A rare matching Lötz Kralik Bohemia Humpen ‘Overshot’ Glass Vases* - c1900-1920. Which react spectacularly to UV Black Light.
Intricate and delicate glass making provides a very tactile and beautiful surface. Although Art Nouveau, the combination of colour and shape give the vases a very contemporary - almost surreal - look.
The ‘ Overshot glass was made by rolling a partially or fully inflated gob of hot glass on finely ground shards of glass that had been placed on a steel plate called a marver. The gob was then lightly reheated to remove the sharp edges of the ground glass’.
This design is rare and very seldom seen in this colour which provides a contemporary feel to the pieces

* we did not usually supply designs that have flea bites to the rims. But because of the rarity and beauty of these vases we have included them in our store. The bodies are unscathed and perfect but the cut rims have some flea bites - hardly noticeable on one vase; and minimal on the other.
The making process means they pick pieced of ash which remain in the glass. These are present in all of these type of vases - and are present too. These are not faults but part of the early 20th century glass making process.
