    This vase has such a weird presence. Is it a salesman's sample presenting three different decors or a purposeful design to be used in revolving situations? Is it a mass-produced item squeezed out of some variation of a bottle making machine and devoid of any human intervention?

    A three-dimensional split circular "Czecho Slovakia" is on the underside. Vase stands 8¼" (21 cm) tall with a diameter of 3½" (8. cm).

      These embossed style marks are seen in a variety of configurations, but to the best of my knowledge none have ever been solidly linked to any particular house. Although there is a website which declares a grouping of these vases commonly found with an embossed mark to be Kralik, the Rückl website they appear on has never provided any supporting evidence to support that claim. They just claim they are. I wish it were that simple.....

      This image shows examples shown as Kralik on my favorite website of misinformation, and commonly found with an embossed mark. They are shown with a vase in a different shape and decor which has the same type of mark generally associated with the group of vases.

      In another example, which helps to confuse the issue and make defining the marks origin even more difficult, here is an image showing two JIP examples which appear to be the same vase, and in this case, the two quite similar vases have completely different embossed marks.

      Lastly, this link is to a post in this forum by Artfoot, showing the mark on the underside of several examples, to include on that is shown on the Rückl website as an example of Kralik production, but shown with absolutely no supporting evidence.

      In my first comment I made a statement of "these vases". That was meant to identify vases with an embossed mark, and not a group of vases just like this one in this post.

      Thank you Craig. Not only can these relief marks not be tied to any particular producer, I question whether they can even be linked to the interwar period. Those orange JIPs in your second link look like they should be from the 1970s. I think my post of a year or so ago (3rd link) hinted at that skepticism.
