This lovely inkwell is Bohemian / Czech and the piece is made by Kralik Glass Company. In my research on this wonderful piece there is a lot of controversy on who actually made it. Some dealers say that it is by Loetz Company where I believe it is not. The beautiful green art glass “draped” optic mold pattern swirls around in a round design in an iridescent color. The cap and neck are solid brass in a leaf design. The top is marked with a patent that is associated with Kralik Company. The inkwell detaches from the lily pad leaf base. If you have a love of art glass and inkwells you will definitely want this lovely piece for your own.
