Jindrich:

Thanks for the quick response. It's my piece. I bought it from a woman who lives near me in Vancouver, BC, Canada. She is selling her dead aunt's collection piece by piece. I t wasn't until recently that I thought it might be Czech. I did buy a Harrtil piece, which I did recognize, from her. Quite a lot of Czech glass turns up here, including Skrdlovice, often sold as Chalet.

I took the photographs very quickly. You're welcome to use them, but I'll retake them in the next couple of days and send them to you.

Once again, thanks for the information. Much appreciated.

Jindrich:

You asked if you could use the photographs I put on this thread. I said yes, but wanted to retake them. I've done so. Could you send me your email address to me as your email address is hidden. (I originally put the post on the wrong thread, if you're wondering why it has appeared twice. Sorry.)

Thanks

While searching for something completely different I found a great site on Magnor glass.
When I spotted the vase in the middle of the bottom row (Nr. 35) I remembered this thread about the Svobodova lookalike piece...

I would say there is not much doubt that they are from the same maker :)

Well spotted Michael.  That's not the first time a stylistic connection between Magnor and Skrdlovice has been discovered.  I'm beginning to wonder if the connection is purely accidental. If it were just the use of frit on the outside, I could see the coincidence, but there are also Magnor pieces that look like Kotik/Beranek vases.

Czech's did seem to go through a period of imitating Scandinavian design.. going by dates... anyway not why I am posting.

I would not call this a frit decoration more like a shards of glass decoration. It is an old technique but usually marvered flat and blown further to allow the colour to spread. In these examples they have shaped before picking up the shards.

Frit decoration has much smaller grains and of a uniform size. Results in a rough sandpaper texture if not worked much. Emulated in the 50s with enamel transfers (Search 'crinkles' on gmb).

Frank:

To me it's a toss-up whether it's frit or shards.  Frit, as I understand it, is smashed up Kugler rod of similarly sized pieces of the same colour. You can buy it in different sizes, 0 - 4, 0 being the smallest, or you can make it yourself. Shard I'd take to mean pieces of blown glass broken into various sizes. I usually take it that if the glass come from a colour rod, it's frit; if from a broken piece of glass, then it's shards. Ultimately, it's the same thing: picking up pieces of glass on the gather but not incorporating them fully into the body of the glass. I'm not sure at what size frit becomes shards.
