    The clear body is ribbed, the leaves have been crimped in a way that represents veins and the top of the handle is also in leaf form.

    The seller said they'd been in her family for at least sixty five years. However they would have been produced another forty or fifty years before that. Sometimes it's sobering to reflect on just how old some of the glass we collect really is.

    Kralik continued to make ribbed vases with leaf forms added to the rim up to the Art Deco period, when they made them in vivid Tango colours with cobalt blue leaves. See the link below.

      Lovely. Love the green.

      Green seems to be a winner with you too, NevadaBlades.

      These are beautiful, sklo. The petals are quite unusual - fern fronds? I completely agree with what you said about age - it is really something to think about, isn't? Something so delicate survived for so long, and is still being sought after and appreciated today...

      Thank you so much Michelle......perhaps I should have called them foliate vases! Though they look delicate they're actually quite solid. They have to be to survive.

      They sat for years inside glassed cabinets. Their kids never touched them. So beautiful - now you have them and share them with us!

      Whenever I see glass like this I am awed by the Czechs and Kralik in particular. They made so many different styles of glass, all executed beautifully.
      These are incredibly appealing. The finely ribbed body offset by the green leaves - vertical to horizontal. Then the handles. Wow.
      Wow to your photos too Peggy.

      I think you are right, valentino, luckily for those of us who love anything antique or vintage! Equally some collectors are helped by that long gone habit of setting things aside 'for best' and hardly using them at all!

      You are a tonic, Karen! How do you find such lovely things to say?

      Kralik did indeed make innumerable décors and their high end production was second to none. Of course I don't have any of their high end stuff :)

      Wow, you have some fabulous pieces of glass - Thank-you for sharing!
    14. Rick55 Rick55, 4 years ago
      I love these Peggy! I particularly love the contrast of the green against the clear glass... beautiful !
    15. sklo42 sklo42, 4 years ago
      courtenayantiques, it's me who should thank you for a lovely compliment!
    16. sklo42 sklo42, 4 years ago
