Pic 1. Kralik Helios: citron colored glass, non UV reactive, covered with peach swirls. Small Poshinger vase, non-UV reactive, opaque gray/white glass covered with peach swirls, silver overlay and glass cabochons. And third, the vase under scrutiny.

Pic. 2: the polished pontils on all three vases.

Pic. 3; the Helios pontil, closeup.

Pic. 4: the Poshinger pontil, closeup.

I would eliminate Poshinger first. The other two are much closer in color.
So, it's between Kralik and Rindskopf. Please look at both postings and tell me what you think. And remember, PK is still in this glass primary!

Or all three vases were made by ONE manufacturer and the PM has done it again. Maybe they are all Zelenko Heckert . . . .

    Oooooo...Al, you've been hiding that overlay/cabochon piece from my lusting eyes! Want, want, want. I wouldn't be too surprised if they were all from the same glassworks.

    I still think Kralik. I was really surprised to learn that Helios is non-UV reactive! Since both Helios and the Poschinger Buchenau are non-UV reactive, we really have to also consider PK, who used a LOT of uranium... I just wish we could find another decor on that shape... (tri-fold top with a flat bottom)

    Rindskopf: The vase has a Rinskopf shape, whilst similar to Kralik forms the Rindskopf body is more concave ('waisted') in outline and the angle to base is 'sharper' - less rounded. May also be found in 'oilspot' decor. Your vase decor is interesting and I will search my records further but I do not recollect seeing it before.
