These vases are designed in the 30-s.
The crackle decoration is on the surface of the vase. They used stannous chloride to create that. Not very pleasant to inhale I'm afraid...

    ''Tinchloride'' te be precise.
    They also used ''antimoonchloride'' (antimony), but that was too lethal and they soon banned that. But it gave a beautiful black crackle. View my early post about Serica 13 for the photo.
