Wilhelm Kralik Bowl

Lovely Victorian art glass covered cookie jar made by Wilhelm Kralik, Bohemia.  A similar bowl with the identical silver rim and top is shown on page 200 of Art Glass Nouveau by Ray and Lee Grover. The glass is a patented Peloton,  ”shredded cocoanut” or “spaghetti” covered bowl.  This one has a tree design set into an interesting contoured pink/white case glass surface.  The rim and inside of the top are numbered “2561″.    It as a plated top with a brass handle.   A decorative and unusual piece of Victorian glass!   Circa:  1880.   Dimensions:   7.5″ H   x   6″ Diameter.    Condition:  Excellent original condition.  I chose not to polish the top and rim but this could be done if desired.    Price:   $650DSC_0272 DSC_0277 DSC_0276 DSC_0275 DSC_0274
