I would think at this point that these are actually Welz production. They are in a decor which is seen on some Welz baskets, and the rim and neck region are the same as the piece I just posted today. ...
Nothing emotional about it. I think this conversation speaks for itself Lisa. Maybe you could leave it alone now. I find your views on Welz and my research to be personally motivated, and something yo...
There is no satisfaction. I find it beyond irritating. If I said how I actually feel about it in honest blunt terms, they would delete my account instantly.
I find it humorous that she is the only one in this forum that I really have a consistent and ongoing issue with. It has been this way for years now. Lisa is intent on proving.... well.... something ...
For what it is worth Lisa, I have never been foolish enough to think I would change your mind. I welcome your comments because I just like to see what you have to say.... I find much of it to be eith...
OK Lisa.... we will see how long you can leave Welz and me out of your posts... that is the only time I comment.
Nicefice.... OK.... I could not tell.... :-) I would disagree and state that street art, and images of it are quite collectible. So the content of the post remains and the comments were deleted...
Imagine that.... Production literature that can help some folks identify glass.... will wonders never cease?? Great pieces....
Thanks for the explanation..... It makes no sense to me..... but thanks for trying. Why does it matter? It matters because when it comes to Welz knowledge, you are about 50 cards short of a de...
Seriously?? You are surprised? These guys employ censorship at their whim. There is a list of what is appropriate and inappropriate in the forum, but they have the following caveat they employ ...
And yet another non answer answer...... Do You believe that the glass in the piece of literature was produced by Welz. Simple question.... It is kind of a Yes or No query. Regarding the provenanc...
Yes.... that is correct Kevin. I have seen items close to those 2, but not exactly the same shapes.
TOD says: "I do believe this glass exists and was made and sold by somebody, of course." So do you believe it was made and sold by Welz?
"It must be gratifying to the descendants to see the interest in their family work." Thank You Scott. They were thrilled to make my acquaintance, and even more thrilled that someone was researching...
So you have also magically, as usual, managed to avoid the root question, so let's discuss the basics. It is clear that you doubt the veracity of the production literature and/or the validity of th...
Facts are facts. Not believing them does not alter that. Thanks again for commenting.... Admins: Please leave this conversation in place, and please do not delete the comments.
The great thing about my research Lisa, is the last thing on a very long list of things I do not need, and never will, is your approval or agreement..... But please keep commenting..... The docume...
I have added an image to the post, and also an edit about that image, which is identified as an edit in the post text.
Thanks for commenting Lisa. I always enjoy it when you help to prove my point. So the possible scenarios seem to be that Franz Alois Welz's granddaughter is mistaken about what was passed to her s...
Thanks to those who stopped by my post....
There is actually no statement above that says this is not Kralik, although I seriously doubt it is. What is stated is that I lean strongly towards Welz as the production house for the piece. I also s...
Many years ago, the use of pink and cobalt was declared in error by a researcher to be a marker for Kralik production. That has in fact been shown to be incorrect. In fact, several companies used ...
I think this could possibly be contemporary production by Silvestri.
Great stuff..... I will try to get some images of some of our lamps taken, and will do a post.... We also live in an old house that was built in 1912.... Love old houses!!
I am curious about this piece. What color is the ground?
We collect figural lighting from this period. Fabulous Chandelier.... Nice find.
These are really cool.... Nice score....
The silver on pink examples are stunning. I am generally not a fan of silvr overl;ay work, as it often detracts from the glass. In this case it is a beautiful addition which helps to highlight the col...
A piece by Welz. Would love to see more pics to see the actual shape. Can not really be seen in this single pic.
Love this, and really love the pink!! Happy New Year!!
Yeah.... I guess the several hundred pieces in my house are hallucinations from the LSD days.... LOL
I love it also Scott. I have about a dozen or so of them.
I would also note that the height of the PK shape is the same basic height as the Welz Burmese example in my collection..
Admin deletions of comments (apparently a new and prolific practice they deem necessary to protect the sensibilities of some forum members) makes Scott's comment seem out of order. The comment is rega...
Always glad to help when i can.
The shape of this example would tend to indicate it is early production Papillon, and produced ca 1900.
In light of a recent post in the forum regarding this type of glass, some Burmese production, and this shape, I thought it might be worthwhile for members to see posts regarding the shape and glass. ...
A wonderfully eclectic collection, accumulated by a wonderfully eclectic person!!!
This is a ca 1880 ad for Thomas Webb Burmese, which also shows the same colors as the actual glass images in the link above. http://www.kralik-glass.com/cwimages/ThomasWebbBurmese.jpg
For those that are not familiar with Webb Burmese, which is very well documented, here is an example of a shape that is by Webb, and also what I suspect to be a copy of that shape by Welz in the middl...
What a fabulous grouping. My observation thus far is that the Welz Burmese production has less of a yellow or strong custard color to it than either the Webb or the Mt Washington Burmese production d...
Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.... I hope the fires leave you alone, and that you and your collection proceed into a new year unscathed.
Merry Christmas to you and Ralph.... And a very Happy New Year.....
I would certainly agree that it looks like Czech production. Great piece!!
I am curious as to exactly what would support the claim that those three examples are actually Kralik?
It is certainly possible that iridescence would cause a perceived variation in the color. The iridescence can cause pieces to appear among other things, "cool" or "warm" depending on the process and t...
Very cool vase, but I have no idea who made it. The enamel work around the neck and down is very reminiscent of Riedel work. Hopefully someone will know.
Thank You Bambus1920. You are far too kind, but I appreciate it.... I just try to keep the information real.
Pretty!! I love it when things react to UV unexpectedly.... Very nice find!!
