Early Kralik cameo pieces are very rare and hard to buy because they seem to be made by hand grinding and therefore vary greatly in quality. These date from the early part of the 20th century before Czechoslovakia was a country. They are the only kralik glass actually marked "kralik" or sometimes "De Kralik". I know little else about them other than they belong in a group because of the inconsistent quality, nouveau shapes, satin finish and marbled base color.
p.s. #3 is an interesting technique variant where the casing glass is exposed in the design rather than the background, also the edges are lined in enamel. Please send pics if you have them or let me know who owns these so i can thank you (first one is mine).
