So I have seen Jagsrock and Jericho's posts with examples of these large Kralik vases and drooled with envy. I have never come across these pieces on auction sites here in Europe; until last week. When I spotted this with the following description - I've translated "vintage orange vase of multi layer glass." So at £23 I just had to get the first bid in and just wait and watch for 7 days..... 6 days later and 1 day to go and I'm the only watcher and the only bidder, I couldn't believe it. 2 hours to go and there's another watcher.....damn! 3 seconds to go and I threw in my max bid (I'm not saying what that was). In the blink of an eye it was MINE!!! Yaay!!! No other bids so it was mine for a song.
Described in his own words as the 'Punch Bag Vase' by Jericho, it is a huge 14" (36cm) tall and almost 8" wide and the webbing is quite complex, not like other more simple Kralik webbed pieces.
It's by far the biggest piece of Kralik in my collection - I'm just loving this one - it's big enough to hug!
