Is this vase Czech glass or Italian glass?
« on: May 05, 2007, 10:34:56 PM »
Any ideas on country of origin for this cased glass vase. The inside is a lighter shade of orange. Do you think it's Czech or Italian? Age?

Czech 1930s rose vase in Tango colours. Could be R├╝ckl or Kralik - but there were other makers of similar wares as well.
It is supposed to have a metal grill on top to stick in the flowers, but very often this went into the bin with the flowers.
