    Here is a 7" vase that is a bit of a mystery. It has a custard cased base color (in a color different shade from Kralik- more opaque). It is then coated with a light shade of semi-opaque green that has small amounts of adventurine. The top is ground like many late period Czechoslovakian pieces. The pattern resembles the Giraffe type from Kralik. Please comment if you recognize the signature or link me to any piece with that signature.

    Thank you, Jericho

      It reminded me of this French mark on an eggshell vase but I see it is completely different.

      I'm afraid there are a lot of companies that have this "cracked earth" design. The green Kralik you linked is very different starting with the base color, thickness of glass, green color, transcluscency of pattern, adventurine in this one, size of crackle, flash finish, etc... They might both be Kralik though...

      A decor being under a coat of "clear glossy" glass is pretty meaningless in Czech glass. A clear outer casing is likely one of the the most common production techniques, and likely found from every Czech manufacturer of the period that used casing as a production technique.... which would most likely be almost every single one, known and unknown..... if not every single one.....
