I'd always assumed these were British made Victorian Art Glass, but based on information garnered here, I now believe they are Kralik.

Any confirmation on this attribution is appreciated.

    Those look British and I love the Teal color on the Right!

    Well, surprise! I know the year they arrived in the country. They appear in a Butler Brothers catalog from 1900! Or at least, the JIP does, and by the flower you can identify the other. I have a similar JIP in crystal crackle with green ruffle and the same flower.

    Did Butler Brothers strickly buy from Kralik?

  4. Deanteaks Deanteaks, 3 years ago
    very nice pieces :) are they hand blown too?
  5. scottvez scottvez, 3 years ago
    Yes-- they are.

    Take a look at Alfredo's listings on here. He is the Kralik guy on the forum and can probably help you with your glass.

    Just wondering how you arrived at the Kralik conclusion. These pink and white flowers are also found on glass that is much more typically English than Bohemian
  7. scottvez scottvez, 3 years ago
    As Alfredo states in post #2, the JIP is in a Butler Brothers catalog from 1900. The flower in the other vase is typical Bohemian.

    Yes but did Butler Bros only import from Kralik?
  9. scottvez scottvez, 3 years ago
    I asked the same question a while back and BELIEVE the answer was yes.

    I have many art glass pieces. Most are from the UK. I had several of these pieces, that I now know are Kralik in my grouping. Years ago, I had noticed differences. The flowers have a different look. The pontils on most are rough and not polished and the base colors are different. After input from Alfredo and looking at a web site with many Kralik pieces, the ability to identify Kralik has become easier.

    I am by no means an expert-- I'd recommend that you direct specific questions to Alfredo. He is the resident Kralik man on CW and readily answers questions.

    If you have a question about something in your collection, pls post for feedback.

    Thanks for looking lisa.

    Sorry for the late reply jay-- thanks for looking and commenting. I wouldn't think that the leaf side would differentiate makers.

    Could be that it is a right handed thing. It would be easier to apply to the right of the flower for a right handed artisan. Maybe it was being done this way to sell as a pair (with a mirror appearance for mantle display). I am just speculating-- someone else may be able to provide a better answer.
