This is a Bohemian Czech art glass vase. The glassmaker is Kralik. The glass is called Snowflake. The date is circa 1900.
The vase is 6 ¼” high and 3 ½” wide at the belly.
The glass is green and is threaded horizontally. The outside of the glass has a white frit, which is why this glass is called Snowflake. The outside of the glass has an applied iridescent that gives parts of the glass a bronze to purple hue, depending upon the light.
The rim is polished flat. There are a few nicks that are felt as rough spots on the inside of the rim, and this may be more due to the glassmaking process of using threads and frits than from aging wear. The nicks can’t be seen in the photos, however do zoom in on the photos that show the rim.
The threads and frit continue on to the bottom, which is slightly indented. There is age wear on the bottom.
