    Here is a later production Kralik vase around 1930’s. It has a puffy cloud confetti base and exposed powders baked on the furnace. The powders contain a metalic texture to the surface of the glass. The flash iridescence adds to the luster. If you look at the close up you will see the granules. There is of special interest a label that I’m thinking says FLUX; Only the F and U are for sure. A good glass contact wrote me: FLUX might make sense. Latin for river, and the label shows a cormorant or heron...I do see a long-neck bird clearly

    Labels are tricky because they may be from the maker or from a wholesaler or retailer. Lava pieces can be rare and hard to identify. Now to find another sticker...

    This piece is a miracle piece - all those who helped know I am gratefull for the safe delivery. It was found in south the America and went through two dealers, shipping and stuck in customs (twice) for eight months,... back to the dealer, then a relative of a broker and finally the broker who shipped this to me, one year and four months! I’m grateful.
    A Lava with a label! I got the chills like the first time I laid eyes on the Iris sticker.

      LUX was Light in Latin.
