Essentially I bought this bowl for it's 'cut out' handles. To me they looked very 'Kraliky', as Ian might say. However the truth is I do not know the maker. Correction......this bowl appears on www.kralik-glass.com under the décor Kralik Punched.
The outer surface is a small type of martelé with low relief. It looks as if the 'ridges' of the martelé texture have been smoothed and flattened. Not at all like the martelé on known Kralik pieces that I have. On the other hand the iridescence is astonishing.
