This type of Kralik vase shape is called punching bag (by me only). It comes in many decors and finishes. I would like to invite collectors to submit decor types to add to this shape series. I have only seen them in two sizes 9" and 14".

1. Millifiore Cane
2. Webbed
3. Flashed Marketry
4. Webbed - Uncased Confetti

    No. 2 is enough to bring someone back from the dead.

    Oh, I meant that as a big compliment, though the sense of my late-night statement wasn't clear, and I was perhaps being heretical. I was being fanciful, and reading the second vase in representational mode. I was taking the green lines as stems of vital and assertive flowers, and taking the horizontal green elements as foilage undulating in water. I find the the second vase captivating. By my statement 'enough to wake the dead' I meant that I found the second vase potently revitalizing.
