    It's the combination of control and spontaneity that attracts me to "spatter" glass. This mix of blue, white, and burgundy on a clear ground is enhanced with an external iridescent flashing.

    Vase stands 7" (17.7 cm) tall and the underside is marked with arched acid-stamped mark attributed to Kralik.

      do you notice why yhis id different to most Spatter?
      It's been blown in clear glass...is this true Spatter....did the broom sweep get down on the floor of the workshop and pick ut those blues and browns? Or were they taken from a colour thrown in from the storage tubs...who knows. Us collectors f it seem to love it for what ever reason. Even if the legend is greater than truth...

      Nice item... I tend to lean to British makers rather than Czech of this type unless you feel any different? And I think Harrach did this style and of course the great Tiffany made similar in reds and yellows but somehow I fear yours isnt Tiffany lol...but its lovely...

      Thanks to everyone for the love.
      AnneLanders - There may not be 100% certainty about it but I think the mark on this piece is a pretty good indicator that this piece was made in what was then Czechoslovakia between 1919 and 1939 by the Wilhelm Kralik company - unfortunately not Tiffany.
      As far as the spatter/end-of-day stories go, my thinking is that most of the glass pieces that get called "end-of-day" were actually carefully controlled lines of regular production. It also wouldn't surprise me if spontaneous spatter decors appeared at the end of production runs.

      Kralik did lots of spatters and other decors on clear grounds. The mirrored finish is definitely a pointer. The mark looks right. Others will be able to tell you about the shape as they have built up massive shape libraries.

      I agree too that "end of day" isn't really an apt name for this sort of glass, confetti or spatter seeming more apt, but everyone knows what the three terms mean. The truest "end of day" work was the glass flower "dumps".
      There is more skill involved in most spatters than simply knocking a few out at the end of the day, it would seem to me as well.

      Very cool shape
