The pair certainly look like what I refer to as Cadmium Spatter by Welz. A fairly unique color combination in a spatter decor. The other vase is a classic Welz shape in a color combination I have not seen before, especially the interior color.

I would say they are all Welz production.

Thanks... Much nicer pics too!!

OK to copy and use them?

On page 11 of this discussion I posted a burnt orange decor which I have suspected for a long time is Welz. Immediately following that post John posted a very organic form in the same decor, at that point in 2013 it was unidentified.

I recently have come into possession of a Welz trophy vase in a shape confirmed with about 5 or 6 different décors. That trophy vase is the same décor as the examples on page 11 shown by myself and John.  The trophy vase, I believe, was sold to a refiner who applied the metal base and the white enameling.

I am of the opinion that this trophy vase supports the idea that Welz made the décor, and that both my example and John's are Welz production.  I am posting a couple of image showing my trophy vase, the Vase of John's, and also a couple of other Mica infused décors by Welz.

The green example is actually on a shape which has been identified with discovered production literature as being by Welz.

I would also note that the two example I own, and the one by John, are the extent of pieces I have seen in the décor.

Well..... that only took 4 years!!  :-)

A fair few roads out there to be navigated too, with plenty of unidentified Bohemian/Czech glass still to be researched.

Posting this trophy vase because I did not find another with this exact shape, the vase is 8" or 20cm tall, cut rim and white interior.

Another Welz trophy shape is very similar though, shown here with a pink and green decor (without mica):
