Kralik Millefiori Vase --> Monster
« on: February 15, 2016, 02:43:09 AM »
Hi Gang

I just myself this Monster of a Vase.  Funny how you hear the size but it never *registers in your brain * till you visually see it with your eyes....LOL.  Believe it is a Kralik Millefiori Cave as it does have a very faint straight CZECHOSLOVAKIA on the bottom.   The size is about:

 ~ 11.25 inches tall
~ Top Width is 4.00 inches
~ Bottom Width is 5.25

The last picture with the a regular Coffee mug helps to show the Size the best!   Not sure for the year ? 

~ Thanks for looking !!

Very nice Rose and spot on too, some of the sizes and shapes Kralik used for these items were really dramatic.

The same canes are used here but on a different colour ground: http://www.kralik-glass.com/kralik-images/millefiori/kmf11.jpg

In way of complete contrast here is another Kralik Millefiori vase, small and with a simple shape. I guess it is possible it was once taller...
