The jug measures 18cm tall and the drip style pattern travels into the centre of the base. No marks to base.

Thanks all. I have found on http://www.kralik-glass.com that my jug is Kralik and it is known as "Bambus" (bamboo).

Hi there, Yes it is Bambus....

M, The decor itself will actually glow orange under UV....  the glass on this one does not look like it will, but that could just be the image.....

Lustrousstone has a Knuckle vase in this design and it glows bright green with UV - hers is definitely uranium.

This one isn't uranium. Perhaps the Seaweed page needs updating on the site...

If nothing else, it needs to be updated with your exceptionally fine "glows like a traffic light" example.....  so much to do... so very little time.....

I got confused because I thought the decor was Seaweed, then more confused when I realised Seaweed and Bambus were both there

oops Craig, you are right.  Sorry to disappoint Heartofsklo with a possible additional attribute to an already fabulous piece  ;D but I was overcome with envy when I posted that reply and didn't look carefully enough at the pics....please forgive me  :mrgreen:
