If you look at the place where the pattern meets the rim, the strand is opaque on the outside, and clear on the inside. I cannot seem to figure out how they did it.

But wouldn't that be the case? It seems so with a stripey opalescent Victorian piece I have with a cut rim. The reheating is only the outside. It's a lovely bowl but surely it could also be more modern but using the same technique.

Christine the pattern on Ivo's seems to be the same or remarkably similar to those in the link (which indicate 1910 ish).  Do you think they might all be more modern than the link implies maybe then? 
The only thing I would add is that the other one I saw was attributed to Kralik if I recall correctly, but had a different pattern to Ivo's though seemed to be the same execution, and seemed to be a little 'yellower' if I recall. It probably wouldn't, but it looked to me like it would glow under blacklight, it had that kind of older opalescent look.

I have no idea, but inspiration comes from many places. Just playing devil's advocate

true  :)  and Ivo's bowl is a very contemporary shape as well although I'm not sure that counts for anything really.  It's a gorgeous technique whoever did it.  I love the opalescence and the funky design.

Those other items look quite heavy; Ivo's looks quite fine.

If one looks at enough stuff enough of the time one will eventually, through dumb luck, be able to find something they have looked for but never thought they would actually locate......  I think this image will shed some light on the bowl..... I do not know who the label is by, but I think it points pretty strongly at a country of origin.....   :thup:

The candle stick is 3-3/8 tall and 3-3/4 across at the base.......

 :24: :24: :24: Just when you thought it was safe to cross the street!

In any case, we now have start date and end date (1918-1990) - the only question is, who was JM Co.  - Importer? Who used the crossed swords?

 :hiclp:  excellent.  It isn't the piece I saw on my travels.  The one I saw was a bowl/vase and I'm sure it was on a site of someone's photos.  It was attributed to Kralik I'm sure.  I'll have another look through later to see if I can find it.

Maybe someone with the Glassmarken Lexicon can investigate for us.....

I have seen the label on a couple of other pieces and it is much closer to the 1918 date than the 1990 date.... and.....  I just realized I had this in my archive of Marks and Labels on vases I have been accumulating.....  It has been there so long I did not remember I had it.......  They are pieces in a friends collection.....  One has the label....
