The second part of my parcel from the US.... A really cool pair of Kralik vases!
They look to be blown from jet black glass but! is the deepest darkest amethyst glass with a blue spatter glass that just has a hint of mauve to it, darker a than the photo shows, finished off with a whitest of white threads.. that jump!
They look almost identical but with further inspection they are very! different... one is terribly tactile and looks and feels like the spatter has been chucked at it.... the base feels like a pebble beach, would look and the thread looks like it has been placed all over it and then pulled tight most noticeable on the rim of the base... I just love this one!.....where as the other one is mostly smooth all over and the thread feels painted on... effortlessly running smoothly over and under it...
It has a straight Czechoslovakia mark on the base of only the one... that I can! find which I have tried to show.
A little carried away with the discretion...sorry! Alfredo I know!!.... an emotional description! but I do just love them....:-)
