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...
My pleasure. After discussing the shape with Jericho in the other post, I thought this would be an interesting exercise. I am glad you found it useful.
There is a link below to an image which compares three similar bowls. The top bowl in the image is obviously the one I have identified as Welz production, as it is in a decor they produced which is...
I am pretty sure that the light was originally a hanging lamp. The cop over the top of the shade where the chain attaches is geometrically matched to the panels in the shade itself. If it were a marri...
You know me, and I am generally not big on Silver overlay on glass, as I find it distracting from the decors themselves. In this case, I think that the silver is quite nice, and highlights the decor a...
After my discussion with Jericho regarding the shapes in the first row in image 4, I decided that since I own several examples of that shape in varying décors, I would take a set of images showing the...
That would be a valid point if Heacock was the only one that found that to be true. Fortunately that is not the case. In addition to the "others" mentioned in the quote above, my own 10 years of resea...
The top shape in the last image is seen in several examples that are the same basic shape, but the pushed in sides or dimples they created varied in depth and size, and changed the look of some of the...
An exact quote from Monograph 121, written by Tom Felt: "“The glassware offerings are extensive and while only rarely is a manufacturer identified, it was early discovered by Bill Heacock and other...
These are truly a fabulous find..... Never seen anything like them.... and I agree.... not "sleepytime" at all.
Sadly, I saw the pitcher on ebay a couple of years ago, but did not recognize it at the time. When I realized what it was a couple of days later, I could not find it again.... and I spent lots of hou...
I have no idea of age or origin, but I do know that I absolutely love it. What a great design.....
I love the shape of this one..... A great find. Portland Expo??
You are correct in assuming that they are light covers. they push over the small lights common on strings today. I have several sets of these that I purchased new almost 40 years ago.
Nice find... I love the color contrast and the shade of blue.
JenniferH: There are only 2 ways in this forum that comments are deleted. It can only be done by the original poster, or the forum admins. The admins, in some cases, like to remove discussion commen...

The vase was produced ca 1900-1910, and the most likely houses that may have produced it are Franz Welz, or Kralik.
Wow22. When I first started dating my wife she asked me very early on what was "wrong with me". We were in our mid 40's. I smiled and told her "I talk too much".... She told me that was not true....
Great piece of glass!!
By the way, the design registration was granted to S&W on Sept 6, 1886. The number on the bottom should read Rd 55693.
Sorry... Bottles are completely out of my wheelhouse....
Always my pleasure to help.
Your vase is English and is by Stevens & Williams. The number on the bottom is Design Registration number. The line of glass with this style of controlled bubbles is referred to as "Jewell". Very pre...
The post being discussed in comment 10 and on, has now been removed from the forum.
Phil makes a valid point, and the opposite is also true. We see certain styles of production, and assign a date range to the production based on our perception of the aesthetic. We do not really take...
My pleasure, Always glad to help when I can.
As far as I know, it is believed that they did. There is no evidence indicating that they converted to coal at any point prior to WWII. There are writings indicating that when Franz Welz toured Krali...
Kralik production was done using wood burning furnaces, and ash in their production is not that uncommon. They are not known to have converted to coal as a heat source. On a side note, the Siemens...
No, I am correct with the attribution, not because I have 11 years of studying it, but because 11 years of studying it has produced supportable results. I argue with you in particular, because I find...
I have lots of glass my wife hates. LOL But she understands why I have it..... :-) Great vase, in a great shape.
Many times the center of the mold was recessed slightly to aid in making them sit flat without much additional work. Sometimes you will find a piece that has flat grinding to parts of the outer area o...
I agree with artfoot.
The shape of the mold bottom may have been just like that.
Pretty vase..... It does not have pontil work. It would have been blown in a mold, cut from the top, and them polished at the rim. It is most likely Bohemian.
Before agreeing that this is Kralik production, I would need to see this shape with a known Kralik decor on it. We can not look to provenance marks, and need to look to shapes.....
