Kralik, Applied Fruit & Foliage Tall White Iridescence Vase, Htf Size, Nice
This is now the modern day "Czech Republic". The vase is an optic ribbed vase with applied decorations. This vase has some size to it as it measures 10 13/16" tall and is 4 1/2" in diameter from the outside of the applied fruit decoration at the bottom. The bottom of the vase measures 4 3/16 in diameter. The vase has a tall stepped shape. It starts out with a round foot that bulges out and in and then rises up and tapers in as it heads to the top of the vessel. At the neck it flares out and comes in abruptly and then rises straight up to the top lip. It has a lovely style of art glass similar to Steuben's Verre de Soie or glass of silk base glass. It has optic vertical ribbing throughout. On one side are two elongated grapes or plums fused to the surface of the glass with green leaves and stems. This is also similar to Steuben's Mat-Su-No-Ke style of art glass. The plums or grapes are done is a deep purple iridescent glass with the leaves showing detailed veins in the leaves. You can actually feel the grooves in the leaves and these are done in a green iridescence. The base glass has soft white to clear iridescent finish. The colors are just superb as you can see strong colorful iridescence throughout. This vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no chips, cracks, nicks or dings. The vase has a polished top rim and no pontil mark on the bottom. This means the vase was blown from the top and cut from the blowing pipe at the top of the neck and then polished. This was quite common with the Bohemian glass blowers of the day. The vase is unsigned but the shape and decoration can be documented at the on-line Kralik Glass website. This pattern line was simply known as "Applied Fruit".
This is the tallest Kralik applied fruit vase I have ever owned and seen in my 48+ years as a collector and dealer. This vase would make lovely addition to any Art Deco or Art Nouveau art glass collection.
