Vase, blue suspended tear drop bubble in base...origin?
« on: May 09, 2008, 05:45:12 PM »
I had trouble deciphering the photo's when I bought this, and I'm no nearer to knowing anything about this vase now it's in my hands!   :huh:

My first thought is that it's Czech, because those colours just don't say Italian to me.  The suspended bubble is interesting, there's no hole at the base (which shows considerable wear) I guess there was a gather of glass over it.

It's 21cm high (yay! I've gone European!) and a peculiar pinkish orange.  Any ideas??  Thanks. xx

The last photo is a little misleading.  The bubble isn't suspended so far away from the base. 

Hmm...Leni...you could be right!  I'll have a dig around. x

The Jablonskis sign all their work as far as I know, so I would think Chrbska or Skrdlovice.

I thought only the 'Studio' pieces by Adam Jablonski himself were signed, and that the 'ordinary' pieces weren't signed  :huh:  Where did I get that idea?  I can never remember  :-[  ::)

Thanks Krsilber  ;)

I was hoping Skrdlovice Ivo, but it doesn't seem entirely right.  Maybe Chribska then...I'll ask Marcus to have a look when he's got a moment.

Thanks Leni, I've become a bit rusty on glass, and need propping up a bit with makers until I get my 'glass head' screwed back on again (ouch!).  Jablonski is a good hunch.

Anyway, you can see why this one left me a bit confused...just plain odd, isn't it?!  I like odd though.   ;)

Not the same but the nearest I've found with a label so far http://www.everettgallery.net/3dartists/euport/flarevase.htm
I've seen many on the bay over the years but I don't remember one with the base bubble. Ed.

I have searched many times and finally I have now found the Chribska company website.
The colored bubble seems to be a recent addition to a Chribska classic form as I suspected.
