When I first saw this vase, I could easily understand the seller's description stating that it dated from the 1960's. It has a crazy fused glass flower in orange tones that would be perfect for the period. But, as a collector, I also recognized it as being an old Bohemian vase dating to about 1900 or so.
Some vases with very similar applied flowers have been attributed as having being made by Pallme Konig, and to me, the vase shapes themselves exhibit very organic forms. On CW in the past, some vases with these types of flowers have also been attributed to Kralik. I personally believe that this particular example is also by Kralik, based on the geometric shape of the vase, and also on the body color. (I have several other Kralik vases that are in exactly this shade of yellowish-green.) But whoever you think actually made this vase, I hope you enjoy it - the colors are a lot of fun!
