What a pretty little piece, the feet are similar to many English pieces I have seen. I'll have a look in my books and see what I can find.

Alfredo agreed.... Definitely NOT Loetz.  If it is Czech, then it is in all likelyhood Kralik, with the thorned feet.

I also inquired with Alfredo about the English possibility, and his feeling that the piece is too "coarse" for English. His experience is that English pieces are more delicate... 

I defer to those more well educated than I on this one..... I don't do a lot with English glass.

Thank you for asking. It doesn't matter to me what it is, I love it. My shelves of unkowns are much bigger than my shelves of knowns

While looking at something else I found this Kralik inkwell; the martele looks very like mine. Mine is certainly very well made. I think Kralik is a pretty good bet

Hi Christine,

I would agree with that.....  Although Rindskopf did some Martele pieces, their "hammered" pattern was usually not as well defined as some of the Kralik pieces. I think a Kralik attribution onthis piece would be correct.... An interesting piece for them, and appearing to be relatively early for Martele....  I can not think of another Martele I have seen with the thorn style feet......

I think this has now been formally id'd as Kralik from more recent posts with similar pieces in different colours.
