I enjoy collecting Kralik from the later period (1930-38). One of the techniques that stands out for me is the Stripe Decor. There are many Combinations (variations) to the Stripe decor: Diamond powder decor with stripe, Powder decor with stripe, Confetti decor with stripe and tango with stripe.
These example are just the "stripe" look- they seem same but actually have three different approaches in production.
1. Interior gold finish- with white base color - then oxidized mahogany - then stripe application - with iron oxide finish
2. Green base color - then with interior color - then green casing color - then stripe application - then Iris (flash) finish
3. Red base color - then black stripe application - then Iris finish
4. Same as #2 in blue
