This Czech Art Deco Era perfume bottle just arrived. Since there is no stopper it is a vase for now. It measures 5-7/8 inches tall with a 1-1/4 inch diameter cut rim. The rim edge is flat with a very small bevel at the exterior rim edge while the inner rim edge is left crisp with no bevel. The bottom measures 2 inches in diameter as does the widest area towards the top. It has no pontil and is slightly indented on the bottom from manufacture. Bottom has a gold colored Royal Art Glass sticker label. It was purchased in Brooklyn, New York

Made of double cased glass with glossy clear interior and exterior layers. Innermost color layer is red splotchy or streaked coloring. This layer has some orange coloring and a few transparent areas between the colored vertical stripes. Yellow and black lines, streaks, or peloton style threads decorate the vase further over the red coloring. There are also a few orange colored streaks and spots.

I'm convinced that this decor is Ruckl, but have seen it attributed to Kralik. Royal Art Glass Co. was an importer of wares with a "factory" located at 243 Canal Street, New York, NY, USA. They imported a variety of products from multiple manufacturers so unfortunately their label does not help with an id. 4th Picture above shows an original 1925 Invoice from the company. The red printing reads "Office and Sample Room, 5-9 W. Union Square, N.Y."

243 Canal Street is an six story building in Manhattan / Little Italy. Construction of the building was completed in 1915. It's an office building with BOCA use group M. If it was an actual factory it would have been classified as use group F. It was likely more of an assembly or packaging plant and not actually a factory manufacturing products from raw materials.

*Last vase above shows this shape in orange with a reddish brown colored streaked decor. Although the decor is similar to the red vase there are some differences to show variations in production. This example was added in case it helps anyone with an attribution. *

I would love hearing from anyone who has additional ideals on the manufacturer. Thank you!

    What great shape style & colours it would be a shame to through away because of a broken stopper.

    that label is the Royal art glass label seen on many Welz pieces. I believe this piece could be Ruckl, Kralik or welz- to me that has not been proved... the decor I call "Cased Pelleton" (not to be confused with other pelleton types). it belongs in a catagory of confetti applications (broken rod chips sometimes also with glass chips too). look for my next post to have a few- feel free to disagree but that's my two cents...

    This link is to a 1913 Royal Art Glass sales ad printed in the Lighting Journal Advertiser.
    http://books.google.com/books?id=WZPmAAAAMAAJ&pg=PA332&lpg=PA332#v=onepage&q&f=false

    I've also added a 1925 Invoice from Royal Art Glass in the photos above.

    Can anyone provide an address, invoice, or similar documentation for the Royal Art Glass, Czechoslovakian/German Manufacturer attributed in the Glasmarken Lexicon?

    I must also add that to my knowledge this decor has never been attributed to Welz and therefore was not confirmed as Welz when found with a Royal Art Glass label.

    Here's this decor on another "Kralik" shape.
