Accusations of criminal actions, threats of involving law enforcement regarding delusional claims of crimes, and talk in the forum by people discussing guns and who they would use them on is absolutely unacceptable........ This is a "for profit" website, and providing content to the forum aids in their profit seeking ventures. I choose to no longer contribute posts and content to a forum where such reprehensible actions, which clearly violate their forum rules, appear to be willingly overlooked, in their obvious quest to generate income.

  1. Here is an image with your vase next to an example of Kralik Corrugated, which has a smoother surface than the Rindskopf version of the decor. http://www.kralik-glass.com/cwimages/KralikCorrugated...
  2. I would lean towards this example being Kralik, as opposed to Rindskopf. Both the shape, and also the smoother surface texture lean that direction. Great piece in a great mount, regardless of the mak...
  3. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. The shape is Welz, and is seen in 3 or 4 other Welz decors.
  10. 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...
  11. 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...
  12. 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...
  13. 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...
  14. 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 ...
  15. 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...
  16. 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...
  17. 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 ...
  18. Thanks Wow22, I appreciate your comment. Up into now, I have not really tried. Personally I have been busy remodelling a room in our 1912 home to turn it into a library/media room, buying furniture, h...
  19. Thanks to all that stopped by and loved or commented on my post.
  20. 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.
  21. 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...
  22. 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...
  23. 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...
  24. Thanks to all that stopped by and loved or commented on my post.
  25. Thanks to all that stopped by and loved or commented on my post.
  26. Great example. I do not think the decor has been seen before. Great find!!
  27. Glad to help Bambus1920.
  28. Wow22 - Thanks, I am not all that excited about the glass politics either, but when false claims are made regarding my work or research, I find it necessary to respond in full force. Wish I did not...
  29. I also added some additional images to the 3rd image, of some additional Vineta Kristall shapes in the line.
  30. Glad to help.
  31. Wow22, You are certainly welcome. I found the ID images and have added them to the post with a brief explanation at the bottom of the post text.
  32. A link for Wow22 and Bambus1920... and anyone else that might be interested. :-) https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/297521-aarhus-glasvaerks-a-danish-company-w?in=activity
  33. I will also be posting some Aarhus and Vinetta Kristal examples in a different post for Wow22 and Bambus1920. Lastly, I will be doing a post which will show a very small percentage of known attri...
  34. For WOW22 I have added some basket images to the first image group above. These baskets appear to be the same type and style of production as in Vitrine 35, and are Romanian in origin. I think it i...
  35. Wow22 - The Japanese glass is actually a vase in the Kralik case. Sorry if that was not clear. Image 1 above in the upper right, does contain a mix of baskets to include Welz, Kralik, and an assortmen...
  36. 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...
  37. 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. ...
  38. 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...
  39. This decor and shape are not related to Welz production in any manner that I am familiar with.
  40. 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: ...
  41. 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...
  42. 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...
  43. 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...
  44. And the best part Leah, is that the knowledge of Welz continues to advance and grow in a sound a supportable way with people literally all over the world understanding the research, and collecting it....
  45. Although many glass houses made a similar crimp which could be defined as an "M crimp", no other house made the shorter form with this drastic of a crimp. There are certainly similar examples which I...
  46. I said nothing disrespectful. I simply disagreed with your factually false and unsupportable claim.
  47. You can "beg to differ" all you would like. The decor is not in any manner solidly linked to Stolzle. That is simply an undeniable fact.
  48. Although this version of Martelé is different from Kralik's, this currently unattributed décor has never been successfully linked to Stolzle production. That is a false and completely unsupportable as...
  49. Nothing changed. As far as I am aware, the catalog (Monograph 59) has never been considered to be Hosch. You may have misunderstood what Alfredo said, or he may have mis-spoken. I would have no way of...
  50. In an effort to make sure people are not misinformed, the publication being referred to as a Hosch Catalog in comment 19, is actually a catalog showing Kralik production. The provided link in that com...
