I have an "Addiction" to these Kralik Shell Vases... they fascinate me so!.. 4th photo is from a reprint of the Czech Glass catalog featuring Kralik Glassworks monograph 59 from the WVMOAG with a fore note by Alfredo Villanueva Collado, Ph.D. This piece came from a very dear friend of mine and means a lot to me. and the fact that mine and one other that is owned by another friend of mine, making that two known examples of Art Deco era production of these fabulous and unique Kralik Shell's. I have been able to add 6 more Kralik Shells since this one in the post. the rest are Art Nouveau era production.

    I'm probably showing my ignorance again, but all the short, fat ones of this type that I recall seeing swirl this way, and all the tall ones I've seen swirl the other way. I wonder why? Variety?

    Nicole, you are not showing ignorance so stop that nonsense... that's what we were trying to figure out.. Variety? or? funny that i never noticed before so who's ignorant? me! lol

    I believe with the decor shown on Gary's example is a great "show and tell" of how the shape was in production for a number of years. I know as a whole, there has been team work of collectors here on CW sharing various decors and in my opinion I think Czechman's example would date to a later production from all of the other decors found here on CW.

    LLL is spot on with the difference.

    Variety is the spice of life!!! :)
