This is my 18th shell example on CW and the smallest Kralik shell vase I have ever found. Definitely Czech from the Art Deco era. The decor on the shell is a very colourful spatter decor. I can feel the chips of glass on the exterior, as it's not cased with a layer of crystal on the exterior.
Gary, aka Czechman has a larger spatter shell. My son, Joshua has always been very fond of it. So this shell will be going to Joshua provided he brings home good grades on his first report card when the new school year begins.
6-3/8" tall with a 1-7/8" diameter rim. Base is 3" diameter.
