And you relinquished this beauty??
Thanks for your response. I examined the image of stacked bowls and could observe the differences you mentioned. However, I also found the similarities (of angle and proportion) to be significant - ...
Were stencils used, do you think?
This piece is fantastic!
This post is awesome. Great detective work. It is so hard to find a convincing attribution for some of these iridescent green pieces. This looks like persuasive evidence for these three shapes. Th...
And perhaps later than Victorian?
I would agree it looks like a Welz decor, but the shape is unusual. Nice find.
This is the decor I was referring to: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/182391-czech-millefiori-vase--kralik
Vetraio, I have had exactly the same thoughts about that image and Loetz Ausf 220!
I find this development fascinating. I have a number of examples of the same two millefiori and green powder but on a black/dark amethyst background with bright red interior. The decor is shown in t...
I would also like to see the new piece (Image 1) with its lid off. I can't be convinced it has the same shape (as Tango Sklo in Image 3) unless the very top of the piece is concealing a further 'ring'.
Great piece and your last photo is particularly striking.
See final image in this post for comparison of Welz and Kralik interpretations: https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/273690-welz-mini-hexagonal-vase----another-s
I do not agree that information is correct. The 'Kralik' version of that shape has a round base and a round rim (and is also a little taller). The base in your example is clearly hexagonal - This is...
Sklo's post - 3rd reference in my comment @ 1 - clearly shows the difference in shape in the final image. All references were included so that you could digest the arguments and decide for yourself. ...

It's not often that I find this colour appealing, but juxtaposed with your Pepita it looks very handsome indeed.
And the decor of the other one often seen in a fan vase shape: eg. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Wonderful-Wilhelm-Kralik-Amethyst-and-Yellow-Murrini-Czechoslovakia-Fan-Vase-/174332034968?hash=item2896...
Same decor as your shade, perhaps?? Opening up a whole can of worms for pieces on struts? https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/82558-kralik-murrine-candy-dish?in=441-activity
Or is it 2131???????
So, these are Steinwald now, right?
What date is the catalogue?
I love these but have never been convinced of the Kralik attribution. And now that Kralik attributions are in total re-evaluation, with the Ernst Steinwald developments, ... Sweet vase, nicely res...
I am referring to - in order of appearance in your images above - Dec 2190, 2398, 2131, 2323, 2133, 2275 The majority of the decors are recognisable. Dec 2032 (Image 1, pg 2) has got me stumped, bu...
OMG. This is indeed a revelation. So - the wonderful millefiore decors I have always admired (and collected) are not Kralik, they are Steinwald. Pass the smelling salts...
Loving the close-up photos and your exploration of marquetry techniques. Thanks.
Are you suggesting the decors in photos 1 and 3 are the same, or have I misunderstood? They look very different to me......???
Do you own, or have you seen a shape that matches the piece (apparently marquetry) in the Steinwald ad?
Anyone seen the article referenced @68? If Steinwald was proposed as contender for making 'marquetry' pieces as far back as 1998, why has the Kralik attribution persisted without question, until now?
I am following this development with much excitement. Thanks so much for sharing the information.
Interesting to note also that a similarly sourced reference notes, in 1998, that maquetry pieces could be attributable to Kralik OR Steinwald. I haven't seen the article: https://cmog.primo.exlibris...
Well put Vetraio. I've been wondering that too!
Of course, the webbed (sometimes called 'muscle') decors, usually attributed to Kralik, come in a vast array of colours - not just with dark colours. They are seen with grounds of yellow, blue, orang...
e.g. 4th example under Kralik 'Spiral' http://www.kralik-glass.com/frametemplate.html
Yes, perhaps it's the hexagonal bowl shape usually attributed to Kralik. I have one in webbed decor (blue on transparent pinkish) with semi-circular mark. The ribs look a bit more pronounced in the ...
This discussion is fascinating. I, too, immediately saw the image second down on the right as the highly-prized (and highly-priced) "Kralik" marquetry decor. Could it really not be Kralik at all? T...
Seems a strong argument to me. Where does that leave the semicircle provenance mark generally used to attribute Kralik production?
Gosh - I can see many Kralik attributions may come crumbling down based on this new information... Please continue to post the outcome of further investigations for those of us not involved in other ...
I'm so confused. There seem to be other shapes in that ad (first image) which appear to be ones usually attributed to Kralik. What does this all mean?
I like your comparison with marbles, but had no idea what you meant at first - text in post says "marches" (you might like to change and delete this)
No idea who made them, but they are great!!
Last photo is to die for!!!
I've always thought these rather odd until I've seen your example with flowers! Beautiful.
Glad you did post the pattern in. I don't have access to these and love seeing them! Great information, fab piece!
Yes, it's a Welz decor.
Love it all, but the leaves are spectacular.
This one's sweet, but I'm waiting for the knockout Rindskopf!
This is an unusual one and very appealing. Your shape comparison with Cornhusker's example is certainly convincing, but the decors are quite different - as you have noted in additional comments. Ama...
I hadn't seen MacArt's 7-year old post until now. I agree with it entirely. I think the two items in that auction had spurious labels.
