I have 2 vases like this which I have attributed to Kralik with the help of Alfredo and Craig. You can see them here on my blog:

Thanks so very much to everyone :sun:
Kevin, now Mac has posted one of the taller ones which started this thread, positively id'd as Kralik, then yes I would think that means there was an error in the Manley Book.
I don't know anything about Manley as I don't have the book - Could his attribution be based on assumption rather than a definitive pattern book or similar?  Acccording to Paul there is a Kralik basket in there attributed to Richardsons which has also been definitely id as Kralik.

There are a lot of errors in Manley; things have moved on immensely since he wrote his book. He made assumptions on the basis of the current knowledge at the time. (The book is worth having for a dribble over Victorian glass)

Christine, I don't have that many books but a few I do have are quite old and occasionally I look at them and think ah...I know what that is.  But I  love to have them as they have great pics in particularly of antique glass and Roman or Early Chinese glass or glass I dont collect.   fingers crossed I'll find an affordable copy at some point.

I would agree it is a Kralik piece in Mother of Pearl....  The seller in the ebay listing is a member of the board......

I have been told that glass is my mistress......
