Kingfisher blue waisted (?) vase
« on: March 28, 2010, 12:35:10 PM »
Sorry again my lack of correct words in this area and foreign language I do not know how to describe this vase factwise,
how would you put it in words, please?  :-\

It is 19,5cm high, diameters 17,5 down to 10,5 cm.
The colour is very much the same kingfisher blue of what I see in my Sklo Union Hermanova vase.
Also the base could be there, however I am doubtful and still looking forward to receiving my Sklo union book, so I wouldn't know.
And we have this saying "A pessimist will not get disappointed"  :P  ::)  and whatever it is I think it's beautiful!

Hi px,

Your vase appears to be pattern number 982 from the Sklo Union factory at Rosice.  :D (It is in the 1987 Rosice catalogue on the CD database which comes with the Sklo Union: Art before Industry book, by Marcus Newhall)

The colour is turquoise (colour number 22) according to the Rosice colour guide.
Enjoying being in the Midlands.......some people are just amazing....

Paul;  me being some 1000 miles away and new to this forum I may not quite get your jokes, but I don't mind - I can only say I've heard about Downing Street and Portobello Road....but I suppose then "Della's street" is somewhere there, maybe not physically in between but mentally?   ::)  I'm happy with that.  ;)

sorry px  -  my humour is falling flat again.   Della Street was the character name of the zealous Woman Friday to Perry Mason in the American film and tv fictional stories of the same name.   She played his secretary, and Paul Drake was his right hand man.   Erle Stanley Gardner created the stories which started in the cinema in the mid thirties and were probaly still being shown on the tv into the nineties.    I will stop making puns.   On the other hand Portobello Road and Dowing Street are real streets  -  although don't think you will find much glass in our Prime Minister's road.   Really like your vase.    cheers.

Oh no, Paul, please don't stop making "puns" - now that I've just learned the word! I love them - at least when they're so thoroughly explained when I don't get them at all ...  ;D  :24:

(For the other members who try to manage with English as a foreign language: "A pun, or paronomasia, is a form of word play that deliberately exploits an ambiguity between similar-sounding words for humorous or rhetorical effect Such ambiguity may arise from the intentional misuse of homophonical, homographical, homonymic, polysemic, metonymic, or metaphorical[citation needed] language." ) ;)

 I know "Perry Mason" is a well known attorney character and surely some of the movies have been shown in our tv too but I've missed them so Della Street - never heard of... (now I know 3 streets in your country)  ;D

which I'm certain you did Della :)

px wow! - you have such wonderful English!  - however, sometimes I have to remind myself that Anne (moderator) is strict ;), and likes to keep the 'Glass' site for matters relating to glass  -  otherwise she will throw us off, into the Cafe ;D......so if you want a conversation on anything other than glass, that is where you and I must go.
