    This is a commonly found Kralik shape distinguished here by trails of green glass around its circumference. The three examples show differences in the strength of iridescence and the shade of green used in the trails.

    Diameter 12 cm./4.75 inches

      What a beauty !! The green and the pearl iridescence compliment each other very nicely. :)

      I agree that the green trails add a lot to this shape, nutsabotas, thank you :)

      Where is the evidence for these cased glass vases being Kralik, the manufacture and tooling is most unlike anything else produced by this glasshouse? I am aware that originally they were considered to be of English manufacture from Richardsons or another Stourbridge maker and over the years this has moved to Bohemia but why???
    8. sklo42 sklo42, 12 months ago
      Research, though not by me. You can find this décor, called 'Corded', in the Kralik section of the site

      If and when contradictory evidence comes to light then this site changes, which is why I consider it to be reliable. You can also ask questions there.

      I hope this helps.

      The manufacture and tooling of this piece, and the others shown by Sklo42 in pic 3 are certainly in the manner and style of Kralik production. There is nothing about them that would exclude them from being Kralik. Mold blown and a cut and polished rim on the first 2, and a tooled rim on the third example.

      The attribution to Richardson and the Stourbridge region were basically mistakes by Cyril Manley. Additional research, quite a few years ago, has shown that the production is Kralik. They have been accepted as Kralik production for well over a decade now.
    10. Northumbrian, 12 months ago
      Surely, the mold blown, cut and polished rim and even the shapes do not distinguish them as Kralik, neither does the fact that they have been accepted as such for over a decade! So where is this research that'was done a few years ago' and on what criteria was it based. Inclusion on the appears to have given the attribution some 'respectibility' but again without evidence. It is the usual case of 'let's dump it in the Kralik box' until we know better. Strange, when we had over 2000 glass houses manufacturing!

      Just curious.... You seem to have a pretty strong opinion on the subject..... Who do you believe made them?
