The museum in Nový Bor also attributes some striped vases like yours as Welz production.
Surely - just another pointer... The longer I collect the more I become reluctant to 100%
statements. At any time a successfull design and technique may have been copied within a
short time by others who had the means and skills, too, I suppose...  ::)

Your comments are appreciated and yes! there has been some ambiguous comments regarding this vase, however, I can understand some of the reasons.  It is of course difficult to attribute this vase to any one maker.   I am currently still trying to obtain information and do understand that this can take some time.   Whilst browsing today, I manage to find a vase that is very similar to mine.  There is limited amount of info. however, the vase bares every resemblance.  The overlay and filigree and most importantly the shape of the vase, seems to me, that it could be made by the same maker? ::) Mmmmmmm!

IMHO that one is most likely a Harrach life light (examples of which I showed earlier). Yours is not a life light though

Hi Christine,  I am aware that my vase is not a Harrach Life Light.  Having read the other comments and carried out my own research and based upon, the more than useful information gathered , I am still convinced  the vase has all the qualities of being Harrach.  That is not to say it is though and would like to make that very clear, as I am no expert on the subject matter.   I've, yet again, reviewed the Welz and Ruckl design as an area of possibility, and as stated before, I cannot see any resemblance, unless I am looking in the wrong place ::).  I would most definately elliminate Ruckl from my line of enquiries, unless stated otherwise.   In view of this, I am enlclined to follow the same thoughts as Dirk in relation to this uncertainty.

Unless any other information comes to light.  I would label/describe this vase as Bohemian, late 1800's  ;)

very possibly Harrach. They seemed to like this stripey stuff.

Thanks! Christine,   Yours and other GMB members comments and info. have most certainly helped me.   At least I can narrow it down to Bohemian, possibly Harrach.....................  just to keep out of line of fire by 'Operation Ebay............ I mean Operation Eagle Eye'  ;D.   Thanks for all your help.

Here are a few examples of Harrach vases in a similar vein.  Sorry about the poor photo quality.  This is at the Passau Museum.
