    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.

      Very interesting find. Labeled and identified Krasno pieces are few and far between.

      Also an interesting mark. A slightly inverted curve from accepted Kralik marks, but utilizing the same open O style of font associated wit the arched Kralik mark. I do not know that I have ever seen this mark before.

      May I use your pics for my website Marcus?

      Either way, thanks for posting this. Craig

      Of course, Craig, no problem.

      I am hoping to get a look at another lamp, in a friend's collection, specifically for the accented E. Under normal French spelling conventions, capital letters do not carry accents.

      Lamp-bases, are not well documented, for many Czech producers, and tho' Rapotinské Sklo still exists, like S Reich, little is known of their interwar production.
