Ok guys and gals,

Here is a fine bohemian iridised 'thingy'. Almost certainly Poschinger, just possibly Kralik, definitely c1900-1910. Cold cut top, no pontil.

Just one problem, why did someone make it this wonderful and odd shape?

I saw it in field, not far from Paris, and had to have it. Just too weird.

Suggestions please.....

    I have seen at least 2 of these online, in the Helios decor (pale yellow, golden-orange spots at the bottom). Mine are likely by Poschinger
