    This lovely Czech vase isn't in a typical Tango decor - it feels much more delicate to me due to the color and decoration, but does have a definite Tango vibe, too. It is 6" tall x 4 5/8" at its widest. I just love the perfectly placed little hand painted pale orange polka dots (with a very fine gold ring around each one) against the translucent white, and can't wait to fill it with narcissus and daffodils from the garden as they come into bloom. I do not recognize the stamp on the bottom, so do not feel this is Kralik, but most probably another maker. (Any ideas?) Thanks!
    UPDATE: Today I had this vase in the kitchen, under fluorescent lights, and I thought it looked rather greenish and sort of glow-y....I got out my black light, and this vase lit up a brilliant milky green! I had no idea it was UV reactive. This really is a gorgeous vase, and has some very unique characteristics to it!

      dosn't the round "czecho slovakia" stamp belong to kralik? some expert should confirm...
    2. Michelleb007 Michelleb007, 8 years ago
      austrohungaro, to my knowledge, confirmed Kralik stamps are either straight across, or semi-circular, without a circle around them. (for examples, see under Wilhelm Kralik Sohn).

      Thanks mchelle. As you see I am not an expert in Bohemian glass :( It's far too complicated for me :)
    4. Michelleb007 Michelleb007, 8 years ago
      austrohungaro, I don't consider myself an expert in the least - I just do a little reading here and there, and there are many good websites that help, too. And, just buy what you love! :)

      Snap, very cool. It doesn't look like it would glow at all, i bet you were surprised
    6. Michelleb007 Michelleb007, 8 years ago
      Thanks, Vintagefran - I sure was! :)
    7. Michelleb007 Michelleb007, 8 years ago
      Jay, sure thing! I now keep a little black light 'flashlight' on my desk to check out my new glass, too! :)

      very nice !!! so what do you think about this one in terms?
    9. Michelleb007 Michelleb007, 8 years ago
      Sean, thank you! I think the other two could be by the same maker, based on the mark and their shapes - great to know! (Does yours glow under black light too?)
    10. SEAN68 SEAN68, 8 years ago
      I believe it does , your welcome Michelle:) yes great to know:)
