1. A NEW PIECE. CLEAR GLASS WITH RED AND SLATE BUE SPATTER, AND BLUE HANDLES. UNMARKED. NO PONTIL. 5.5" TO THE TOP OF HANDLE. TWO FEATURES MADE ME MAKE A BEE LINE: THE HANDLES AND THE DOUBLE RING AT THE BOTTOM.

2. BOTTOM PICTURE.

3. A COMPANION PIECE, EXHIBITING A DOUBLE RINGED FOOT AND THREE RINGS IN THE MIDDLE. WHAT I CALL "MOSAIC" OR "NAIL POLISH" SPATTER. UNMARKED, 9". I ALSO HAVE A DOME, ALMOST FLAME SHADE, IN THE SAME COLORS.

4. AND THEN, ANOTHER FAMILY OF RINGED PIECES. THE SMALL PERFUME, ONE SINGLE BOTTOM RING. THE TALL PERFUME, THREE BOTTOM RINGS. THE TALL DOUBLE-HANDLED, THREE BOTTOM RINGS.

IT SHOULD BE OBVIOUS BY NOW THAT THERE WAS A VAST AND VARIED PRODUCTION OF VASES, EITHER VARIEGATED OR TANGO, SPORTING BLUE HANDLES, RIMS AND ASSORTED ATTACHMENTS, AND AS SUCH THEY APPEAR IN THE BB DECO CATALOGS. THEY MOST PROBABLY CAME AS PART OF LARGER ASSORTMENTS WHICH OFFERED VARIATIONS IN SHAPES AND DECORS.

AS USUAL, I WELCOME COLLABORATIONS FROM ANY AND ALL WHO MIGHT HAVE PIECES WITH SIMILAR CHARACTER-ISTICS.

WE DO KNOW THAT:
1. THEY WERE MADE IN CZECHOSLOVAKIA.
2. THEY ENTERED THE USA DURING THE LATE 20'S AND 30'S.

    FOLKS I JUST FOUND A RINGED VASE WITH THE RECOGNIZABLE KRALIK
    BAMBUS/FLAME DECOR ON CW. I THINK IT SOLVES THE RINGED PIECES MYSTERY.
