For those who can no longer afford high end Czech Art Nouveau glass, moving into Czech glass from the 30's is a good idea. Much of it was imported in great quantities by the Butler Brothers Company in the 30's, before the Czech glass industry shut down because of WWII. These are some images of what you might get. Several of these have either paper labels with the name "Iris" or the semicircle Czechoslovakia mark, both associated with Kralik.
Correction: I took down the picture which showed three pieces of "Iris red" because one of then was in satin glass, which means it must probably is Ruckl.

    I don't think the modern Czech and Bohemian glass is as dramatic and attractive as these 1930s examples. Thanks for posting.

    I also wanted to ask if you are familiar with Lundberg (sp?) studio glass, and if you think it's modeled after this era of Czech glassware. Thanks.

    Lotton, Lundberg and Vandermark have followed in the steps of Bohemian Art Nouveau glass. Kralik produced some stunning glass prior to its Deco period, which was more commercial, and mostly for export (to America). If you go to http://www.Kralik-glass.com, you will get a good idea.
