This is a stunning, and rare upright example of a Kralik Floriform vase Czechoslovakia ca. 1900 7 1/2" tall... Absolutely gorgeous Emerald green and clear crystal, with applied clear leaf / petal feet. It is in Excellent cond!.. This is the second upright example like it I have seen so far, LeahGoodwin has the other example... photo 4, shows 3 uprights in the WVMOAG monograph no. 59 Czech Glass Catalog featuring Kralik Glassworks
This piece was purchased as a buy it now on the bay a few weeks ago, had to pay to finalize the transaction, after several attempts to make contact with the seller, my emails went unanswered! and after 12 days from the day of the sale I assumed this was a scam / hacked ebay account.
So I decided to leave my much needed NEGATIVE feedback regardless of the possibility of a hacked account, so I did :)~ exactly one hour later. BINGO the dead seller had risen :o... in came the emails of BLAH BLAH BLAH and BULLCRAP! next thing I know a refund, then today this GORGEOUS Kralik Floriform arrived at my door.. I was SHOCKED to say the least...
I have since then contacted the man who actually lives about 2 hours from me, and offered to send him the payment back, but he refused, and instead suggested I make a donation to a Food Bank Community program he often donates to.. it is also in a neighboring town near me. so in the morning im sending them a check...I am a happy man! :)
