Thick glass object - information needed
« on: January 21, 2010, 04:09:44 PM »
I am a volunteer selling on Ebay for a charity - I need help identifying this object so that I can give it a good description when I list it.   I think it might be Czech or Bohemian glass, but would like to be sure.   It stands approx.  8 ins (20cm) tall to the tip of the points, and stands on a very small, square base.   The glass is thick and heavy.  The colour is gold shading upwards to pink - the base is clear - I think it is cased.   Thanks for any help anyone can give.

Almost certainly Chribska, a Czech factory.

Hi kmax70,
I agree with Christine. I would describe it as Czech/Bohemian,but age wise, it could be 1960s-2010
Its not a rare item, although quite a task to make, but at a guess 20-30 pounds would be all
you could expect (unlees you get lucky)
Cheers
Andy

more than likely a Josef Hospodka piece for chribska glassworks czech (similar in stlye to the "cats head" piece in Mark Hills book, is this shape called the "bulls head"?), there is a few listed on ebay currently including the one in the link

although its not a Union piece, so the title/description is slightly incorrect calling it sklo Union

Many thanks for your help on this, Michelle and Andy.   I'll go with that description.   It is a very chunky object - I assume it is meant to be a vase, or  just a "whatnot".   Kathleen
