These pieces were produced between 1928-1938 in Czechoslovakia by Kralik. They come in similar decors to other vases by kralik (powder, flame, tango). These shapes were produced by blowing them through a metal cage; allowing the bulges to protrude through the metal. They seem to mimic the technique of earlier french producers from the art deco era...I have also seen this technique for lamps in Spain and Greece. Once you have one you must get another and they look especially interesting in larger groups. All are blown from the top- but a few were transferred to the bottom to fire polish the rim, even fewer are flash iridised. Any info on these pieces would be appreciated since I only have a few images of them.
