For awhile I was seriously wondering if maybe these were really meyrs neffe under the the kralik family umbrella but after getting my second piece today I am thinking maybe Passau just had it right. The base glass is that same light pink color so many marquetry vases display.
I thought this new heavily art nouveau example I got was going to blow my first piece away.. but after getting it I am not quite sure which I like better. The quality of texturing and iridescence is much better on the plain piece and the gilding is pristine on that example. It's a nice clean example. But the Flowers are still quite pleasing on the other. They're both very nice in their own different way. I thought I was buying up and I'd sell my first piece. I am not quite so sure now. they are so different.
the marking on teh bottom of the new piece isn't anything. it's ink pen. I think someone got lucky and found it in a thrift store.
