Emerald-green Czech vases - REVISITED
« on: July 25, 2005, 11:57:34 PM »
Hi,

Following are photos of two vases that I believe are Czech – both in a typical chunky glass in a beautiful emerald-green and have ribbed sides with a slight waist.

:: Please click thumbnails to enlarge ::

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v288/dencill/green-czech/t-czech-green02.jpg) : (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v288/dencill/green-czech/t-czech-green03.jpg) : (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v288/dencill/green-czech/t-czech-green04.jpg)

The taller one is 8" (20cm) tall, the smaller one is 6" (15cm) and both have indented bases with a ground base ring.

Any ideas on the maker?

Also, are there any other sizes in this range?

Rudolfova Hut part of Sklo Union by Rudolf Schrötter or Frantisek Vizner around 1940.

Good id, Peter, Schrotter, and as you say around 1940, with production, initally by Inwald, at Rudolfova, until the 1960's at least.
Sorry David, I can't confirm any other sizes.
Regards,
Marcus

Recently I managed to find another of these waisted vases except in a turquoise colour:

Note the slight difference in height.

I see from the eponymouse bullet vases...

... these were also designed by Rudolf Schrötter for Rudolfova Huť, so is it reasonable to assume there could be three other colours: amber, pink and blue? If so, that means five colours and two sizes! :roll:

David - here's my amber version referred to in the previous thread.  Stands 5.75" high.

Thanks for that Anne: I forgot to say these were both the 5¾" versions.

Can't help with yours Ivo, but I'm sure I've seen one like this offered on eBay. I also have two others that I keep meaning to ask about!

The first looks like a hand grenade, the second is an ashtray but with a totally flat ground & polished base. Any ideas on these?

I uploaded the same blue vase a few weeks ago David (what do you mean, you missed it??!!)  :wink:

Here's what Marcus said about it:

Quote
Max,
your blue vase, what size?
This is one of Frantisek Vizner's earliest designs for Sklo Union. Hermanova Hut, Plzen. around 1962.
Size should be around 20cm high.

A nice purchase.

 :oops:  Oops, yes I did miss it. I think around that time I was rather busy and wasn't visiting the board much. I'm sure you know what it's like when you come back... masses of new postings to wade through.

However, my vase is only 5¾" (14.5cm) tall so, once again, we are finding variations on a theme. Nice to have this information at last - I've had this vase for about 2 years :wink:

BTW, where is Marcus? Holiday :?: :?:  
He didn't ask permission to leave! :lol:

I have a feeling this is not a mystery, but among the last pieces designed by Frantisek Zemek, in the three years just before he died. This is most likely from Rudolfova Hut, between 1956 and 1959, as his designs for Hermanova H'ut, Plzen, were much more fluid.

Sorry Ivo, cannot be more definite than that, given the very small amount of contemporary published documentation. Is this large? as recently someone showed me an ash-tray in the same pattern.

Regards,

Marcus
