    I collect Bohemian glass, and have a few lovely floriform vases by Kralik. When I found this tulip floriform, I was very happy to add it to my collection. However, I am a little stumped here - I have seen a number of similar tulip form vases that have been attributed variously to Webb, Stevens & Williams, and Richardson & Son. I tend to think that the British floriforms, as shown in the last image (from vaselineglass.org and attributed to Richardson & Son) are indeed by Richardson - I know very little about British glass, though, so please correct me if you think I am wrong.

    However, my vase is a bit different from the other British examples I have seen, and I am wondering if it is perhaps a Bohemian rendition of this form? It has different coloration, tall pulled 'leaves' rather than the shorter crimped leaves, and a different rim treatment. Only the flower itself is UV reactive and the vase is 7" tall. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Thanks!

      Thanks Gary - that was my thought, too! :) I was just curious, as it seems a bit different from the others I have seen.
