This is one of my favorite Loetz/Kralik/etc. pieces. It was given to me by my wife, Mary Ann, many years ago as a birthday present. It is just 5 inches tall. The base color is deep amethyst. It has an oval "CZECHO SLOVAKIA" mark (very faint), but I'm not sure it's the one attributed to Loetz. Not sure what the small specks in the gold iridized pattern are - it doesn't seem to me to be mica, but I may well be wrong. Not sure whether in the end, this vase is Loetz or Kralik or another maker and thus I welcome your thoughts.
