Because, this type of decortive glass piece was very popular yet today is not really studied by Czech collectors. There seems to be a growing misconception that Kralik & Sons did not produce them, or of they did, it was in a small number.
I'm finding the opposite is true, and having the usual effect with my results, not taken seriously, and blamed for ulterior motives. Yet, I have shown in the past that I am a serious collector and do spent much time and funds to learn everything I can. Do I have to explain my conclusions to people who reject my ideas at every turn here on CW, no I don't.
