Small Kralik floriform and a Loetz vase. The vaseline and pink frit splashed vase is a very interesting and many were made in this style. Blown in a quilted diamond mould and then the leaves added. Rough pontil shows a trace of opalescence. The leaves start off as clear glass where attached to the rim and then become pink. The smaller pieces of cranberry frit are sprinkled on to the upper surface of the projections. An appealing combination. Height is 10 cms and width is 10 cms at widest point. The vase is a delightful cool green. It has a smooth polished pontil and is quite heavy for its size. There is a faint design on the body and it has been used on other articles by this maker. There is a name for this decoration but I've forgotten it. You lovers of Bohemian glass would know it! It typically flashes iridescence when placed in the light - gold accents and purple. I find this color very soothing to the eye. Height 11 cms and 6 cms across the ruffles. Circa 1900 - 1905. Update - Small ruffled vase was made by Loetz. Decor is most likely 'Rusticana' according to experienced collectors.
