Great piece Anik,

it looks quite a good match for 6451 It is in CGR 1966/6, I think.

Thank you, Robert!   So still Strobachova and still 1964, but a candleholder.  I'm happy.  :)

Unfortunately damaged, but still a stunner (and quite scarce I would think, haven't seen it outside the pattern books so far):

big (25 cm) and heavy bottle vase, designed by Maria Stahlikova / Milena Veliskova in 1961, PN 6128.
I guess I will not get closer to a Blecha piece than this ;)

A stunning piece Michael, one that I've only seen in the pattern book. Congratulations.

Skrdllovice seems to have dried up for me right now.  However, I have managed to acquire four very different pieces. The swans are Emanuel and I appreciate them for their historical value. The green/blue and blue/red pieces are Vizner, both included in his book, and the chimney vase is a well made Svoboda.

Thanks for the comment, David!
The vase is my favourite Skrdlovice piece at the moment.
BTW, in the pattern book there is a very faint "100" next to the drawing, so quite a limited run.

And yes, it has become quite hard to find Skrdlovice pieces which add something new to our long long thread...
You managed it perfectly.

All pieces are very good, but I particularly love the blue and red Vizner vase, much more effective colourway than my blue/green one.
And I am always happy to see rare early Emanuel Beranek pieces.
The swans' basic shape was later used by other glassworks -- I have one made at Karlovarske Sklo.

Nice pieces David. I like your vase too Rocco, I hope the damage is not too severe....... still as you say, a rare thing. I have not seen the swans in the cased pulegoso before, I will find out a swan of mine in plain pulegoso for the thread...... Quite rare Vizners too. I agree that finding interesting Skrdlovice seems harder these days but Vienna (and Canada) still hides a few I am sure. Nice finds gents!

Yikes...  now I know I have to invest some time in studying the pattern books again:  Michael, I wouldn't have recognized your piece as Skrdlovice.  :-[    Super find, and I'm very impressed by your skill in being able to identify these uncommon designs. 

David, interesting additions to your collection, but I'm most taken with the green blue Vizner.

Some 1950s/early 1960s pieces added:
1. I was looking for this one for quite a while: lovely Stahlikova/Veliskova beaked vase, opaque white inner casing, surrounded by a black band. PN 6005, 28.5 cm high.
2. big bowl by Emanuel Beranek, appr. 36 cm wide. PN 59108. Marvelously executed -- massive base, paper thin rim, totally underestimated pieces imho. (unfortunately not easy to photograph).
3. mystery piece: curvaceous bowl, 20 cm wide. It just has to be Skrdlovice. The closest I could find (not a perfect match though) is a design by Marie Stahlikova, PN 5623.
Again in the scarce yellowish opalescent colour, this time with a light rose-brown inner casing. No iridescence.
