Alfredo

I bought this 6.5" pink beauty because of the color and the green aventurine serpent. The dealer called it Kralik. However, in all my years of collecting I have never found a Kralik serpent vase. As far as I know, within Czech Jugendstil, only Loetz and Rindskopf used the serpent as decoration.

But it was once I had gotten it that I had an "EUREKA" moment. I realized I had found a match to my blue Rindskopf martelé with a green serpent (13")! The last picture shows a shape study where one of the vases is also Rindskopf blue (both are 10"). The pink shows up in other color combinations, and right now there is another shape in white with a green serpent on Internet. The vase is a great example of the bold use of contrasting colors in Czech Jugendstil.

    Great colors and Rindskopf to boot! Wish I had one! Thanks for sharing, Al!

    The dealer had two of them. i did send out an "early warning" to the GH, but no one picked up on it . . . except one who, like me, is nuts about Rindskopf!

    What about the Kralik 'Oversot' vases with green serpents?
  6. Alfredo Alfredo, 2 years ago
    Not real serpents, but rather thick threading. So far, I have never seen a Kralik serpent vase, though I have several with very thick coiled applied decoration.
