Kralik executed some fantastic pieces that are rarely seen. They show excellent taste and technique. The reason I am drawn to these pieces is because they are fire polished and hand-worked but most of all they contain cased decor. This means rather than a surface decor (like Loetz and many other earlier companies) each piece is internally decorated first then hand worked with repeated trips to the furnace.
1, Giraffe pattern (flashed) with elephant foot shape
2, Star pattern (flashed) with oceanic shape on foot
3, Diamond pattern (flashed) on umbrella shaped vase with camel foot
4, Murine and confetti (flashed) with trumpet vase on sphere and foot
