Including WILHELM KRALIK & SONS Czech Glass

Idglass II

     The identification process continues from the site's page EXAMPLE I, with two Tango Sklo A. Rückl exhibit glass pieces. #6, which had 2 glass pieces with this decor in the same photo, a blue jar base missing it's lid and a green perfume bottle with no metal rim (in top image - home page), chosen due to the high number of pieces with this decor. 


Note: To date, glass pieces acquired with these decors or shapes have been found to share a similarity in construction. A base layer of a uniform colored glass interior with a heavy transparent glass exterior casing, between these a layer of a multi-colored glass particles was applied, pulled and tooled in swirls by hand. This approach gives depth to the contrasting design. It also gives all these decorative items a sturdier look and weight than the norm for Czech glass.
