For years I thought this vase was a décor by Kralik called Silberband, but apparently research discovered in 2014 has clouded the issue and some similar pieces are now attributed to Fritz Heckert as a décor called Changeant. For now, I will stick with Kralik, especially after the responses below, but will add Aquagold as a definite possibility... This nice little example is about 4" tall and 3" in diameter. It has a ground and polished rim, and no pontil mark on the base. There are two dimples on opposite sides of the vase. The green base glass has a randomly swirled band of opalescent glass pulled through. There is an overall metallic iridescence. There are no markings - c. pre WWI.
