Additionally, in the absence of completely misinformed postings about Welz by someone in this forum, like those claiming that their production facility was actually a coal processing plant, or that some of their documented production is Kralik, there is not really much to discuss. I choose to no longer engage with the resident "fool's fool", even in light of a recent claim that I seem to have figured something out. ROTFLMFAO. In reality, these would be the only conclusions I have arrived at recently. If one is foolish enough to believe that something other than that has happened, that would simply be their delusion...... I mean mistake...... I mean choice. (Read more)

  1. This looks great....... and you have not even gotten to the brightly colored stuff yet!! Can't wait to see it all. I love the shelves in white..... Makes the glass really pop!!
  2. I am of the opinion that this is quite possibly Welz production. It has several attributes which point that direction. The "Snowflake" crimped rim is certainly one of the strongest indicators. I saw m...
  3. I am basing the attribution on the fact that Jericho has seen the same decor on the fan vase shape I have in white. This decor is very scarce, and in 10+ years I have likely seen about a half a dozen...
  4. These look really good..... I was brought up eating potato pancakes, and also potato dumplings that were made by my grandmother..... I still make both of them myself...... I made sure she taught me ...
  5. This decor is believed to be by Portieux Vallerysthal. You can see some information in this post about the decor. The fan vase I posted is white, but has been seen in the same decor, which I mention...
  6. I meant yellow sapphire.....
  7. A stone this color could be a Spinel, a yellow saphire, or also possibly citrine, which is a variety of yellow quartz. The best thing you could do for yourself, if you collect these types of ston...
  8. Your piece appears to be an etching produced with a plate. The plate was likely copper. You can tell it is an etching by the embossed edge all the way around the printed image. The design is etched i...
  9. This link will show images of Spinels in a wide range of colors. https://www.google.com/search?q=spinel+gem+colors&tbm=isch&source=univ&client=firefox-b-1-d&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjIpNOu9rTkAhUEM6wKHdjo...
  10. I love these old leather binders. I have one that I bought 40 years ago at a garage sale for $1. It looked quite rough, but I had hopes it would clean up. Some saddle soap and elbow grease, and then ...
  11. It is also quite possible that this could be a Spinel. I gave my wife a gorgeous ring from an estate that has a large stone similar to this color (always hard to tell from pics) and it tested as a Spi...
  12. Actually, in looking at the Replacement pieces again, they have different style handles and sizes. It is also noteworthy, that this example is titled in the post as a Wallace 663, but the handle says ...
  13. No apology necessary. From the links, it appears that the model number of the one in your link is actually 4238, which is likely the pattern number used for Sterling, and also a slightly different siz...
  14. I ran a weekly estate auction for several years and do not recall ever seeing a piece of Wallace that was not marked Sterling if it was. Here is a Replacements link for this piece. https://www.re...
  15. This piece is Silver Plate. If it were sterling silver, it would be marked as such by the model number and makers mark. .
  16. Great looking table. Cleaned up nicely. I will actually be in the area of Cripple creek in a couple weeks, My brother lives near there in Florissant and works at the Gold mine. I am taking a trip fro...
  17. Thanks to those that have stopped by, and also to those that commented.
  18. Cool piece in a decor I have not seen before.
  19. I saw him quite a few years ago in Seattle at the Paramount theater. He performed with Kitaro... and not just the same show, but with him. It was a fabulous show. I was selling high end audio gear fo...
  20. The foot style, with the impressed country of origin, is a production detail that has never been linked to any production house that I am aware of.
  21. I believe this is a Welz example. This particular basket is seen with 3 different rim treatments. This one, one without an applied rim color, and a crimped one with an applied rim treatment. The crimp...
  22. ca 1925 - 1935 would be my take on it.
  23. As far as I am aware, the only Welz piece in this grouping is the candlestick. The marbled looking piece on the left end is one I believe to be Kralik production. I agree the blue pulled feather is R...
  24. Great. Look forward to seeing it!
  25. The lines are from the mold, similar to their most prolific basket form. The reason for a ponsil mark is that in order to avoid the use of a punty rod, the piece needs to have a base of some sort for...
  26. Nice find!! Your vase is a classic shape in a decor referred to as Variegated Green Mica. It is Welz production ca. 1925.
  27. Sorry, also meant to say the firm was Bohemian/Czech.
  28. Your vase is production by the firm of Rindskopf ca 1900. The decor appears to be their version of Papillon. Nice find.
  29. Tough couple of days..... I meant to say my comment was a typo.......
  30. My comment was a type. I meant to say that I do not believe the legs have been cut down.... Sorry about that.
  31. My pleasure. I Look forward to seeing it cleaned up and oiled up!!
  32. More images of the piece would help to evaluate overall condition. Your table is in the Eastlake style. Eastlake is a style of furniture which was popular from the 1870's to the 1890's, or late Vict...
  33. Discoveries such as this are of huge importance to me, as they allow us to identify Welz production that otherwise would simply remain unidentified as being theirs. Without the decoupage spatter bei...
  34. My comment would be that there is nothing substantive that links the impressed country name on the underside of the tripod feet to Kralik production. I would also state that I am not aware of any soli...
  35. Absolutely gorgeous piece of glass.....
  36. Cool piece. Great color!!
  37. The double vase is a shape I have only seen the one time that I can recall. I have also seen an example of a version with 3 attached ribbed globes that are the same basic shape. That one was in a whit...
  38. For what it is worth, here are a couple of other examples. http://www.kralik-glass.com/images/Peloton.jpg
  39. Your Coltrane LP was released as a first issue in 1957. The label on your copy of the LP indicates that this pressing was produced in the period of 1959-1962. Values vary quite widely based on cond...
  40. Hi there, Yes they are UV reactive.....

  43. Love Love Love this one!! Stellar MCM Atomic!!
  44. This is a great find.... I love this one!!
  45. Love this one. I have not seen this decor on a shoe before either! A great find!!
  46. I have not seen it before, but it shares some fairly distinct characteristics with some Welz pieces. Usually the Welz examples fade from green to light pink. Strong similarities to the back piece in ...
  47. Gorgeous and Extremely Elegant!!
  48. I sometimes wonder if the glass houses made different products (shapes) to sell to refiners. I find it a little unusual, that with the number of unidentified enamel work pieces we see, why aren't mor...
  49. Straight rods of clear glass would be pretty impossible to place in a mold that has curved sides. They would also be very difficult to attached to the sides of a partially blown vessel that did not ha...
  50. What a great find!! Very cool!
