Acid etched mark on glass vase - Czechoslovakia Kralik?
« on: May 29, 2016, 04:17:50 PM »
I've looked everywhere trying to identify this mark, but came up with nothing solid. I think it's a Kralik 1930's, but need help verifying please..

I mean, is the made in cezchoslovakia marking an authentic Kralik? The only thing I could find that closely resembles the identification is this:

Perhaps the mods could add'Czechoslovakia Kralik? or Welz?' to the title?
There definitely has been discussion somewhere, of the type of stamp that might have denoted Loetz,Kralik etc.
But I can't remember where I read it and it was a long time ago.

If the title is changed then perhaps Craig (Obscurities) might look in and be able to help.
It would help if the photos were directly profile side on so that the foot shape in profile can be seen.
Also dimensions of the vase would be good.

I can't help but was thinking perhaps also Welz or Ruckl for consideration?

A close up of the mark might help too please. At the moment, we've got lots of foot and not enough mark

As I remember from many years ago (before there were mesage boards, only email rings), the circular Czechoslovakia stamp is only found in the USA, and mainly (never say only!) On Kralik vases.  If this knowledge has meanwhile been confirmed or refuted I do not know.

I think that is still valid - semi circular Czechoslovakias are attributed to Kralik. There are also straight Czechoslovakia marks used by another company(ies), very occasionally I have seen a straight Czechoslovakia mark here in Britain but never yet a curved example.
