I wish I could say that I know who made this piece, but I don't. Shape-wise, it's closer to pieces by Rindskopf, but I've never seen a Rindskopf bowl like this with indents on the bottom half, and I've never seen this decor from Rindskopf or anyone else before. The glass is highly metallic and iridescent , and it is pockmarked with globular frit inclusions within small bubbles. In that sense, it's closer to some decors that Kralik has done (such as "snowflake"), but it is not marked in any way. It does have a fire polished rim and polished pontil. Photographing it was a real challenge. If anyone else has any ideas, I would be grateful to hear them.
