This is a Bohemian Czech art glass vase that is different and unusual. The glass is a green opaline, which is an unusual color and glass for production circa 1930. The glass has the furnace fired overlay glass decoration, but around the foot and streaking up around the bottom only. The maker is Kralik.
The vase is 9” high and 3 ½” wide at the foot.
The shape is one of a round foot, swelling into the body with a slightly wider upper belly, tapering in and then out into the mouth. The rim is flat. There are no bevels on the rim.
I believe the bottom is marked “Czechoslovakia.” I might be wrong. I put tape on the bottom and above the tape you can see the faded name in a strong light. At least I think I see it. I took a good photo and it sure looks to me like some of the letters show.
The rim has a few pinprick nicks, can’t be felt and they are difficult to see. There are no chips, other types of nicks, or cracks.
The middle of the bottom is round and indented.
