  KRALIK Bohemian Art Nouveau iridescent Mother of Pearl Glass Vase

Mother of Pearl Glass Vase with quilted effect.This is a beautiful example of Kralik, Mother of Pearl, opal Iridescent Art Nouveau glass produced in Austria, circa 1900 – 1910. Having been produced by one of the most historically important makers of the period. It has been crystal cased over white and all have been mouth blown into  an appealing, bulbous shaped mould of a Rose Bowl.. Measures  8cm in height x 14 cm across

They are exceptionally tactile and eye catching vases and their diamond-point surfaces are intaglio moulded and can be described as having the feel of orange peel. The governing factor to all of these vase shapes is their beautiful lustre of pearly white iridescence, which has been achieved by casing the white blown vase with clear glass before then spraying the finished piece with metallic salts. The application of these salts is critically temperature timed and only the glass worker can know at what crucial stage that this is and before the glass has cooled. The resulting effects are stunning as I am sure you will agree.

This example which has been decorated with a series of Swags
