Another I need some help with

So pathetic are my IT skills, having to do one at a time:

Pair of "beaked".  9.5" high and a good 1cm thick at top with good ground and bevelled edges.  One of the Scandinavian makers, perhaps?

Olive Green/Smokey Glass Bottle with unusual shaped rim
« Reply #2 on: October 05, 2006, 12:21:51 AM »
Me again - just wondering if anyone had info on this bottle vase. It's a sort of dark olive smoked glass, is very heavy and has signs of age wear to the base - 9.5in/24cm tall.  What's most interesting is the very sharp cut and shape to the rim - sort of eye shaped and bevelled.  Thanks for any help ...

Yes, Czech - designed by Josef Hospodka. I think there was mention on W/F's.com when Richard bought one........

Can you please tell me another source than eBay descriptions that this piece can be attributed to Hospodka?
I have not find it anywhere in my resources for the meanwhile.
Thank you
Jindrich

Glad to see the brain cells are still active Max.  You are right and at the time it was thought to be Graal.

Jindrich,  I have seen the Hospodka attribution just recently,  but I now cannot find it.  I was given the Hospodka ID this morning by someone prominent in the glass world, so have assumed it was correct as it matched the previous information I saw ( and now can't find!)

What are your views on it?  Emmi

I have been informed by Graham Cooley that this is an early Hospodka, c. 1959 perhaps, as a similar vase with the same rim treatment, appeared in the Czech Glass Review of 1961.

Hi,

My attribution is based on two that were shown in the 'Hi Sklo Lo Sklo'exhibition of Graham Cooley's collection of Czech glass at KIng's Lynn last year. There were two on the top of the fish tank - in case anyone out there needs a mind jog (of course if you went to see it ;) :) ).

No, I haven't seen the Hi Sklo exhibition, fortunately here in Czech republic we have other museums where Czechoslovakian pieces are displayed.
In Glasrevue from 1961 I found only one Hospodka vase - in no 1, UMPRUM musem exhibits other, see coloured picture.

Not single one is simmilar to this. So my doubts persists.
