Here is an interesting piece of glass I picked up today at a local show. This 5” JIP form was produced by Kralik. The décor is called Swirls and Spots and stands 5” tall.
My understanding is they are not often seen – however you can see examples of them here:
I have never handled this décor before and I have to say I am quite taken by the quality. In fact I would say that the quality of this piece and the Crocus piece is comparable to quality of Loetz.
I am also aware the Crocus décor has been attributed to Heckert but that is a whole other conversation.

Pic #2 Kralik Swirls and Spots and Kralik Crocus - the quality of both these pieces is outstanding
Pic# 3 for good measure I am showing that this piece can comfortable stand beside Loetz. Here it is with a PG Loetz PG 1/104
