This beautiful iridescent 9.25" t. blown-molded art glass vase is made of opaque milk (opal) glass, cased in white, and has a stylus-engraved signature KRALIK and a ground pontil mark. The top rim is ruffled and there is an applied cobalt glass "snake" around the neck. I am told that this type of KRALIK glass was made in Germany between 1945 and 1949.

Because I am not a glass expert, I can only give you an approximate description of condition. Buyers: Please keep that in mind while bidding. Returns will be accepted ONLY if buyer pays shipping/insurance both ways.

The threading at the bottom of the snake tapers off and seems to have a few irregularities. Some or all of this was just incidental to the process of manufacturing. I do not see anything there that looks like breakage. I do no see any scratches, and there are no nicks, chips, or cracks.
