Art Deco bowl with two colour threading - Kralik?
« on: May 14, 2011, 04:37:26 PM »
Hi
Although I've never seen these colours on threaded Kralik pieces, I can't think of another
maker. Can you? Thoughts as always most appreciated!
Diameter ca. 25cm
TIA
Dirk

Thank you, Keith! I love the contrasting colours of it. It makes the bowl look so modern,
that the auctioneers classified it as 2nd half of the 20th century - together with a Kralik
Millefiori bowl. Maybe the reason they didn't sell in the auction and I got the two of them
afterwards... :)

I think there is a good possibility that this piece is actually by Welz. The color combination is unusual, something they like to do, and I have identified a large number of bowls and footed compote style pieces with bodies shaped in a similar manner.  I have only identified a couple of pieces of glass I believe to be by them which has threading on them.  This may be the third.....  I am not 100% sure, but that is the direction I lean strongly...  

Interestingly, it was actually a piece with a Welz label, in a similar style of body and lip as this piece that got me started on my whole Welz project..... They had all been systematically classified as Kralik, and one day I was sent a group of pictures by a collector who added the comment that there was a Kralik "face bowl" as some call them, with a label reading FWK on it... It was this family of forms that made me realize that Welz product was being attributed incorrectly, and I became curious as to how much of it was out there...... I actually looked at pieces pushed out with tongs as a starting place for my work..... and what I found there was very startling and interesting..... and it grew from there.....

I went through my image library for Kralik threaded and veined pieces and could not find a single example by them which contained two colors of threading on the same vessel.  

Although not the same, I am attaching an image of a couple of pieces I believe to be Welz threaded pieces. The first one contains threading which appears to be the same color of blue, a color which I do not have on any Kralik examples.

Great piece.... Also nice size.....

Dirk.... Email me pics???

Hi Craig
Many thanks for your detailed answer - much appreciated!  :hiclp:
You can imagine Welz wouldn't be a bad answer for me either!  ;)
I'll certainly send you some pictures asap. I've been busy a bit more than usual over
the last weeks, so be prepared for a few more interesting items...  :hi:
