Pic. 1: I just acquired this vase in trade, after its previous owner had posted it. 9" tall, perfectly polished pontil; clear glass with red and green frit streaks and overall golden iridescence accentuated by gold mica flecks. When I held it, I was stunned: it looked like burnished gold.
Pic. 2. It so happens I have a pair of confetti vases where the same gold iridescence is applied over the green and red drops covering the white frit.
Pics. 3,4: The particular color combination is the same for both vases, except that in the new one it is applied directly on the clear glass and the colored frit, no white frit layer.
Therefore, I venture to identify it as yet another newly discovered Kralik Jugendstil decor. This is Kralik at its very best!
