A couple more trophies for reference, not sure if we have had this combination of shape and decor before, apologies for the Welz Bubbles vase that is trying to creep into the shot.

Nice ones,  John!  :D

M, sorry I forgot to mention... Yes, completely uranium, also the oxblood-speckled tubes.  :)

They're delicious :)
I don't know whether Welz had a 'colour designer' but they had a particularly beautiful way of combining colours I've noticed.

Hi M,

The Passau actually wrote in the short mention of Welz in their books, that Welz actually worked to separate themselves from the larger houses by differentiating their production artistically.  As I developed a feel for their production and identified different decors and shapes, I started to see that a good portion of their production really does stand out in many different ways. One of the most prominent of those is their use of some pretty wild and unique color combinations.

It was actually not until I had researched them for a couple of years that I even translated and read what Passau had given them in the way of a small mention.

Here´s a few new suspects. I managed to find this new shape in two different decors: red with white stripes,
opalescent layer and green rigaree - and light blue opalescent with electric blue rigaree. The little lifelight in
the same colour scheme came last week on a flea-market.

The basket (the one in the foreground) is an already known Welz shape. Unfortunately I missed the matching
vase in another auction by this seller, but he kindly permitted to use his auction photo here. Thanks!

love the first two!  I've been keeping an eye out for one with the vertical applied rigaree - I really like the design of it.
Craig, yes, their colours are pretty special and quite unique in the way they use them.

Dirk, Those trophy pieces are great.....  Love them both....

I think there could be a possibility that the last piece could also be Harrach. They did some similar items with the style of foot, stripes and the colors. Not seen the rim on it before though...  All cool pieces....  Baskets are great also....  nice finds....  My favorite would be the red and green trophy piece....  WOW....

I am adding a couple of new pieces I have been able to get my hands on recently.

A blue variegated trophy.... not a decor I have seen on one of these before.
 
Also, a yellow variegated tri-lobed heart form. The unique feature of this one is the different style of foot decor. This style of base also helps point to some other suspected pieces that had this style of foot. Although the piece itself stands a little shorter than my other examples of this form with the more typical appliques on the base top, the main body of the piece is the same dimensions, so the difference is in the foot appliques themselves....
