I was floored when a friend gave me this vase as a gift. At first sight it looked like Kralik Silveria, but it had a marker Rindskopf shape,a tetragon (four-sided. I looked it up), the first piece I have ever seen in this decor.

However, after having handled it, I noticed a crucial difference. It is clear glass rolled in while frit with thick threading. But the frit is thinner, and the trailings are far thicker, applied irregularly. One can see through the glass when held against light. Silveria has thick frit, which makes it opaque, and the trailings do not correspond to any of their documented white frit production, which includes Confetti (white or gold tinted frit with green and red drops. it reminds me of Xmas time).

I then decided to compare with other vases and was shocked even more. My new Rindskopf "Silveria" variant was slightly taller than my other small vases in crucial ways.

Pic. 3. from left to right: 7" 13" and . . . 8"!
Pic. 4: from left to right: no pontil (the new one); polished pontil; rough pontil. It proves that Rindskopf made vases with all three kinds of bottom, and dispels the canard that one can tell the manufacturer by the pontil

I want to thanks the new and old friends have made through CW for their continued support I. We all must work to make it the important research dissemination tool it has the potential to be.
