I always assumed this was Kralik, but seeing an earlier post by Czechman identified this as a Ruckl shimmy. it certainly appears the same, but has the what looks like the Kralik mark (2). I would appreciate any thoughts. Thanks

    Thanks. I thought so too, but good to have backup.

    Ruckl is generally end-of-day pulls in a satin finish, but the extent of their glass is still evolving. This piece is most likely Kralik because of the shape, colors and decor- they are seen on many other pieces that are commonly called Kralik.

    Mine, which I bought as Ruckl, has the same shape, but the pulls are not rounded up, like in this example, and it is unmarked. There is evidence Kralik was sold though BB catalogs. So was Ruckl and Welz (and maybe even Deco Harrach). I go with generic decors, common to all Czech Deco export.

    The vase is 4 inches tall, just under 6 inches at the widest point and the opening is just under 3 3/4 inches across. Hope this helps.
