Loetz was not the only company outside of France to capitalize on the high demand for cameo glass during the 1920s. Kralik got into the act, also, producing some cameo under its own name, signed "Kralik" or sometimes "de Kralik". They also produced glass for other customers with names made to order - names like "Soleil", "Beauté", and in this case, "D'Aurys". Three different colors of glass were used on this vase, which is rather large in size - 12" high and about 5" wide. It isn't as spectacular as an original Gallé, but it definitely has its place in a discussion about the mass market for cameo glass in the 1920s.

    Warren nice find and thanks for posting this. I know I've read of these AKA signatures on Kralik cameo glass, but not sure if I've seen one come up in the wild (I should, I usually keep an eye on came o glass as I collect it). I would say the work appears to be a bit better quality then 98% of the Richard cameo glass we see.
