I saw this lamp, a few weeks ago, simply described as Czech. Ok there must be a stamp on it?? But "Tchechoslovaquie" is common, for the French market.
I got to wondering, as some of the colours are typically Kralik, sort of in the style of "Bambus", and I have read much about their "Murano" canes et caetera.....
The lamp arrived, and beautifully made. the canes are marvered in, on a spiral from base to fitting.
The surprise came, when, not having mentioned a makers label, I turned this over, to find an intact, circa 1925-34, S Reich, Krasno, label.
I know now it is not Kralik, but the use of canes came as a surprise, certainly from a much under-rated and under-recorded company.
But surely useful to have an identifiable lamp, all the same.
