Kralik Soft Crackle has been suggested to me for this but surely not ?
I'd appreciate confirmation either way from the Kralik experts here. Thank you. Peter
I personally think it's a modern studio piece but without signature that's going to be hard to prove too.

    Thank you Alfredo. I was hoping you would respond. Please see my possible Loetz piece.
    Tim Harris (son of the famous Michael) at Isle of Wight Studio Glass was initially suggested. Most of their work is not signed in any way but Tim's white crackle range generally was. Maybe a second or early experimental piece. I have avenues to explore in that direction before discounting the possibility entirely.
    Yes it is amazing what the Chinese and Romanians have produced in recent years. Some of it is now good enough to be collectable in years to come.

    it is modern, krackle finished texture was used by many companies in Bohemia including kralik, loetz, this specific technique the base color is rolled over a thin powder glass color then sprayed with water (or maybe dipped in water). As the surface cracked the vase is blown bigger and refired to fuse the surface.
