Part of the joy of collecting glass for me is as much tactile as it is visual... and there are almost as many textures in art glass as there are colors. Kralik's glassblowers loved to push the envelope in terms of both. Here is a classic shape with a snakeskin texture and heavy iridescence that looks like it could withstand a bullet. It's as much fun to handle as it is to look at.
