This Kralik Vase has a very interesting technique. It appears to be a kind of cameo technique; cut-back with an acid.
The interior layer has array of powders floating in a white base. The whole piece appears to be coated with an enamel powder that is baked on in the furnace..... I'm a little bit guessing here but I believe a stencil or wax pattern is place over the piece and acid is sprayed on (in a cold process) to eat away at some of the surface. This technique exposes the pattern of a peach and leaves. I received this one from a dealer in Argentina so it will never make a profit but it is a cool mystery piece with an unquestionable Kralik shape
