An Art Deco, circa 1930's, unsigned Czech Welz spatter art glass purple and white perfume atomizer. Hardware is marked Made in Germany, as shown in last photo. Although unsigned, it is apparent this piece has all the attributes to say it was made by Franz Welz, as their glass carried a sticker rather than a signature.
Bottle measures 7" to the tip. Base is 2 1/2" in diameter.
The high quality of Bohemian made bottles captured the attention of French, German, and American companies who were looking for beautiful examples to match up with their own hardware. Bohemian crystal was renowned the world over for its innovative styles of glass making, cutting and decorating. Many bottles were decorated with delicate hand enameled designs and accented with gilding. Other bottles had striking cut to clear variations. And some bottles displayed wonderful plays of color from special techniques in the glass which gave them a spattered or marbled effect. Some of the companies who purchased Czech bottles were Marcel Franck, DeVilbiss, Irving Rice, Ingrid, the Mignon Corp, Volupte, Aristo, Erelbe, Gironde and Pyramid. Of honorable mention are the German & Austrian marked bottles. These flacons probably imported from Czechoslovakia and hardware then added inprobably imported from Czechoslovakia and hardware then added in Germany, the hardware will be marked Germany or Tcechoslovakie.
Condition : Very good antique condition with typical wear due to age and handling. There is a small spot inside the glass, which happened during the manufacturing process, as seen in fourth photo. Stating for accuracy purposes. I have purchased several more Czech crystal bottles, so please keep looking as I continue to get them listed.
