    With the exception of the small pot, featured before this, all of todays glass is damaged in some way, but great finds non the less (& cheap because of it:)
    I love this and it's another 1st for me, my first frit vase.
    Missing a 'tadpole' and with some quite large chips on the rim, it still displays well.
    I've seen this exact same decor in different shapes, always described as Kralik.
    The bulbous shape is popular in Art Nouveau vases, like this clear iridescent 'tadpole' vase, also thought to be a Kralik.

      Beautiful. You might find an artist somewhere who is able to repair it ?.

      Thank you for the lovely comments everyone. I don't mind a bit of damage, if the glass is nice. As you say Ivonne, it's difficult to find 100 year or so old glass without any. With this, turn the broken tadpole toward the wall & it almost looks perfect :)
