A simple beaker shape in transparent aqua has, on this vase, been enhanced with a precisely wound white threading. Taking it one step further, a pattern of circles was then ground through the threading into the aqua body. I find it fascinating that this is accomplished without chipping or damaging the threading in any way but here it is - 20 circles, not a chip, flake, ding, or missing piece of thread.
This vase stands just over 8" (20.5 cm) tall with a diameter at the top of just under 5" (12.5 cm). The underside has a two-line "open O" sandblasted CZECHO-SLOVAKIA mark. I try to show in the insert that the mark was applied after the threading. I can link this ground threaded decor to a confirmed Kralik shape and, unless I'm shown otherwise :+), I'm going to believe this vase is also Kralik.
