This vase pattern of Mother of Pearl by Kralik,works particularly well for the glass type and uses the diamond/rock-style prismatic formations of the mouldings to refract light with optimum effect.
The amazing qualities of rainbow-hued iridescent opalescence radiate & glow across its entire surface in ever-changing colours over a creamy-pearl-white.
This vase is a stunner, and it never fails to delight.
It is just one of several Kralik vases being offered to you from my collection. Each vase has its own unique appeal using the marvellous qualities of Mother of Pearl glass and produced by one of the most historically important Bohemian exponents of the period.
These vases are a wise investment. They are attractively priced and their popularity continues to increase and if you study my photographs one can see as to why.
It is unknown just how many pattern types of these (and many other patterns produced by Kralik) were designed. Most,if not all records & documents by Kralik remain secured within vaults and shall not become available to public knowledge until circa 2090.
Kralik were not the first,neither were they only glass factory to produce this marvellous Mother of Pearl glass,however that this vase is a Kralik piece is inarguably undisputed by collective scholarly thought and specialists.
Just as with most other vases of its pattern & type,it has been produced by blowing the glass into a mould from its top. Once cooled the top would be cut to the desired height and left unground or polished.
Most of these vases would be exported to numerous importers where many,but not all,would receive a metal mount which provided a posy holder to simplify floral arrangements,whilst also being the sufficient requirement to obscure the rough feel to the rims of these vases.
Grinding & polishing glass,even to this day,is a time consuming and costly procedure and as one can note from the vertical neck/band of these vase types,the addition of a mount was their eventual intention.
It cannot be said however,that all of these vase types existed with such. Those which were or even have been metal mounted,have suffered from their loss or metal corrosion,due to the very nature of the intended use ...
... Metal goes rusty, but glass does not!
Had this vase a mount? Nobody can say,for it was produced from anytime in date during the early quarter of the 20th century and more vases exist without any mounts than those which do now.
This vase is as worthy example for any collection,and it is offered to you here in fabulous original condition,save for the acceptable rim chip as is shown,due again to the very nature with which these vases were made by Kralik.
It therefore cannot and should not be deemed as severe damage and neither does it detract from this incredible piece of Jugendstil Kralik Mother of Pearl.
This is a wise investment piece opportunity for you to purchase.
