Can anyone ID this green glass vase?
« on: July 07, 2009, 04:43:41 PM »
The vase measures 15cm in height. Chunky glass. It has the 4 dimpled sides. It's hard to photograph because of the reflection!
Thanks again for your help,
Vickie Purves :hiclp:

I think the designer is Rudolf Schrotter and designed in the 50s, made in lots of colours in Czechoslovakia. Sometimes known as a bullet vase, is yours uranium glass?

I see some very recent things from China that look much like this vase.

Thankyou for your replies. I looked up the name on Ebay and found someone selling one. It is titled Sklo Union Glass 'Lens' Vase by Rudolf Schrötter c 1955. It was full of cobwebs and a dead spider when I got it, so it must a genuine old one, not from china.

Thankyou for your help in identifying it,
Best Wishes
Vickie

They were made in two sizes (that I have seen), around 15cm and 20cm I think. On page 46 of Sklo Union Art Before Industry there is a photo of one in clear glass next to a ceramic copy.

They have cobwebs and spiders in China too. ;D

Moulds do get sold sometimes, I wonder if any of these were bought by a company in China, or would they just make their own? Some Czech moulds ended up in Italy.

James, what did you see that reminds you of this design?

Hmmm — Interesting.   Do I detect hints of attribution by popular vote?  ;D

No, by reference to Marcus' book and CD, Bernard, both of which I'm *very* familiar with. 8)

I'm pretty sure this colour is what Marcus referred to as Spring Green when we were discussing it late last year when he was staying with us.
