen maybe a dozen vases in this decor. I have seen 3 in the same ground as Colori's example in this post. Two of them...
  13. Here are some other examples as mentioned by Michelle. http://www.kralik-glass.com/CW/GGV3.jpg
  14. Here is the mark which has been seen on a handful of examples of this decor in varying grounds, to include cased examples like the links above. http://www.kralik-glass.com/CW/GGV4.jpg
  15. I looked last night for a bit last night but could not find my copies. Here is an example of the same vase without the mark. I will look some more today for it. It is clearly marked with Germany. ...
  16. There is a version of this decor found on a satin finish cased green vase with a white interior lining. The embossed decor is the same as this example, and the vase is found with a "Germany" provenanc...
  17. The following is the exact quote in Monogram 121, a monograph that was the result of a research request I made to Tom Felt reads: "The glassware offerings are extensive and while only rarely is a m...
  18. The idea may have originated with an American glass collector Charcoal, but it turned out to be applicable to Czech glass also. It may also apply to other glass, and it may also apply to other types o...
  19. I would add that the idea that Butler Czech glass groupings were generally a single line of glass being represented, was actually a reference to their own catalogs, and not ads they ran elsewhere like...
  20. Yeah... That is what I said about this grouping 2 years ago when you said it was all Kralik. Laughable.... I also show it in my post you can see here. LOL https://www.collectorsweekly.com/storie...
  21. The first release of this LP did not have "A Horse With No Name". When the single was released and was a huge hit, it was added to the LP to boost sales. Great Album. Great band.
  22. FWIW, personally, I would be inclined to think that this may be Welz production. Welz made the Maze decor, and also used a very distinctive Cadmium Yellow color in their production. The color of yello...
  23. As another example of the point I am trying to make, this linked image shows a decor in Ruckl production line art. So the question then becomes, which of the webbed decors here are Ruckl, if any. Whic...
  24. Jericho, We are going to get along, but I will always press for evidence to support claims. It is something I have been prepared to do, and have always done regarding Welz research. I am of the opi...
  25. The attributions of Marquetry (Flowerall) and Bambus to Kralik is not work I did, but was done by Alfredo. Those attributions, and many more, preceded my even working on my website. At the time, and s...
  26. It is a little darker, possibly photography, and also possibly the amount of colored shards used to create it, but it is definitely Cadmium Spatter. http://www.kralik-glass.com/welzcadmiumspattera...
  27. Posting images and showing what supports the claims was what I was hoping to see. There are certainly some reassignments which can be supported, but reassigning 100+ decors to Kralik based on Floweral...
  28. I agree with Jericho, but 7 years ago there was empirical evidence and references to many museums to support the work folks were doing. I see none of the current "work" being shown, and as a resul...
  29. The shape is Welz, and is seen in 3 or 4 other Welz decors.
  30. If you present supportable empirical evidence, then I do not need to take your "word" for it. Empirical research speaks for itself... But in the last 10+ years, I have actually never seen you post a s...
  31. Why would I chase Steinwald production when I have my own research to do? I make Welz claims, and I provide empirical evidence to back them up. You make Steinwald claims, and then run and hide fr...
  32. Gee Charcoal, maybe you could explain where the Passau, the Tango Exhibition, Truitts, and others made mistakes in the empirical research. Sorry buddy, but you saying the work was wrong is beyond bein...
  33. I am sure you do agree with him. I am extremely interested in seeing someone making these claims provide, at a minimum, empirical evidence to support the claims. There are about 10 different variants...
  34. Charcoal. I was wondering if you could provide any evidence to support your claim which in effect would move all of these from Kralik production to Steinwald? I am also curious what ever became of ...
  35. Possibly Peggy. I am not declaring that it can't be by Steinwald. I am simply pretty confused about how we get there in light of the pertinent questions that remain. If I apply the same methodology to...
  36. So it appears to be your opinion Charcoal, that these examples of glass are a match to the Steinwald line art directly above them in this linked image? Is that an accurate statement? http://www.kra...
  37. The attribution of Peggys piece to Steinwald appears to be based on two pieces of artwork in a lighting catalog. The two suggested decors are: Decor 1079 Decor 2044 I am curious as to what the ...
  38. Your vase is Czech, and produced ca 1925. I am not sure the maker has ever been identified, which is true for a good portion of this type of glass.
  39. My take would be that the reference to "Jesus the Profit" is a jab at the churches and their monetizing the Christian religion. I would doubt it has much to do with Jesus and his role in the early tra...
  40. The decor on this vase and the others is a 3 color spatter glass on a clear ground. Likely a type of spatter that any number of houses made. I think the link to a possible attribution could be made if...
  41. When comparing shapes as part of the process to see if an attribution can be reasonably made, it is most important to pay attention to smaller details regarding the shapes. IN the link below I have pu...
  42. Great example. I do not think the decor has been seen before. Great find!!
  43. Charcoal, Since it would seem that your knowledge of Welz, and the research that has been done is not up to speed, you might want to pick up the articles in "All About Glass" on Welz. You know the ma...
  44. My experience with baskets has been that the number of shapes, although they made quite a few different ones, are more limited in number than many classifications of regular Welz production shapes. ...
  45. I am of the opinion that this is a Welz basket. The assertion that a white ground color points to a particular maker is not really supportable. Any guess as to the company that imported them is ce...
  46. This decor and shape are not related to Welz production in any manner that I am familiar with.
  47. As far as I am aware, this is not Welz production. Neither the décor or shape have been linked to Welz production. Although not the same, it does bear a strong shape resemblance to this piece: ...
  48. The WVMAG Monograph 59 is NOT a glass dealer catalog. The source of the catalog which was initially published in 2006 by the museum, was firmly established about 8 years later and the foreword was rev...
  49. Your selection of examples stands as a fine testament to the benefits of properly and logically applying empirical methodology, when studying glass and curating a personal collection. I absolutely lo...
  50. I have a different approach to comment 1 because I have grown completely intolerant of direct comments which are as you say "disingenuous, aimed purely at causing trouble." I have found through the...
