This large Kralik silberband bowl with fired and crimped, pie-top like top and polished pontil underside is cradled in a bronze patinated tin mount with Secessionist style blossoms by F. van Hauten & Sonn (Bonn, Ger.). Dimensions: 8”(D) x 5.5”(H).
F. van Hauten & Sonn (Bonn, Ger.) was a longstanding mount producer for various Bohemian pottery and glassworks, but their patinated tin mounts are most often found in association with Loetz and Kralik glass. Their mounts were featured at the Commercial and Industrial Exhibition of 1902 (Dusseldorf, Ger.) and the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis, MO.
