    Not sure if it's the right term but "Martele" (hammered) Iridescent ruffled hat vase , 5" tall with 8" wide ruffled rim and a 4" round base with smoothed pontil mark ; no signatures that I could see . Not very colorful but catches the light and has a nice sheen to it , a Kralik vase perhaps ; Bohemian early 1900's ?

      It is Kralik, there are several decors in this shape. They made the most glass items with this type of glass white opalescent and often with a molded texture, bowls, vases and posey jars. Very nice example. Thank you for posting.

      Just to be clear about terms, this is iridescent Martelé, and not opalescent glass. Opalescent glass is milky in appearance, to varying degrees, and this is not. This image shows an example of opalescent glass in the body of a vessel.

      It might be Rindskopf?
    6. welzebub, 4 years ago
      Might be.... If one were to believe that a green rimmed example with a distinct molded pattern, were in some stretch of the imagination an example of a Pepita "variant". Pepita... A decor that looks entirely different from this "variant", and a decor that was proved 3 years ago was also made by Kralik......

      Thanks all for the comments and helpful information . I am still learning about the beautiful glass items ( where , who , when ) that I occasionally find & purchase , some I keep and others I rescue to resell ( have watched so many items destroyed in thrift shops due to carelessness or negligence ) on line ; so I try my best to price well & know more about the items . Having fun & enjoying the beauty & craftsmanship .
