Bohemian Art Nouveau Iridescent Glass Vase by Kralik – Early 1900s

Offered to you here in excellent condition is a beautiful example of Art Nouveau iridescent glass, produced by the Czechoslovakian glass makers Wilhelm Kralik Sohne.

It is an early piece which dates pre-1910 and has been mouth blown and formed by hand.

To capture the amazing iridescent qualities of this piece is impossible by means of photography. Ever-changing metallic-like colours fluctuate across the surface of this glass in an instant. Shimmering blues & purples, golden-amber & silvery-green, flicker instantaneously as like oil upon water.

The body of the vase has a textured martelé (`hammered') surface, which was achieved by blowing the glass into textured mould before then forming it into shape. A green glass stylized leaf & stalk (rigaree) was then applied to both sides of the piece and the entire then whilst the glass was still hot it was sprayed with metallic salts to produce the iridescence, which is then entirely unique to each piece.

There is no damage to this piece and it is in excellent condition throughout for your collection...
