Jindrich,

Given your access to copies of the Czech Glass Review and your obvious experience of Czech glass I am now concerned about the attribution, especially as Graham Cooley has kindly confirmed to Emmi his attribution is based upon a similar vase seen in the Czech Glass Review and not an identical one.

Hi,
Like Jindrich, I would not have attributed this to Hospodka. The rim design is however, one that is found in the design output of Vaclav Hanus, for Jablonecke Sklo. That is one of the two Czech producers which would spring immediately to mind for this item, the other being ZBS.
(CGR is, as Jindrich and I know only too well, not the infallible contemporary resource one might assume).
Regards,
Marcus

Hi Emmi

Whoops, 2yrs out, that's what you get doing things from memory; Its CGR 1963 p161 (I think; can't quiet see the last digit on my photocopy); designed in 1962 by Josef Hospodka; different shape, as I mentioned, but the same top.

Hi Graham, the top on these bottles is very distinctive - can you provide us with the image of the item you refer to as having 'the same top'?

Good try Graham!
I have found that in German version of Glasrevue your page is 165.  :hiclp:

Anyway, based od similar shape of rim I would not attribute it generaly to Hospodka, but the suspicion is relevant.
Seems to me better would be alway reffer to year/month of CGR rather then year page - page numbering is different in language versions.

Hi,

From Graham's picture I would certainly agree that the tops of the vases are identical. It would seem logical to me, and typical of the czech practice to simply the designs for "mass production", that they were Hospodka. I've seen many of the vases like Emmi's at fairs etc and they all seem to come in the typical czech colours aswell - such as the citrine and lilac colours that the common Klinger pieces are found in.

Cheers,

Richard

Just a notice, Klinger had designed for Zeleznobrodské sklo n.p. (ZBS) and Hospodka for Chribska and Prachen, both factories subsidiary of Borské sklo n.p. Hospodka's bottles were never fabricated in "mass production" and in fact you can find them rather in museums than at markets.

Suprising me also, that this piece I have not seen anywhere here, in Czech republic but I have seen it 4 times at UK eBay.
Jindrich
