    German-produced WMF Myra Kristall always fascinates me, because it has such depth of color and iridescence. Part of the reason is the amount of labor that goes into making it. Each piece of Myra Kristall takes four work days to make. The glass starts out as a colorless blank and is further refined by heating, staining, heating some more, final shaping, and heating again in a low oxygen fire... it's all very technical, but what a result!

    This one has a rim that is so delicate that I'm afraid to breathe on it! The crackled rims are easily chipped, so finding one intact is always a very good thing. When they are properly identified (vs being sold as Loetz or Tiffany), they can be had for quite reasonable prices. My recommendation is that if you find one at a decent price and in undamaged condition - pick it up!

      Thanks Warren! I had no idea how they were made - or that they were so fragile. What a lovely piece of glass!

      Great post Bohemianglassandmore. Thank you. I recently got a Myra plate, never come across them before & was expecting it to be quite chunky, boy was i surprised! Its so thin & weighs next to nothing, feels so fragile i don't want to touch it. I'm amazed it made it through the post at all. It is chipped sadly, but i got it cheap and loved the pictures of it. This is superb.

      Here's my (sadly,damaged) plate. Like your vase it has the same frilly decoration i love around the edges and is very thin.
      You wouldn't know any more than I've been able to find out about it would you?

      It has such beauty in the colours.
