Welz glass - shown below is a combination of pieces from my collection and photos of represenative pieces that I do not currently have in that décor. I have built this page based on the décor research and the décor names found on kralik-glass.com (Craig Orkney's website). You will find here my current vases, bowls and other decorative glassware by Franz Welz of Czechoslovakia.
The Franz Welz glassworks was founded in Bohemia in 1728, and was in production until around the 1930's. The factory was also known as Antonienhütte. Franz Welz glass is most noted for a wide range of colorful artistic glassware produced during the 1920's & 1930's. Output at this time was similar in style to Kralik glass. Welz glass sometimes bears the acid etched mark "Made In Czechoslovakia" and has been noted to carry labels with the words “Royal Art Glass", "Franz Welz Klostergrab", "Made in Czechoslovakia", "PeDeBe" or the initials "F.W.K.".
