Mystery Solved

    I'm pretty sure I've seen this shape with modern stickers on it from Poland :) I'll keep my eyes open for another.

    I keep meaning to start hoarding pics. I even started a picasa account to try and help with that. I always forget.

    Greetings: Mucho thanks to czechman and Alfredo for confirming Kralik as the maker of this vase. Alfredo - your indepth knowledge (ref: Ketterer Catalog / 1979) is amazing. Would you be, per chance, a retired prof from NY? Regards, Nootch

    Greetings all: Guess what! Please refer to current Ebay item 190544718882, listed from Austria. Mine is 10" tall vs the listed pair at 6.6" tall. Thanks again. Regards.

    I remain unconvinced. None of those references are at all confirmed by anything solid. An auction house and someone in an Ebay listing? Just because Ricke bought the whole collection, which included one of these does not mean that everything in the collection was old. Collections come with good and bad.
    I am pretty sure I've seen these with tags in this shape and decor and to me the Pontil scar definitely looks like a new snap off scar on the one pictured here (although that could be an optical illusion).

    I've been odd man out before, against the tide as it were, and that's ok. :) Maybe there is a better reason to think these are Kralik that has been forgotten or not shown.. My role here is to offer a counter point without that evidence having been offered. :)

    With that I am going to bow out of this conversation unless I find that proof to support my assertions. It may be awhile ;)

    I pose this questing to to pundits out there .
    Did Kralik make such thick heavey glass vases ?
  7. Greatsnowyowl Greatsnowyowl, 5 years ago
    Kyle, yup.. an ebay *Dealer* has decided to call it Kralik.. does that make it fact?

    nuh huh.

    Just like auction catalogs are for the most part to be distrusted as a legitimate source.

    Their job is to sell things to people.

    I am sorry I meant Gary not Kyle.

    different pontil rods leave different kinds of marks or scars. The modern type leave a very clean ring like this has. The broken pontil scars from way back leave a different looking scar.

    They only started using the kind of rod that caused these marks in the 60's or so.
