Wilhelm Kralik, an employee of the Harrach glass works in Neuwelt, Bohemia, was granted a British patent on October 25, 1880 for a method of "ornamenting glass articles". The last photo is a scan from the book

Abridgments of Specifications
Class 52,
Furniture and Upholstery
Period-A.D. 1877-83.

London:
Patent Office Sale Branch
38, Curator Street, Chancery Lane, E.C.
1893

This volume is in the public domain, and is available as a free e-book on Google Books.

It is interesting that the patent was filed in England - Harrach produced a wide range of products for the English market in the Victorian era, so it does make sense.

    Thanks for sharing that info on the patents Records.
    Thanks too for this great vase.
    The name 'peleton' really is quite descriptive, too!
