SOLD - Welz Harlequin Honeycomb Bohemian Czech Spatter Glass Vase

Your Price: $39.99
Not for Sale.
Part Number:G1232
A small ribbed spatter or end of day decorative vase. 3.85 inches tall, 3 inches across.  I bought this years ago just because I liked the colors and it was unusual. It is unmarked and  I tried for a long time to find this shape in some other glass, just so I know what to call it. I never have found another example so I know it is not common.  Eventually I found the pattern which is also very unique on the glass collector web site and ID this as a Franz Welz Harlequin Honeycomb pattern. Franz Welz has been around since 1728 but it looks like this piece was probably made sometime between WWI and WWII. Condition on this is really excellent. No issues. so if you are a collector of Welz you will not be disappointed adding this new shape...

Here some info from the collector site

The Franz Welz glassworks was founded in Bohemia in 1728, and was in production until around the 1930's. The factory was also known as Antonienhütte. Franz Welz glass is most noted for a wide range of colorful artistic glassware produced during the 1920's & 1930's. Output at this time was similar in style to Kralik glass. Welz glass sometimes bears the acid etched mark "Made In Czechoslovakia" and has been noted to carry labels with the words “Royal Art Glass", "Franz Welz Klostergrab", "Made in Czechoslovakia", "PeDeBe" or the initials "F.W.K."

I have been collecting Art Glass for about 20 years. I used to live next to a large flea market and a couple big antique malls. So I would pick things up whenever I saw something that fit the collection or I thought was a good deal. I sold about 50 paperweights last summer and I am getting pushed to sell the rest as I am relocating.  Please check out my ebay store as I will be putting things up all fall. Thanks
