What wonderful news....you must be thrilled to pieces.  And of course, as ever, we have all learned something new. :thup:

I have had a lot going on family-wise over the past few months, :'( but will be back on track in a few weeks when all the dust settles and will be back to ask a few more questions and and also stick my oar in (as I am wont to do) on occasions. >:D

I have a week off work so (children aside) some time to do some research and read the posts.

To Flying Free, just an update on my little inkwell, have seen your new post on the V Nason box, and then the link to my inkwell, and your lovely Kralik box. :hiclp:  My inkwell is still a mystery, so was pleased to see it is similar to yours. I've posted a few more updated photos of closeups, but my colour is very dull untill the light hits it, then its a beautiful light olive.
I still have no idea just who made it, but your post has made me get it out and have another look at it. :huh:

I'm just raising this thread again to be sure I understand about this box.
Since it was id'd I've come across the same one in amber that was on ebay France and also come across information myself (can't remember where now though) that these were used by Marcel Franck.
I was browsing on Collectors Weekly and recently another has been posted that I believe is the same as mine but the taller version.  It is dark blue.  The poster listed it as Marcel Franck glass jar.  I posted on that thread to say mine had been identified as being made by Kralik (darned if I can find the reference Alfredo gave me at the moment though).

Anyway, the original poster on that thread has said that his is pressed glass.  I'm pretty sure mine and his originated from the same source and I don't see how it can be pressed glass.  Am I missing something here?  Happy to upload more pictures if that is needed. I posted more pics on the page before this  but didn't include interior shots.  I'm pretty sure this is not pressed  :-X

It cannot be pressed glass; you cannot press something narrower at the top because you cannot get the plunger out and pressing such random cracks would require a very expensive mould. It is mould blown but then much Kralik production was
