VERY odd vases!!! one glows!! ID = Kralik
« on: June 24, 2010, 04:36:50 AM »
I have had these 2 for a while and have always been very puzzled by them. they are 21cm tall....... & they look to be covered in glass chips, but smooth on inside. One really glows under UV!!! the other is a cranberry graduation. I have never seen another and would love any light anyone could share. Thanks!!

Hello, Nice examples. I believe the vases are by Kralik in an overshot finish.  The decor, one with humps on the surface is actually in the process of being renamed. It has been referred to as Humpen, but there has been some recent discussion regarding the name being changed, as Humpen refers to a style of beer stein.

Here is an additional example in a cranberry color overshot and more teardrop shaped protuberances.  If it is OK with you, I would like to copy your images for use on a reference site a group of us are working on.

Time wise they are likely circa 1900 - 1910 or so.....  I am curious as to their height.  I also sent you an email regarding images as I would love some high res ones....
