  1. Not Stevens & Williams, but Franz Welz production. http://kralik-glass.com/welzzipperarray.html
  2. I believe this to be Welz production. The collar is not reliable enough to use as a marker for their production, but I have to note that I have never been successful at locating known production by a...
  3. Gorgeous Welz Basket in the Victorian Zipper decor.
  4. Bear in mind that Peach Oilspot examples vary quite a bit in terms of the exterior appearance (depth of exterior color) and also iridescence level. All of them exhibit some similar characteristics whe...
  5. I believe your pink vase is Kralik Glatt Silberiris, and the other one appears to possibly be Kralik Peach Oilspot. In your last image at the rim of the new example, it is possible to see a couple o...
  6. Great find... This decor, which is found in very limited numbers, is one that seems to have a number of cosmetic "issues". We will likely never really know if these things were intentional, or the re...
  7. Love your vase!! I have had this piece for about 15 years and I have never been successful at identifying the maker. It is a great decor. http://kralik-glass.com/CW/DSC06120.JPG
  8. These are amongst the most exciting pieces of new Welz I have seen in a while. They are fabulous, and brings the total of this style of engraved examples (pulls with engraved daisies) I have seen in 1...
  9. A gather of glass is partially blown and then introduced to water. The water causes the surface tension of the gather to be broken or fractured, while the interior remains pretty hot. The gather is th...
  10. One of my favorite cars of all time that I owned was a 1961 Silver Hawk. Red with a red interior. Had white details on the fins. Motor was a Studebaker 289, auto transmission with TT (Twin Traction, o...
  11. I love these. This decor is among my favorite Welz decors.
  12. I would add that these are Welz production ca 1900.
  13. This is definitely Welz production in Cadmium yellow. The pitcher shape is found with and without the indents, but with the same ribbing. It is also found with both a round and a rectangular rim like ...
  14. Yes, this is Welz production.
  15. There are more examples of these in known factory literature from Aarhus than Kralik. There is actually more than an outside possibility that it could be Aarhus production. Aarhus used Bohemian gaffer...
  16. The Kirschner attribution is not accurate. It is believed that several firms made this style of production, although most of the production houses can not be identified for the vast majority of these ...
  17. I think likely Murano production, although it may be next to impossible to identify the production house. Lots of generic stuff like this was produced in the 1960's for export.
  18. The decor is referred to as Bittersweet.
  19. Saw them live in Seattle on their only tour. Fabulous band. Great performance. One of my favorite albums of all time.
  20. I saw quite a few shows at Pepperland, to include Pink Floyd with the 4 channel sound system that the venue installed.
  21. This appears to be a variant of the blue and yellow iridescent swirl decor from Welz. First one I have seen with the red instead of the yellow.
  22. I saw them live on the only tour they ever did. Saw them in the Seattle Center Coliseum which was built for the Seattle World's Fair. It was a great concert that I was certainly very fortunate to see.
  23. One of my favorite BTO songs of all time was on the first LP. Stayed Awake All Night.... Classic Randy Bachman guitar work. This is from a live concert in Winnipeg Canada in 2000... Likely his bes...
  24. TOD says "After WWII, Loetz provided several permanent signature marks on their glass after 1920, and the words used are Loetz Austria." Post 1918, Loetz was located in Czechoslovakia, and not Aus...
  25. This is the exact shape shown on the Welz production literature, and identified as Shape 8526. The literature example is in this same base decor, which is referred to as Bubbles. The example shown on ...
  26. Oh yeah... It is still a cool and great LP. It actually had 2 or 3 other variations of covers through the years... But the music was always great!!!
  27. First issue the LP had a cover with the toilet showing in the lower right front corner. Second issue of the cover actually covered it up like you see here.
  28. Cool lamp. The figures are likely poly-chromed Spelter. Just use a very low wattage bulb in it.( 7 to 15 watt) Most of these alabaster type lamps really only used the light to highlight designs in t...
  29. Kralik Honeycomb Panel. A very nice example.
  30. 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...
  31. 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...
  32. 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...
  33. 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...
  34. 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...
  35. 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...
  36. 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...
  37. Yes, that group of images is Bicolor Glatt. http://www.kralik-glass.com/kralik-images/glattsilberirisbicolor/kgsb1.jpg
  38. 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...
  39. Great stuff!!
  40. 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 ...
  41. 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...
  42. Here are some other examples as mentioned by Michelle. http://www.kralik-glass.com/CW/GGV3.jpg
  43. 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
  44. 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. ...
  45. 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...
  46. 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...
  47. 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...
  48. 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...
  49. 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...
  50. 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.
