My latest vase is one perfect for the coming spring - such a cheerful shade of green! I was a little surprised at the nice size of this vase when it arrived - it stands 6-3/4" tall - larger than I was expecting. The body consists of a very interesting iridescent opal-cream glass with tan mottling that has an overall random texture to it, it is threaded with green, and also cased on the inside with green. The threading is flush with the surface of the vase - not visibly raised in any way. It has a smooth ground pontil showing white glass.
I have seen vases of this type attributed to Kralik - they can be seen with red, purple and green threading and interiors, and are sometimes marked with a straight line 'Czechoslovakia' on the bottom. To me, the font is quite different from that used by Kralik on other vases, and the decor and colors just don't feel like Kralik to me, either, so I am going to list this as Bohemian for now.
