Here are a few tango or spatter glass fan vases likely manufactured by Antonin Rückl & Sons, Vcelnicka. This decor of the first one is cherry red with green and black spatter or vari-colored mottled base. It measures 7" tall and 8-3/4" wide. Bottom is unmarked and has a nicely polished pontil.
This fan vase shape (or similar) is illustrated in the Butler Brothers Feb 1930 Catalog. Description reads "Popular Fan Shape, 3 styles, 7 in., spread 8-3/4, cased glass, green, canary, and cherry red vari-colored mottled base. 1/4 dozen in pkg. Doz $7.25"
This spatter glass decor can be found on a documented Ruckl vase shape as follows:
The vase in the following link has this same cherry red with black and green spatter decor:
That vase shape is identified as Ruckl here:
There are other shapes with this decor such as this covered jar:
Photo 3 show this same fan vase shape in the ca 1931 Ruckl Opalrosa Shimmy Pfau Decor, as documented in Truitt Collectible Bohemian Glass II, page 75.
Photo 4 shows the same fan vase shape in the ca 1931 Ruckl Opalblue Shimmy Pfau Decor, as documented in Truitt Collectible Bohemian Glass II, page 75.
This fan vase shape is found with a variety of marks. One of the marks found on this shape is the "Kralik" semicircle mark. The meaning of the semi-circle or arched Kralik mark is documented on pages 122-123, Collectible Bohemian Glass Vol. II, by Robert and Deborah Truitt. It states that only 60% to 70% of glassware with the arched "Kralik" mark is actually Kralik.
