This is an unusual Bohemian Czech art glass vase of pulled feathers, or thread colors, with an orange casing, though in some lights the color appears to be red. The maker is Kralik. The date is the 1930s.
The vase is 9” high and 6 ¾” wide at the mouth.
The shape is a round foot, flaring up gradually to a wide mouth.
The outside colors to me look like black and a rusty red. However the iridescence adds green to the colors in certain lights.
There are no chips, nicks or cracks. Except there is some odd age wear in a few spots on the outside of the vase that has faded the iridescence, or the colors; I show a few photos of this wear, so please look at it closely and try to look past any light glares from the camera. Also, the interior orange glass has quite a few small air bubbles, hard to see in the photos, but perhaps if you zoom in you can see them. There are a few tiny air bubbles on the bottom underside.
The rim is rounded. The bottom is slightly indented and smooth
