    Large "knuckle" bowl is 5" (12.5 cm) deep and measures 8" (20.3 cm) from point to point across the top. It has a predominantly blue spattered upper portion on an opalescent pink body. This is accentuated with a looping thin red drizzle. The bottom of the interior has a shallow circular indentation. Probably not deep enough to support an epergne-style trumpet vase but I wonder if there may have been a figure or an arranger frog that went with this bowl?

    The underside has a ground pontil with a bit of the red drizzle left behind after the grind. It is also marked "Czechoslovakia" with a sandblasted arched mark that is a slightly different font than the more attributable Kralik arch mark. Is this a Kralik mark too, or something that is just called Kralik in the open market?

      In an attempt to answer one of my own questions I noticed that I had previously posted this item -

      - which I believe is essentially the same decor but with blue drizzles. A little further digging found this old post by jagsrock -

      The pieces in both of these posts have the more attributable font Kralik arch mark. The fan vase is a verifiable Kralik shape and is the same decor as the bowl in this post. It is sinking in that using marks for attribution is risky business but the similarity of these two marks in both shape and marking method (sandblasting) and both marks appearing on an identical decor should, at least, arouse suspicions that they are both Kralik marks.
