Nice Kralik corded design Art Deco period green glass vase with multi-color spatter decoration at the base that stretches upward toward the waist and a black glass snake entwined around the vase from waist to shoulder. The spatter decor is mostly yellow and black but does also contain a bit of blue and red. The snake's head has two dimpled areas for eyes. 'Czechoslovakia' is etched across the base in a straight line. Polished rim, no pontil mark, just a slight kick-up in the base. Roughness at rim edges from polishing process at manufacture, easier felt than seen, and a small bit of impurity or frit stuck in the throat of the vase on the inside (shown). Overall excellent condition; 8 1/8 inches tall, 2 5/8 wide across the top and 3 inches across the bottom.
Uncommon antiques for the investor and choice collectibles for the clever collector.
COLLECTION: A time machine on a shelf; a museum in the kitchen. Reach out to touch the memory of sweet childhood laughter.
