Flanged Vase
« on: August 27, 2005, 12:27:29 AM »
Just bought this vase and I am sure I have seen the shape somwhere before - can't pin it down - very distinctive - can anyone help - heavy cased and 10.5" tall - link - http://tinypic.com/b7atee.jpg - it has a Whitefriars look but it's not - base is ground but the rim is 'formed' and left rounded by maker

Thanks - I get Zelezny Brod Glass (ZBS) - Czech also made in Neodymium glass - which is like incandescant (glow in dark) - have lots of that incandescant glass and know the czech makers were masters - wow to think that such a heavy piece was treated in this way - I would love to collect a bit like that - I get designers from that factory (many small studios) as Pavel Hlava, S Libensky, J Tockstien - my millers fact file says they never signed - any idea what the vase is called and who designed it - also I know it's 60's - 70's but can that be confirmed - any other pics would be great - any idea of value (gulp - but has to be asked eh LOL)

Erm...I don't think Neodymium glass glows in the dark...  In my experience it's a pale lilac colour that simply changes hue to a greyish colour in different lighting situations.  I think the piece I have is Murano...

:oops: Yeah - I take the glow in dark bit back - I misread the following article - you are right and as the author goes on to say it is lavender that changes colour - it's like an early dichroic glass - first discovered in 1885 and patented by Moser and then used by a lot of companies including ZBS – it is rarer than iridescent or ‘Uranium‘ glass
 
"Do you have any of that glass which looks lavender in daylight or in incandescent light and then turns to a pale blue colour in fluorescent lighting, and it is or was referred to as Alexandrit or Alexandrite by Moser Glassworks; as Wisteria by The Fostoria Glass Company; as Twilight (but not Twilite nor Wistaria) by Tiffin Glass Company and as Dawn, if made by Tiffin in Duncan & Miller molds  but not Dawn, which is grey, if made by A. H. Heisey & Company, but instead as Alexandrite by Heisey ; as Wisteria by Steuben Glass Works; as Heatherbloom by The Cambridge Glass Company, but not all Heatherbloom; as Neo-Blue or Neodymium glass by Lotton Art Glass; as Alexandrite by Morgantown Glass Works; as Wisteria by Fenton Art Glass Company, but only that made in 1977 and 1978; as Alexandrite by Boyd`s Crystal Art Glass; as Pink Luxodine or Luxodin by  the Czech glass company of ZBS (Zeleznobrodske Sklo A. S.)" - author Judith Van Buskirk-Gugudan  :D

There's a rather nice example of a Neodymium vase under three different lighting conditions in a post by DenCill here on the board: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,1838.0.html

I just tested my vase under strong LED light and it turns pink - like sommerso at first - I have not tried it under UV - I wonder if it is Neodymium or just wierd?

One of mine does that.  Perhaps it's another rare earth in the mix.
