The pattern reminds me of some Kralik pieces I've seen, probably early 20th as you thought  ;D ;D

It looks interesting..... But your photos are so small that they lose detail when I try to enlarge them.  Not even sure if that's a leaf or a label in the lid?  Would you be able to post further pictures?  You can have up to 125kb each.

Initial thought was bohemian.  Is it just an abstract design, or some sort of fruit design?  Please include measurements.

I do like what I can see so far!

Definitely Kralik and likely 1930s, one of the Millefiori patterns:

Yup again.  ;D The first one. I like it best upside-down. It reminds me of weird deep seabed creatures. 8)

The lidded pot you have is what is normally called a powder bowl.  :)
It's a lovely shape for showing off the decor. You don't need to display that upside-down.  ;D
