3 Czech pieces need ID-ing
« on: June 06, 2009, 09:47:52 PM »
Not 100% sure who designed & made these pieces(I think the first is from the 'Rhapsody' range, but not sure).

Any info is very much appreciated :-)

Hi.. I think the second vase is Skrdlovice.. the third looks like a Miloslav Klinger piece, I'm sure Jindrich will be along at some point to
advise. They are all lovely vases just the kind of items I'm after you are lucky to find them. Paul

1st - Frantisek Zemek, Mstisov, Rhapsody range
2nd - perhaps Skrdlovice - I am workong on confirmation
3rd - ┼ŻBS - often attributed to Klinger as Paul suggested - I need to study more to be sure with designer ...

I owned (and gave to a charity shop!) a vase the same shape as No.2.   My vase was in bright colours; bright green, blue and yellow.  Frankly, it was a monstrosity, and although nice and large I was glad to get rid of it....please don't tell me it's valuable now or I'll be verrry cross.

...actually...wonder if I've got a photo of it somewhere?  Maybe on my external hard drive, I'll have a look tomorrow.

Max,
this shape (no 2) appears here often, in different sizes and different colours.

Only the vase dispayed at attached picture is for the moment fully attributed Skrdlovice 5988/30 - Jan Beranek. In fact it is only longer shape originaly designed by Jan Kotik. This vase had been fabricated for many years, also in Beranek's privatised factory last year.
The simmilarity does not mean attribution, I am seeking confirmation for other shapes, but it is question rather for weeks than for days.
