    I went to bed thinking I would not get this with my snipe and was extremely surprised that with all the watchers there were, only a couple of bids....so! I am really pleased to show you this fabulous!!....three mouthed vase in the beautiful colours of the rainbow...which I can confirm, as I look out my window at the moment at the most wonderful rainbow..:-)

    The blue applied handle and rim complement it so well and it it stands a good height of.. 9.1/2 inches tall.

    As I have thought it best not to have it sent till after the Christmas rush...I would just like to say that the link was given to me by a CW friend.... and these photos have been very kindly supplied by another lovely CW friend and without both their help would not have been able to bid on it..

      Looks like a gorgeous rainbow. I've never seen such pretty colors together in glass. :)
      I drove and drove one time trying to find the end of a rainbow ( pot of gold) but I couldn't get to it. ;(.
      This is very unique and lovely!

      Thank you OneGoodFind..it really is I am pleased you like it too!...:-)

      I don't think it's Kralik, it's Loetz. In the Museum Sumavy in Kasperske Hory, a vase with a similar decoration is presented as Loetz from the 1920s.
    34. inky inky, 1 year ago
      Larksel, thank you so much...I’ve always had my doubts but the consensus was it was by Kralik..much appreciated!..
    35. welzebub, 1 year ago
      Not to be a naysayer, but I must do what I must do... ???? I do not believe this to be Loetz production. I have handled it personally, as I took these photos, and the quality of the piece, although good, is not what I would expect from Loetz.

      Another issue is that this very distinctive shape of pitcher is shown in a Butler Brothers ad from 1929, and I am unaware of there being anything in the way of supporting evidence that Butler Brothers sold Loetz production. It is also quite obvious that the other pieces in the ad image are also not Loetz production

      The decor may bear a resemblance to a Loetz decor, but I do not believe it is their production. I was originally in the Kralik camp on this one, based on claims by another researcher, but I am no longer in agreement with that. Although I am not sure who did make it, the piece was produced with the use of a gadget. That is evidenced by the fact that the base has no pontil mark, yet the rim is hot finished with an applied blue detail. This technique is done using snap tools or "gadgets", and neither Loetz nor Kralik are known to have produced glass that way.... At least that I am aware of. As always, I would certainly be open to evidence that shows otherwise.

      Also, since it is apparent from comments in the forum that at least one individual does not understand the concept I stated above, it is BOTH the presence of a “fire polished rim” AND “the absence of a pontil mark” that are indicators of a production technique using “gadgets” that Kralik is not known to have used. To the best of my knowledge, Loetz did not either. I hope that clears up the misunderstanding.

      Here is a link to the Butler ad:

      http://www.kralik-glass.com/CW/ButlerJuly1929.jpg
      Although Loetz and others made rainbow glass, my general impression is that the transitional edges from one color to another are more gentle than seen here in this example, and not as stark as we see here.

      I would though, be very interested in seeing an image of the piece that Larksel is referring to, as there is always the possibility that a Loetz attribution on that example is incorrect…. Not saying it is….. just suggesting it is a possibility.

      All of that being said, I have always loved this piece of glass, as it is very unique, and the only one I have ever seen.

      Inky, send me your email address so I can send you a photo from the Museum. info@bohemianglass.org
    37. larksel larksel, 1 year ago
      I have to correct my post: I think it's not Kralik, it could be Loetz.
    38. welzebub, 1 year ago
      I have now seen the image from the museum that Larksel is referring to. Unfortunately, it is not well lit, so an accurate comparison can not really be done. I agree that the two decors appear similar, but we know that there are decors by separate houses that appear to be similar, but are not the same.

      Although they appear similar, I am reasonably confident that Inky's example of the pitcher is a shape that was not produced by Loetz. Time may prove that wrong. I am also of the opinion that currently available information does not really allow for an accurate attribution.

      Here is a link to the image of the cabinet in the Museum Sumavy in Kasperske Hory. Larksel also informed me that vase in question in the case is "PPN III-3611 circa 1927".

      The comparison of two photos is interesting. Unfortunately my photo is bad. Still, I think the same glassworks did it.
