Three piece Art Deco epergne is surprisingly from Kralik during the Art Deco era. Production date unknown.
Each section is blown of opaque white glass with a ribbon of green glass along the crimped rim . (Does not react under UV light.)
There's a pontil scar on the bottom of the base and a semi-circle Czechoslovakia acid stamp on the base as well that is usually attributed to Kralik.
12" tall, complete.
The rim from the top vase is 4-1/2" diameter.
The middle section is 7" diameter.
The rim on the footed base is 9" diameter.
The base is 4-7/8" diameter.
* The last photo is from a 1905 Butler Brother's wholesale advertisement showing a similar bowl shape with the same crimped rim that the epergne has. There is also another 1900 Butler Bros. advertisement showing the same crimped design pattern on a bowl as well. I'll have to follow up with another posting. With the epergne having the Czechoslovakia mark from 1918 or after, this is a nice example to show how designs were repeated for many years and why production dates can be difficult to understand.
Thanks, so much for looking!
