(510 items)

I have posted several items from the Kralik Hosch catalog in the collection of the West Virginia Museum of American Glass. Though it has no date, one can trace the items featured to the very early 1900's, as corroborated by documented Hosch catalog pages in Truitt I.

This time, a basket found in Arkansas. Frosted white glass with a realistic 7" pink rose bloom on a frosted green stem. 10" tall, 6" wide at the top. Basket, handle, bloom and feet are all applied separately. Catalog n. C127. It has, however, lost a petal, which has been crudely and unsuccessfully "repaired" (last photo).

Once more one must face the painful choice between historical value and market value. I choose the first. I have observed countless museum pieces that are literally glued back together (a certain Tiffany Lava at the Met is a case in point). To find these pieces in America is quite rare; I have only seen a couple of examples at the Kralik Museum in Lenora. A superb interpretation of the floral, organic motif in Czech Jugendstil glass.

    Great find! I have not seen this example before! I agree that having a broken example is better than no example at all!

    I can never get enough of this kind of thing- period catalog illustration (or line drawing) next to a real example. Wonderful!
