    Three small star-throated vases - the first is a recognized Kralik decor of blue spatter and white threads on black glass. It is a decor that can be found on many known Kralik shapes. This vase stands 6" (15.3 cm). It has a six-pointed star throat with a 3" (7.1 cm) spread. The underside has a raw pontil scar and no identifying mark.

    The yellow "Tango" vase stands 7 1/4" (18.5 cm) tall. It has an eight-pointed star throat that is edged with a deep cobalt thread. The throat has a spread of 3 1/2" (9 cm). The underside has a ground pontil and a straight-line "Czechoslovakia" acid-stamped mark that seems to appear on many Kralik "Tango" items. A more tenuous identification than the first vase but a direction to look.

    Identification of the third vase is more tenuous still and really gets the "guilt by association" treatment by my level of knowledge on the subject. It stands 6 5/8" (16.8 cm) tall with an eight-pointed star spreading 2 5/8" (6.6 cm). The vase features a bottom-up spatter on transparent UV-reactive green that has a linear optic pattern. The underside has a raw pontil scar and no identifying mark.

    Except for the first vase, I have no certainty these were definitely produced by Kralik and unless some confirmation comes from a more knowledgeable source in the comments below, offer that attribution as only a possibility.

      I have a vase like the 3rd spatter one and it is acid marked "Czechoslovakia" which is a common Kralik mark. Try holding the vase up to a light in different angles as I found it hard to see at first.
