The vase is etched on the bottom “Czechoslovakia,” a mark known to be used by the Bohemian glassmaker Kralik, though the vase is similar to production by the glassmaker Loetz.
The date is circa 1900 to 1930.
The vase is 9 ½” high and 3 ¼” wide at the foot.
The art glass is a dark purple amethyst with an iridescence that shimmers the colors to blue, green and gold. Or perhaps the outer glass is black and the iridescence makes the glass appear purple. The interior casing is a dark yellow gold, almost an apricot color. The threads are pulled down the sides of the vase in half loops.
The rim is polished flat. There is a slight bevel on the inside.
The pontil is round, slightly indented and smooth. The bottom shows age wear.
There are no nicks, chips or cracks, just handling wear due to age.
