The three-ball base seems to be quite typical for Welz. See Craig's (and others?) site on Bohemian Glass for examples.

I have a pair with spiraling pinchwork up the body and in yellow-white spatter glass. The yellow-white spatter colour scheme has had a bit of discussion in the Board, and I think most if us here are now aware that it does not specifically mean it's Moser - even if some eBay sellers might still like that idea.

Actually Keith,  it is 'Peat Monster Malt Whisky'....we just add the 'bog' bit for a laugh  :chky:.....and in all honesty,  I think it is a blend of two different whiskies, rather than a single malt......considered an aquired taste!

I just collected a Komaromy piece from the seller, so am on cloud nine again.

Thanks KevinH, for taking the time to explain.......I'll try to learn more about glass other than animals.

Below are some photos of my pair of vases mentioned earlier. They are 19cm (7.5 inch) height and 6.4 cm (2.5 inch) across the ball base section.

The ribbing on these is different from Keith's example. There are 15 ribs around the balls and each ball has a nodule, or nipple, at the outer junction of the ribs. The neck has alternating, raised "plain" and "close placed nodule" lines.

It might be interesting for someone to make a study of these types of item to see how many variations of ribbing could be found and to consider whether the variations are in fact all by Weltz.

there has been mention  here (see link below) that 16 ribs is a marker for Welz.

Rosie, I could have used all sorts of other words, but the basics seemed best.

Keith, if our vases have 15 ribs and if Collectors Weekly state that "16 ribs is a marker for Welz", should we think ours are not Welz or that Collectors Weekly just forgot to allow for variations and the point that probably every company that made moulded decorative glass also used a 16-rib mould at some time???

Additional input:

1. The necks of my yellow-white vases have 18 ribs but set in a 9-sided shape - 9 plain ribs form the edges of each section and the 9 raised nodule ribs lie in the centre of each "flattened" side.

2. I have another vase with the same neck and base ribbing structure but without the pinchwork and it has a differing style foot. The neck and base are in clear glass and have the same ribbing structures but the neck is rounded, not 9-sided.

3. I can only find one mould line on the base section - on the top half only of one of the balls! I can't work out how the mould would have been used.
