    Another cracking cheap find, again by a seller that didn't want to post. Described as "1930s Studio Glass Vase". I accidentally did not read the original posting details, I bid and won, but then realised the seller rquired me to pick it up - it would have been another very long road trip, so, I had to ask him to cancel the sale, which he did, I wrote to him and asked him if he would reconsider posting, he said no, so I told him exactly what it was, how old and gave him maker details, just to help him with his sale.
    A week later, he sends me a message and that he would now post (he did not include international), pushed the price up by a few pounds and marked the postage as free. I bid again and won with no other competition or watchers!! he didn't even change the description, which remained as "1930s Studio Glass Vase", despite the information I gave him.
    All in all a great buy, He had mentioned the size but even so, when it arrived I was astonished at just how big this piece is and the weight, 2kg, (4.4lbs) and 14" tall.

    NB. Interestingly, I have seen this shape most often described as Rindskopf

      I have never seen this decor in this shape. Again, I have to congratulate you on a great finding.

      Yeah - as I say, the shape is most often regarded as Rindskpof - interesting!
    3. Wow22, 2 years ago
      So, how tall is it please?
    4. philmac51 philmac51, 2 years ago
      Ohh - I'm sorry - completely forgot to mention that - It's 14"
    5. philmac51 philmac51, 2 years ago
      I just added that to the description.

      Thanks Marin.... this guilty obsession pays off big time sometimes!

      Nothing to feel guilty about! :-)
      I'm always lurking about eBay & anywhere else I might score art glass, either online or in person. Relentlessness has its rewards!

      Hahaha..... so true!

      What a beauty! It was kind of you to tell him what he had; I like to do that sometimes, too. Again, your patience paid off for you with this one! Although this shape is sometimes ID’d as Rindskopf, it is definitely a Kralik shape. The tricorn top and deep indentations are clues to it being Kralik. I don’t think I have ever seen a aqua gold so big before!

      Thanks Michells - I was so surprised that A. He didn't use the information I gave him in the main description and B. that he listed it again with postage. It's been a long time since I bought any early Kralik, but this one was exceptional in scale, and the price.... well, I couldn't let it pass!
