This will be a two-part post. First, the vase itself. Vaseline glass (pic. 4) covered in peach swirls (pic. 2) and showing a pattern of ink-etched gold tendrils--glowing violent violet under a UV--both at the top and the bottom (pic. 3). Polished pontil showing and opalescent yellowish background. 8.5" tall; 4 7/8 wide bottom; 3" wide at the mouth.

I had classified it as Rindskopf Persica gold variation because of the three-sided mouth. However, the three sided top was also used by Kralik, Poshinger and Pallme König. The opalescent background and peach swirls are also Kralik--its Helios line-- and Poshinger, as per the Passau Museum Catalog. The discussion on it among Glasshounds has centered on its elusive characteristics, which seem to belong to too many glasshouses

Who is the maker of this glass?

It so happens that I do have a Kralik Helios and Poshinger peach.
So I decided to make a side-by side comparison, and let you, my readers, submit their opinions.
