A small Kralik 'Aquagold' bowl from c. 1905 measuring 9.5 cm high and 14 cm in diameter with a smoothly polished pontil mark.
One facet of this piece which intrigues me is the sheer quantity of ash particles embedded in the glass (see especially picture no. 1). Could this be due to a particularly low grade of brown coal (lignite) in the furnace that day ?
