I just returned from a great trip to Passau Germany, the Bohemian Forest in the Czech Republic and Vienna. I saw so much glass in museums and galleries that my phone nearly crashed! Here is the only piece I purchased. It was marked 1920 Bohemian vase and was selling for about half of what I think it is worth... so needles to say I looked for cracks or glue trailing. I have seen many vertical stripe pieces (Ausf 157) but never this shape. It measures an astounding 14" (35"cm) tall in lavender base color with red vertical stripes and black foot and handles (there goes the theory that tango has to be bi-colored).
I wonder If the foot and handles made the appraiser think it was was a Kralik tango or some other competitor?
NOTE: The handle ends match perfectly with the kind of work seen on three handle pieces.
