To cap off my Art Nouveau themed weekend in style, here is my most recent arrival.
A wonderful example of Kralik's Crocus decor, the vase measures 17.5 cm tall, 8.1 across the top rim, & 10.5 cm across the base.
This piece has SO much going on...a bulbous, yet oddly graceful form, semi-abstract spatter decoration that cleverly suggests crocus blooms pushing up from the earth, subtle iridescence, & a uranium content to boot!
It is heavy & substantial - the glass is thick, yet the vase appears delicate due to the illusionistic effects of colour & form working together in perfect unison. It feels like a step up for my collection. Hope you all enjoy it as much as I do!
