Once I wrote a preface for a mysterious anonymous catalog at the West Virginia Museum of American Glass, which I was helping identify. I was dumbfounded when I found page after page of vases already identified in Truitt 1 as Kralik being sold through Hosch. And then, I found some of the very same pieces in the BB 1900 catalog. This elegant flower is one of my favorites.

    Hi Alfredo:
    You probably know all about the Blaschka Flowers, right? Here's Flickr page with photos of lots of them.

    Here's a page for the museum where they are housed (hardly any photos, though).

    Your Show & Tell makes me wonder if this was a late-19th/early-20th century trend?

    Really cool stuff, thanks for sharing!

    I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT BLASHKA FLOWERS. FLOWERS HAVE BEEN MADE FOR A LONG TIME. THESE ARE NOT IT. THEY ARE DOCUMENTED TO DEATH. BUT THANKS FOR THE TIP!
