Show and tell - Kralik Crackle and Welz yellow stripe
« on: July 17, 2011, 11:20:06 PM »
I was out and about today at the Giant Flea and came away slightly disappointed that I didn't find a 'special' piece, which is what I'd been hoping for (although finding the little Isle Of Wight Studio bowl was good enough this week  :rah:).  However I did pick up two Bohemian pieces - the first a large Kralik crackle vase 10" tall and 4" wide and weighing about 1 1/2lb that would have been 'the' piece if it hadn't had nibbles in the rim, the second a pretty Welz vase with alternate straight and zigzag stripes and a yellow interior, a decor and colourway I hadn't yet found  :hiclp:
Enjoy  :sun:
(Keith, this nearly makes up for not having a red crackle piece with gold leaf on.....but not quite ;D if you ever want to sell, please let me know)

I love the Welz piece....  the decor is called Zig Zag Lines... many of them dart back and forth a bit.... Great Decor.... So far only found in this color combo and also green and white.....

Nice Kralik too.... although I am partial to the Welz piece myself.... :thup:

thanks  :) 
Keith, how tall is the Kralik orange you show? I was hoping *I'd* found the biggest piece of crackle :cry: 
 ;D I also have this in a short squat vase shape - it's a gorgeous colour.

Thanks  :sun: the carving is  well over 2ft tall. It's a Makonde carving from Tanzania from a hardwood like ebony, I think called Mpingo wood if I remember correctly.  It is full of people and has a lizard and snake on it as well.  It stands on a carved table that I need to find out more about.
