    I'm going to try to tell this story in four pictures - let's see if it works.

    The first picture shows three bud vases. They have an all-over spatter on a transparent cobalt blue ground, I believe the surface treatment has been pretty firmly attributed as Kralik's "Webbed" decor (I will link to an article showing that in the comments below). Aside from the molded webbing, a very similar spatter on cobalt decor is also seen on this twisted shape (pic 2). Though it is certainly no guarantee, my mind has long associated this piece with the webbed vases. (I've seen others identify this shape shape as Kralik, so I'm not the only one.)

    The third picture shows an identical shape as picture 2 in a transparent amber with bottom-up spatter. Running the risk of a faulty premise, if one is Kralik then the other is also.

    This brings us to the fourth picture. This shows the amber vase with a group of similarly executed vases. Could they also be Kralik? I tend to think so but, until more definitive information becomes available this just illustrates the sort of associations my mind makes while trying to reconcile Czechoslovakian glass.

    The "Webbed" vases are around 6" (15 cm) tall (I sold them several years ago and don't have exact measurements). The twist vases are both 4¾" (12 cm) tall and the tall vases are each 6¾" (17 cm) tall.

      The fourth picture in this article shows the "Webbed" decor -
      Row 2 in the fourth picture shows the same shape. Of interest to me in regards to this post is the vase in transparent green with bottom-up spatter.
