I like Palecek's designs... they're artistic and highly attractive, and in most cases, perfectly utalitarian.
Thank you for sharing, vetraio50.
I also got a new Skrdlovice piece, though I'm not 100% sure what it is. I've looked through the pattern books and decided that it's quite likely a Strobchova design from 1964 (6427?). It's 9cm tall, 12cm wide and weighs 1267g. It's a very light smokey amethyst with a purple 'egg'. It retains its original gold Skrdlovice label.
