A circa 1900s hand-enameled uranium glass vase by Karl Pohl (Novy Bor) rendered in the style of Mucha. Strangely, the bottom is faintly marked "Déposé, France," but this may represent a mark made after production then imported to France. It would make some sense that Mucha-inspired pieces would have the greatest market in France at the time, so maybe Karl Pohl had some sort of production agreement with a French retailer for these Mucha-type pieces? Dimensions: 8.5”(H) x 2" (W) at base; 3”(W) at lip.
A similar vase with the same form, but different Mucha-like maiden design can be found in "Collectible Bohemian Glass 1880-1940", by Robert and Deborah Truitt (see page 114, plate 2).
Many thanks to Mike Moir and Warren Galle for the attribution assistance!
