the first pic is from one of Jitka's Museums. everything in that particular case was Kralik ( she tended to blur Meyers neffe and kralik as one and the same so I can't say for sure which these are)
the yellowish piece on that shelf has a near identical decoration as the two Harrach pieces I have. So I asked her about it. Are you sure they aren't Harrach? She was positive it was indeed kralik and said basically you can never go off decor alone. It's the glass that determines it. the glass is indeed very different than the harrach examples. I do not know if this is a case of glass decorators getting glass from different sources or if Kralik (meyers neffe) and Harrach just followed a common thread here.
This example is one of those things that is always at the back of my mind as a reminder.. it's complicated. It's really complicated.. even if it seems like it's not.
