There is so much to know and experience with Czech decorative glass, even if you maintain only a few makers as your focus. This was a surprising diamond optic piece, quite large for it's style, has a beautiful subtle finish with a light pink graduated glass interior, and the texture of the elevated diamond shapes is on the interior surface. Measures 6 inches at widest point and 4.5 inches high.
One of those types of glass molding Kralik is very good at. I am showing two other pieces, which mix this decor on the outside surface and on the inside surface, an amber bridal bank, and a translucent pink vase. You will notice that my new jar has no pontil as it was cut from the top rim, and the other two glass pieces from the bottom of the molds used. No mark on any of them.
